Weight Loss for Writers

Okay, this post isn’t really about weight loss. But wouldn’t that be cool . . . if I could turn my . . . **ahem** . . .extra pounds into new characters!

My world this week revolves around the “fleshing out” of characters, both fictional, and myself.

It’s hard to believe Day 9 of Robert Lee Brewer’s Platform Challenge has arrived. I’m so busy trying to figure out Twitter and working on my LinkedIn profile (not to mention playing chef, maid, and chauffeur) that I’ve barely had time for my personal projects. This week, I plan on being better organized.

Two helpful tools I recently found for character development:

The Plot Thickens: 8 Ways to Bring Fiction to Life by Noah Lukeman

Another goody is "Character Writer," a computer program by Typing Chimp.

Tools for self-actualization? Here’s a good one: LinkedIn Tips for Writers.

I’m making this short because I need to get to work. I have characters to construct.
