Good evening, readers! I hope you’ve all had a calm and relaxing weekend and are ready to return to your classes and/or work. Before you head back to the hypothetical salt mines, let’s take a look at what was posted this week at the Jet Fuel Review blog. As always, we had some great posts here, so let’s see what was featured.
At the beginning of the week, the Writing Advice post named some alternative writing challenges to NaNoWriMo. If writing like a crazy person who is joined at the hip with their laptop throughout November isn’t your thing, why not try one of these? Mike’s Horror Blog this week diverged from the usual book reviews and instead illuminated why Mike enjoys the horror genre so much. Why do you enjoy your favorite genre? This week’s Discussion post wondered why being published is the pinnacle of success for writers, and whether there are other writing goals out there to be pursued. The featured poem from Slate this week was El Dorado, by Peter Campion. Lucas’ Bibliophilia talked about H.G. Wells and how he may have been a great writer, but he sometimes wasn’t a great person. And Mark’s Awesome Word of the week was taciturn.
I hope that you enjoyed this week’s offerings at the blog, and please do come back next week for more literature, film, and wordsmithing from our bloggers.
