As you may have noticed, posts here at the Jet Fuel Review’s blog have been a bit slack. In case you missed my post this Wednesday, I’ll just repeat what I said there. All of our bloggers have a lot going on as the release of the fall issue of the Jet Fuel Review approaches. I am participating in National Novel Writing Month, so I’m suspending my Prompt Wednesday posts at least for the month. Mark and Linda are busy working on acceptance notes and rejection letters to this season’s contributors, so their posts may come later than usual. As I said in my earlier post, I trust that you will be understanding as this can be a busy time for all of us.
Let’s take a look at what was featured this week on the blog. On Monday, the writing advice post outlined the snowflake method, which can be used to plan novels or any kind of writing. This week’s horror blog from Michael Malan talked about The Dunwich Horror by H.P. Lovecraft. Tuesday’s community discussion focused on the self-publishing craze that has reached a high point in recent years. Mark’s first awesome word of the week was garrulous.
The Writing Excuses podcast, which Linda covered in her post on Wednesday, talked about something that you might be interested in — education after university for writers. Lucas’ film corner post discussed the fact that period piece movies do not necessarily portray an accurate picture of history. And Mark’s second awesome word of the week was gossamer.
As always — don’t forget about the Facebook page for the Jet Fuel Review!
