Author Inspiration and Last Week’s Writing Links

If you aren’t following Staci Troilo’s “Author Inspiration & Last Week’s Writing Links,” which she shares every Monday morning, you really should! Great stuff here. I save every one of these posts for future reference, and refer back to the links often. Thanks for a wonderful series of posts, Staci! 🙂

Ciao, amici! I’ve been trying to pay more attention to scene-setting in my work, so I’ve been extra conscious of imagery lately. To that end, this quote by Shira Tamir really spoke to me this week:

has never watched them dancing on a windy day.

It’s easy to glance at leaves on the ground and think, “Ugh. I need to rake those.” And honestly, if a character said that in a book, I’d easily relate to it. But how nice to know there are people who can look past the inconvenience to see the beauty in the world. 

I want to write that way. But I also want to live that way. And I’m wishing the same peace and awareness for all of you.

And now, last week’s writing links:
