Mike Landweber is a published fiction writer and associate editor of Potomac Review. Here he continues his rumination on time and that uncertain amount of time it takes to see a work with fresh eyes....I need to have a delay from my brain to the words on the page. Otherwise it comes out gibberish...
Ok, we've done my descriptions of my dream author as well as what I think you, an author, should be able to expect of your editor. After much ado and reflection, it seems silly to me that we haven't done a comparable post for agents. I have worked with many agents, and have seen many different...
How to get out of a writing rut? I’m not talking about a small blip along the way, the kind of thing that can be surmounted with the aid of a cup of good coffee and a quick brainstorming session. I’m talking the serious downer many of us encounter at some point in our creative [...]
Somehow, I completely overlooked any mention of the Chunky in True Confections. And the Chunky was not only a personal childhood favorite, so where's my loyalty? but also is yet another small candy brand (these days it's made by Nestlé) started in the 1930's by an enterprising New York Jew, in this...
Ok, this is strictly for my personal edification here. But we boobs who work in publishing companies always talk about ebooks as if we have any idea what the heck we're talking about, and... most of us don't. I just wanted to collect some data. Which of these best describes your relationship with...
Posted by Victoria Strauss for Writer BewareOf the many issues highlighted by the recent launch of pay-to-publish divisions by two major commercial publishers (Harlequin Enterprises' DellArte Press--nee Harlequin Horizons--and Thomas Nelson's West Bow Press), one of the most interesting, to me, is...
Bigness by Donald Maass What makes a novel feel big? It isn’t a function of length, setting or theme. Some of the smallest manuscripts I’ve read were the longest. War stories and epic sagas don’t necessarily have much to say. Universal themes—love conquers all, for instance—can be familiar and...
This short, short piece starts with a curse and ends with a curse. In between, we get a glimpse into the life of a bitter woman. She's bitter for a good reason. But she'll do what she is supposed to do for the family--for a while. Read the story here at Dogzplot.
I'd known of Koestler's book initially only because it was a constant on the shelf at a bookstore at which I worked. A few years after that, it came up in the top ten of a list of the top one hundred novels ever written, as recommended by critics and professors. I barely knew the work, and most...
Mike Landweber is a great PR associate editor and reader, who has something to say about the tenuous relationship between writer and time:Writers often talk about what is the most important part of writing. Do you start with plot or theme? How about characters? Are those things more important...
