New Tales From Old Yarn

Today we feature Barbara Becc , author of Cinder and Blood, with “How to become a writer when you’ralready kind of old”:

When did you start writing?

Funny story that. I remember writing on an old, mechanical typewriter when I was young, possibly around 12 or 13 years old. My stories where the same kind of stories I played with my Barbie dolls and horses. There where horses that foaled, horses that ran away or got stolen, tournaments and in between all, these young girls in jeans, shirts and boots (do you know how difficult it was to find clothing for Barbie dolls that looked like that?).
The girls took care of everything and in my writing I always made a point of the characters having to go to the bathroom. Apparently it was a major pet peeve of mine that nobody ever had to pee in fiction.

New Author Blog!

Instead of trying to keep my old blog for writing advice at up, I decided to start this new one as a real author blog.

I still have thousands of posts with writing advice reblogged and collected on my tumblr but I’m not going to be able to replicate that kind of resource on the wordpress blog.

I’m not going to keep halfassing it and eventually falling at that blog. None of us have time for that, right? If you’re interested in writing advice, look at my tag page. As I always say when I come across questions: “I have a tag for that!”

I’ll still link to all the projects I’m doing, like the fairytale anthology and the erotica short piece I wrote. And when I’m finally done with designing my plotting workshop, it will go up here too.

But for the most part, this will be the place where I post about the stories I write and publish some fiction. My story Tempting The Dragon will appear here soon.
