Bookish links I enjoyed this past week #36

I am a serial reader and love non-fiction articles. For me to find it again and for you to enjoy, I’ll share it here weekly.

 

1) I always admire writers when I read about them finishing a first draft in two weeks or three. Other than not having the time to write non-stop from start to finish, I cannot fathom how that works. But in this article Maggie Bolitho suggest we rather slow down, enjoy the process and make it the journey it is. In praise of slower writing

2) Do children’s books have to have a happy ending? I wonder…I think it should. What says you? Should children’s books have happy endings

 

3) Tattoos stay fascinating to me. I don’t have one but these are some cute tattoos inspired by children’s books. Tattoos inspired by books

 

4) Publishing is a scary venture and in this article the writer shares things nobody tells debut novelists. 10 things nobody tells debut novelists

 

5) I’ve read some horrible scenarios where reviewers criticise stories for not moving forward. Becca shares some ideas on using characters to help a story along. How to keep your story moving forward with believable characters

And that is it from me for this week. Do you have little tips for writing dialogue? I would love to hear from you here in the comments or on my social media platforms.
