Here are this week’s new articles from The Adventurous Writer; topics include starting blog partnerships, getting over relationship breakup guilt, caregiving elderly parents – and more! Last week’s new articles included How to Emotionally Detach From Someone You Care About.
First, a word about how to read for writers:
“Read! Read! Read! And then read some more. When you find something that thrills you, take it apart paragraph by paragraph, line by line, word by word, to see what made it so wonderful. Then use those tricks the next time you write.” ~ W.P. Kinsella
I vow to do this the next time I read something I love — and I challenge you to do the same! Okay, here’s a roundup of my new articles on my Quips and Tips blogs, See Jane Soar, and more…
