Wednesday Writers: Knowing What You Write

Today I made a guest appearance over at David McDonald’s ‘Wednesday Writers’ series, where I harped on about one of my pet topics: reading like a writer.

Most of us are compelled to write because we love stories: hearing them narrated, staying up all night reading them, watching them unfold on the big screen. And many of us are driven to write the types of stories that we also enjoy reading, whether it’s speculative fiction, memoir, historical fiction, Literature with a capital ‘L’, romance, mystery, or combinations of any/all of these. Inspired by all of these wonderful narratives, we attempt to invent our own new stories, share our unique voices, create our own styles, and add fresh perspectives to old favourites…

You can read the whole spiel here — and check out the entire series while you’re visiting David’s Ebon Shores!
