Stories have arcs. Characters have arcs. Writers have arcs. We write, we get better at our craft. We read, we get better at our craft. We interact with other writers, we get better at our craft. The Arc of a Writer is a blog about writing. Visit regularly for thoughts, ideas, and information about writing. Whether you are a professional writer or just starting out. Hobby or career. We are all in this together. Welcome.

Writers Should... Write every day...
Use prompts to get yourself writing. Don't edit. Give yourself a set amount of time. 5-15 minutes is fine! Write from your own voice or write from a character. Learn something new about what you are currently working on. Use it in your work or just get yourself writing.Learn New Words... Check for the word of the week
Given the long list of new books, workshops, and trips abroad these writers have created since their interviews, I'd say I've got my motivation.
Check back each week to find out what other writers I've caught up with!

Sometimes we forget authors are people too -- and have big exciting life events,
which aren't about their writing careers.
Here's one of my favorite "life" updates, from author
One of my earliest interviews back in 2010 with New York Times Bestselling Author,
Well, since  I’ve published two more books in the David Sloane series, Murder One and The Conviction. I’ve continued to teach around the country, started my own four day writing seminar, TheNovelintensive.com, and made a trip to Paris for pure fun. I’m excited that my new novel, My Sister’s Grave will be published this November, with a sequel to follow and about two new dates for my seminars as well as an October 2015 seminar in Tuscany, Italy through the Pacific Northwest Writers Association.
