Casual Friday: Internet Gems

Happy Friday, Everyone!

So today is the day where our posts are all casual-like,
And I thought it might be nice to have some Misfits share their favorite blog posts - whether it was one of their own, or something that inspired them, or something they felt deserved more recognition (in this same vein, DL Hammons is hosting the Deja Vu blogfest today, and you can check out the entries here).

In the spirit of the holidays, and because she apparently knows my weakness, Misfit Cait passed along this post in which she shares the recipe for triple death by chocolate brownies. I KNOW, RIGHT?

I've gone back this post by a few times. In it, Kimberley Derting shares rejections she received on the Body Finder before it got picked up by Harper Collins. It's always encouraging to know that an author whose work you enjoy faced the same doors slamming in her face as you have. A little reminder that no one is exempt.  

Having trouble outlining? Misfit Jenny passed along THIS POST from the Better Novel Project showing how deconstructing bestsellers can help you organize your own plotting. She also shared a post from her own blog with Ten Self-Editing Tips for Writers.

Need more insight on the writing and publishing process? Misfit Maggie recommends the Not For Robots blog by Laini Taylor.

Last but not least, when you're getting whiplash from the constant highs and lows of your publishing journey, and you've worked your butt off and have no idea if it's all worth it and feel like no one knows what you're going through, you NEED to check out this post from Misfit Dahlia titled It's Not Just You.

What are some of your favorite internet gems? Feel free to share!
