“We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master.” ~Ernest Hemingway
There’s no end to the things we can learn about the craft of writing, no matter how many books we may have published, and the industry changes so much, so quickly, just trying to keep up can be a full-time job. I like to spend part of each day scanning blogs and articles and collecting links to read in my “spare time,” (like any of us have any of that) and I try to share as many of them as I can with other writers.
Lately, I’ve been experimenting with different ways to share that information with other writers. I’ve recently created a board on Pinterest where I’ll be pinning links to many of the articles I share on Twitter.
I’ve also created a daily paper through paper.li, the Dancing on Coals Daily, where I’ll collect articles on the craft and the business of writing. A link to that paper is tweeted out daily around 11:00 am on my Dancing on Coals Twitter feed (@DancingonCoals), and I’ll also tweet it out on my personal Twitter feed (@SherryLewis), so watch for it there too.
