Writers’ Roundup: September 17

September 17, 2010

By the time you read this, I’ll be on my way to Georgia for two weeks at a writer’s residency! More on that next week.

My favorite links from this week:

  • The world’s first airport library. Love it. From MediaBistro’s GalleyCat.
  • Social media thug Marian Schembari offers a solid checklist for what you should include on your blog. Do you have everything she suggests?
  • Memoirists: Have you ever asked yourself whether you might write about your life as a novel instead? Literary agent Michael Larsen tells us when it’s a good idea.
  • ZenHabits points out some of the simple joys of smaller living. She’s right that when I take time to enjoy what I’m doing, I get more out of it.
  • Nieman Journalism Lab interviews author Susan Orlean about the persona — a very popular one — she’s created for herself on Twitter. This is a must-read for any writer who wants to connect with readers via social media.

That’s it for this week! Enjoy your weekend. And try not to do as much driving as I am.
