Brandon's got news
1) Editing: making stories shine. I'm going to show examples of how to clean up and tighten writing in 2nd/3rd drafts by taking early drafts of my own writing (short stories, novels) and exposing their not so pretty beginnings. But I'm not stopping with my own writing...if anyone would like to submit a portion (about 1 page) of their own writing, I'd be happy to go through it, edit it, and use it for this feature on the blog. You could choose to be named, or request that your name be kept anonymous. For anyone wishing to do this, email your one-page piece of fiction to firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Author Interviews: I'm going to be interviewing both published authors, and unpublished. It's fun to hear how different writers work, their goals, inspirations, and throw a few off-the-wall writing questions at them.
3) I'm going to be giving the blog a huge renovation. I'll keep this a surprise...
4) I've created a separate blog for my novel, American Midnight. My wife is co-piloting the site, and she adds a fresh female perspective.
