BLOG BREAK Creative Alchemy

Nick Cross presents his fortnightly selection of must-read blogs.

BB Taylor has more words of wisdom for novice writers with a blog post about what to do once you've finished your manuscript (and the answer isn't to immediately send it out to every agent in the world!)

Sarah Broadley is thinking about the writing process too, as she considers the alchemy that goes into finding the right voice for her story.

Here's a new way to look at your creative life. Alex English blogs all about Lynda Barry's Daily Diary exercise to help you hear, see and remember the world around you.

Mel Green had the chance to participate in a Barnardo’s project called Stories2Connect, helping young disabled people to tell their stories. The resulting tale took an unexpected turn into sci-fi, which you can read (and read all about) in Mel's blog post.

Finally, Zoe Cookson's Madge Eekal Reviews hosts an interview with SCBWI-BI author Alice Hemming, who is celebrating the launch of her latest book. Find out how she juggles her children(!) and all about the weird questions that kids ask her.

No comments:

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
