I have a guest post up this week at Write All the Words!, as part of International Women’s Week. It’s about writing, and dialog, and the things watching TV is good for–if you’re a writer, that is–and the things that it doesn’t help with. And then, in time, it gets to be about Call the Midwife.
There are other great IWW posts here, by the way: stuff by authors like Marci Jefferson and Heather Burch and Sally Hepworth. It’s very much worth a look.
Meanwhile, over at the UCLA Writers’ Extension Program, where I am currently teaching Novel Writing II (and will soon be teaching Novel Writing III), applications are now available for the 2015-16 Writers’ Program Scholarship, which covers the cost of three full-length Writers’ Program courses during a one-year period. The deadline to submit is Monday, June 29th, 2015.
