I spent the weekend attending the Midwest Fiction Writers’ Fall Harvest Workshop in Minneapolis. It was two days filled with concepts like deep editing, anaphora, power words, visceral responses, and other big words. It was good to take a bit of time to step out of writing and look at the process as a whole. I’ll probably use some of the technique and skip others. It’s all about using the ideas that work for you.
Still, the best part of the weekend was making some new friends. You’ll have to check out Christine Columbus‘ work. She writes for Wild Rose Press. If she’s half as talented as she is funny, you’re in for a treat.
