We’re light on the articles of note this week. There’s been good stuff out there, but it’s been a looooooooonnnnngggggggg week. Here’s some stuff I’ve read:
Career Authors is the blog that keeps on giving. Paula Munier had a fabulous “Ten Commandments” for writers.
Marie Claire published a sobering piece about “invisible victims” – Native American women who’ve disappeared without a trace and the effort made by other Native American women to find them. Heartbreaking.
I have an unabashed girl crush on Taffy Brodesser-Akner (to the extent that I am sad that her debut novel and its book tour won’t be coming to the Midwest. Dammit!). I love reading her articles and clicked through nearly every link that GQ posted in their Tweet honoring her debut novel. (PS – Google search “Taffy Brodesser-Akner Sugar Daddies GQ” – it is worth the click.)
Listening: I miss David Bowie. And I usually am fairly “meh” on covers, but this one was not terrible:
Reading: Reading Layne Fargo’s forthcoming “Temper.” So very good.
Writing Life: I had a wonderful time with Rhonda Gilliland earlier this month at the Kahler Grand Hotel (Peacock Books). We had an event in support of her Cooked To Death anthologies.
I even wore mascara. And didn’t stab myself in the eye with the wand. #winning
What is Friday Fare? As a recap, on Fridays I post link love to the various bits of arcane shiz I discover on the Interwebs. I liken it to a glimpse into my mind, but without the 80s song lyrics or mental cobwebs.
