Blogger extraordinaire and all-around wonderful person Jami Gold was telling me about how people are using The Negative Trait Thesaurus in the character creation process. But she did mention a general lack of ideas on how to use this book during the drafting and revision stages. So I’ve addressed that gaping hole in the writing blogosphere with a guest post at her blog. If you’re on the fence about the usefulness of this book or would like some tips on how to utilize it once the story has started flowing, feel free to check it out.
Also, Lisa Hall-Wilson has graciously allowed me to post at The Candid Writer today, where I’ll be talking about pacing. If you don’t know Lisa, do check her out. She’s the complete bomb when it comes to the ins and outs of Facebook.
