Noteworthy Content of the Week

Written by Darice de Cuba on April 27, 2011

This week list contains a few articles about writing, because that’s what we all who have a weblog do, write. There is and there will always be things to learn about writing. To some it comes instinctively while others have to put a bit more effort into it.

Starting The Article Writing Process

It can be extremely frustrating and aggravating when the words that you are looking for just don’t seem to want to come. But you must learn to relax and let them come.

I have a procrastination routine involving TV shows rerun and reading other weblogs before I get into what I call the ‘zone’. Even when I know what I want to write about it takes time.

Writers Are The New Publishers

These small publishing outfits are likely to be the solution to the process problem, and I look forward to seeing how they solve the intricacies of editing, design, and ebook production in a low-margin, high-output context.

I’m all for small publishers, their books are craftsmanship, carefully designed and edited. A different experience than mass produced books.

Superheroes Can Be Jerks

When they’re not busy saving their city, the Earth, or the entire cosmos they’ve proven time and time again to be mean spirited, petty, and immature.

I never thought about it this way, but Tony Stark was a real ass in Iron Man 2. Nice entry to get you thinking about something completely out of the box.

Take stock and think ahead when you get extra time to write

Most writing is done in your brainbox, naturally. But there are plenty of external pressures that influence your work and it’s vital that they’re kept in check too.

The above quote is true, ideas come up when you are everywhere but behind your computer. I still make the mistake of not writing a small idea down thinking I will remember it. Not.

I wonder if it would be easier to write an entry, article or piece if I could just forget about grammar and spelling. Just write the whole thing without caring and then edit it or let an editor edit it.
