Author intrusion is something we fiction writers should strive to avoid. Just like other writing taboos, intruding on our stories can ruin a perfectly good book, by yanking our readers right out of the engaging world we worked so hard to create.
What is author intrusion exactly?
The answer depends on who you ask.
IWSG is the
brainchild of Alex J. Cavanaugh. It's a monthly bloghop that offers a
safe haven for writers to express their feelings and concerns without
fear of appearing foolish or weak. It's also a venue for offering
support, both in the form of comments and positive posts. Writers of all kinds are welcome. We 'meet' the
first Wednesday of every month. If you're interested in learning more,
click on the link above. And don't be intimidated by the size of the
group. We're not expected to visit everyone on the list.
I am incredibly honored that Alex asked me to co-host this month.
