FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
In A to Z of Character Creation Part 8, I look at U, V and W. It is becoming more of a challenge to think of topics connected with character creation as I draw towards the end of the alphabet but I’ve managed it for tonight! U is for Universally Loved/Hated/Despised, V is for Victim and W is for Witty and Wise (two “W’s” for the price of one there!). I ask if your characters fall into any of these categories.
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
In Why Write? I list several reasons for writing, any or all of which might apply to most writers. I think it useful, especially when all that seems to be coming into the inbox or letterbox are rejections, to remind yourself why you write and what you love about it. It can help keep you going! And persistence is really key here.
CHANDLER’S FORD TODAY/FACEBOOK – GENERAL AND FROM LIGHT TO DARK AND BACK AGAIN
I look at writer co-operatives in tonight’s Chandler’s Ford Today post and why they are useful. I also introduce a new local one I’m pleased to be part of – the Chandler’s Ford Writers’ Hub. We will be holding a children’s poetry competition later in the year and hope to be at various local events in the next few months. Hopefully it’ll be lots of fun!
