, whom I've had on my must-read blogroll for some time, has been kind enough to mention this blog, so welcome John August readers. He also recommends The Artful Writer
, and having checked him out, so do I.
The Artful Writer is writing for working writers, primarily, which definitely pumps the signal to noise ratio. Stuff you can use. Thoughts on the future of the medium. Advice about agenting your agent. How to take stupid notes without getting fired or committing hara-kiri. WGA regs and how they apply. Nice. I think I'm going to be reading him in the future.
He also recommends, as I do, Ask Dr. Hollywood
, whose formatting makes his site a tad hard to read on screen, but is definitely worth printing out if you're getting into things.
My other favorite is Neil Gaiman's blog
, not just because I'm a huge fan of the Dream King and all he hath wrought, but because he's always posting strange and amusing links.
