Writing Wednesday for the last week in February

Oh my poor, neglected blog!

Lazy link stuff, mostly on writing

Writing Scenes: Cooking at the Right Temperature by Lorin Oberweger (a useful nudge as I trudge through scene after scene asking myself “What exactly is it I’m trying to accomplish here? And are there any more words I could use to describe ‘snow’?”)

The Tyranny of the Word Count by Sally Zigmond (Because word counts tyrannize me.)

Utopian for Beginners: An amateur linguist loses control of the language he invented (A long piece from the New Yorker via @lillithsaintcrow. The very definition of life imitating Borges)

The Nature of Fun: David Foster Wallace on Why Writers Write (The statutory link culled from Brain Pickings)

*Must Try Harder*
