I am a serial reader and love non-fiction articles. For me to find it again and for you to enjoy, I’ll share it here weekly.
1) I find it difficult to break into the freelance market. I’ve tried so many places and were rejected every time. Gwen shares a surprising place where she ‘stumbled’ upon a writing job. I don’t want to write in certain previous experience areas purely because my knowledge is outdated for more than 8 years already. This is a reminder though of work closer to home. http://www.makealivingwriting.com/great-freelance-work-on-my-doorstep/
2) Kristen Lamb is one of my fav writing mentors. In this article she names and discusses some sins and virtues of prologues. I am on the fence still about prologues. I like to go through a book curious and discovering through the book all the past secrets. But then again, it is probably one of those virtues only certain writers get right so beautifully. http://warriorwriters.wordpress.com/2014/07/14/the-seven-deadly-sins-of-prologues-3/
That’s all from me this week. Enjoy it!
