For those just joining me, I started going through the Writing Excuses Master Class several weeks ago. I haven't posted every entry of homework and the like, so this week's post jumps forward into story structure. I've done this because, well, who wants to see every bit of someone else's homework? And because I would… Continue reading WE Master Class – What’s the Point of This Anyway?
For the last several weeks I've been undergoing the Writing Excuses Master Class put out a couple years ago. If you're not familiar with the folks at Writing Excuses, I highly recommend them.

This is three chapters more than I had outlined, but something happened near the end that surprised me and, now that I look at it, really makes sense for the story. It's always fun when things work out this way. It means my… Continue reading Writing the Unpopular
I've been a fan of Writing Excuses for a long time now. I promised myself that I would start to read all of the books from the authors who put out Writing Excuses since they take the time out of their busy schedules to put out this podcast for free. I started with Brandon Sanderson… Continue reading Book Review : Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal
