Sometimes an author will communicate stuff about the fiction writing craft that, while it isn’t new in concept, is put into language that suddenly clicks on a deeper level, and I can better put it to use.
Wired For Story by Lisa Cron did that for me.
If you’d like a taste of what Lisa has to offer in Wired For Story, check out her post from last week at Writer Unboxed, 2 Ways Your Brain is Wired to Undermine Your Story – And What To Do About It.
She writes about something I’m learning in a big way as I journey through my first content edit experience: just because something is loud and clear in my head, concerning character or plot, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s clear on the page. Or even there at all.
In fact a time or two I managed to convey something very different than what I intended.
Have you read Wired For Story? Did you find it helpful, too?
(I was given a copy of this book and am under no obligation to promote it. I just can’t help myself.)
