I read. A lot. At the end of each month you’ll find links on the Around the Web posts to blog articles I’ve found of interest during the month. I hope they will prove to be of interest to you too.



Though Novel Rocket is a writer’s site, I found this post on “editing life” by one of my favorite authors, Tamera Alexander, to be spiritually inspiring.

This post by Andy Lee on The Write Conversation really spoke to me, but it’s not just for writers. It’s for anyone in any work situation who seeks to know, “Am I in love with Jesus or my devotion to Jesus?”

“Condemnation is the hard ground we fall upon when we are wrong. If we stay there, we hurt and grovel in the self-inflicted pain.” Such true words from Barbara Latta in her post “What Happens When a Christian Fails?


Are you in one of those reading slumps where your whole attitude about reading is “meh?” I get this way sometimes, then feel guilty for not wanting to read. The Sassy Book Geek gives you thirteen tips for getting back in the reading groove.

Are you reading The Tox Files series by Ronie Kendig? Then, you’ll enjoy this First Line Friday post from Beth Erin at Faithfully Bookish. It’s from the second book in the series, Crown of Souls. #MustRead

“Novel reading is a great way to practice being human.” Do you think reading makes you smarter and more empathetic? An interesting post by Derek Beres on the Big Think blog.


Noticing your work is being pirated…read without reimbursement, STOLEN? Rachelle Gardner addressed the problem on the Books and Such blog with this post.

Need help with dialog? Casey Heringshaw gives writers six ways to create “great dialog” in this post from The Writer’s Alley.

Are you considering branching out with a pseudonym? Even if you aren’t, you’ll want to read this advice on Seekerville by author Dora Hier/Tori Kayson…for future reference.


What posts by others have you read this month that spoke to you? (No links, please, just give the title of the post and the blog name.)

As an author of heartwarming historical and contemporary romance, Sandra Ardoin engages readers with page-turning stories of love and faith. Rarely out of reach of a book, she's also an armchair sports enthusiast, country music listener, and seldom says no to eating out.
