Weekend Roundup: June 19-25

Tweet of the Day: J.K. Rowling Is Self-Publishing: A Closer Look


So, what happened this week?

Pottermore got revealed, sort off. It seems that Mrs. Rowling has decided to harness the power of the internet, fan fiction and digital media to upend the publishing world on its head.

Is it a revolution?

Or just a clever marketing ploy to keep Harry Potter alive?

Time will tell.

Meanwhile on this blog (yours and mine of course. Mostly mine, but still 😉 ) :

  • Sun: Sunday Tweet: Medieval Pagans, where in a discover a most awesome blog that you should check out.
  • Mon: TV Tropes Monday, taught that as writers, it might good thing to Break the Cutie.
  • Tues: A post about the Fantasy genre with that ever enduring myth of the Arthurian Legend(s).
  • Wen: Wizards’ World War heats up. Love found and fought over, as the team makes their Escape.
  • Thur: Old flash fiction piece from SuD reposted: The Last Bout.
  • Fri: Short Story Fridays continue with Severus the Rogue: Reprieve.

That’s what the week brought us. I hope that I won’t be as tardy as I was this week.



A reminder:

This is my Songwriter’s Story Challenge:

  • Pick a song you like.
  • Write a story based on, about or inspired by the song/lyrics. A link to the song itself (lyrics or youtube video) would help.
  • Post it on your blog
  • Limit: 1,000 words or less.
  • Include a link back to this post.
  • And leave your blog/post link on the comments so that I may add it to the list.

The Challenge starts right now and will run through  July. Ends on July 31st.
