June: The Round Up


Delayed this a little to avoid clashing with the Writers Carnival but here’s the round up of things that caught my attention in the writing blogosphere this month. Next month I might rethink the categories a wee bit. Also I’ve not actually managed to read that much flash fiction this month, struggling to keep up with so much great output but I’m working on an experiment with the Twitter API to pull things together into a more compiled format.

OVERALL STORY OF THE MONTH:

What Dorothy Does in Her Spare Time by Paul Jessup

What happened to Dorothy after Oz?

HUMOUROUS STORY OF THE MONTH:

Being Green by Catherine Russell

An enjoyable tale of a very modern serial killer.

CHARMING STORY OF THE MONTH:

Dwindled by Monica Marier

Two Norse gods have escaped from Hel and set themselves up in (or rather under) Washington DC. Love the way this story unveils more and more of the bigger picture, piece by piece.

WRITING ADVICE OF THE MONTH:

Writing a synopsis can rock your novel by Roz Morris

How to tackle that bugbear of all writers – writing your synopsis – and how to turn into a useful exercise to benefit your writing.

NON-WRITING ADVICE OF THE MONTH:

10 Beautiful Social Media Infographics by Mashable

Not really strictly writing related at all but since blogging and twittering, etc are becoming every more important for writers I thought it would be worth showing off these infographs illustrating the current state of social media. Plus they just look beeeautiful.

ALBUM OF THE MONTH:
1 Inch – 1/2 Mile by Grasscut

I’m not even going to pretend this is an album for everyone – it is clicky, buzzy lo-fi electronica at it’s weirdest. If you like that sort of thing then you’ll love this (after a few listenings). Bizarre in places, haunting throughout and refreshingly original.
