Eye on the Blogs: Snark and Urban Fantasy Pet Peeves

From time to time I plan to link to interesting blog posts that I’ve come across, and sometimes comment on how they impact my writing, The City, or me.

Nicole Peeler, over at Borders Blog, posted an article on snark and self-depreciation, after having become known as someone for ‘snark’. I tend to suffer from it from time to time, and the plan is for some of it to rub off on Braeden in the stories – but there is a fine line to be trod between snark and being a jackass. The answer, according to Nicole? Self-depreciation.

While over at Literary Escapism, Abigail of All Things Urban Fantasy made a guest post about the Top Ten Urban Fantasy Peeves for writers of urban fantasy and the paranormal. Well worth the read, if only to know what not to include. And number one on the list? Random and unwarranted sex breaks.
