Links, links, and more links

I realize it's been a while since I shared links to good stuff others have pointed me to or I've found around the internet while avoiding writing researching the writing craft.

So, without further ado:

A Series of Blog Posts on The Strength of the Harry Potter Series

The Top 10 Peeves from Booksellers and Readers about Author Websites.

Elizabeth Spann Craig talks about not settling for your first idea on Improving on an Idea.

And, if you must, How to Write a Good Prologue.

Author Saundra Mitchell's excellent post on marketing (with links) and how You're Not Gonna Spend a Lot Marketing This Book.

Agent Janet Reid's 2009 rejection stats.

This post from Steve Laube might perhaps change your perspective on rejection in the publishing industry.

A fun read about misplaced modifiers.

"Writing can be learned. Syntax can be taught. Determination is yours and yours alone."< From this Query Shark post.

I love these posts. You're a fountain of knowledge, Jaime. (P.S. Thanks for being so gracious the other night. Sorry to have mauled you.)

Thanks for the links, Jaime! I had a couple of these already, but there were some new ones in there.

Looking forward to the next time we get to par-tay!

Oh, great. More things to look up online instead of write! :/

Thanks for the awesome links though! :)
