tackling Australian slang...

Friday, June 26, 2009

Adele, who runs the blog Persnickety Snark, has been kind enough to have an Elizabeth Scott week (which, hello, WOW!)--you can read about Love You Hate You Miss You, find out if I dog-ear my books and what my high school English teacher were like and then--and this is my favorite--watch me attempt to decipher Australian slang

I've also got some links to share:

John Scalzi on why most new novelists are "kinda old" -- As usual, whenever John (hey, look at me pretending we're on a first name basis!) talks about writing, you know I'll be reading.

John Green talks about the economics of publishing, springing off the insightful and extremely honest Susan Beth Pfeffer blog post I linked to the other day

Lauren Barnholdt talks about blogging bad professional news--as well as reading about other's good news--I especially like this: It’s important to be happy with where you are. Sounds simple, but it can be so hard, and many thanks to Lauren for reminding me that it is important to savor what you have.

Beth Bernobich has another poetic and inspiring post about writing--it's so lovely I want to quote all of it, but will settle for this: "And the small strong warrior inside you says, You can."

Just a reminder that *tomorrow* I'll be at the Barnes & Noble in Tysons Corner at 1 PM, signing books with Claudia Gray--yes, THAT Claudia Gray, and I hope to see some of you there!

And, of course, don't forget about the Summer of Books contest--there's about a week left to enter and hey, who wouldn't want twenty of the hottest new and upcoming books?

Seeing you tackling Australian slang was hilarious, although I'm not sure why I'm laughing. I couldn't do any better!
