Yeah, I know; I haven't posted much lately. But I'm making an effort to get the blog back on track. Today's not my normal day for posting either, but who cares? Once a week any day of the week is a good thing at this point.

So, what I have for you today is a short list of five interesting Internet reading that you might like, especially if you're a writer.

Let me know what you think of these articles. And if you have other articles you've read this week that have helped you, share them in the comments below.

Enjoy!


1.  How to Be Prolific (from Fast Company's fastcocreate.com blog)

Otherwise known as advice from Joss Whedon, the undisputed King of Productivity. All hail the creator of Nathan Fillion's career.

3.  Hell with What Sells (from Chuck Wendig)

5.  150 Summer Steals (from Open Road Integrated Media)

Otherwise known as a really cool ebook sale from well-known authors like Alan Foster Dean, Timothy Zahn, and Robert Silverberg. Get on it, because the sale is only on for a couple of weeks.
