How This and How That

My friend Gwen Mayo did a super post yesterday at the Florida Chapter of the Historical Novel Society blog on Writing a “Good” Story [link defunct]. Is good. Check it out.

ALSO, I’ve had more than one person tell me, now that my Kickstarter campaign for SAGE is over, that they would have contributed, had they known how Kickstarter worked. So, for the benefit of others, because that’s just how I roll, here is a post on HowStuffWorks about … wait for it … how Kickstarter works.

I did say “more than one person,” so “they” is appropriate, because it’s referring to “more than one” and not “one,” but here is a lovely post explaining why Singular They is, in fact, a correct usage.

Finally, courtesy of Denise Verrico, here is an article on odd book titles. And I thought EEL’S REVERENCE was odd.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Think up odd titles for books without odd titles. Like Jane Eyre: I Must Keep In Good Health and Not Die



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Thanks for this post, Mariann! I shared on my blog too just in case there are those who ‘would have contributed but…’ concerning my Kickstarter!
