You are never gonna believe this. Guess what happened. Guess. Okay, don’t guess, ’cause you can’t. This guy from England contacted me through this website and suggested a post on his blog for Friday Recommends. Here, look:
From: Martin Cavannagh Subject: Your Friday Recommendations Message Body: Hi Marian, I'm Martin from Reedsy – a small publishing network based over in London. I've just published something that I hope you’ll find suitable for your Friday recommendations feature. It's a comprehensive guide to the pros and cons of writing in Third Person Limited and Third Person Omniscient. https://blog.reedsy.com/third-person-omniscient-vs-limited It was created in response to questions a lot of our authors would ask and it covers a lot of the benefits of writing from both viewpoints — although all the editors we spoke to weren't fans of authors using an omniscient narrator! Our designer Matt even came up with a fun comic-style infographic to illustrate the main points. I hope this is something your readers might find of interest. Please do get in touch if you have any questions at all. All the best, Martin
Well, Martin, your hopes are well-founded, because I read the post and it’s super! Y’all go look at it and see what else Reedsy has to offer.
Writer Unboxed is all about the craft and business of writing fiction. Nothing about the agony, boredom, humiliation, or vindictive satisfaction, but lots about the craft and business. Great stuff, too, especially the polls, when you can vote on whether you like certain work or not. Fun for readers as well as writers.
Did you ever hear of Plotto? I had never heard of it before yesterday. It’s a book, written in 1928, that Alfred Hitchcock and Erle Stanley Gardner swore by. Brain Pickings tells all about it. Me, I’m waiting until somebody makes an app out of it. Anyone? Anyone?
Now my favorite school fundraiser has got to be World’s Finest Chocolate. I’ve been known to stop my car and chase children down the street screaming, “TAKE MY MONEY!!!” But I have a new favorite — theoretically, since I haven’t seen it in practice, although I’d love to. It’s called FarmRaiser, and it pairs schools with local farms to provide fresh, local products to the buyers. Yeah, I’d take some of that.
And then, and then, and then, I WOULD TOAST IT! Here’s another thing I never heard of until this week. Toaster Grilled Cheese Bags! You make your sammich, right, and you put it in this bag, right, and you put it in the toaster and make grilled cheese in the toaster! Or put whatever in and make grilled whatever! I gotta get somma these. Totes!
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about toast. It’ll be fun!
