collected links of writing  
Some good writing links I've come across recently:

- Nebula Awards interviews Charles Coleman Finley. A really good interview about writing, and short stories versus novels, and his new trilogy.

- Cold - Adventures in the World's Frozen Places. I heard an interview with the author on NPR and it sounds like a rather interesting book.

- Dead On Arrival, a Novel Autopsy, or: "The Why Incision". YorkWriters talks about why a novel didn't work at all and it's a very nice review. [Link via Dean Wesley Smith]

- Jason Sanford on a new SF movement he calls Sci-Fi Strange. There are several people in his list whose work I enjoy, even if I wouldn't put myself into the movement.

- Reno 2011 World Science Fiction Convention site-recon report and photos. A couple fans check out the sites for the Worldcon 2011 and come back impressed and I'm thrilled because it's two hours away!</a>

I'm keeping my eye on Reno 2011, because there are some cheap flights from West Michigan to Reno -- and I doubt that I can afford Melbourne, so Reno would be my first WorldCon if I can swing it.

On the other hand, because amazingly enough, Melbourne is NOT located in North America, there is a NASFiC in 2010 in Raleigh NC -- and that's an hour-and-a-half from my folks house, so I am planning hard to get to Raleigh.

I went to LACon back in 2006 when I was just deciding to be a writer, and had a good time being a wanna be and also being a SF nerd.

Lamely didn't go to Denver, and couldn't swing Montreal, so I'm really looking forward to Reno!

Also crazily thinking about Melbourne, as an excuse to go to Australia. Not sure if I can pull that one off.

Go to Reno!
