A blog about writing and all things story…
This is my yard for the last three days. ARG! Snowbound and trapped in a crust of ice. My neighbor’s tree has folded over their fence and is engulfing my garden shed. Oh well, it’s pretty.
So, in addition to the amazing book, I went to Louisa’s Café here in Seattle and started writing with Jack and Bob, two local writing masters that I’ve mentioned a thousand times in my blog – because they are true writing gurus. They teach a template for how to write fiction: Story first, Structure second, and Style third.
These things have changed my writing dramatically.
THIS time, Clark is excited and loves my book. YEAH!!!!!! Still I have lots of work, but YEAH!!!!! In my business career I always believed I had to sit at the feet of the masters to learn, grow and become successful. It’s the same in writing. I’m learning, growing and continuing on my path. And with some skilled guidance and direction I just may make it. How about you: who is your guru, what books have illuminated your story telling, whose work do you read that informs your writing? Share it with us and I’ll post it for others who are still searching. Thanks! Keep writing and remember it’s a life long apprenticeship.
