Dexter Petley shares his views of writing and editing in Time & Motion posted at Write Edit Seek Literary Agent.

Just for NaNoWriMo Players

“Get through a draft as quickly as possible. Hard to know the shape of the thing until you have a draft. Literally, when I wrote the last page of my first draft of “Lincoln’s Melancholy” I thought, Oh, shit, now I get the shape of this. But I had wasted years, literally years, writing and re-writing the first third to first half. The old writer’s rule applies: Have the courage to write badly.” –Joshua Wolf Shenk


If you’re writing SciFi or Fantasy, you need to be checking out the Turkey City Lexicon courtesy of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.

And finally, just for kicks, my favorite spam of the week:

“Precisely the facts we is in research associated with. Should certainly disrupt my personal costs quickly.”

That’s all for this week. Be sure to submit your article for next week’s Carnival of Creativity by Friday at midnight!

      True story: I never wrote more than 2,000 words of fiction until I did NaNo. It was their inducement to joyfully write crap that convinced me to break my self-imposed barrier. I had so much fun doing it, and I learned so much. What a great exercise!
