For Writers, Read Write Grow Book Club

Read Write Grow Writer’s Book Club: Story Genius

February’s pick for our writer’s book club was Story Genius by Lisa Cron. I really enjoyed it, and I feel like it ties in really well with our March pick which is Save the Cat Writes A Novel by Jessica Brody.

Here are the discussion questions for Story Genius (You can post the answers here in the comments, on your own blog, or even on the post over on Instagram.):

  1. Did you do some/all of the exercises in the book?
  2. If so, which ones did you find most helpful?
  3. Cron views “plotting” and “pantsing” as writing methods and says they don’t work. What are your thoughts about this?
  4. Which part of the book was your favorite or that you found to be most helpful?
  5. Do you have any other thoughts about the book?

I’ll post my answers/review within the next couple of days, and I’ll try to get the questions for Save the Cat up earlier. I was running behind with these questions. Keep an eye on my Instagram stories, as that’s where I’ll post the poll for April’s book pick.

Happy Reading!

Insecure Writer's Support Group Blog Hop

Insecure Writer’s Support Group Blog Hop (Feb. 2020)

This is my second time participating in the Insecure Writer’s Support Group (if you missed the first post, you can check it out here). If you are a fellow writer, they have tons of great resources, so you’ll want to check out their site. And you can follow along with the blog hop here.

February 3 question – Blogging is often more than just sharing stories. It’s often the start of special friendships and relationships. Have you made any friends through the blogosphere?

I have made so many friends through my blog and other social media sites! I have found many supportive writer friends as well as some great writer groups. There are so many it would be hard to name them all, but here are a few of my favorites (some are reading blogs, and some are writing blogs):

L.M. Durand’s Little Book Corner – There is a lot of great bookish content to be found here! πŸ™‚

Fairy Tale Central – This is an awesome site with all things you could possibly want to know about fairy tales, and since I write fairy tale retellings, I use it often.

Tessa Talks Books This is another great book review blog.

The Story Sanctuary – I love all the book reviews on this site, and there is also info about bookish giveaways and contests!

The Geekish Brunette – This is another site with all kinds of bookish content.

Kira Jeanette – This blog has both reading and writing content! πŸ™‚

Mica Scott Cole – This is a great blog for writers with lots of helpful articles on writing!

Ronel the Mythmaker – Ronel particpates in this blog hop as well, and it was through her blog that I found out about the Insecure Writer’s Support Group. Tons of great stuff on her blog. πŸ™‚

Camilla Tracy – Camilla is part of my wonderful writing group!

Stars, Quills, and Crumpled Papers – This is my sister’s blog, so kind of had to include it. πŸ™‚ She has some great articles with lots of writing tips.
