Inspiration Overload

How do you deal with too much inspiration? In a lot of ways that's not a bad thing, but I keep having ideas for great books, but can't possibly write them all. At least not for the next few years. I…Continue

Dan is launching a brand new course that some of you may be interested in. The course is Become a Creative Professional: Managing the Overwhelm of Turning Your Creative Vision into a Sustainable Career

I just wanted to share a resource the following resource with the group:

I recently attended a writing conference and was reminded of an important book that has been gathering dust on my shelves. The session teacher suggested that part of our preparation for beginning a new novel should be to interview our characters. And she recommended Noah Lukeman’s book, The Plot Thickens, as a thorough resource for interview questions. So I’m reviewing Lukeman’s chapter that includes these questions, and let me say, I’ve got my work cut out for me. Questions from appearance, medical history, family background to motivation and how they allocate their time (I’m just scratching the surface here, folks).

Let the interviews begin!

...spending time in green spaces—gardens, parks, forests—can rejuvenate the mental resources that man-made environments deplete.

Works for me every time!

I mostly lurk on here on 48 days these days, but logged in to look for some info on writing a query letter. I only had to scroll down a couple of inches and there it was. Thanks, Connie.
