Listen up, mortals.
Since Moos seems to have an endless supply of writing craft topics – for me to talk about, mind you – I’m left wondering when exactly I’m supposed to update you on her progress. That is why I took over this blog after all.
So I’m just going to start with the updates here and make you all wait for the writing craft stuff.

Okay mortals, Moos has gotten countless questions about this over the years, so I’m gonna clear things up for you. And no, this isn’t just a recap of the Character Description post I did awhile back. This is completely different. Just read it, okay!
Here’s the truth. Describing stuff is easy. The chair is blue. See? Easy.
Describing stuff well? Now that’s hard. Really hard.

Sorry for missing last week. Okay, no I’m not. I’m a busy muse. I got plot holes to fix, characters to motivate, people to inspire.
Besides, last week was a bit stressful for Moos since her latest TurtleWriters blog post ruffled a few feathers. Her focus was completely shot after that. So I resorted to giving her a shiny new idea and it worked a bit too well. She kind of exploded and now she has a 7 page, chapter by chapter outline, plus ideas for three more books in the series.
It was just a silly idea, Moos! You were supposed to say hi and give it a quick pat. Not kidnap it, give it a mate, and make babies!
(Deep breaths, Ivy. Deep breaths.)
Anyway, I’m back and once again being forced to impart my writerly knowledge unto the masses. Moos doesn’t give me enough chocolate for this.
So, character descriptions. Let’s get right to it. Continue reading “Ivy on Character Description”
(For anyone unfamiliar with Ivy, here’s her introduction and an explanation of these posts.)
I mentioned last week that Moos is launching MoosEditorial soon.
I’m not gonna lie. I thought she’d have given up on it by now. She almost did a few times, actually. Imposter Syndrome is no joke, mortals. And she’s got it for one of the silliest reasons ever. Continue reading “Ivy introduces MoosEditorial (with a little help)”
