Be yourself. Be an actor. Which is it?!

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 00:00:49 +0000

By Milli Thornton Lately I’ve been on a learning curve in my new job as part-time DJ for a local radio station. I can’t help comparing what I’ve been learning about being on the radio to being a writer: the lessons in some areas feel interchangeable. Last week I received some training from a DJ […]

The voice that will assure you you’re a fraud

Mon, 02 Jun 2014 20:53:01 +0000

By Milli Thornton I’M RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of an experience of this nature: the voice that will assure you you’re a fraud. I decided to write about it now, while it’s searing through me, as a way to (once again) remind myself what it is next time it’s happening. About a month ago I […]

Creatively Jazzed

Tue, 13 May 2014 03:22:42 +0000

By Milli Thornton At the Tumblemoose blog I was reading a post called You Can’t Fake Passion. It was already a provocative post, but this part leapt out at me: It’s okay if you are not writing from passion central 24/7. I’d be stiffer than a cast-iron lawn dog if I had to expend that […]

Knowing What You Don’t Want

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 21:05:51 +0000

In my previous post, Making Lemonade from Those Writing Lemons, I wrote about discarding an approach to writing that didn’t suit my temperament. One of our readers was so passionate on the topic she wrote a response worthy of another blog post. Please welcome our guest, Judith Shaw. IT’S EASY TO HAVE the feeling that […]

Making Lemonade from Those Writing Lemons

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 21:24:15 +0000

By Milli Thornton BACK WHEN I WAS writing my first screenplay (Ghost Train), I attended a tele-class about asking carefully targeted questions to structure the genre of your script. I’m a believer in asking questions to help explore my characters and their dilemmas—and the tele-class was being taught by a respected screenwriting teacher—so I was […]

Baby steps to a writing life

Mon, 31 Mar 2014 23:57:03 +0000

By Milli Thornton IT’S NOW March 31 and the puritanical glow of New Year’s Resolutions has long worn off, correct? Or perhaps you never felt it to begin with. Common problem these days: After being buried in enough Information Overload on a daily basis, paralysis sets in and we end up doing . . . […]

On Creativity and Sleep

Mon, 10 Feb 2014 01:11:52 +0000

By guest blogger Charlotte Rains Dixon “To sleep: perchance to dream . . .” — William Shakespeare, Hamlet How’d you sleep last night? Like a baby? Like a dog on a rug? Like the dead? (Any other cliché you can think of, feel free to add it in.) Or did you toss and turn and […]

What makes me a writer?

Thu, 30 Jan 2014 22:36:01 +0000

By guest blogger Camille Benson What makes me a writer? Passion makes me a writer. The passion of hatred! I hate writing. It challenges me. Writing means I have to live up to my own expectations, which is not the way to live a contented life. Writing means I have to be creative when I […]

The Ways We Fraud Ourselves (Especially Writers?!)

Sun, 12 Jan 2014 02:48:01 +0000

By guest blogger Sandra Moore Williams “It’s good to share the shameful secrets of our vast fears of inadequacies. Shared, outed shames aren’t nearly as powerful as secret ones.” — Sandra Moore Williams I’VE FOUND THAT whatever I designate as my make-a-living occupation automatically becomes my paralysis factor. I procrastinate, worry about it, feel inadequate […]

The Fear of Writing doggie has a new pad!

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 17:40:56 +0000

IT ALL STARTED in 1999, when a comment from a friend triggered the birth of Fear of Writing. After I finished writing the book, I commissioned artist Steve Andrus to paint an image for the cover. He came up with a dog having a melt-down with his manuscript. (I wonder what doggie was writing?) The […]
