I subscribe to quite a few interesting RSS feeds in the book/writing niches. Perhaps you do as well, but in any case, I’d like to share my starred links from this week:

Over the past several months as I was trying to pull myself back together enough to continue blogging and writing on a regular schedule, I toyed with a few ideas for this blog/website. Those changes have now been made and are as follows:
- The “Creative Writing” page no longer exists. Separate pages have been developed instead.
- All of my current poetry is listed on the “Poetry” page.
- My short stories and other short fiction pieces are on the “Short Stories” page.
- Both of my novels have their own pages, and the chapters are posted there one by one as I write or rewrite them. When revisions are made to those chapters, I’ll make a separate post so my readers stay current.
I’m getting used to change, even though I still have some issues with it. But then, I suppose we all do. I’m also toying with the idea of a domain change, but that will come when my current one expires, which isn’t for another year. I may find a new look for ANP, as well. We shall see what interesting things come up.
For now, stay tuned and happy writing,
With such plagues as writers block and lack of motivation constantly lurking around every corner, quotes from other writers (who have most likely dealt with these same problems) can be a saving grace of sorts for the rest of us. Hence the reasoning behind the creation of “Quotes Corner.”Certain weeks may be themed (by author), while others may be random.
Writers need inspiration, and need it often. It is my hope that you’ll find some here.
- “Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.”
- “I want people to bow as they see me and say he is gifted with poetry, he has seen the presence of the creator.”
- “My own experience is that a certain kind of genius among students is best brought out in bed.”
- “Poetry is the one place where people can speak their original human mind. It is the outlet for people to say in public what is known in private.”
- “The only thing that can save the world is the reclaiming of the awareness of the world. That’s what poetry does.”
- ““I have a new method of poetry. All you got to do is look over your notebooks… And think of anything that comes into your head, especially the miseries… Then arrange in lines of two, three or four words each, don’t bother about sentences …”
