Sometimes, as a writer, I feel a bit crazy. How many people keep notebooks in their purse and on their nightstand? How many carry around tidbits of ideas scribbled on napkins? How many people need to write or face death?
Well, apparently, most writers do all that, which I find reassuring.
The other thing most writers do is wonder how others do it. That’s what motivated me to start the How I Write series or, more recently, the Creativity Tips. Apparently, I’m not the only one doing that either. Several authors with far more credentials than me have an interest in helping rookies bloom.
Luanne Rice, the bestselling author of 29 novels who just released the paperback version of Deep Blue Sea for Beginners, is among the writers who want to help us, the unpublished bunch. She recently posted the opening of what promises to become a series of vlog with advice for young writers.
Not only does the video confirm I’m not crazy, wandering around with notebooks, it provides an interesting insight on her writing process.
And it has a whimsical quality that makes it enjoyable and worth sharing. 😉
