Had fun at the meeting yesterday...lots of good people and good food
Some tib-bits from the October 2009 Writers Digest:
The Passion of Prose…and what it really means - Donald Mass
In his words….. - One technique is to include not what a particular plot turn means in the grand scheme of things, but instead what it means to your point-of-view characters. In other words, illuminate for that person not what has changed, but how she has changed -
- Ask yourself at every writing session why you care about what is happening in the scene at hand.
Join the Crowd - complied by Jessica Stawser
Some interesting sites but I don’t think I’ll pursue - at this point I must write, write, write…
….but did you know Sue Gruen wrote Water For Elephants during NaNoWriMo?
Telling Stories - interview w/ Mitch Albom - by Melissa Hill
Mitch says: A memoir should have some uplifting quality, inspiring or illuminating, and that’s what separates a life story that can influence other people.
(His new release, Have a Little Faith, is out on September 29!!!!)
Best Writers’ Websites 2009 - lots to check out - but not until I’m ready to create my own….
There are also 3 articles on Plot & Structure which I will savor at a later date.
