I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.

I know there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same way I do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find every useful advice article that’s out there. So I thought I’d bring you a few. Here are the tips and advice articles that jumped out at me the most over the past week.

  1. Stranger-Than-Fiction Writing Habits of 18 Famous Writers, from Writer’s Digest: Do you have any weird writing habits? Don’t worry, you’re in good company. Excerpt: “Sometimes the muse works in mysterious ways. These well-known writers prove that when it comes to writing, thinking outside the box—and in the case of Vladimir Nabokov’s “shoebox method,” quite literally so—can provide the richest inspiration.”
  2. Reality Check: Author Tours, from Books & Such Literary Management: I know I’ve certainly thought about what it would be like to go on a book tour. It’s nice to have this reminder of what it may really be like. Excerpt: “Rooms crowded with readers all hoping to get their books signed and listen to their favorite author.  Food, laughs, fascinating people to meet along the way. What could be better?”
