Here’s what happened at The Writerly Life this past week:
The week kicked off with with the Sunday Wordle: June 17. (Playing around with words is such fun: no agenda, no 300 pages to revise, no agent search . . . . Ahhh.) This wordplay resulted in a poem, of all things. The Wordles, in case you don’t know about them, come from The Sunday Whirl. If you’re a writer looking for a fun way to loosen up the brain, go to The Whirl and give the Wordles a try. They work for fiction, memoir, poetry (and blog posts!) . . . whatever strikes your fancy.
The week ended with a bang: Read It and Weep (Not) deals with the role and responsibilities of the reader–which are considerable–in a writing partnership or group. This post grew into a two-parter. . .
Read It and Weep (Not), Part 2: The Writer’s Role offers the other side of the critique scene: the writer’s part, whose work is “at stake” in the feedback scenario.
So if you haven’t checked out this week’s posts, I hope you will.
There’s a great conversation going on in response to Read It and Weep (Not) and Read It and Weep (Not), Part 2 regarding how writers share work. I hope you’ll enter in by leaving a comment. I’m learning so much from my readers!
Have a great weekend, y’all!
