Writerly Wednesday

Hmm, haven’t had one of these in a while…

  • First up: Erika Liodice. Erika runs a great blog about getting “beyond the gray” — beyond the things that are separating you from your dream. I had the great honor of being interviewed by Erika about my recent decision to pursue writing full-time. (She called me a “Dream Chaser,” I love that!) Wanna head over and leave some love? Please? OKUROCKTHX!
  • Second: The awesomely titled blog Blood-Red Pencil featured 10 simple but solid steps to a better story. #7 and #8 are my faves, although #10 is probably the most valuable.
  • Last but not least: the lovely T.S. Bazelli wrote a little piece on “this tangled jungle” we call writing and inspiration. Guaranteed to make you smile.

  1. Hmm, I wonder how much difference there is between the importance of story and character? I guess I’m hoping not much because character is so much easier for me to develop than story!

  2. Oh I’m so guilty of #9, there’s a list of words I keep falling back on, and I need to weed them out.

    Speaking of weeding… Thanks for the story shout out :D

  3. “KH: Do it! Trust me, it’s both that simple and that complicated.”

    Love this SO much :) I know I’ve said it before, but I so admire you for doing this. You’re inspiring!

    Oh pish. You’re good at story too.

    LOL thanks! I hope I don’t prove to be TOO crazy…

    T.S.-
    Me too, but I’m learning to be harsh with myself/them in revision. All my “just”s and “then”s come out!
