About writing and editing

http://penpaperpad.com

If you see this pop up on your feed, you know it’s time for a #writestuff Google Hangout!

 

Last night was another edition of #writestuff TweetChat. This time, we did a Google Hangout with Maya Goode, Burgess Taylor, and Amy Taskutada. It’s interesting how every time I do a GoogleHangout there’s some type of technical difficulty. Is this just me, or do y’all experience this as well? Regardless, we talked about our writing goals, our experiences in April and how we like to edit our works.

 

Aloha y’all!

Creating a strong character arc #writestuff

Character development is incredibly important within writing a story. You want your characters to be interesting and believable within their world. Their actions have to make sense in their own context, even if the actions are otherworldly or not something anyone with good conscience would do. At this particular #writestuff, we discussed character arcs and how to create strong characters.

#writestuff Google Hangout Q&A

Hey everyone! Tonight we had the #writestuff GoogleHangout. Every couple of months or so, to shake things up, we do a Google Hangout. Not everyone has to participate of course. Plenty of writers do not want to be on video, and I understand completely. Making YouTube videos on a regular basis has cured that phobia for me. (Now the rest of them…work in progress.)

If you’re interested in joining the chat next time, please join the G+ group here. That’s where I will pin a thread to the top asking for volunteers. I ask that anyone who’s coming to show up about 15 mins early or so. That’s to try to clear up any technical issues that inevitably happen and to chat some before the broadcast. If you don’t want to be on camera, but you’d like to watch it live, we tweet the link out once the broadcast is live. The regular #writestuff TweetChat happens simultaneously (#writestuff) so if you have any questions, you can tweet them at us with the hashtag #writestuff.

Tonight we talked about Camp NaNoWriMo, outlining, particular points in writing that are problematic for us and much more! Check it out and thanks for watching.

Just as a reminder, I’m having a GoodReads giveaway each week of April for my poetry collection. The link is over there in the sidebar. Enter to win if you want. No pressure. 

Here’s the hangout in it’s entirety. Enjoy!

Aloha y’all!
