Linkity-Link: It Must Be Friday

Hurray for Friday! I hope you’ve all had a productive week and that life is treating you well. As per tradition, I’m dropping in with an assortment of links for you all to enjoy. Some are a bit sillier than usual. I think spring must be in the air and it is affecting my mood accordingly. 😉

If you haven’t already dropped by yesterday’s post, please do, and leave a comment with what books you’re currently reading. People have already shared some great titles; I’ll admit a few are getting tacked onto my mental TBR list. Check out the other comments if you’re looking for some recommendations.

Without further ado, I’ll move on to the links. Have a lovely weekend, and happy writing!

Free-book Friday – My lovely client Helen Keeble is running a giveaway for ARCs of her fabulously funny debut YA novel, FANG GIRL. She’s actually going to be doing this each month until the release date in September, but there’s still time to get in on the drawing for March. For great photos of the book, check out this earlier post.

Failure: The Key Ingredient to a Successful Writing Career – A thoughtful look at what it takes to pick yourself up and keep moving forward.

10 Women to Watch in 2012 – A great list of up-and-coming female authors, including one of The Knight Agency’s brilliant clients, N.K. Jemisin, who is represented by my co-worker Lucienne Diver.

Neil Gaiman on Writer’s Block – Pretty much speaks for itself.

Pie Notes – Yes, this is a recipe. For Girl Scout Thin Mint Ice Cream Pie. Because sharing is love, and because the inspiration for the recipe came from a very amusing afternoon in the hotel lobby during the San Francisco Writers Conference a few weeks back. See? You never know what’ll happen at a writers conference.

    1. LOL! I know I’m going to be stalking girl scouts this weekend to lay in my cookie supply just for this purpose.

  1. Thanks for the link to women writers to watch; it is always a great thing to have more of those, and I’ve learned about a few new authors to interest me! (This might not be a good thing, judging by the response I just posted to your TBR post.)

    As always, Gaiman has a fairly succinct way of speaking the truth. The best way to get around writer’s block is just to write, even if you know all those words will be cut in your second draft. If nothing else, it helps get the pent-up frustration out and may allow for better writing tomorrow.
