Weekend Writing Finds – Reading, writing, and a cool email app

This entry is part 1 of 10 in the series Weekend Writing Finds

All week long I gather bits and notes and finds about reading, writing, books, the writing process, the writing life and writers. I might as well share them with others. This is the first post in a weekly series. Look for more every Saturday. Take a look and see if you like them, too.

Here’s some good web stuff I found

The Homelife and {me} – This is a fairly new site. There are several free downloads including the free ebook 101 Ways to Kick your Blog up a Notch. You’ll also find a free printable Daily Planner Page.

WiseStamp – Make your email signature stand out. Show the latest Tweet, Facebook Fan Page status, or LinkedIn status. Ebayers can even promote an auction. This is a free download.

Watch Ray Bradbury 1963 – This is a great 1963 30 minute documentary video of Ray Bradbury. He offers writing advice and shares stories bout his own writing experiences. It’s entertaining, too. Talk about going back to the past.

What’s up with books?


Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading

That’s it for this week. To find more links and shares, go to the Down the Writer’s Path Facebook Fan Page. Be sure and let me know what you like and don’t like in the comments below.
