The penultimate Sunday Sharing of the year before I switch my focus to some end-of-year reflective posts and make plans for what my blog will look like in 2022.
Whilst I have started a new draft for a fiction piece, most of this week’s writing can be viewed on my blog. This includes three poems I wrote and a piece on my relationship with music. My fourth newsletter also went out earlier this week.
For this reason, I’ve decided to just share a list of 10 things I’ve read from around the web this week. And I read quite a number of things, so narrowing down this list to 10 was hard. But here’s what I settled on:
- From Sam Missingham‘s latest edition of The Empowered Author newsletter: this excellent guide on creating an author press kit from Susan Neal. | Author Media
- The same excellent newsletter directed me to John Wiswell’s invaluable Twitter thread on how he submits short stories. The Nebula-winning author has also compiled this thread into an easy-to-read blog post on his Patreon. | Twitter
- Hussein Kesvani relaunched his newsletter last month with a new title: The Draft Folder. I think his piece on “Why Productivity and Motivation #Content Is A Political Project Too” is very much worth a read. | Substack
