Nora Profit, the writing coach from The Writing Loft, presented at Sisters in Crime (Capital Crimes Chapter) today. She gave us a crash course in the most common writing mistakes that beginners make. You can see by the photo that I captured the "glare". I also related well to her advice, enough to buy her book.
Even though I am focused on travel writing now, I find the community of Sisters in Crime to be inspiring. I always come away with writing ideas and the desire to write. It is also informative, whether it is tips on craft, or publishing. Plus it is fun to ask what people are working on and to share what I am doing.
