Weekend Reads - Pay it Forward - Part 2

Continuing my support of the Pay it Forward blogfest, I'd like to share a few other good links with everyone. First up, I found CA Marshall's blog about word counts to be helpful. I have just finished another book and wasn't sure if it would be considered a novella or novel. Thanks to her blog, I have a set of goals to reach. You can find the blog here.

Looking at our list of blogs below, I found a lot of other good posts. Tyrean shows us the biggest bookstore in the world, right here in PDX. Tamson Weston visits Literary Rambles, giving us The Top 5 Picture Book Tips from Successful Agents. Writing in a Nutshell brings us some tips for writing and From Pen to Paper talks about insecurities while submitting your story to contests.

Also, Mark Noce asks you what you're doing for National Book Month. Good question.

Here is the list of blogs we all get a chance to find. There are some really wonderful blogs out there. Go check a few out and share them with your friends.

So, I'm planning to go to Wordstock tomorrow. Hoping that I can get myself to move well enough to make it through a day on my feet. It should be a lot of fun. The speakers were great last year and we got to meet so many good authors.

So what are you doing this weekend?

Awesome links Dravin. Thanks for the word count one, I'll be checking that out as I'm writing a short story - or novella - definitely not a flash :)

Good luck at Wordstock. I'd love to go to a workshop, but there are none in my area right now. I'm beta reading this weekend - and should not be online, but I needed the break.

Have a good day.

Great blog list Draven. Where do you find the time? I tried my hand at horror writing. Annie Conda. It was fun. Reggie.

Donna - Thanks for stopping by today. I hope the word count one helps. Who are you beta reading for? I just finished one and hopping into another book.

Regge - I cloned myself. Did you like writing horror? Checking out your site.

Hey, found your blog through my friend Julie (the amazing writer you just spotlighted). Great links! I've already checked them out and they're all really cool. Glad you started paying it forward a little early. Can't wait to see more on the 14th when we all catch up with you!
