No two writers work the same way, and everyone has to find their own path. So… write. Write a lot. Build a world and explore it. Create characters and break their hearts. Take risks, and don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Experiment. All the methodology — whether to outline in advance or wing it, write in a linear fashion or skip around, follow a rigid schedule or go with the flow of inspiration, edit as you write or worry about it later — emerges with experience. As you write, you’ll discover what works for you.(less)

David Wooddell There will be a wonderful masque ball to celebrate Jacqueline Carey and the Longest Night on December 16, 2017 near Harrisburg, PA. I attended the ball last December, with my wife, and had a fun time. Ms. Carey is a delight to meet - she will be at the Longest Night Masque this year, again. I urge all who enjoy her work, and would like to meet her, to sign up for this very fun costume event. Proceeds to help a charity Petapalooza! http://www.thelongestnightmasque.com
