I've been taking a break from writing to catch-up on reading for enjoyment and learning, but most of all not putting pressure on myself...
Trying to get my head around character arcs was giving me a headache until we discussed the topic on #writingchat on Twitter last Wednesday.
On the recommendation of several writers, I bought Save the Cat Writes a Novel by Jessica Brody.
I'm working my way through it and it's helping put some sense of proportion on the novel's current state.
Though I've been a little down the last few days, I've assorted writing events coming up this week and next. It's good to go out and meet other writers.
I'm especially looking forward to attending a book launch in Leicester in a fortnight, for Rosemary J Kind's latest novel, Unequal by Birth. Having known her online for many years we've never met- she lives in North Yorkshire, so it will be wonderful to say hello in person and support her launch.
Do you remember me mentioning the #SelfPubCon2019 sessions put together by
|Vine Leaves Press|
Well, the Vine Leaves Press session about Video Marketing to Sell Your Books, ran a giveaway for their notebooks.
A few weeks ago
This is the one I chose (on the right) in the paperback form - they have a hardback version of each design too...
I received it at the weekend. Lovely isn't it?
Now I just need to decide what to write in it...
