Saturday Grab Bag: Mashup and Poll

16 Oct

Mashup:

Here are some great links on writing, the industry, and all things book related. Some are serious, and some are just downright hilarious. We highly recommend you read them!

Writer’s Rooms: A neat post about writers and the rooms they write in.

NaNoWriMo Song: With NaNoWriMo next month, this song should get you in the mood to take on the challenge!

Sex in YA: Literary Agent Mary Kole takes on a scandalous topic.

Female Character Stereotypes: Most of our characters got Strong Heroine. Most… >.>

If Hogwarts Had Internet: HP was set in the 80’s/90’s, which is why none of these hijinks ever actually happened.

J.K. Rowling’s Spreadsheet: In a continuing HP theme, here’s a scan of J.K.’s plot notes.

Poll:

What interesting links have you come across lately?

    http://queryshark.blogspot.com is the best query resource I’ve come across. Years of archives to go through and use to perfect your own query! 🙂 I don’t think I’ve seen you link to her before, so I figured I’d drop a line.
