It’s day one of my trip in LA and day three of NaNoWriMo, so I’m hoping my Internet time is going to be replaced with writing/snuggling with my sister time. Luckily, I prescheduled this post before I hit the train yesterday. So if you want to find some bookish or writerly things around the web, you’ve come to the right spot:
- NaNoWriMo tips from The Bookshelf.
- Joan Didion’s thoughts on keeping a notebook.
- The New York Times writes another article on the decline of the humanities at American colleges. I’m getting concerned.
- Even though I enjoyed reading Allegiant, by Veronica Roth, last week, but it appears other fans of the Divergent series weren’t as pleased. Here’s an interesting blog post about the job of books and another BookRiot article on who’s at fault when fans hate finales.
- The Genius of Jane Austen.
- Random House acquires Figment, an online community for teenage writers.
- Ten do’s and don’ts for aspiring novelists a list of great writing books.
- Mark Twain’s adorable and empowering advice for little girls.
- The secrets of The New York Times Bestseller List.
- Language Facts from around the world.
- Amazing tote bag with artist Emile Norman design.
- Last, but certainly not least, is a video from Rosiana Halse Rojas (aka John Green’s assistant) with ten tips for people who are intimidated by the telephone. I’ve watched this video several times. Seriously, this could be a game changer.

I was already obsessed with the telephone tips ;however, they may come too late to change my life.
Yeah, hopefully it’s early enough to benefit me.
