Must-Read Blog Award: Sara Letourneau

What a lovely surprise to find first thing this morning! πŸ˜€ Fellow fantasy writer and blogger Alex Hurst has been running the Must-Read Blog Award for the past few months. Her choices so far have been fascinating; and her own blog is a wealth of creativity, from posts about her experiences living in Japan to in-depth studies on Jungian archetypes in literature.

Thank you again, Alex, for this honor. πŸ™‚

Memoirs of a Time Here-After

There are thousands of blogs across the Internet. Many are beyond exceptional, balancing content and community in ways that are to be admired. And some deserve more love.

Must Read Blog Award, presented by Alex HurstOctober is a busy time of month for writers; with NaNoWriMo around the corner, scribes are in a flurry to prepare outlines, develop characters and refresh their memory on the various aspects of writing craft. There are a few writing blogs I follow religiously for analysis and craft, and the blog of Massachusetts-native Sara Letourneau is one of them.

They’re both reference books that cover all different kinds of supernatural creatures from a wide range of cultures.

  1. Thank you for the reblog, Sara, and congratulations. πŸ™‚ I’ve had you in my book for about three months now, and felt right before NaNo was the best time to recommend you.

    • *blushes* Thank you again, Alex. I’m working on the Comfort Zone article, btw. Not sure if it will be up before month’s end; the past couple weeks have been crazy offline, so I haven’t gotten as much blog-writing done as I would have liked. But it’s on its way, I promise. πŸ˜‰
