End of Our Second Year
© 2002, Lazette Gifford
come early this year. We had our
first snow in October -- not unheard of, but still startling.
The trees have changed color, the stray cats have all gotten their winter
coats, and the flocks of birds have sat chattering in my trees at sunrise,
preparing to head farther south to warmer weather.
I like it
here in the US Midwest. I
love the changing of the seasons that mark the years.
I love the cold winter blizzards as much as the hot summer thunderstorms.
I like change.
months I put together a new version of Holly Lisle's Vision: new articles, new
views on writing habits, new ideas to try out.
We've had interesting interviews, and offers of articles from unexpected
with Vision. I have learned about
being an editor, which I find I like far better than I had expected.
I've learned new writing techniques from the articles I've accepted and
edited. It has been a learning
experience all the way around.
will our third year of production bring?
the theme articles for Vision will follow the story creation process from
generating characters to submitting the finished project:
January/February -- Characters
March/April -- World building
May/June -- Plotting &
July/August -- Putting it all
September/October -- Revising
November/December -- Submissions
I hope that
you'll enjoy going through these steps with us, as well as reading all the other
sections of the ezine.
for a great second year!
And good luck with your writing!
