This Week's Best Writing Posts 3/9-3/15
I was behind on my reader, so some of these are older than a week, but they were too good to pass up.
Story Junkie by Keirsten White. Loved her account of why she writes.
Being Evil: Plotting from the Antagonist's Perspective by Janice Hardy. Love this. Love this, love this, love this.
"Yawsuhh, I'ze gwine gogitzome skrimps teat." I would never write this by John Ramsey Miller .Thank you. I hate reading dialect.
In the beginning by Elena Johnson. By now, you should know how much I adore structure.
Stuck In A Creative Funk? Try These 12 Tips by Jeff Goins.
Questions For Your Beta Readers by Jodi Renner. I might actually start using this when I read other people's stuff. It's such a great guide. (Another good one this week, along the same lines is by Carly Watters.)
Anatomy of A First Draft by Dianne K. Salerni. I'm including this solely for the dead possum analogy.
