Saturday Edition – What We’re Writing and Reading

Welcome to this Saturday Edition of What We’re Writing and Reading.

We’re taking a little detour on the weekends now to share some of what we’re up to with our writing (when we’re not here) and what we’re into with our reading (around the web). We’ll also pull back the curtain a little to give you a behind-the-scenes look at what went into a piece.

We hope you enjoy this little diversion and encourage you to share your own posts and picks in the comments.

Happy writing! Happy reading!

headshot_jw_thumbnailJamie Wallace: I hope those of you who celebrate it had a lovely Fourth of July. Having the holiday in the middle of the week sent me all off kilter, though I could just as easily blame my slight unbalance on the heat. I don’t know about you, but the kind of hot and humid weather we’ve been having around here always takes the wind right out of my sails and leaves me day dreaming of crisp autumn days – sweater and boot days, hot tea and toast days, fire on the hearth days. I suppose I should be grateful that I’m not out in Death Valley where the temps have been hitting triple digits to the tune of 129 degrees. You can cook things at that temperature!

Anyway, it’s been a busy week with a large, rush project on my plate – a lovely new client for whom I”m doing rebranding and website copywriting. That has kept me pretty tied up (and will do for the next few weeks), so I didn’t have much time for writing (other than my morning pages); but I did manage to get some reading in. I finished My Name is Mina (affiliate link)  which I mentioned in last week’s Saturday edition. I am working on a post about the book – not a review, but how the way the story was written has given me new inspiration. Really lovely.

Also – as always – I did manage to get some blog reading in. Here are my favorite writing-related posts from the week:

CRAFT & THE WRITING LIFE

PUBLISHING & BUSINESS

INSPIRATION & ENCOURAGEMENT

And – hey – if you are on Twitter and would like to get these tweets each day, follow me at @suddenlyjamie. I have a pretty serious Twitter habit and I love company … especially the company of other writers. 😉 (If you’d like me to follow you back, please @message me!)

  1. Great advice from Dina Sitar. Those 15 minutes blocks do turn into hours.
