In celebration of International Women's Day, that was on March 8th, we decided make today's topic all about female characters and asked: "How Do You Write Female Characters?"
When we create our worlds, we have to populate them and having all those details on a host of characters can be a lot to hold in your head. That's why we have character profiles and that's today's topic where we ask: "How Do You Create Character Profiles?"
Despite not being a fan of social media, I do appreciate's its importance and in truth, it has introduced me to some awesome people who I may never have met. But I try and remind myself, that it's a tool! A tool for business, a tool for marketing and the best tools are those used correctly. So today I thought I'd discuss the numbers issue that comes with Social Media.
Today we welcome writer Mark Gelinas Snr to the show to get his personal experience and insights into this week's question, where we ask: "What Is One Thing You Wish You Were Better At As A Writer?"
While we writers might work with words, many of us have a deep love for art - especially artwork that features our characters. It's become common practice amongst writers to get their main characters portraits commissioned to add that extra connection for the reader to really see what we see. So with that in mind, I just HAD to do a shout out for an incredible artist and pimp her work!
I can't believe we are already on episode 50! Where has the time gone? Well, since we have hit another milestone episode so thought we talk about origin stories, namely ours! Today we ask:
"How Did The Merry Writer Start?"
The month of February has come and gone and it's time for me to look back on what I wanted to accomplish and what I actually MANAGED to accomplished as well as setting out March's goals.
