On September 27th, 2005 I decided to launch a place where I could talk about my hobby of writing. It all started with this post. Two years have gone by in the blink of an eye. As I look back on the various incarnations of this site, it’s fun to get a bit nostalgic over what I think are the more memorable bits.
As any reader here knows, I’m fond of structure. For me, most of the creative process, its burps and hiccups, revolve around structure and the role it plays in shaping the overall work. Story DNA was probably my first post focusing on this apsect, and little did I know there would be many more to come.
As I strafed the topic of my fiction, I discussed dystopias, and battled it out between fantasy vs. sci-fi. 2005 was my first time for NaNoWriMo. I had a hunch about geneplore long before my 2006 discovery of the geneplore model.
Of course who could forget my debates with Melly over art vs. entertainment.
Another 2006 revelation was 7 Secrets of Writing Scene by Scene. That was a huge one for me, as the blindly-draft-hundreds-of-pages method has never been anything but failure for me.
2007 brought some finality to my evaluation of writing methods & techniques, along with good habits to help you see the light at the end of the tunnel. It should go without saying that great software always helps.
Thanks for coming along with me on this crazy adventure, and may we have many more!
