Sunday Link Love

I may or may not have gotten most of these links through stalking Beth Revis’s blog, whose book Across the Universe I really really want to read. Like, really.

  • I vaguely knew about this “Dress My Little Pony up like favorite characters” trend, but this group of My Little Ponies as characters from Avatar: The Last Airbender is far and above my favorite. Thanks, Rebecca Enzor!

A must-see video for writers. Beth Revis on failure:

  • I love this response to Sady Doyle’s assessment of A Song of Ice and Fire as a sexist work. I actually think ASOIAF is explicitly feminist, and at some point I might make a post about why I feel this way. In the meantime, Alyssa Rosenberg makes a pretty damn good argument, probably better than I could ever do.

Will always rave about this video. Always.

  • More from Beth Revis! Who blogs about first chapters and hooks. Now, in the writer blogging world, there is probably no more typical a post than the obligatory post about first chapters and hooks. What I like about this post is that she breaks down what a hook is. I have always, always thought that writers would be better off talking about hooks as well-done, interesting questions – and since that’s basically what Beth Revis breaks it down to, I’m a big fan of this post.

People have been kind enough to make suggestions for this blog! I want to set up Google Connect in the sidebar, but I’m struggling. Basically, I got an html from Google, but when I put it in the WordPress text/html widget, it doesn’t do anything. WordPress folks, any idea how to circumvent this? It seems that it would make it a lot easier for the Blogspot folks to follow my blog.

Also, I want to get Facebook and Twitter buttons for my post, so I will jump on that tomorrow. *cue The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow in my head*

In other news, I won things this week! Will post about that between the Monday and Thursday content posts.

Thanks for reading, and hope you enjoyed the links! Sorry the list was a little short this week.

To apologize, here’s a cute kitty. Promise he/she bites.

  1. Yeah, I’m thinking I need to add a google connect to my sidebar too since right now all I have is an RSS feed & twitter but eh. I haven’t looked into how to do that yet either!

  3. Wow. I loved the Beth Revis vlog and the My Little Avatar (you KNOW I had a whole boxful of My Little Ponies as a girl! Lol… Ah, memories). I also really liked the first link – those were beautiful drawings and you’re right – every aspiring artist type needs to see that! Also? I’m thinking I need to design me one of those anthropomorphic versions of my artistic soul!

  5. Unfortunately WordPress doesn’t allow javascript so you can’t use Google Friend Connect unless you get a .org account and host it on your own site. But they have made it really easy to get a Facebook button and Twitter button (it’s in the Widgets section of your dashboard).

    And thank you so much for linking to my post! I’m glad you liked the Avatar Ponies ^_^ (I’m putting up Rainbow Bright a little later today – been sick all weekend so I didn’t have a chance to get it up yesterday.
