A sampling of blog posts from Literary Mama editors and friends

… or in other words: blog posts that have pulled me away from my own writing because they’re instructive, informative, interesting, or IMHO, just a plain ol’ good read…

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did and if so, please consider following or subscribing to the individual blog(s). That way, you won’t miss any posts and you’ll help build his/her readership.


At Brain, Mother, the blog for Brain, Child Magazine:  A call from school introduces Carley Moore to the fine art of nitpicking,  which she describes as "a very particular kind of hard focused labor in On Nitpicking and Co-Parenting. And, in A Future Letter From Your Crying Child, Emily Grosvenor writes, from the child's perspective, about all those photos moms post to social media.


At Shebooks:  Looking for information about publishing a book? Check out these author interviews with our Fiction Editor Susan Ito, author of The Mouse Room and columnist Ona Gritz, author of On the Whole: A Story of Mothering and Disability. Then read about the Shebooks Kickstarter Campaign to raise funds to publish more ebooks.


At Write On Mamas: "I thought that overseeing my writing group’s anthology as a self-published book would interfere with my own writing. Instead it made me a stronger writer," writes LM's Profiles Editor Joanne Hartman, in Editing Matters. Read more about the group's recently-released book on our blog -- it's part of our summer line-up of book giveaways.


At Mental Floss:  You could spend an entire morning listening to these 19 Rare Recordings of Famous Authors. I suggest you start at the top and incorporate one into your get-the-muse-going routine for each of the next 19 days.


At Huffington Post: LM Contributor Lisa Sadikman's post 4 Truths About Our Post-Baby Bodies was a hit in the social media circles. She writes about her 6 Minutes and 9 Seconds of Fame on her blog, Flingo.
