It is officially fall, so I suppose that the Summer 2013 Thieves’ Quarry Blog Tour has to be over. But the Fall Blog Tour is now underway and today I am all over the place. I have my usual Monday post up at Magical Words, the group blog on the craft and business of writing that I maintain with Faith Hunter, Misty Massey, Mindy Klasky, John Hartness, James Tuck, and several others. Today’s post is called “On Writing: Outlining Vs. Pantsing Revisited,” and it’s about the reasons I have grown more committed to outlining my books
My second post is at SFNovelists, another group blog that I maintain with over one hundred other published authors of fantasy and science fiction. This post is called “Thoughts on Giving a Reading,” and it offers a bit of advice to aspiring writers getting ready to do their first public readings of their work.
Finally, I am a guest today at Mike Dariano’s blog, 27 Good Things. Mike invites artists and recognized professionals in various fields to blog about three Good Things to Read, three Good Things to Watch, and three Good Things to Use. It’s a fun site — I certainly enjoyed writing my entry. So what things did I choose? Well, you’ll just have to visit the site and see.
I hope you enjoy today’s posts.
