Welcome to Slàinte Sundays where I give a toast to those posts I enjoyed during the week.
Before we get to the link love, I wanted to let you all know I’m adjusting my blog schedule from three days a week to two days. With the family and day job schedules picking up, and NaNoWriMo looming, (not to mention the holidays are comin’ up hot) I have less and less time for my novel and blogging. I’ve made the decision to cut back on blogging, because, let’s face it, my novel is much more important! J
Anyhoo…For the time being, I will incorporate my Slàinte Sundays with my Rudan Thursdays. I truly enjoy sharing my cyber finds with all of you and am not willing to cut them. So while I won’t be able to share every week, there will still be plenty of link love goin’ around 😉
Ok, let’s get to it…
Jenny Hansen shares Writing Lessons From The Late Great Stephen J. Cannell.
Kristen Lamb continues her series on Structure with Part 3 – Introducing the Opposition.
Jody Hedlund guest posts over at Jenny Hansen’s blog, talking about plot ideas and structure, very helpful with NaNoWriMo coming up.
Amber West has some great NaNoWriMo tips for all of those pantsers out there. Check this out.
Bob Mayer offers a tribute to the reader in his post, Readers Rule: The Ultimate Gatekeepers Publishing and The Rise of the Author.
Kait Nolan shares her Open Letter to Barnes & Noble about PubIt!
Jenny Hansen offers great tips on critique partners or groups via Dan Rockwell over at Leadership Freak. And I swear I’m not stalking Jenny, she just has so many awesome posts, how can I not share them?? 😉
Sonia Medeiros says ‘let there be blogs’ in her post on blogging and blog fatigue. Did she write this just for me?
Kristen Lamb reminds us to keep our heads in the game, and breathes new life into that blog fatigue by sharing boring statistical information on blogging and its benefits.
Lyn Midnight is a girl after my own heart in her guest post on spiraling out of control, over at David N. Walker’s blog. No, Lyn, you are most definitely not alone.
On networking and social media…
Jen Talty, via Bob Mayer’s blog, talks about the importance of branding.
Carrie Spencer – finally! – shares much-needed information on ping backs, via her pal Woodie, cause he knows WordPress. I’ve been waiting for so long! ;p
Just for fun!
Shéa MacLeod shares creepy crawly stories in her post, The Queen of Fire and Darkness Meets the Scorpion King.
Jenny Hansen talks about her undies fetish, interest, um, ok, she’s talkin’ about g-strings people. You gotta go check it out.
Piper Bayard and Kristen Lamb need your help with campaign slogans. They’ve got awesome options to choose from, go cast your vote! Piper/Lamb 2012!
Natalie Hartford brings us the compliment to the tow-hitch stripper pole: The Tow Hitch TV!
Gene Lempp teaches us about the Ancient Silk Route in his latest post from Designing from Bones.
Marcia Richards tells a true story of ‘sweet revenge,’ a family’s quest for justice, and making a difference the American way. I got chills reading this. Amazing post!
Jess Witkins offers an interesting post on Sleep Paralysis. Pretty scary, actually. My husband has this happen sometimes.
To Jenny, Kristen, Jody, Amber, Bob, Kait, Sonia, Lyn, Jen, Carrie, Shéa, Piper, Natalie, Gene, Marcia, and Jess…

Hi Kate. Thanks for the shout out. I so understand about balancing blog, family and novel. I only publish five per week because I’m fortunate enough to have an amazing writing partner. I’ve finally gotten to where I can usually post first thing in the morning, work on my novel, give to my family in the afternoons, and prepare the blog for the next day in the evening. When I stick to that, I do ok. All the best to you for finding the right balance.
Thanks Piper! Right now I’m working on getting up early to write. I’m really trying to put the wip first. I know I’ll find my balance eventually. Thanks for stopping by!
Thanks for the link love, Kate. Fantastic group of bloggers here today!
Kate, you can stalk me any time you’d like. I’m completely jazzed that my “undies” made a mashup. (That sounds soooo wrong, but you know what I mean!) The “Undie Chronicles” continue tomorrow, FYI…
Thanks for the linky love, AND for jazzing up my Sunday. Slainte, back ‘atcha!
Jenny, you say the sweetest things :p Can’t wait to read tomorrow’s post! lol
Terrific list and lovely blog, Kate! Glad I found it. Looking forward to following your work. 🙂
Thank you, August!
Kate, thanks for the shout out. I’m in great company in this list! Nice job! I wish you super productivity in the coming months!
Another excellent list of links you love. I think I actually read all of them this week, whoohooo!
Best of luck with your WIP – it is the most important thing. We’re still here for when you get a blog up and are supporting you all the way!
Hi Tameri! I’ll still blog on Tuesdays and Thursdays…just need the whole weekend for the wip. Thanks so much for your support ~ it really means a lot!
Fantastic mashup. Thanks for including me! Cutting back a bit on my blogging schedule really helped me a lot.
Your blog fatigue posts really helped me to make the decision ~ Thank YOU! 🙂
This may be the first (and only) time someone has included me under “Craft”. I feel so very special. 🙂
Seriously, thanks for the link love.
Although your blog presence will be miss, you are doing the right thing cutting back for your writing. Best wishes for the WIP!
You ARE special, Amber ;p I will still post on Tuesdays and Thursdays…just keeping the weekends open for some serious work on the wip. Thanks for your support, I appreciate it!
