Video: “On Craft” #2

I recently filmed another short craft video as part of my involvement with the South Gate Creative Writing School here in Denmark (link). In this video, I talk briefly about how I (attempt to!) structure my writing throughout my daily life. For the final version of the video in which other authors discuss the same, check out the school’s youtube here.

Here I talk about two ways that I (attempt to!!) structure my writing in my daily life:
1) Create goals for one week at a time (not days!), so the deadlines are flexible within the week
2) Pitch/mentorship events and programs on twitter as way of imposing deadlines on myself

Video: “On Craft” #1

I recently filmed a video as part of my involvement with the South Gate Creative Writing School here in Denmark (link). In the video, I talk briefly about writing pitfalls, and I figured I’d share the full, unedited version here in case it might be of interest to anyone else. For the final version, check out the school’s youtube here.

I talk about three pitfalls that I myself am consistently guilty of:
1) Lacking character agency
2) Not setting the scene right
3) Not keeping the emotional dominoes in order
(I’ll thank @Natalie_Crown for teaching me this one!)
