Sunday Linkage

I’ve got links, I’ve got links, I’ve got links, I’ve got links, I’ve got LINKS! (Sung to the tune of “I’m the Map” from Dora the Explorer.) Lots of writing and literary links after the jump!

We’ll start off with an article written by published author Edie Melson who makes a list of all the things you should never say to a writer. It is both interesting and aggravating to read and hopefully entertaining as well. What do you think about Melson’s list?

I know Halloween is long over, but it’s never too early to start planning for next Halloween, right? 😉 Buzzfeed featured children’s book characters who were “born” to be costumes.

One of the costumes featured above is from a Dr. Seuss book, so why not check out some of his wonderful words here?

How about famous writers and their imagined Instagram accounts?

We could all use some solid writing advice. Featured below are famous authors and their advice for other writers. (Ray Bradbury is one of my favorites.)

What do you think about these famous first lines? What are your favorite first lines? One of mine is, “Marley was dead: to begin with.”

And finally, something that has very little to do with writing in particular, but was something that I loved reading anyway, was this blog post from an Australian family that has lived nomadically in Mongolia. One of their children wrote the post, and the accompanying photos and descriptions are well worth your time. It was beautiful!

What sorts of things have you encountered online this week? Share in the comments! 🙂
