IRA GLASS ON STORYTELLING

WHAT IS A STORY IN ITS PUREST FORM?

Ira Glass of “This American Life” talks about the building blocks of a great story.

NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH

For those of you that write, you’re probably aware that we are now six days into NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Over the course of November’s thirty days, writers across the globe take on the challenge to write a 50,000 word novel and to keep track of their progress via NaNoWriMo.org.

Though I’ve followed the event for several years (and even took on the challenge unofficially outside the month of November,) this is my first year participating in NaNoWriMo. Add me as a friend (jess.smart.smiley in the search bar) so that we can keep tabs on each other’s writing and encourage each other to push toward the 50,000 word finish line!
