WHY READ?

Why Read? was the obvous follow up post to write following Why Write? the other night!  (Though the thought of NOT reading is alien to me!).

FAIRYTALES WITH BITE

Well, I did it!  In A to Z of Character Creation Part 9, I tackle the last three letters – X, Y and Z!  X=X-rated (in terms of causing trouble), Y = Young (how does your world treat them? and Z = Zest (zest for life.  Where does your character get this attitude from?).

THIS WORLD AND OTHERS

Why Read looks at various reasons why you should read.  To read for pleasure is my top reason but to read for education, to find out more about the world is absolutely fine and your characters could read for those reasons too.

FACEBOOK – GENERAL

There’ll be few writers who won’t sympathize with my post tonight.  Is there any one who has NOT sent off a piece of work and then spotted errors in it afterwards?!

FACEBOOK – FROM LIGHT TO DARK AND BACK AGAIN

I look ahead to going to the Swanwick Summer Writers’ School. My flash fiction piece, George Changes HIs Mind, started life as a draft piece at the school last year and ended up in From Light to Dark and Back Again.  Would like to complete draft of follow up book while away.
