Greetings fellow writers!
Beginning in January 2012, I started hosting Yo Ho, A Writer’s Life for Me. It is a study group where we writers will examine the art, the craft, and the business of writing fiction. Each week we will read and discuss a chapter or two from the appointed writer’s help book and then apply what we learn through provided exercises or make up our own.
I look forward to connecting with other authors where we can encourage each other while we learn the art, the craft, and the business of writing fiction.
On a side note:
Don’t let all the fuss about the rules, the should-nots and the do-nots get you discouraged. Learning the mechanics of writing builds a good foundation, but its also about balancing it with the art of writing. So as Elizabeth Swan said, “Hang the code and hang the rules. They’re more like guidelines anyways.” 🙂
As of December 2012, Yo Ho A Writer’s Life for Me will be canceled with the hopes of opening a private group on Facebook at a later date. There are so many other awesome blogs out there on the topic of writing fiction, I really don’t need to add my voice to it. I’ve been compiling a growing list of resources on my website, so check it out if you’re interested. 🙂
Please feel free to add links to other sites, books. blogs, etc that you’ve found helpful on your writer’s journey. Thanks!
Keep pressing on!
