Random Photos & Random Linkages!

this morning from my porch
My good friend and co-editor/publisher at R&T Angie, Gumbo Writer, will have her Writerly Wednesday links up today - and very worthy and good links they always are, so head on over there and check them out. I won't repeat them here, but add a few of my own:

The SIBA Trade show, September 24-26, is almost here. I'll be there with my publishers. As well, I'll be on the Writer's Block, and proceeds will go to charity. If you are going, let me know and we'll say hello!

Litchat is celebrating 50 years of To Kill A Mockingbird. On Friday, I'll be their guest moderator. It's a twitter group for writers, readers, and anyone who loves books and literature and related, and all are welcome to come chat with us. Litchat is on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 4-5, every week. Click LITCHAT for more information.

Rose & Thorn is now reading for winter issue. We're reading prose/poetry submits now for fall, and it's going to be a tough decision. I wish we could publish all the worthy prose and poety. I hope you'll stop by the R&T Blog and subscribe - there's always something good going on there and we post every Wednesday.

Alexandra Sokoloff is brilliant. If you haven't been by her blog, and especially if you are writing, then go by. She has a unique way of 'seeing' your manuscript, as it applies to scripts and movies, screenwriting - it's facinating stuff.

I've been going by Writer's News Weekly. I read my writer's horoscope there and laugh because lately they've been hitting the nail on the head for old Pisces Girl here *teehee* They have other offerings as well, so go by and give them a look.

Teresa Frohock at Helluo Librorum has an new agent, and her interview with her is up. Have a peek inside the mind of an up and coming agent.

I found this grammar blog when I was trying to prove my point to someone that it is Most Important/More Important, and not Most/More ImportantLY . . .

And for fun- this Geico Commercial makes me laugh every time I see it. I generally hate commercials, but sometimes they hit it right. The look on Abe Lincoln's and on his Wife's face---teeheehee.

I forgot one here: Blind Pig & an Acorn has a wonderful blog about Appalachia (APP AH LATCH CHUH, not App ah LAY SHUN!) & she's having a Guitar Give away . . .
first signs of fall
I want to say hello and thank you to new followers. We had a labor day BBQ at KarenG's place and folks were a-visitin' and a grinnin' -- I've met some wonderful new bloggers and they've come by to say hi as well. It's not too late to join in on visiting and getting to know new blogger friends.

Finally, I hope you'll come follow me on
And, if you have links to share, leave them in the comments. Or, if you are new here, invite us to come visit you at your blog and say hello!
Now y'all go do the day!

Fun to take a run through your neighborhood and catch some of your favorite internet spots. Working on a story to submit for R&T Winter edition. Have a great day!

The pics made my eyes watery for some reason.

As you begin your word journey, do you construct a map or outline of any type first?

Thx for the links

Kathryn Magendie said...

Hi everyone! Love seeing your smiling faces here - and if you weren't smiling, I'm still picturing you that way *laugh*

John - I am a "seat of the pantster" as someone called it - no outlines - wish I could outline, but my brain shuts down at the thought - I just put fingers to keys and let the black hole provide! :-D

john bord said...

I tend to write by the me pants seat but I have found out it is easier for me if I have an idea where I am going. I use notes on what I want to cover, my points and then let them guide me. I can not outline but working from directions to self helps me. Sometimes it is no more then a page.
I tutored GED students some years ago and one of the things in the book was using balloons of ideas/thoughts then organize them. After I got them into the idea of making notes on their essays they then had success writing their essays and passing the writing part of the English section.

There were some novelists I studied that used only outlines. their book would be 400 pages, the outline 600-700 pages. Never could get into that mind set.... then I haven't written a book.

Have a good day writing.

Deb Shucka said...
