Mannequin Monday – Filling the Void
What do I give myself to when faced with a wide open day? How do I fill the void? A life shift offers opportunity, unexplored space. What will my story be?
Storytelling makes the world go round. I’m reading News of the World.
And again, I offer you another story bite of my own for this week. “The Playlist.”
Mannequin Monday – No Car Chase Without a Driver
No story without a character. This week I talk about the people who inhabit a story. The mannequin itself, before it’s dressed. So many memorable characters in fiction.
And I offer you a short piece inspired by a Rodin sculpture.
Mannequin Monday – Easy for Some
What’s the street credibility of writers who offer advice on the craft of writing? This week published authors guide us in finding the words to drape our bare mannequin. Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Elizabeth George, Natalie Goldberg.
And I offer a chapter, a character study, from a novel I’m working on.
Mannequin Monday – Amateur to the Point of Incompetence
A drug-addicted sex worker in London, bent on vengeance. We cover our blank form this week with moving images. A Blake Lively action thriller. Strong performances and a box office bomb. Mannequin Monday.
And a playful story from my own pen. Not a bomb, I hope. Enjoy.
