This picture is one I created with Midjourney for Numb: Chapter 1 of my novel Twisted Intentions.
I recently watched the Brandon Sanderson YouTube video “Best Living Fantasy Authors — Ep. 114 of Intentionally Blank.” Brandon and Dan spend some time in a recent heist before moving on to their lists of the top five living fantasy authors. So based on that, I’ve added the following books to my Reading List.
These are the books I plan on reading:
To get my writing off to a good start for my novel “Twisted Intentions,” I re-watched the YouTube video “Lecture #7: Short Stories — With Special Guest Instructor Mary Robinette Kowal.” It’s part of Brandon Sanderson’s 2020 Creative Writing Lectures at BYU. If you write, I highly recommend it.
Mary Robinette Kowal is an award winning author and gives great writing advice. In the video she talks about the MICE Quotient and Try/Fail Cycles. Watch the video and she’ll explain it all to you.
