What's Up The Street For Next Week?

Memorial Day is the first sign that Summer is close at hand. Some of us have already started experiencing some very summer-ish type of weather. Well, pull out the sunblock, shades, and swimsuits and read about what’s up the street for next week at The Writers Alley?

Monday – In honor of Memorial Day, Pepper posts special excerpts from the book War Letters”. Stop by and share in the beauty of the written word from soldiers in their most desperate and courageous moments.

Tuesday – When and how to we incorporate backstory into our main story? Find out with Sherrinda as she posts about Spine-tingling Backstory

Wednesday – Mary talks about Getting Lost in the Details. As the proverb states “a word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in leaves of silver.” How do we make those words golden?

Thursday – Join Casey as she discusses Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery: Writing What you Read.

Friday – Laugh a little with Krista today as she posts about The Delicate Balance: How to be a good writer without causing your family to hate even the sight of books. Does this hit home to anyone else?!?
