Friday Links

A light week for links, hypothetical reader, but the few we’ve got are quality!

Writing Links

From Publisher’s Weekly comes the search for the world’s most literary graveyard. Seems they dug up (ha!) a cemetery with Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Nathanial Hawthorne, and a few other notable names, all in the same place. Best part, though? Even the name is literary: Sleepy Hollow!

Next up is a fantastic article that puts you inside the mind of a literary magazine editor, helping you understand what they want and what gets rejected. Highly recommended. (Found via Kristan Hoffman.)

Non-Writing Links

Ken Jennings, the guy who’s crazy good at Jeopardy, is also crazy good at – er – another sort of endeavor. Look, just click this link, okay? I can almost guarantee you’ll regret it.

And finally, remember earlier this week when I suggested 28 words to use instead of “awesome”? Well, Natalia Sylvester commented with a hilarious (and very relevant) video, and I have to share. I think you’ll enjoy it, it’s pretty aweso – er, outstanding.

For those in the States, have a wonderful three-day weekend. Everyone else, if you sneak a little happiness into your job on Monday, I won’t tell anyone. See you later!
