Friday Round-Up - #78

Tiffany Colter, at Writing Career Coach, encourages us to use the contradictory parts of our personality to enrich our characters.

Kathryn Lang, over at Successful Freelance Writer, explores ways to beat back procrastination.

Eileen Astels Watson did a great post over at Writers Rest about Writer Collectives. This type of writers group is strictly business, no relationships to get in the way of critiquing.

The writers collectives link wouldn't work for me. :-(

Hi Jess -

The article struck me as a way to keep characters from getting too predictable.

Have a great weekend!

Blessings,
Susan :)

P.S. I don't know why the spacing on this post is so odd. Even when I tried to fix it, it remained this way.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Jess -

Thanks for letting me know about the broken link. I test all of them before publishing.

I'll see if I can fix it.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Everyone -

The Writers Rest link should be okay now. Thanks for your patience. :)

Hi Quiet Spirit -

How many of us are totally consistent all the time? I think we surprise ourselves.

Hi T.Anne -

Nice to see you. In case you didn't notice, I'm doing a book giveaway on my Wednesday, 12/2/09, post. :)

Terri Tiffany said...

I'd heard about writer collectives from someone else. I think I might enjoy that to a point but then I'd probably want to know everyone!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Terri -

I agree. While I could see this being useful for critiquing, I'd miss the personal interaction.

Blessings,
Susan :)
