Writers' Roundup: December 18
December 18, 2009
Slim pickings in my Google Reader this week. Here are my faves:
- Please stand to the right (if you’re a loser), from adventurer Alastair Humphreys. “Standing on the right (of the escalator) is a metaphor for complacency,” he writes. “Is that REALLY the best use of 20 extra seconds of your life?”
- When writing becomes revision, check out these eight articles compiled by Chuck Sambuchino at Guide to Literary Agents. This post is particularly helpful for me since I’m in the midst of revising.
- My former colleague and friend Lindsay Wise (along with photog Mayra Beltran) is off to Iraq to cover the war for the Houston Chronicle. I’m following her blog, not only for the information she’s provide, but also because I love that she’s making her dream of becoming a war correspondent happen.
It’s the last weekend before Christmas! In between all your shopping, present-wrapping, tree-decorating and cookie-baking, I hope you can find a few minutes to write.

Some good articles in there. Thanks!
Hope your revision process is going well, Alexis. Can’t wait for the next step of your journey. My writing is not going well. I’m just letting it all go until after the New Year.
The link to Humphreys’ site is broken; you can find the article at http://www.alastairhumphreys.com/2009/12/stand-loser.
I’m working my way through these and enjoying them immensely. Humphreys’ site in particular is so interesting! I love what he wrote about sailing the Atlantic, which is something I’d like to do someday.
Thanks! I’ll fix it.
really looking forward to checking out the social networking one cause i love doing it but it also takes up so much TIME!
