Just wanted to share some content that might prove helpful or inspirational.

Plus, I miss the short, condensed blog posts that I started with. ;->

Have a great Sunday.

If you use too much exposition, your story may feel like a lecture, and you run the risk of neglecting character development. #POV #POVBook

Web/Twitter Gems August 14-18

  1. Creative Success – A 7-Lesson Guide to Creating by Jessica James
    http://brainzooming.com/creative-success-a-7-lesson-guide-to-creating-by-jessica-james/16608/   #5…not my favorite step, which means I should definitely buck up and follow through.
  1. “Be ruthless about protecting writing days…” J.K. Rowling

  1. Miserable Day Job Turns Into $100,000 Side Income  https://sidehustleschool.com/episode/43
    This person used her blog to side-hustle her way out of her job. These eight-minute podcasts might just nudge you to venture forward yourself.

    “Outlines are the last resource of bad fiction writers who wish to God they were writing masters’ theses.” –STEPHEN KING

  1. So, if, unlike Stephen King, you’re at least straddling the fence on outlining, Steven Pressfield’s foolscap method might just provide that happy medium. http://www.stevenpressfield.com/2011/04/the-foolscap-method/
    Key words: “Shut up and begin.” There are plenty of other resources that explore the foolscap method of diving into a writing project.
