Wednesday links: Using Goodreads and laziness

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. Use GoodReads to Avoid the Mistakes that Other Authors Make, from April DaVila: Goodreads is beneficial for authors for a lot of reasons, but did you know it could be beneficial for unpublished writers, too? Excerpt: “We were talking about the projects that we’re working on, and the challenges we’re facing, when the conversation turned to GoodReads. My friend told me that she’s been using GoodReads to see where other writers have pissed off their readers.”
  2. What’s Really Happening When You Think You Are Lazy, from Live Write Thrive: We all feel lazy now and then. It’s possible your laziness is actually stemming from a different problem altogether, though. Excerpt: “I don’t believe laziness exists. It is a label that shields us from our fears.”
