This week the writer’s links feature marketing information geared toward authors, recommendations about writers’ conferences, and a few research links. I particularly thought the longsword fighting video was excellent for all you fantasy writers out there. Enjoy!
The topics for this week’s link roundup are a range of subjects, they feature more about handwriting, marketing as an author, and general writing topics. I’ve also included an article about slide rules. Why? Well, Robert Heinlein’s science fiction is filled with references to this mathematical tool and I’ve been fascinated about them for that reason. Call it a quirk!
My love for fountain pens and typewriters caught up with me this week. Suddenly, I discovered several good articles on the subject in addition to my usual blend of articles about the writing process. They are a little unusual, but I hope you find them as interesting as I did.
Character development is a particular passion of mine. I like to create characters that feel like real people in my stories. So have a look through the links, there are ones on general writing too, but for the most part, this week are lessons in making memorable characters of your own.
