Re: Do you have a new blog post?

I finally posted the books I read in February... The past month has required me to put my blog lower on the list of priorities, but my schedule has calmed down and I will be returning to the blogosphere now!

Re: What pays your rent?

I'm in college, studying English Literature and planning on becoming a book editor. I currently work as a intern for a magazine that does book reviews, only one or two days a week, and I still live with my parents and do not make even close to enough money to move out. Hopefully my writing will star...

Re: National Novel Writing FEBRUARY 2012

Aimee, really sorry to hear about your computer. Lately I've been using DropBox to avoid this kind of risk. I think it's worth looking into for the future. I looked it up. It's quite interesting and useful, though for someone who has multiple computers/a smart phone. I just have my one laptop that'...

Re: Help! My main character has no character

I had a similar situation as this. I tried every possible angle to try to keep the MC in the story: different POV, different MC with that character still around, even deleting the character all together. Then I finally figured out what the problem was, after about five drafts that got to about 20 pa...

Re: What is your writing weakness? (Let's call this therapy)

I definitely have a motivation problem... I wouldn't call it writer's block, but it has similar symptoms and effects. I just can't seem to force myself to sit down and actually type! And a writing weakness, when I've actually got words on the page? I tend to make my characters' negative traits a lit...
