Some links to read with your Saturday tea, coffee, martini, or Dr. Pepper

I don’t usually post on Saturdays or Sundays. The exception usually is 6 Degrees of Separation the first Saturday of the first full week of the month. But it is winter. I’m enjoying many things again–finally. Reading is among them. I am also in a good writing workshop right now with author Louise Miller. I’m cooking lots of new things. So here is a look at the randomness that is satisfying my soul right now.

On Writing

Author Hazel Gaynor, whose newest book, When We Were Young and Brave (aka Bird in the Bamboo Cage, I coincidentally reviewed this week, on Writing Through the Pain. From Writer Unboxed.

Ever wonder what literary agents REALLY think? Here is literary agent Janet Reid on what she HATES from querying writers. It is both useful and funny. Nine Things That Drive me Crazy.

“A German author of more than 70 books and 400 academic articles got so much done because of his pioneering system called Zettelkasten.” From Fast Company.

On Reading

A new year, a new President, new beginnings! Modern Mrs. Darcy’s list of books on new beginnings.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall has started a Reading Room on Instagram. See her first book picks here.

A Few Books 

From Chaos to Creativity: Building a Productivity System for Artists and Writers by Jessie L. Kwak. I have to use so many things recommended for Adult ADHD to stay on top of my paid job, that this might just help.. I hope to order it on the 15th. I will not be buying the workbook though unless I decide later that I need it.

I have owned this since it came out in 2010–I bought it for my son and he used it some. Coincidentally, after my witting workshop did some exercises to help “unstick” our brains, I found this again while de-cluttering what used to be my (now grown) son’s closet. It is geared to preteens/teens, but anyone can make use of it. Rip the Page: Adventures in Creative Writing. 

How about you? Did you find anything good this week? Post a link to your own post–or just post the great link in a comment.
