Just a small batch of informal writerly learnings this week. Things are heating up at the day job and it’s curtailed my curation (!) There’s still some good stuff in here. And you won’t be backlogged … maybe?
K.M. Weiland shares five ways to use theme to create character arc (and vice versa). Helping Writers Become Authors
Nancy Johnson invites you to embark on the quest for your muse. Donald Maass looks at the extraordinary world: how soon and how little? Bryn Greenwood writes … about a book (panic and pitches). Cathy Yardley is keeping (and losing) the faith. Writer Unboxed
Tamar Sloan wants you to be an emotionally intelligent writer. Writers Helping Writers
Colleen M. Story: the best decisions are made with three brains. Later in the week, Janice Hardy explains why the word “conflict” frustrates so many writers. Writers in the Storm
Jim C. Hines offers some writing advice.
Kassandra Flamouri shares five ways to write strong female characters. DIY MFA
I do hope you found something you need to improve your creative practice or craft.
Thanks for stopping by and I invite you to return on Thursday for your weekly dose of thoughty inspiration 🙂
Until then, be well, my writerly friends!
