December seems to have included a lot of writing. While it has included work on Undead, my fiction has not been the focus. I’ve been working on some research projects, articles, course descriptions, blog posts, and ideas. (I have to write down the ideas or they will consume all of my other energy!) I’ve re-written sections of my LinkedIn profile and I’ve been re-writing lyrics for Christmas Carols.
I’ve also been reading plenty of other writers’ writing about writing… yeah, it gets a little meta around here. Here’s some of the “good stuff” I’ve read recently:
- Managing Energy for Writing — Charlotte Rains Dixon
- The Only Way to Become a Real Writer — Jeff Goins
- Dear Client: A letter from your freelance copywriter — Dean Rieck
- 201 Ways to Arouse Your Creativity — Katie Tallo
Of course I’ve read a few good posts/stories, too; here’s two that stuck out:
Plus I am still reading Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion and Jonathan Strange And Mr Norrell. PHEW!
