If you’re a student of the writing game, I’m betting you’ve heard of Jane Friedman. Once the Publisher of Writers Digest Magazine, she is now one of the most respected and oft-quoted voices in the publishing world, with a noted blog on the topic that includes its share of craft focus, as well.
I awoke this morning to a great gift: Ms. Friedman has published an excerpt of my new writing book (see title above) on her blog, and it was picked up on Scoop It for even wider distribution. The slice of narrative she selected focuses on something we’ve kicked around a lot here on Storyfix, the nature and power of CONCEPT relative to story design and execution. There’s a lively little discussion unfolding there, as well.
I hope you’ll check it out… HERE.
I also hope you give the book itself a shot. Click HERE to read the first wave of reviews, and if so moved, pick up your copy.
PS – apologies if yesterday’s post (on my Paris observations) arrived in your inbox with the pictures all catywompass and upside-down. I had them all pointing in the proper direction here on WordPress (if not the spacing, which I never could get right)… but by now it’s no secret that my technical skills are low-rent, and thus I am at a loss to understand or explain what went wrong. Anyhow, I hope you didn’t get a neck cramp twisting sideways to see them straight.
