About this issue

Issue # 29

September/October 2005


Welcome to the 29th issue of Vision.  We have an interesting array of articles about different genres and why writers choose the ones they do.  And we have a wonderful interview with S.L. Viehl who writes in many genres and does well in all of them.

I hope that you find some inspiration in these articles.

Our final issue for the year is about characters  and how we make them come alive in words.  Please consider writing an article about how you create your characters and what inspires you to choose the ones you do.

But remember that I am also interested in any type of writing-related article that you might want to write.  If you are a writer you have ways that you do things that may well help another writer overcome a problem.  I would love to have more articles on the practice of writing and the different ways in which we all work.

Thank you for reading Vision and making it a popular stop among writers.  I look forward to hearing from you.

The theme for the final issue of 2005 is:
(Theme articles are a small part of each issue.  I'm open to any writing-related articles at all times.)

  • November/December #30  Character Creation (Deadline October 10th)
