Tuesday's Links

Surfing. Finding good stuff to read.

J.A. Konrath shares advice for writers on dealing with critics and getting validation.

Michael Bourret from Dystel & Goderich discusses author's advances and money... in other words, "Where my check?"

Practicing Writing is chock full of low and no-cost writing contests, and other opportunities for submiting your work. This is a recent favorite of mine.

Just discovered Black Girl on Campus blog and loving it.

Clay Cane breaks down the archetypes of black, gay dating life. Fun stuff.

Classic Y&R moment from 2002/3... Drucilla reads Damon for hooking up with a white girl... "She's a sista!"

Finally, for writers... when you write to you use pen and paper or computer screen? Tayari Jones tells us her reasoning for pen and paper.
