Year in Review
Looking back, here are my picks for my favorite posts this year, one per month. (I didn’t count Perry’s posts. he can do his own review if’n he wants to. *grin*)
In which I found myself struggling to continue working on a project.
In which I share my idea box — the place I keep my notes and story ideas.
In which I talk about how important it is for writers to allow themselves the same freedom as an artist in their sketchbook.
A quick method to give a first pass evaluation on a new story idea.
In which I discuss the stages of writing and learning to become a better writer.
A three part post in which I discuss my growing disappointment with the short story environment.
In which I talk about the pain of realizing old favorite books aren’t always as good as remembered.
In which I discuss the importance of reading.
In which I discuss the importance of a forgiving nature as a writer … forgiving YOURSELF as well as others.
In which I discuss what I think the first quarter of a book should contain, plot-wise.
In which I discuss the REAL truth about Mary Sues … the fact that everyone kind of loves a character that rides the line.
In which I try to turn the “resolution” of writing a book into reachable goals.
