About This Writing Stuff…

February may be the shortest month of the year, but I managed to gather the largest collection of articles in quite some time on this blog. We begin with Margaret Atwood’s touching tribute to Ursula K. Le Guin.

Written Word Media offers ten publishing predictions in 2018 that are worth heeding and Writer Beware provides a comprehensive list of Author Solutions copycats.

Randy Ingermanson (aka “The Snowflake Guy”) gives us a lesson on Scene and Sequel. Lisa Cron encourages you to determine what your protagonist wants even before you start writing. Steven Pressfield reminds us that villains are not always people while Danielle Davis recommends (and I highly agree) that short stories provide an effective respite when you need a break from your novel.

All that and a lot more. Enjoy!
