Or… What’s going on here?
What’s going on is: I have a bookshelf… or
three four five… full of writing books. Many of them I’ve read. Most of them I have not. It’s time to read them.
But we’re not doing a book-by-book review-type-of-thing here.
I’ve gone through the table of contents and indexes (or indices, if you prefer) of all these books and come up with twelve monthly themes and four or five tools under each theme, one of which we’ll tackle each week.
(Or, at least, that’s how we started. We now post more or less three times a month, Monday . . . Wednesday . . . and Friday, with approximately ten days lapsing between every post . . . unless I’m between posting spurts, giving all I’ve got to finishing a project, in which case such lapses have lasted years but hopefully only last a few months.)
On Wednesdays, we’ll look at how the master storytellers make use of said tool.
And on Fridays, we’ll (*Gulp*) share how we’ve applied the tool to our own writing. It’ll be great.
So… Welcome! I hope we can learn a lot from each other.
