One that changed the author’s mind, their very way of looking at the world.
A great story may change the reader’s life as well.
I’m stealing that opening—and the title—from Dr. John Yeoman over at Writers’ Village. John is re-running one of my recent blog posts and reframing it as a lesson for writers.
I wish I was better at addressing writers’ issues. I might have more subscribers.
Most likely, though, I’ll continue to issue my inscrutable Reece’s pieces and defer to Writers’ Village as the forum for writers looking for mentorship and encouragement.
John has recently launched Story PenPal, which is proving to be a spirited venue for writers to post their fiction and receive feedback from peers and story experts.
I’ll get back on track in a few days with a post titled:
“How to Catch an Idea Virus.”
Or, “The Virus that Ate my Brain.”
Or, I’ll ask Dr. John what he would call it.
