Every week, we post three interesting articles about Women, Fiction, Tools used, or other Women and Fiction related topics on our social media accounts. (Facebook, Twitter, Google+) Here's a more detailed review of our links:
Do you use an Oxford Comma? It's not something I thought of before becoming an author. My introduction to this controversy came from a British Editor. He was a stickler for all things stickler-ish. We stuck to the Chicago Manual and the Oxford Comma. In this article, the Write Life declares the debate over siting the use of the Oxford Comma cost a dairy $10 million dollars in a lawsuit with its drivers. Is the question of the Oxford Comma resolved for you? (This link was shared in a previous week. We'll include these posts until we're caught up.)
Yoga Nindra: A lot of authors use it to calm their inner dragon critic and get working on their projects. I have a dear friend who uses it to connect with her company inspiration. This article reviews what Yoga Nindra is, how it works, and ways to use it. Remember, you don't have to take a class. Audio tracks of Yoga Ninda abound on the Internet. Find one you like, settle in, relax, and connect. This should get your brain popping again.
Mystery Tribune put together their list of the top 20 mysteries written by women (link). Oddly, Agatha Christie -- the best selling author of all time -- is not on this list. We can only assume that everyone has read Agatha Christie. Do you have other favorites? If so, leave them in the comments!
Writing fiction is a revolutionary act. We are spiritual activists by creating entire worlds which shine a light on various aspects of the world. This article from Numinous founder Ruby Warrington is a positive, thoughtful article for every creator in 2017 -- which ever side of the political, emotional, or social economic spectrum. There is no more important time to create than right now. There's no question that it's harder to write now than it was even a few years ago. The rage brigade is on fire. This only means that your work is more necessary now than ever before.
