NaNoWriMo: 11/5 The First Draft is for You!

“The first draft is for you. Subsequent drafts are for everybody else. So, write this one the way you want to. Do what thou wilt. Be selfish. Grab at the story with greedy paws.”


~~ 11.5.14 ~~

These are the words of Chuck Wendig who describes himself and his blog as follows: Chuck Wendig is a novelist, screenwriter, and game designer. This is his blog. He talks a lot about writing. And food. And the madness of toddlers. He uses lots of naughty language. NSFW. Probably NSFL. Be advised.

He calls his blog ‘terrible minds’. I love seeing that pop up in email notices. He’s really not terrible, he’s brilliant and eminently constructive, but has a unique way of expressing his thoughts – biting, hyperbolic, profane, creatively atrocious, sometimes silly, but always entertaining and useful.

If you are looking for an encouraging community,  writerly advice, and fun-filled exercises, stop by terrible minds.

For the most part, this blog is about reading and writing m/m romances, but there are a few personal reflections, some writerly information, and a bit of writing practice. Thank you for stopping by.
