Have been getting quite a bit done lately - and I'm fairly pleased with myself! During our ARWA Saturday workshop this month, we had Dwayne Clayden in to speak with us about Poisons. It was incredibly interesting! The best was he had to say "so if you are looking to poison someone...IN YOUR WRITING"...<snicker>
We looked at poison through the ages and it was truly very interesting with what and how they would poison folks. He was an entertaining speaker and we left with a LOT of information.
Looking at my blog I note I haven't blogged since Dad passed, and that was far to long ago. I honestly had no heart to do it, and my writing was not up to par either.
Time to change. New website design, new writer business cards, new determination to finish the few stories I DO have on the go right now.
Seriously, the last few years I have not been writing nearly as much as I wanted to be. Call it writers block, call it laziness, I just had no desire.
Although I have had a fantastic time both sitting on panels at When Words Collide here in Calgary and attending the fabulous workshops both at WWC and at our monthly ARWA meetings and Saturday workshops, I just couldn't get motivated to write.
Well phew!!! I did it!!! I gave my "Building That Climax, Well Before the Climax" workshop on Sexual Tension to the ARWA ladies on Saturday, February 8, 2014. From what they said to me, they liked it! YAY!!! I'm happy some things I said helped some of them with their writing in regard to sexual tension.
Here are some of the key points I used - oh, and did I mention my presentation was peppered with pictures of Antonio Banderos (from Zorro), the newer version of Pride & Prejudice and that FABULOUS scene with Louis and Armand from Interview With The Vampire?
