Welcome to another editor’s notebook round-up post! I hope your week has been a great one and I hope you’ve enjoyed our posts this week. Firstly, though, I’d like to remind you that the Spring 2013 reading period for the Jet Fuel Review is currently open. The reading period will be open until March 15th. You are all encouraged to send in your poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and art to be considered for submission to the Review. You can send your submissions to this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to receiving your work! Now, let’s see what the blog had to offer this week.
As always, the week started off with some writing advice. This week it came from Elmore Leonard and his 10 rules of writing. Description in stories can be a tough thing to tackle, but hopefully this advice from Leonard will give you some guidance. Lucas’ Bibliophilia post this week was all about An Essay, Medical, Philosophical, and Chemical on Drunkenness, and Its Effects on the Human Body — basically, it was about the connection between spontaneous human combustion and the temperance movement. It’s fascinating read, so go check it out!
This week’s discussion centered on the idea of the writing routine. Some of us have them and some of us don’t, but whatever your position on regimented writing, we’d love to hear your opinion! Come on over to the discussion post and leave a comment! Finally, Mark’s Awesome Word for this week was mores.
Thanks for sticking around and reading our posts this week! And we hope you stick around for another week. Please do check out the Jet Fuel Review‘s submission guidelines and consider submitting your work.
