Writing advice with a “twist,” love on fire in Cleveland, and zombie raccoons, oh my!

It was a busy week here at Rust Belt Girl. In case you missed it:

I joined NPR and other credible news outlets in reporting the “zombie” raccoons of Youngstown, Ohio.

I reviewed Mark Winegardner’s 2001 masterpiece, Crooked River Burning, which follows two star-crossed lovers on a journey through Cleveland in the 50s and 60s.

Of course, what week would be complete without a little writerly advice, this time with a “twist,” for National Licorice Day?

And…I’m happy to report that I’m still welcoming new followers who found me by way of my Interview with “Furnishing Eternity” author David Giffels, which was featured on WordPress Discover March 31. See it, and so many other blogs worth your time, here. Always fun to discover something new.

Happy weekend discovering to you!

What’s on your literary plate?

  1. *raises hand* I’m another of the ones here because of your discover post! But I appreciate the candid voice of a couple posts ago as much, if not more, than the one that brought me here originally. It might also be some selfish fascination, seeing as I’m not too far from you. I’m feeling pulled to search out and find bloggers who are closer rather than farther away (though not necessarily writing about the same things!)

    Finding those people will be a slow process, so I suppose that is what’s on my radar right now.

    1. Thanks so much for checking out my blog! Yes, in this huge blogging world I understand the desire to connect locally! It does take a while to connect with the right readers; for me, the Community Pool has been a great help. And it’s fun to read about such diverse topics–your blog among them! Happy weekend to you.

  2. March 31st was my birthday, but I started reading you before that! Congrats on being Discover-ed. Well deserved! This week I wrote about writing and motherhood, and next week is more of the same. Please add your thoughts to my latest post (for now) Driving Backwards over Legos!
