The last entry. I've made it all the way to zigzag.
I'd started typing and posting these terms because I couldn't write; I'd hoped revisiting them would help jump-start some inspiration. I can't say it was unsuccessful (I have managed to write a bit, though little related directly to hobbits), but my productivity remains less than it was. Hrm, I'll have to brainstorm other ways to get my mojo back.
I am very pleased, however, that it seems some of you
have found the excerpts from Stern's book helpful.
The following is an excerpt from Part III of the book Making Shapely Fiction
, by Jerome Stern. The first two parts are very much worth reading as well. The book is available in paperback.( Zigzag )
