So I promise the reason I've been quiet is a good one; I've been very hard at work on very pressing deadlines on stories that I ... read more

FOR THE WRITER…

  • WriterUnboxed - Fresh Starts–spring cleaning for your creativity
      Spring! Outside my window, a blue jay is trumpeting his presence. A herd of pigeons and finches are gathered around the tree with the bird feeders, chattering and gossiping in voices so collectively loud that once a repairman in my house covered his ears in protest. The windows are open to the breezes because it’s a veryveryvery warm spring in Colorado, as it seems to be almost everywhere. Winter, it seems, is finally over. ... read more

  • Jane Friedman - How to Land an Agent for a Self-Published Book
    One of the most frequent questions in my inbox is: “I’ve self-published, but now I want an agent. How do I get one?” Usually the writer wants an agent because they’ve been disappointed by their sales or have experienced frustration in getting readers. Other times, the author’s plan was to self-publish first and magically attract attention that would lead to a traditional book deal—something that is even more of a rare occurrence than landing a book ... read more

  • The Write Conversation - What’s in Your Character’s Closet?
    by DiAnn Mills @DiAnnMillsA creative writer grabs a reader by the heart and leads that reader into the character’s inner world. Consider that place a closet where life experiences are stored. There a character’s motivation comes alive. Secrets are revealed. Habits exposed. Fears emerge. Dreams surface.If the writer successfully captures the reader’s imagination, the reader becomes the character, living the story vicariously from beginning to end. What does the reader find inside the mysterious and always ... read more

Workshop Episode 111 (Guest Host: Myke Cole)

Myke Cole – author of The Shadow Ops Series (including “Gemini Cell”, “Javelin Rain” and the forthcoming “Seige Line” – returns to the Big Chair in the RTP virtual studios to lend his brainstorming-fu to a tale of future warfare, powered armor, and artificial intelligence.

The tale is offered up by creageous Guest Writer Jonathan Zerrusen, a tale of two heroes, the daughter of a nation honored to wear the first powered armor into battle, and a newly transcended (and illegal) AI on opposite sides of a global conflict. The brainstorm froth is frothy indeed as we explore the nuances of cyber characters, deepening the conflict within and around the protagonists, and generally dig up a mountain of Literary Gold (as you do). Hit that PLAY button and get yours!
