Secondly, and continuing with my theme of looking back from last week, my current Chandler's Ford Today post looks at how personal reviews (so common at this time of year) can be really useful to writers for character and story generation. Reviews like this can also be used in non-fiction writing.
Thirdly, my monthly blog for the Association of Christian Writers' page, More than Writers, looks at Christmas favourites and how Christmas starts for me. It isn't with Black Friday!
So what are your writing/reading/both plans for 2018? I hope to enter more flash fiction competitions and read more. I would like my characters to develop more in the next year too. How? By perhaps resonating more with readers. By my bringing in a depth to them that perhaps I haven't done before. This isn't necessarily done with more words. Flash fiction is the ultimate in the less is more syndrome for writing. It is picking stronger words that convey more meaning which will help me develop depth of character more.
