This Week's Best Writing Posts: 3/2-3/8
I caught up on my reader, only to fall behind again, but these are the posts I loved this week... a few may get pushed to next week when I finally get caught up.
Truth: How Gray Can Characters Get? vlog by Natalie Whipple. I. Love. Gray. Characters.
Overwriting and why it's bad to write more than you need to make the same point by Ken Levine. A great post at one of my favorite blogs.
Black List Word Clouds by Scott Meyers. I just found this fascinating. Also loved the "Definitive List of Cliched Dialogue". Both are worth a read.
NEWS FLASH: There are no shortcuts to success by John Gilstrap. My favorite part was when he points out that Charlaine Harris and Jeffrey Deaver both exploded when they published book twenty.
And a little something extra, because two of my favorite things in life are laughing and Downton Abbey.
