My highlights from: Talking Fresh 2018

Talking Fresh is an annual event hosted by the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild. I try to make it to the event each year, though I can usually only be there for the Saturday discussion sessions. This year was no different; while I missed Friday night’s panel, I was able to take in the talks given by each of this year’s featured writers.

Today, I want to highlight some of what I learned at Talking Fresh 2018. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Wednesday links: Hope for new writers, dual timelines, and questions to ask when writing

There are a lot of books I haven’t recommended here yet, but that I eventually want to get to. One that holds a special place in my heart is Howl’s Moving Castle, by Diana Wynne Jones. That said, I’m not here today to recommend Howl’s Moving Castle; instead, I want to introduce you to another of Jones’ books.

While most of Jones’ books were written primarily for children, she did also publish in the adult realm. One such book, and I believe on of her last, was Reflections. The book contains, as the title implies, reflections on her life and on her writing.
