Story as meme, to create change... is something that Mark Chadbourn is interested in.
William defines genre. This is really excellent -- what a great spot of "finding" that I'm having. But it does come down sometimes to knowing cool articulate people, and/or expecting to find 'em. Or as a friend of Steve's said, paraphrased: Why shouldn't he write about witty intelligent people? That's who he knows!
I have neglected keeping up with Moonie lately. She hasn't failed me -- Moonie's links:
- A reprint through self-pub: The Silk Road.
- Literary ennui, or Our Boredom, Ourselves, at the NY Times; can you get through it?
- Anomie, a shot in the arm, or... 2009's Write Your A** Off Day -- found belatedly in my case, sorry! -- which Moonie instituted this year in early Feb.
- Aprilynne on why you should not abandon Your Idea [past the artwork].
- Starting with Moonie's own preface, and thence to Marie Mockett's essay about why debut writers deserve a chance.
- And Dadrat explains the basics of query letters to Moonie; so cool! Make sure to peek in the comments.
I think that's much food for thought, eh?
Particularly when I had half a night's insomnia... don't worry, I only spent about an hour or so, wandering through Moonie's links [and 31 of her own posts, sigh]. Happy March to you.
