On inspiration, fluffing your lines and polishing turds

Saturday, 17th November, 2012

Some recent blogging of interest by CSFG members (entertaining, too):

Kaaron Warren has been running a series of posts (her own and guests’) called “Refreshing the Wells” on the different ways writers refill their wells of inspiration. Thusfar the list includes: agonising death, mondegreens, talking to strangers, orders for boots, appalling magazines and dog toys. Of course it does.

Chris Andrews posted a con report from GenreCon 2012, including meeting Joe Abercrombie, not drinking beer brewed by people who can’t spell and a personal how-to guide for using pity to get an agent to read your manuscript.

Alan Baxter has posted about the importance to a writer of bloody-minded and unreasoning persistence. Also, polishing turds.
