Two Posts: One on Ideas, One on Violence in Books
July 23, 2012
The Summer 2012 THIEFTAKER Blog Tour takes me back to familiar ground today. I have two posts up. The first, my usual Monday Magical Words post, can be found at http://magicalwords.net, the group blog on the business and craft of writing fantasy that I maintain with fellow authors Faith Hunter, Misty Massey, Kalayna Price, C.E. Murphy, and A.J. Hartley. The post is called “On Creativity and Writing: Making the Most of Ideas, part I,” and it’s the first post in a series about dealing effectively with new book ideas. The second post can be found at http://www.sfnovelists.com, the group blog on speculative fiction that I maintain along with a group of over one hundred published authors of fantasy and science fiction. It is called “A Father and Writer Looks At Violence In His Books,” and it is about how we decide what’s appropriate for your readers. I hope you enjoy both posts.
