Coming Soon (run for the hills!)

Yep, I’ve got all of next week’s posts ready to go. I’m tempting fate again. Mua-ha-ha.

Here’s what you have to look forward to and/or run screaming from as you see fit, plus a little something extra at the bottom (because why would I just post a table of contents for the week? That would be crazy! Unless you do this, in which case it’s awesome.)

MONDAY: My new toy– I got an e-reader! And BOOKS!

TUESDAY: Trying to untangle the benefits of self-publishing vs. pursuing a traditional publishing contract. It’s enough to make you start shedding like a nervous cat.

WEDNESDAY: WIPpet Wednesday, and one which I hope will make fewer people call me a big old meanie than last week’s did. EDIT: I previewed the wrong one for you, shame on me! This week is a bit from chapter one.

THURSDAY: The weird little question of what writers’ characters look like in readers’ brains, with a little help from one of Michelle Proulx‘s creations.

FRIDAY: Why I might not be around so much in April…

OK, I promised you something, didn’t I? Here’s an interesting blog I just found this morning, via Shannon Thompson:

Rejection Love Letters: or How to Lose Agents and Alienate Publishers (isn’t that the best title?) is brought to us by an author with a book, a dream, and an amazing willingness to not only share the rejection letters he receives, but to turn things around and look at them in terms of rejections in the dating world. It’s funny, it’s honest, and it’s far braver than I am.

Also, he shares stuff like this:

Good times, go check it out. 🙂

And have a great weekend!

EDIT: OK, one more thing that made me LOL (literally) today. NOT THE PUFFINS!!!
