Become a better writer in 2 minutes.
“And what, you ask, does writing teach us? First and foremost, it reminds us that we are alive and that it is a gift and a privilege, not a right.”
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
Episode 52: Funny Story...My Brother Has Cancer.
This week, Andrea tells a funny story about a not funny at all topic--her brother’s cancer diagnosis. After the story is read, Allison and Andrea discuss how Andrea uses humor to deal with tough subjects. They discuss what it took to get to the why in the story and what edits were made along the way. We hope this process will help writers get published or at least get inspire to write.
Episode 51: It’s Not Possible to Write 52 Bad Stories in a Row.
This week, Andrea tells us why she took a weekly essay challenge, which was inspired by a quote by the author of Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury. He said, “Write a short story every week. It’s not possible to write 52 bad stories in a row.”
After the story is read, Allison + Andrea discuss the piece, what it took to get to the why in the story and what edits were made along the way.
Why, pray tell, is Andrea writing an essay a week? We hope this process will help writers get published or at least get inspired to write.
Coming next week (December 19, 2018)
