Now that the October Memoir Challenge is done, I thought it might be a good time to give you a tour of various kinds of posts at The Writerly Life. If you started following the blog during the challenge, you may be surprised to find out there’s more here than memoir–posts about writing, reading, photography, even the cat . . .
Thanks to Kenya G. Johnson for passing along this archive hop idea (via TALU (Tuesday Archive Linkup).
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.
