Just in time for the New Year: Mouth of the Border, Emily Cavalier’s Brooklyn-based food blog. Honestly, it’s scrumptious! To die for! You can get so lost in it a half-hour passes after just glancing at her latest post. Read. Relax. Relish.
This week the spotlight shines on the Inkygirl blog http:www.inkygirl.com. You can click here for the most amazing compilation of internet resources for writers (including Twitter info and tutorials) ever! It’s a holiday gift for writers on its own!
Enjoy it. 🙂
Shakespeare and Company, a bookstore opened by American George Whitman in 1951, is holding their first Paris Literary Prize for a novella. See the rules and details here. There is also a video made by Mr. Whitman’s daughter about the prize. View the video here.
The deadline has been extended to 18 December, 2010. This deadline is for the first 3000 words, but the finished novella’s length must be 20,000 to 30,000 words long. Those making the final cut will be notified in February. If you decide to enter, good luck!

This week the blog favorite is Victoria Smith’s ‘SF Girl By Bay’, voted as a top designer blog by the London Times. It’s quirky, classy, and has endless selections of columns to read with names like “Poppytalk” and “Apartment Therapy”. Ms. Smith calls her blog one of “Modern Bohemian Design,” and it is a feast for the senses, featuring linens and weaves, textures and color. Wrapping up these sensual delights are Victoria Smith’s fun words; they teach and amuse at the same time. Enjoy this blog with your afternoon tea and fog.
