Monday comes along so quick, at times it takes me by surprise. I have been so busy, keeping myself occupied with all my blogs, and writing, that I seem to let this blog suffer periodically. That certainly in not my intention, and I’m going to have to discipline myself a little more thoroughly to keep current posts going. I am considering doing some book reviews, and writing prompts through the week. I want to keep this blog more focused on my writing, and not so much on me personally. That is what the Side Blog is for, my personal thoughts and silliness.
On to Writers of the Web for this week. Over the weekend I went through that huge mess in my browsers bookmark sidebar. Clearing out dead links, and trying to organize them just a little. A good thing to, because I re-discovered this first blog, misplaced it in the clutter of my bookmarks. Literary Jewels; a creative insight into the world of Literature, authored by Amritbir Kaur , is a blog of thought and impression. You’ll find great quotes from a number of sources, famous or not, and many a thought provoking article.
I found an interesting site this weekend while enjoying my ritual stroll through the blogosphere. While reading Untangling The Past, a poem on Jane’s Writing, I discovered a writing prompt’s blog. Cafe Writing does a monthly project where a series of prompts are offered to bloggers. You get to chose your own form of inspiration, then go forth to write… a poem, short, or simple article using the prompt you selected. Then simply return to Cafe Writing and leave a comment with the URL of your post. Of course you link back to Cafe Writing to tie into the project. I will probably give this one a shot, and see what develops.
Some time ago, I found two blogs that register or list Blog fiction. Now we all know I love fiction, so these were a natural for me. I have found a few good blog novels through these sites, but I’m not going to list them until I read enough to get a good feel for them. First off is Blog Fiction, where you can find a large selection of fiction writing throughout the web. There are reviews, and thoughts about writing fiction on the internet to ponder and enjoy also. After that swing by Web Fiction Guide for even more listings of blog fiction and reviews to wet your appetite for the reading.
