From Michael Hauge's Screenwriting newsletter: "Movie Reality vs. Real Reality". How writers establish credibility in works of fiction.
I saw this article on SheWrites, "Countdown to Publication: Wanted: White Ambassadors to Help Me Cross Over", and knew I would include it in this week's tidbits. Then Chicki Brown sent me the link to this article from author Susan Meyer, "Reading Across the Racial Divide". Bottomline, good story should be good story, no matter who it's about or who wrote it. Sadly, it's not that way in publishing.
Mills & Boon (the sister to Harlequin in the UK) is sponsoring the New Voices contest to find "fresh writing talent". Note, you don't have to live in or be from the UK to write for them.
Gina Holmes of Novel Journey and author of one of my favorite reads this year, Crossing Oceans, has launched an editorial service.
Art Informing Art: What Photography Has to Say About Writing. Love photos, love writing. Put the two together...
There's probably tons more news, but I've been busy, as I said earlier in the week. We won't talk about my blog reading backlog!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Off to grab my oldest from his Orlando basketball camp and I've got some serious writing to do this week in preparation for the conference before the other two return.
Peace & Blessings,
Stay focused. Be deliberate. Believe.
