There’s this term that I find fascinating. It took 15 years for someone to point out that I didn’t have a clear one. And I’d never known the term for what it is. Gain knowledge of MacGuffins people. Once you do, it’ll be endless. The One Ring, bomb plans, a watch, a person, a piece of artwork, casino money, etc.
So, I’ve found a whole slew of interesting blogs on writing this week and thought I’d share some links.
Check out the Pet Peeves on Parade series going on over at Author! Author!
For a lesson on The Yin and Yang of Adverbs go to Flogging the Quill.
Find out what agents don’t like over at Writer Unboxed.
Look at How to Amp Up Sexual Tension over at Fiction Groupie.
For help on a ton of stuff hie thee to Kay Kenyon’s website called Writing the World. (Not only is she a brilliant author, but she’s a nice lady–which I can say since I met her a couple of weeks ago at Literary Orange–who gives good advice.)
