Lots of family obligations this week, so no time for deep thoughts or reflections. Instead, I suggest you pop over to Adventures in Publishing: http://childrenspublishing.blogspot.com/2010/06/best-articles-this-week.html
These guys do a great job of consolidating the week's blog posts that are informative and entertaining...sort of what I was planning on doing until I discovered their site. It's wonderfully done by two authors who seem to have their stuff down pat. They also do contests and critiques now and then.
By next week, I hope to look at similar sites and list the posts that I think pertain to you, the writer. There are lots of cool articles out there, but not all of them are super-relevant to aspiring authors yet--things like the developments in electronic publishing...at this point, lots of us just need to know how best to finish and polish our script, and get it noticed. Those are the things I hope to focus on here.
Have a great weekend!
