Snow and Writerly Links!

It's a snow day here in South Jersey today. The roads are plowed, but not that well, so I'm at home. Yay! But I still have to work. Boo! But it means I can get a lot of writing done tonight when I would normally be commuting. Yay!

Since it might be a day off for a lot of you, I thought I'd post a round-up of some of my favorite blog posts from the last few days.

Editing and Getting Critiqued
- Handling Criticism at Querytracker.
- How to Start Your Book by Elana Johnson
- A three part series on Editing by Chuck Wendig (***WARNING - This is NSFW***) - Part 1 (the copy edit) | Part 2 (content) | Part 3 (Context)

Query Letters
- A two parter from Shannon Messenger on how to write a good one- Part One and Part Two
- One of the best rule breaking queries I've read.

- How to Write a Good Blog Comment by Nathan Bransford
- Can Blogging Train Your Muse? by Jami Gold
