Angela is at Jane Friedman’s blog, sharing the ins and outs of creating a business plan. This was a hugely important endeavor for us; our business plan has been critical in helping us zero in on our goals and stick to them. I had the pleasure of reading Angela’s post beforehand and, believe me, you don’t want to miss it.
As for me, I’m at Jody Hedlund’s site, talking about quirks. You know: Robert Barrone and his chin-touching food ritual; my husband, who cracks open the oven door five minutes before my roast is done so the heat won’t be wasted in winter. Quirks. We’ve all got ’em. Today, I’m sharing some tips on how to use them to reveal your character’s personality. There will also be a giveaway :).
I’m also dropping in on Susan Quinn to discuss the difference between primary and secondary traits for your character and how to effectively show them to the reader.
