I haven’t done one of these in a couple months, so I figured it was time to throw another writing update at y’all!
I’m so excited that my first review of the year is on Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. This is the second time I’ve read through Shadow and Bone – I’m rereading it in preparation for the Netflix show coming out later this year! *SQUEE*
Today I wanted to discuss a widely controversial topic in the writing world — basing fictional characters off of people you know. While at first glance writers (and even readers!) may think that it shouldn’t be that big of a deal, there are definitely some cons to this method of characterization that writers should be aware about…
There are a ton of new faces around here, so I wanted to take an opportunity to reintroduce myself, answer a few questions I got via social media, and give a general life update since I haven’t done one of those on here in awhile.
