WRITING FROM YOUR WHITE-HOT CENTER
Thanks to Wordswimmer, I found out about a book on writing by one of my favorite authors, Robert Olen Butler: From Where You Dream. I am about three chapters in, and already can say I highly recommend it. A few years back, I had the good fortune to meet Mr. Butler and his wife who is also an excellent writer, Elizabeth Dewberry, author of one of my favorite books ever Many Things Have Happened Since He Died, and at the time, the couple directed me to Mr. Butler's internet project on the creative process, particularly on how to write a short story. The site still exists, here. Today, see what you can learn from Robert Olen Butler and Elizabeth Dewberry (used to be Vaughn).
