Uplifting Quotes for Writers…


Here’s a link to a site with quotes by famous authors for writers. You can get there from here.

This is one I really love:

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
Mark Twain

I like this one, too:

“If you would be a writer, first be a reader. Only through the assimilation of ideas, thoughts and philosophies can one begin to focus his own ideas, thoughts and philosophies.”
Allan W. Eckert

Found a Great Blog: "Frost Lord" by TD McFrost


Those who follow me know how I get when I find a new blog I like. It happened late last night while I was web surfing with my tablet. The minute I read one post, and then checked out the blog links, I knew I’d wind up linking to this guy just by checking out the smart tasteful blogs he reads. (You can tell a lot about a person by the blogs he/she reads ­čÖé

I also like to cover a lot of territory here on this blog. I shy away from things too political and try to keep my posts objective. One of the areas I like to cover is all things publishing related. His blog is, indeed, publishing related. And scoping out fresh, young talented authors like this guy is probably one of the most important publishing related topics I can think of.

T.D. McFrost’s blog, Frost Lord, is not only well written, it’s done with a nice sense of humor. The “voice” is excellent. You can get there from here and check it out yourselves to see what I mean. I’m linking on my sidebar right now. I don’t see that many blogs that make me want to read more all that often, and when I do I zoom in on them as fast as I can.

Here’s his profile, “Secret Identity,” taken verbatim from the blog, so you can see what I’m talking about regarding his sense of humor.

Hi, my name is Tyson Devon McFrost but you may call me Frost Lord. ^_^

I’m 22 years old, I live under the sink and I’m a superhero. Now I know some of you are wondering “Hey, what’s this superhero doing blogging when he should be saving the world?” Well, the thing is: I’m lazy. And it’s not my mom’s fault (’cause the lord knows she sure tried), it’s just that there’s so much “human” stuff to do.

I mean, my goodness, where do I begin?

I love surfing huge, gnarly waves; I love taking my bike up on mountain trails; I love archery (I’m quite good); I love fried chicken, gravy and mashed potatoes; I love girls with a sense of humor, glasses, intelligence and six toes; I love animals, especially dogs, lions, tigers snakes, kinkajous, ferrets and mice; I love my mom, my sisters and my abs; but above all else I lurveeeee VIDEO GAMES!

I’m a nerd, really–a supernerd!–and that’s just how I like it.

There are a lot of things about me that will surprise you. One of the more thrilling details is the fact that I knew Rihanna. Yes, I’m talking about the superstar singer with red hair. We were friends once, but I was foolish enough to mess that up when I pushed her into a river and caused her to bruise her elbows. She taddled, my mom whopped me and we never spoke again.

Ah yes, fond memories they were…

Sit Back and Enjoy Something Nice

And it has nothing to do with erotica or happy endings. I came across a nice author blog the other day.

Here’s the link.

Check out all the posts on this blog. And, as far as blogs go, it’s very well done. Simple to navigate and the posts are never too long…which I’m working on getting right sooner or later.

People prefer short blogs posts. And I’ve heard that if you take up more than half the page, you lose them fast.
