I've been listening to the Nerdist Writers Panel's conversation with John Green. http://nerdistwriters.nerdistind.libsynpro.com/john-green Up until now, I've heard of the guy, but never actually read any of his books.
He's a lot more interesting than I thought he would be, and his frank talk about his "process" and how many times he's gone down the wrong track with his writing - and what some of those tracks looked like, have been really cool to hear. The idea that this guy, who is extremely successful at what he does, *still* struggles and has to be pulled off ideas that are going nowhere, it's the kind of thing that should give others hope that if he can do it, they can too!
The Results from Week 3 are in: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/961732.html
I announced that we will be taking a break until Jan 2, 2017 http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/961914.html but give 4 topics for people to work on until then and a Work Room http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/962246.html
Hopefully, by giving this break, we can avoid the mass bye-out that was about to come. Of course, now it will probably will still happen, followed by another one from people wandering off during the break! ;)
