What a fantastic week here at the blog! We had some truly awesome posts from our bloggers this week, and I can’t wait to run through them all here in this post. But before I do that, I’d like to remind you all that the Jet Fuel Review’s fall reading period is still open! We will be reading submissions through October 15th, so send in your fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art today! Please visit the Jet Fuel Review website for all the details. Now let’s see what our bloggers had to offer this week.
First up is a Writing Advice post from me that focused on the obstacles we may put in our own way while writing. Mike’s Horror Blog this week covered a short story by Michael Shea entitled ‘The Autopsy.’ Tuesday’s Discussion post pondered why bookstores are declining in America, but seem to be surging in France. If you have any insight or opinions, check out the post and leave your thoughts in the comments! This week’s Poem from Slate was Declaration to a Shade by Brian Culhane. Christine’s Movie Macabre covered Tim Burton’s ‘Vincent.’
Lucas’ Bibliophilia post this week talked about comic books and graphic novels. The following day, Lucas’ Film Corner discussed gay films, specifically ‘Weekend’ and ‘Nowhere.’ Linda’s Ekphrastic post drew inspiration from Craig Tracey, a body painter she found on StumbleUpon. The featured read in Meg’s Book Nook this week was Dark World, by Zak Bagans. Mark’s Awesome Word of the Week was a great sounding one: scintilla. And to close out our fantastically prolific week, Liz’s News of the Books talked about childless women writers.
I don’t say it very often here, but I want to send a huge thank you to everyone who contributes to the Jet Fuel Review blog. Looking at this past week’s posts make me very proud of the blog and proud of all of you. Don’t forget to submit to the Jet Fuel Review!
