PASSION: An excerpt from STORY SPARKS by Denise Jaden
By Publicity Admin

Every November, thousands of writers participate in National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, during which they aim to complete a 50,000-word first draft of a novel in 30 days. With this year’s NaNoWriMo quickly approaching, we wanted to share an excerpt from Story Sparks: Finding Your Best Story Ideas and Turning Them into Compelling Fiction by author Denise Jaden as inspiration for those who are participating. Practical and inspiring, Jaden’s approach celebrates the imaginative sparks that make innovations of all kinds possible while pinpointing the precise tools writers need to fan their unique creative flames.

We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt, in which Jaden shares how to cultivate your writing passion. And if you want to take the inspiration further, Jaden is offering a “Daily Inspirations” email for writers fast-drafting a novel during NaNoWriMo this November. Sign up here.

WILD VOICE: WRITING WITH AUTHENTIC EXPRESSION by guest blogger Judy Reeves, author of WILD WOMEN, WILD VOICES
By Samy AbulEla

Every writer has a beautiful, authentic, wild voice. This is where we start early on, using our imagination and our natural wildness to express the stories our creative minds conjure. Then something happens: we’re taught the correct way to make a sentence, we learn the rules of grammar, which, of course, we do need to know, and slowly all that correctness begins to outweigh imagination. We learn what others (teachers, parents, authorities) want to hear and, over time, allow our wild voice to be tamed. We become cautious and self-conscious, and writing doesn’t hold the magic it had once upon a time.
