As I’ve been telling folks lately, I’m spreading out a bit to try and get some fresh perspectives on writing and the writing community: some of it via Instagram, some of it via Twitter, some of it with exploring Facebook (but mostly for referrals, rather than writing) — links for all other accounts are in the header, if you are interested.

One of the writers I’ve enjoyed getting to know is Anne. I stumbled into her (or she stumbled into me) on Twitter a few weeks back.

She includes explanations and examples of what she’s getting at, which I’ve actually found to be an atypical practice. If I actually get off my duff and revive Gloamfell this weekend, I’ll probably use the linked challenge below to get the ball rolling in the opening scene, as I envision it to be a scene that requires no small amount of suspense in order to work the way I intend for it to work.
Check out her site, tell her I sent you if you try out any of her prompts. Maybe I’ll even comment in the comments section next time I respond to her posts in the comments instead of the contact form I keep using on accident. //eyeroll for the village idiot who adopted a name implying he is carrion//
