Mid-Week Notes

One quick thing this week:

  1. Even if we’re not able to travel, we might still be able to stage our own mini writing retreats at home. Essential to this experience is a set of books to have on hand for inspiration. Creative writing guru Heather Sellers recommends in Chapter after Chapter that you choose three books like the one you want to write and three craft books. I’m using Nikki Grimes’s Ordinary Hazards, a memoir in verse, and Elizabeth George’s new novel-writing craft book, Mastering the Process: From Idea to Novel, as my inspiration as I write my YA contemporary novel in verse. Any other suggestions?

Be safe, wherever you are.
