Seven Writing Links -- Volume 145

Kind of took a break from writing this week.  After pounding away on my submission for the IWSG Anthology, I came to the conclusion that I wouldn't have it finished by the deadline, so I decided to set everything aside and concentrate on the Story Structure presentation I'll be giving at a local writer's group next Thursday. Maybe next year.  Sigh...

One of the links this week leads to a YouTube video explaining the character types in "The Hero's Journey."  I've embedded it into the post so you can watch it without leaving the blog, but I'm some problems getting it to work right.  If it doesn't work for you, just click on the link instead.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the links!

  1. I'm sorry you're not able to finish your short story in time for the deadline. I wish you all the best with your presentation!

  2. Enjoyed the puppet video. I get a little annoyed about the hero's journey. It's a concept I think every writer should at least be aware of, but I feel like some writers follow it a little too strictly.

  3. Loved the puppet video!!! I'm sorry you're having a tough time with that deadline. Best wishes for all that's ahead!

  4. Frog heroes - funny.
    Sorry you won't make the deadline. We might announce it earlier next year to give people more time.

  5. Sorry you didn't make the deadline. I won't either. Next year! Have a terrific week and thanks for the links. :)

  6. If Joseph Campbell could see that video I'm wondering if he'd be rolling on the floor laughing.

    Sorry about deadline, too. I know how disappointing that can be.

  7. I'm struggling with the deadline too. I wish they had given us more time. :-P
