Time for another blog hop smash up!
This week, I am very grateful for connections. I have had the chance to interview a great writer, Devon Martin, connected with a comedian from Los Angeles (can’t wait to see her perform), talked to fellow Authors, and Flash Fiction writers, and was able to share some of the great work they are doing with others.
Warm afternoons – now there is another things to be grateful for. Mornings are chilly right now, but at least the afternoons are decent. I need warmth, I always freeze, so warm afternoons are like a balm for my body and soul.
Celebrations – this week there are two coming up, a celebration linked to Patron Goddess Hecate (January 31st), and Imbolc (February 2nd). For both days I want to bake something, just not quite sure what yet – not exactly a diet friendly celebration, hehe.
This week, we are asked to talk about writer tips we found helpful. I think I will serve you best, by answering this question by giving you links to sites and a list of books, so you can check them out yourself, and take from that what works best for YOU:
Save the Cat, by Blake Snyder (scripts)
Getting Things Done by David Allen (not exactly about writing, but teaching you how to organize your thoughts, notes, and time, which I find essential for a writer)
How To Write a Novel Using the Snowflake Method by Randy Ingermanson
Script – filled with articles on writing, not just for film and television writers http://www.scriptmag.com/features/balls-of-steel-get-real-with-your-writing-goals
Get Into The Story – filled with good advice, again can be translate to writing, especially if you have problems with dialogue – learn it from screenwriters http://gointothestory.blcklst.com/2012/01/1-2-7-14.html
another script writing blog – but hey, that is what I am currently focusing on http://johnaugust.com/
So, I hope you find something useful there. I am looking forward to hearing what inspired you this week!
