The Thursday Three #25

  1. First off, a shameless plug: If you’re looking for a new writing platform like Wattpad, Figment, or FictionPress, Penana may be for you. It allows you to collaborate with other writers on stories, serialize your work online, and enter writing contests. Seems pretty promising!
  2. I came up with another idea for Camp NaNo since I’ve been hitting some snags in my current WiP: write more in my story bible and try to get some worldbuilding/background stuff worked out so that I can proceed and so that things make sense.
  3. I’m reading Donna Tartt’s The Little Friend and finding it fascinating. I enjoy when authors use Mississippi as a setting… reminds me of reading Faulkner in college. I have high hopes for this book because I read The Secret History a few years ago and loved it. Have you read anything by Tartt?

  1. I recently read that, as soon as Terry Pratchett finished writing a book, he started another. Immediately. Minutes later. He felt that anyone who isn’t actually writing a book isn’t a writer. Well, after wrapping up my latest, I retired again. I’m not a writer. So much for any WiP and Camp NaNo. I’ve retired more times than Brett Favre. So, for #2, I would add that you should not emulate me. 🙂

    1. Well, it’s true that if you don’t write, you’re not a writer. You’re just a daydreamer, a chaser of the muse. But I don’t know about not being a writer if you don’t write every single second. By that rule, I’m only a writer on weekends.
