Some helpful bits and pieces

by Kiirsi Hellewell

Due to some major upheaval in my family’s life I missed my regularly scheduled post yesterday. Consequently, I’m posting a day late. And it’s going to be short and sweet today…just a few interesting and helpful articles and things on writing I’ve come across on the web in the last few weeks.

First up, we have author Barry Lyga’s funny and informative post on how to cope with writer’s block.

Next, from the Author2Author site, how to deal with rejection letters.

From Cheryl Klein, editor, comes some really good tips on getting to the emotional heart of your story.  (Cheryl’s site is full of excellent articles and tips…she’s currently in the process of moving all her articles on writing to a brand- new site, so check back soon.)

Lastly, from WritersDigest.com comes a really lovely tool…Jane collects the best tweets from Twitter every week on writing (by category) and puts them all in one place.  As Jane says, “I watch Twitter, so you don’t have to.”  You don’t have to be signed up for Twitter to access these articles. 


Kiirsi Hellewell lives in Salt Lake City.  She’s currently knitting, baking in the heat and dreaming of shady pine forests.  You can find her on Twitter or Facebook or on her blog.
