Fanart de la Loretta

Am o prietenă, măritată demult în Statele Unite, și care trebuie să aibă deja fete de liceu și generală. Pe vremuri, mi-a citit cărțile în manuscris (atunci erau caiete de 48 file, plus altele cusute pe lângă) și mi-a desenat personajele. Aveam cel puțin încă două astfel de cartonașe, pierdute în mutările succesive – fiindcă vorbim de desene făcute acum 32-34 de ani…

Aceștia nu mai știu cine sunt. Dar cum am în cărți destui cavaleri care nu se tem să scoată în lume două fete, nu una (probabil, una fiindu-le chiar soră sau verișoară)…

Deja nu mai este nevoie de prezentare – Jose și Emilia, din Prietenii Dreptății

(și da, în manuscrisul inițial nu erau garofițe multicolore, parfumate, ca în cântec, ci crizanteme ruginii primite pe geam, fără partitură… numai că am schimbat la prima revizie, că nu se potriveau cu niciun cântec).

Poate fi și aceasta o invitație ca eventualii fani cu talent la transpunerea în imagini (nu am zis talent la desen, că și jocurile cu păpuși pe calculator pot fi de efect, inclusiv așa-zisele chibi) să-mi trimită versiunea lor după personajele preferate din cărțile mele, pe Facebook sau pe e-mail.

5,000 writing prompts

I wasn’t sure how to reblog Bryn Donovan’s  post about writing prompts, so I copied it, for any interested writer. Sorry for what written part transferred wrongly – in edit mode, I see them all right…

Goodbye, writer’s block. 5,000 WRITING PROMPTS is available for pre-order on eBook.

Hi friends! Many of you are familiar with the lists of plot ideas on my blog, such as the following:

50 Fantasy Plot Ideas and Writing Prompts

50 Romance Plot Ideas

50 Mystery Plot Ideas and Writing Prompts

20 Easy Poetry Writing Prompts and Exercises!

100 Prompts for Writing About Yourself
I love coming up with writing prompts and sharing exercises that have worked for me! That’s why I wrote this book that includes master plots, dialogue and character prompts, setting prompts, and many more ways to spark your creativity.

Ending Writer’s Block: the 2-Week Challenge

If it’s been a while since you’ve been in the writing habit, you’re not alone. Most writers go through dry spells! With my new book, I have an easy challenge that could break the spell.

It’s really simple. Every day for two weeks, you choose a writing prompt from the book at random and write about it for fifteen minutes. (Even very busy people can usually do something for fifteen minutes a day.) Write whatever comes to mind, as fast as you can. It doesn’t have to be good. It doesn’t even have to make sense.

At the end of the two weeks, I bet you’ll find that your creative inspiration is back. You’ll be able to create joyfully and prolifically again.

I hope everything’s going well with you! Happy writing!

Love and light,

Bryn
