Writers’ Roundup: August 20

Friday means links!

  • Author Dani Shapiro on the importance of alone time, and finding the balance between thinking about life and actually living it.
  • Short but super post from The Mobile Lawyer about how travel inspires memory. A must-read for travel memoirists.

Be sure to check back here Monday for an interview with an author who wrote more than a dozen books — more than a dozen! — before she was finally published.

It’s Friday the 13th! Lucky, right?

Have a great weekend!

Writers’ Roundup: August 6

You know the drill… Time for links!

  • Should you write for free? (I say no.) The Traveling Philosopher weighs in on what he calls the devaluation of words at the Huffington Post.
  • If you’re still not sure you should use Twitter (haven’t I convinced you already?), literary agent Janet Reid offers yet another reason. I nag, I know. Because I want you to succeed!
  • Author Mary Carroll Moore blogs about writing retreats and what happens when you’re alone with your creativity.

On a side note, I’m running my first-ever social media giveaway for a client this month. And it’s a damn good giveaway, which is why I’m telling you about it — a trip to Iceland! To enter, simply “like” Overland Experts’ Facebook page or follow us on Twitter and RT our giveaway tweet. Enter, travel friends! Here are the contest details.

Have a great weekend!

I could care less what Chelsea Clinton wears at her wedding this weekend. What I DO care about are great links from this week on writing and social media. Enjoy.

On Monday we’ve got an interview with the author of The Art of Solo Travel about e-book publishing and, of course, traveling solo. Don’t miss it!

Writers’ Roundup: July 9

My favorite links from this week:

  • Chris Brogan on the importance of Confidence and Conviction. Always a good reminder. I’m a big believer that this can make or break you.
  • A post at The Fearless Journalist about personal freedom verses loneliness: Free to be lonely. Made me think.

Check back here Monday for Part II of Blogging 101!

Wow, lots less time to go through my Google Reader this week now that I have clients! But it’s a good trade. Here’s what I’ve got for you:

  • Punky Brewster is coming out with a memoir! Well, the woman who played her is, anyhow. Who else will buy this?
