Word Around the Writer Blogs

Pen Pals (Little Boy Writing Letter)* by Norman Rockwell

Stuff Writers are Blogging About

Marina Fontaine has a good description of all the stories in Freedom's Light.

Larry Correia has good advice on how to Tweak your Writing for Audiobooks.

Nick Cole thinks there's Trouble at Barnes and Noble.

On Daniella Bova's blog, Amie Gibbons has tips on Beating Writer Depression.

Also, check out the finalists for the Libertarian Futurist Society's 2017 Prometheus Hall of Fame Award:

  • Rudyard Kipling’s “As Easy as A.B.C.”
  • Vernor Vinge ‘s “Conquest by Default”
  • Robert A. Heinlein’s “Coventry”
  • Kurt Vonnegut’s “Harrison Bergeron”
  • Poul Anderson’s “Starfog” 
  • Jack Williamson’s “With Folded Hands"

(I hope "Harrison Bergeron" wins - very relevant today.)
