On December 12, 2014, a momentous thing happened. It was the date my first post went live! That’s five years ago, yesterday. Time for a looking back.
I don’t think this category needs a lot of explanation.
I am a writer, and I like to write about writing. Posts can be about something I noticed, or learned.
If you don’t write yourself, this category might not be for you, but who doesn’t write at least ocassionally in their work? Not all of my blog posts apply to e-mails or reports, but some definitely do.
Also, knowing more about writing can help you better appreciate novels, or — be warned — ruin them for you.
When I write a story, I have a way of working, a process if you will. I’ve heard and seen others work in a completely different way. Which begs the question: are all ways of doing things right?
I got to visit Worldcon in Dublin last week, which was awesome. Since there’s a lot of coverage about things like the Hugos already, through Twitter, and on Facebook, I’ll do it differently. I’ll cover some of the less known panels that took place. Also, this is more interesting to non-scifi geeks.
Writing a great story starts with thinking up great characters. This sounds easier than it is. Two tools that can help are the positive and negative trait thesauruses.
