I love blogging because it helps me feel connected to the writing community. Even better is all the stuff I learn from reading blogs. A few things I learned this week:
1) Some mistakes that get in the way of establishing a strong POV in your writing (Kathryn Craft over at the Blood-Red Pencil )
2) Tips for writing a synopsis of your story in a query letter (thanks to Meganrebekah’s blog)
3) Different approaches agents have and how they might affect your writing career (another great post by Rachelle Gardner)
4) A recipe for a good coconut cookie (from CakeSpy)
I also read a great article about critique groups and how they benefit writers, though it’s not new to me, because I have an awesome critique group that does all these things (guest post by Maurissa Guibord over at Adventures in Children’s Publishing).
