Hello everyone. Whichever of you is in charge of keeping time from galloping away is losing control. See to it, please. The rest of you can play.
1] A little while back I posted Murphy’s Laws for Writers, Pt. 1. A couple of days ago, part 2 landed in my inbox. Head over to read Peter’s laws for writers. He provides a link to Part 1, if you haven’t seen them, or don’t quite remember. I like many things about Peter’s laws. For one thing, he knows what of he speaks; for another, they are short.
2] Poets & Writers continues to update and present us with databases. A couple of weeks ago I gave you a link to contests. Today, how about a database of magazines? There are only about 1,000. Start winnowing. Create your own database.
3] I mentioned Miz Quickly’s return a couple of days ago, but this is the official announcement. Miz Q, she comes and goes. We never know quite when she will pop up and when she might disappear, so get your rabbit hunting gear on and visit. She’ll give us a prompt a day, until she doesn’t. You have only missed three, so head over.
Let’s see, something nice and short, something in which to lose yourself, and something to inspire. My work here is done. See you tomorrow for the week’s roundup of prompts; Tuesday for my prompt; and Thursday for more links and things.
Happy writing, all.
