Sockmonkeys share many links with each other via Facebook but, of course, things shared to FB have a tendency to disappear into the aether. So here's a list of links shared with the group between April 15 and April 23, 2013:
- The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest
Wretched Writers Welcome...to submit their loveliest sentences (h/t to John R)
- Mars 2023: Inhabitants Wanted
Posted as a (sci-fi?) writing prompt (h/t to Darlene R)
- 24 Tips for Writers
Nineteen-minute video reviewing many of those grammatical issues we all need to revisit from time to time (h/t to John R)
- 30 things to tell a book snob
In honor of World Book Night, author Matt Haig politely tells haters to shove it (Cassandra)
Shelly and I want to make this a weekly round-up, so each Tuesday one of us will sift through the week's FB postings for all the great links Sockmonkeys share with each other.
Also, a while ago Darlene invited the Sockmonkeys to share writers' events in the region so I thought I'd add those too:
- Chuckanut Writers Conference - http://chuckanutwritersconference.com/ (h/t to Jane H)
- Cascade Writers Workshop - http://cascadewriters.com/ (h/t to Tara S)
- Oregon Christian Writers Cascade Writing Contest & Conference - http://oregonchristianwriters.org/ocw-cascade-writing-contest/ (h/t to Melissa I)
From the general chatter on FB it looks like the Sockmonkeys are, on the whole, enjoying a productive and inspirational week. To any Sockmonkeys who happen to be reading this, I'd love to know what's inspiring you these days.
