The Writing Process Blog Tour (Hannah Givens)

Here is Hannah’s response on the Writing Process Blog Tour! Like me, she hit on blogging and fiction… she went for a third, however, and added her history writing!

I didn’t cover how I do research/history writing (as a fellow history major!) but I noticed many similarities. How I learned to work on history also informs a lot of how I write other things now, especially blog posts. Collect what you’re going to talk about, your outside sources (or links), and then outline, and then write. By the time you’re writing, it can be a breeze!

Also – I love the Writing Process as shown in pictures of Robert Downey Jr. – worth checking out her post just for this!

I was tagged for the Writing Process Blog Tour by CompGeekDavid of DBCII and Comparative Geeks! I appreciate it very much, and I really enjoy both those blogs, check them out!

The rules for the tour are simple:

  1. Link to the previous blogger
  2. Answer the four writing-process-related questions
  3. Nominate/tag three more bloggers

Here are my nominees before I get going. I tried to pick people who haven’t been tagged yet… If you don’t do awards or chain posts (or have already done this one), no worries, just consider this a shout-out.

  1. Nerd in the Brain. This awesome geeky blog posts several times a day, and I’d love to know how Emily gets it done!
  2. Only Fragments. I haven’t been following this blog for long and I’m still figuring out what goes on, but basically there are stories and poems about the same two characters in any number…

The Wit and Wisdom of the Lumineers

Here’s my contributed post! Been too busy for a new post on DBCII… busy writing for these many other blogs! If you haven’t seen this, though, a little self-promotion seems in order 🙂

One of the most interesting bands I have found in recent years is the Lumineers. They are hard to describe in a few words, hard to nail down to a genre or style. iTunes describes them as “front porch Americana.” Not a bad start.

I want to consider a few of the great traits of this band, to share with you what I like about this band, and to share why I think you they deserve a listen – if you haven’t already! Their eponymous first studio album came out in 2012, so I’m at least hoping there’s more to come from them soon.

In the meantime, this is a band from Denver, and I’m from Denver, and it would be neat to see them play there sometime! But for now, my sense of the Lumineers.

A Sense of History

One of the things that stands out about the Lumineers…
