Some links on pieces about writing and related matters I had collected but not passed on:
Fonda Lee, who is making waves with her new novel, Jade City (more on my impressions of that book later,) did a good, practical Twitter thread essay on awards versus sales when it comes to marketing buzz.
Tim Pratt did an interesting piece on the process of writing his alien creatures in his SF novel, The Wrong Stars.
John Scalzi did a piece about attempts to tabulate authors’ sales from limited sources and the markets for fiction in general.
Anaea Lay recounts the story of her glamorous author travels to WorldCon in 2017, useful for those who may be doing convention traveling.
Chuck Wendig didn’t particularly like a piece of writing advice someone gave on Twitter and so did a comic riff on it followed by some useful writing advice as a Twitter thread essay.
Ineke Chen-Meyer points out an interesting difference between our fictional characters and the real world.
