Writers’ Roundup: January 27

January 27, 2012 · 4 comments

Happy weekend!

Here are a few links to get you thinking:

  • Enjoyed this post from my Brazen colleague Whitney Parker, who shares her fashion consulting experience with CakeStyle. I, too, am not a shopper — Might have to give this a try!
  • Us writers are always complaining about how many horrible books have managed to get published. Now GalleyCat feeds into that with a list of 10 bestselling books with more than 80 one-star reviews.
  • If you’re going to stop sitting around and start doing, you’ve got to surround yourself with doers, Joel Runyon says. So true!
  • Check out how traveler Katie Aune reduced her spending and saved enough cash for her career break.
  • Incorrect use of the apostrophe is this editor’s pet peeve. Thankfully, author Terry Odell reminds us how to use the “humble apostrophe” correctly.

See you Monday!

Hey, Alexis!

My mom, of all people, first told me about the audiobooks.com. Excited to check it out, as I never seem to have time to actually sit down and actually *read* all the books on my list. Have you tried it out yet?

Congrats on all the sales of your social media guide! Awesome.

Hey — I haven’t tried it yet! Would love to hear from someone who has… I’m not a huge listener of audio books though.

Thanks for introducing me to Joel Runyon’s “Blog of Impossible Things”! I love it, especially this post because my Dad always talks about “doers” and “thinkers” (I’ll have to tell him about the wishers). Now that I’ve changed my life into the one I’ve always wanted to live, I’m happy that I am unquestionable in the doer camp. It feels good. I love your writer’s roundups, I always find something interesting. Thanks Alexis.
