Around the Web

Back from strolling about the 'net and I have some links!

Over at Spinetingler, author, Jeff Shelby talks about breaking the rules of writing a series. http://www.spinetinglermag.com/2011/10/25/breaking-rules-by-jeff-shelby/

Chris Rhatigan talks about Grift magazine and his conversation with editor, John Kenyon. http://death-by-killing.blogspot.com/2011/10/grift-magazine.html

Louise Ure has a beautiful post over at Murderati today that really makes you stop and think about life. http://murderati.com/blog/2011/10/25/park-bench-conversations.html

And the lovely Brian Lindenmuth always finds the best links! Here's three that he sent me recently. Many thanks, kind sir!

This first one is a four part formula for turning a story into fiction. A short, concise guide for writing those lovely short stories. http://nielsenhayden.com/makinglight/archives/013243.html#013243

Blake Butler lists twenty-two things he learned from submitting his writing. http://htmlgiant.com/behind-the-scenes/22-things-i-learned-from-submitting-writing/

What I found interesting about this last post is not that the author had a story accepted, but that he actually had the balls to submit to a closed market. Which got me thinking, how damn famous do you have to be to just send a publisher a story? I know I couldn't get away with doing something like that. And this guy's name isn't Stephen King. http://nihilistic-kid.livejournal.com/1664478.html
