Happy Sunday friends! What have you been up to this weekend? Has anyone been watching the Olympics? This week I started a job gallery sitting, which has been really great because I’m surrounded by art and I have lots of time to read, write … and to find these links for your perusal:
Happy Sunday friends. I hope everyone is having the coziest weekend. If you want some internet time today here are some of my favorite new links. Enjoy!
Happy Sunday and December first! I don’t know about you, but after NaNoWriMo and Thanksgiving guests, I’m ready for a lazy day. If you are too and you want to spend some of the time on the Internet, here are some of my new favorite bookish links:
- Myths about girls in YA fiction.
- Many people are upset about the way Catching Fire has been marketed (i.e. all the Capitol-like advertisements, nail polishes, crazy false eyelashes, etc.). The author Suzanne Collins gives her thoughts on the film’s marketing strategy.
- Quiz to find out which literary character you are. Continue reading
Happy Sunday! I’m a little groggy today, because instead of going to bed early like I planned so that I would feel fresh in the morning to put together the blog post, do my NaNoWriMo daily writing, and study for the GRE (which I’m taking in less than a week!) I stayed up past three in the morning reading Along for the Ride, by Sarah Dessen. In honor of this late night reading, I thought I’d share a post suggests other authors for fans of Dessen’s books. Here are some other great links from around the web:
- Fourteen Published Novels that began as NaNoWriMo projects.
- Online Auction where you can bid on items or experiences from authors, editors, and literary agents to raise money for the Red Cross’s Typhoon Haiyan Appeal.
- The cast from the Hunger Games list their favorite young adult books Continue reading
It’s day one of my trip in LA and day three of NaNoWriMo, so I’m hoping my Internet time is going to be replaced with writing/snuggling with my sister time. Luckily, I prescheduled this post before I hit the train yesterday. So if you want to find some bookish or writerly things around the web, you’ve come to the right spot:
- NaNoWriMo tips from The Bookshelf.
- Joan Didion’s thoughts on keeping a notebook.
- The New York Times writes another article on the decline of the humanities at American colleges. I’m getting concerned.
I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. It’s beautiful out in Big Sur, so I probably won’t be spending too much time on the Internet today. But in case you feel the desire to wander through the world wide web, here are some links I found pretty darned interesting. Enjoy!
Happy Sunday Friends! If you find yourself in need of a little internet time, you might want to check out some of these links.
Hope everyone is having the most lovely weekend. I’m trying to cut down on my internet time because I really need to be working on edits and I’m preparing for lots of visitors in the upcoming weeks. But here are a few links that I couldn’t resist taking a look at:
- The Five Worst Things That Happen While Reading
- 90 Days, 90 Pancakes - a blog I found written by a fellow Smithie and Albright House resident with pancake recipes ranging from Vegan Coconut Pancakes to Zucchini Feta Pancakes. Yum!
