Writing Talk, What Is It?
Writing Talk is a new feature of this blog with the aim of encouraging fellow writers who are engaged in the daunting process of writing a full length book. With Writing Talk, I will share some of what I have learned but would hope that WT evolves into a discussion about writing where you, as a writer, offer your insights and ideas as well.
My experience, in terms of number of books published, is not extensive. Yet, I think what I have to offer can be useful to anyone trying to get around writer’s block or figuring out how to organize a story or develop a narrative voice or address any one of a score of other common writing hurdles. And everyone is welcome.
If nothing else, I hope Writing Talk will give me the opportunity to speak about the craft I love — writing the novel — while at the same time, allow me to meet other serious scribblers. If you are experiencing some general or specific difficulty with your own work, then please take a minute to describe your difficulty in a comment below.
I promise to address your comment and hope that what I can offer—and what others might add in the comments section—will help you on your writing journey.
Sometimes just knowing we are not the only person dealing with a particular type of difficulty is enough to get us recharged and moving again. So how about it? Will you give it a try?
My goal is to post a Writing Talk article every day. So please do drop in and say hello from time to time. And bring your coffee, tea, or wine and stay a while.
