March 2016 :: Business

March is #EditingMonth over on Twitter! We’ll be talking about how to edit your story. So far we’ve re-read it and I’ve asked you to consider your theme. We’ll be learning what to ask ourselves about each scene over the next week, and the rest of the month will get into the nitty-gritty of rewriting, getting Comments & Critiques (C&C), and making sure you proofread. It’s a tall order and a lot of work, but it’s definitely worth the trouble!

February was #PlotMonth and we covered how to make sure your story has good pacing and makes logical sense based on your characters’ choices at each stage of the story.

As always, if you have a project coming up that you need edited or written, don’t hesitate to contact me! If you quote MAR2016 in your inquiry, I’ll give you a 10% discount!

Workshop Summary :: February 2016

February was #PlotMonth on Twitter. We talked about how to make sure your plot makes sense (you need to know your characters!) and we’re finishing out the month by talking about pacing.

March is all about editing: how to figure out what changes to make and then steel yourself to actually make them. You can follow along at my Twitter account all month long. As always, one post per day at 9.00 a.m. Saskatchewan time, but I check for replies every night, so if you have questions please ask and I will see them and reply as we go along!

It’s February already! That means it’s #PlotMonth over on Twitter! We’ll be talking about what plot is and how to develop your story, with special attention to different character arcs (sub-plots).

January was #SettingMonth and I apologize for neglecting to post my summary last week. Things got away from me due to the prep for the writing workshop I did on Tuesday at a local school. The workshop was a lot of fun and I think the students got a lot out of it; huge thanks to my fellow NaNoWriMo participants who worked with the students in small groups, and to the vice principal and teacher who invited us!

Happy New Year!

This month on Twitter we’re looking at setting. The tag is #SettingMonth (because why mess with a good thing?) and we’ll be looking at what setting is, how to develop your setting, and all the things that go along with it like mood, how much you describe things, and how much you develop the world you’re writing in. As always, you can check the linked tag or go to my Twitter account (seesidebar)!

Workshop Summary :: December 2015

December was #CharacterMonth on Twitter. We talked about how important it is to really get to know all of your characters — not just your main characters — and ways to do that. We’re on the last few days of areas to explore. Remember to really consider all angles of a topic!

January is all about setting: where your story takes place and how to make it feel real to your reader, even if it’s a fantasy novel. You can follow along at my Twitter account all month long. As always, one post per day at 9.00 a.m. Saskatchewan time, but I check for replies every night, so if you have questions please ask and I will see them and reply as we go along!

Workshop Summary :: October 2015

This month has been all about #PlanningYourStory. We began by figuring out the main events of the story and moved to linking them together. We just finished creating a chart to help us figure out how the plot flows and we’re moving into the last week of outlining, during which we’ll finesse things so we can have a solid base from which to work.

Next month we’ll be focusing on writing the story, following the outline we created this month. If you missed this month, never fear; it’s all there in the linked tag or on my Twitter account, and you can start at the beginning and do it all in a few days if you push yourself!

October 2015 :: Business

If you’ve been watching my Twitter account, you know that September was all about the Elements of Story. October is about Planning Your Story. Yes, this is sort of leading up to NaNoWriMo in November, but the daily tips (which post once a day, at 9.00 a.m. CST) will continue all year, with a different theme each month. It’s not too late to make use of October’s tips, so check it out and get going today!

My son is now seven months old and very mobile, but I am still available for writing and editing projects. Have a look at my portfolio to get an idea of the kinds of services I provide.
