Writing Books Based on Experiences, Observations,
or Traumatic Personal Events.

Musings - July 2007

by Margot Finke

Incorporating what they see or hear from friends, relatives, or complete strangers, is something writers are known to do. Keen observation is an art that writers must develop - it brings a sense of authenticity to their plots and characters. However, this month I want to delve into the art of using remembered events, past experiences, or painful emotional traumas, as character or plot enhancements, or the main thrust of a particular story. Hold onto your computer, mates, this could be a bumpy read!

MUSINGS is regularly hosted by the Purple Crayon

Occasionally, Harold Underdown is swamped with work, so I sometimes have to keep one or two columns here until he has the time to add them to my page on his website.
