Finding Your Way Into Your Story - WRITERS HELPING WRITERS® I recently avoided a workshop assignment that should have been completed in no more than an hour because I couldn’t find a way into my story. This workshop generates significant, raw material for me. New characters and compelling stories emerge; sentences flow, and everyone contributes imaginative, heart-stuttering stories. It’s a word-feast, and I was strolling along eating it all up, licking my fingers—when it vanished, and I found myself with word-sticky fingers, staring at a blank page. I had characters, an idea, but they were elusive. There exist strategies to help writers overcome a sense of feeling blocked, but that’s not my focus today. Character: Character is a writer’s lodestone, and we enter our stories in various ways through them: what they want, what they’re doing, how they look, what they think, how they feel.

Tor.com The Recommended Fantasy Author List The Recommended Fantasy Author List Contents "I dare not post, but I will wink and hold out mine homepage. It is a simple one, but what though? About the List The list is alphabetic by author. THIS LISTING DOES NOT PRETEND TO LIST EVERY WORK BY EVERY AUTHOR LISTED, nor is it intended to do so. This is NOT a listing of the FAQmaster's personal favorites. Series titles are in bold italics, and titles within the series follow. This listing was created in April 1994, following what seemed like the 900th posting of "what other authors should I read?" This list doesn't contain shared world novels and short story collections, except in those cases where I feel like including them (hey, it's called Editorial Privilege.) The dividing line between fantasy, science fiction, and horror is indistinct and highly subjective. Many people made suggestions and offered aid and comfort in the creation and maintenance of this list. Three cheers for: Anthony Chan Mike Loux Paul Farris & Raj Shah

Project: Start a Commonplace Book Creating a commonplace book can help you keep track of your educational journey. It’s a place to record favorite quotes from the books you read, ideas you have, and questions that arise from your studies. Over time, your commonplace book will turn into a record of who you’ve been and how you’ve changed. You can use it to track the progress you’ve made and reflect on the thoughts that have shaped your life. What is a Commonplace Book? A commonplace book is essentially a scrapbook / compilation of information that the creator deems relevant. Wikipedia puts it this way: “Commonplace books (or commonplaces) were a way to compile knowledge, usually by writing information into books…Such books were essentially books filled with items of every kind: medical recipes, quotes, letters, poems, tables of weights and measures, proverbs, prayers, legal formulas. How Are Modern Commonplace Books Used? You can, of course, put anything you want in a commonplace book. How to Start a Commonplace Book
