Here we go:
Fantastic essay about getting a wig in France from writer Suzanne White in The New York Times Magazine.
Speaking of France, A Year in the Merde author Stephen Clarke has a new book, 1000 Years of Annoying the French.
Great essay in Brevity by Lisa Gill on the craft of writing, fun footnotes included.
If you're a writer and don't yet know about Mira's list, be sure to check out her post on "Big Fellowships and Grants for Writers". Yes, money for writers. You heard me right. Money, writers, in the same sentence. Yes.
And finally, this list wouldn't be complete without a little shameless self-promotion. Last week, Writer Abroad was featured over on ABCNews.com in the article, "Have Resume, Will Travel," by Michelle Goodman. And yes, Europe really does teach you how to relax.
Coming up later this week on Writer Abroad:
Wednesday: Author Philip Graham reflects on traveling (and writing) with children.
Friday: The authors of the newly released travel memoir, The Lost Girls, share their wisdom on writing, publishing, and traveling the world.
