I received so much good advice on writing from the recent conference I attended, that I figured I should follow some of it! Most experienced writers suggested joining critique groups, writers associations and groups.
This week I joined up with ACT Writers. Almost straight away, I got a groovy newsletter filled with tips, news and upcoming workshops - why haven't I done this sooner? On Sunday I'll be attending a workshop for writing thrillers, so I'll be sure to let you know how that goes.
Other advice I received was to continue doing courses in creative writing - sure thing! I've signed up for a course with the Sydney Writers' Centre: Online Writing Books for Children and Young Adults. This is my first week and I have to write a memory from my childhood, then I have to write the same scene from a different character's point of view. Also as part of the course, I'll be re-reading The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe (on my Kindle!).
Other news for Wagging Tales - our first ever author interview will be coming up in October!
K.M.Weiland from Wordplay will be joining us and talking about her upcoming release: Conquering Writer's Block and Summoning Inspiration. Be sure to come by and check it out!
In the meantime, I have plenty more advice to pass on from the writers conference
