HE WROTE: The Craft of Writing
Jenny and I were discussing it and we're going to do more posts about the actual craft and art of writing. While there has been some discussion of this in earlier posts such as the initiating event, we're going to try to tackle other subjects with both of us commenting on how we see the matter. We think it will be interesing because we approach some things very differently, yet we've collaborated on a book and are writing another.
For example, mention the word Prologue to Jenny. She is adamant that there is no such beast allowed. I'd say most of my previous books have prologues. But some of that stems from writing in different genres. Same with our discussions over third-limited and third-omniscient point of view.
We're doing a lot of conferences this year. Five times we're doing day long dual workshops at local RWA chapters. That should be interesting.
I fly to Tucson on Thursday to present at the Wrangling with Writing conference. I've been there before and they're a good group of people.
So as I watch the sun set over the low-country (in Jimmy's Buffet's song Prince of Tides based on the book he has a line about watching the sun set over Dafuskie Island-- well that's what I'm looking at) I will ponder the intricacies of writing. And why Moot now has lipstick.
