Interesting posts for aspiring authors...

Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying the long weekend. It's very cold and windy here on the South Coast of NSW. Perfect writing weather!
I have been busy concentrating on two writing projects and having a lovely weekend catching up with things on my to-do list. It feels great to put a line through each task as it is completed. Shame I keep thinking up a heap more... Anyway here's some links to a few interesting articles and blogs I've read lately.
The one super power that all published writers have by Alison Tait
8 Secrets to kick start your writing by Karen Tyrrell. You may have heard these tips before but it's good to remind yourself of the basics now and again. http://www.karentyrrell.com/

Here's some happy writing tips from Gabrielle Wang http://gabriellewang.com/happy-writing-tips/

Natasha Lester, author of several adult fiction books tells us about a day in the life of a writer and how she uses her time most productively. While you are there have a look around Natasha's blog, she's had some interesting articles lately about what happens when you get a manuscript accepted and wether or not you need an agent. http://www.natashalester.com.au/2015/06/04/a-day-in-the-life/
For more news on what children's and YA authors are up to check out Sandy Fussell's OZKYAI blog which scoops up articles from various authors and illustrators. http://www.scoop.it/t/australian-children-s-authors

And to finish off a quote from Dr Suess... “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”
Happy Writing.
