Saturday Special



There are Sparks everywhere at Christine Tyler's SparkBlogfest. I loved this post about critique partners over at Jeigh's blog. Where would we be without those wonderful beta readers who care about writing and care about their writing partners. Mine are incredible: Mel Higgins  and Yvonne V(check her out on Twitter @YvonneVentresca) Here's another thanks to you for all your help.

You might check out Angela Cothran Live to Write...Edit When Necessary for some her Sparks. They are great books to add to your reading list. And then go over to Theresa Milstein's Substitute Teacher's Saga for some summer reading suggestions.

As to what Sparked my interest in writing, I've already told everyone in my first post, but the Spark that's kept me writing is just as important. Books that kept me going: Poisonwood Bible, The Way We Were and anything by Kingsolver. There are others, but these always pop into my head when I think of books that moved me and made me want to write more.




Just because I don't want any grass growing under my feet-- know cliche alert, but get over it for just this one time, please. RACH WRITES has a wonderful blog hop going on to build your platform. Come on board and meet some new writers.

  3. Lee - I am so glad you stopped by my blog! I love Michelle Zink - what an awesome lady she is! Looks like we also have the Alic in Wonderland thing in common as well - I love all things Alice and even have the beginnings of a mashup/retelling of the story (though that may remain just my guilty little pleasure ;)).

    You are definitely going on my list of blogs to watch - btw LOVE the interview.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
