Writing Roundup

Though I haven’t written about writing on here for some time, I’m not idle. I’ve been over at the Gig every week, wrestling through the issues that come up in the craft as they come. Here’s a roundup of posts over there as well as a roundtable of posts I’ve been reading:

Lancelot Grapples Style 001: I finally read the end of Strunk & White (instead of just reading the first 3/4 for the sixth time) and posted lessons learned. There’s also a part 2.

When Did Self-Publishing Begin?  – This is a rant on issues I’ve had with the discussion of self-publishing, as well as the issue of legitimizing the writing craft in a world that doesn’t take it seriously.

What About First Lines? — Wrestling through the first sentence of a novel.

What Right Have We to Write? — Weakness is strength in writing.

Is Writer’s Block for Real? — Mythbusting writer’s block.
