More Critical Reading

Simple, lazy post today.

If you’re interested in reading some more thoughts on Critical Reading give Harvey’s post a read:

I commented on his post regarding the re-reading enjoyable pieces…if you re-visit the Reading for Pleasure post, you’ll see that conceptually we do the same thing (i.e. in our own way).

A lot of interesting insight into how Harvey copy-edits…and what he expects of first readers.

Thanks all readers for the interesting comments on yesterday’s post.

I have nothing…

but recommendations.

Harvey posted an old Dean Wesley Smith blog post with a great rewriting metaphor.

I am currently reading my local writing friend’s novella “Sodom and Gomorrah on a Saturday Night”.  Check Christa out…she writes literary, genre-bending fiction that will make you think.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Phillip wrote 52 short stories in 52 weeks. And wrote about it and published the stories. 52 for 52. That’s batting 1.000!

I’ll save the customary pimpin’ of my own work.  Go check these scribblers out!
