3 Great Blog Posts

I visited some really great sites during a blogfest middle of December, and about half way through, I wished I had kept a list of the best posts. So, I didn't start making notes until late in the game, but I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.

How to Write an Epic Adventure ... now interestingly enough, this post comes from a gaming site, but the concepts presented would help ANY writer take their story to the next level. Definitely worth stopping in and reading!

Create a Personal Universe Deck ... create a *what* ?? Seriously. At first, I scrunched up my eyebrows, and thought, what the heck are you talking about? But, after reading it twice (seriously, I can be a little slow-to-grasp sometimes) I realized what a great idea this is ... I had never heard of it before. I'm going to give it a test drive and see what happens. I let you know in a future post.

Traditional Publishing vs. Self Publishing ... I don't think this blog post was actually a part of the blogfest, but somehow I happened upon it, and I thought it presented a great discussion of the topic.

What's the best blog post or tip you've read recently?


  1. The second one does sound intriguing. I'm going to check it out.

  2. Ooo. I'll have to check out the second one. Thanks.

  3. Hi Margo!

    I really liked the character piece that faraway eyes did on her father for the Deja vu blogfest at Great idea to profile some of the best posts from the fest. There are so many great ones out there!

  4. I love the personal universe deck idea; I used a lot of random methods when I used to write poetry. They're great for getting around blocks and making your mind work in new directions.

  5. OK, I'm obviously a sheep. I just had to check out the personal universe deck idea too! Thanks for linking to it, it's one of the blogfest entries I managed to miss in that loooong list.
