Final 2012 Creative Writing Lecture + Updates
There’s a new ALCATRAZ VERSUS THE EVIL LIBRARIANS annotation on the site. There are only three left after this one, which mentions that the end of a book is the best and worst part, among other things. My assistant has also uploaded another Twitter posts archive.
Two more Writing Excuses podcast episodes are up. The first covers what we call the problem of originality: Is it possible to be too original? Do we overvalue originality? Then the second episode is another one of our “project in depth” episodes; this time we cover Mary Robinette Kowal’s latest novel, Glamour in Glass. (Earlier we did the same thing with my novel The Way of Kings and Howard’s graphic novel volume Force Multiplication.)
Scott Ashton uploaded my final creative writing class lecture of this year. This one mostly covers revision, plus touching on a few other topics.
