WRITER'S LIFE December, 2012

WRITER'S LIFE
Screen & Stage

Elevator Exposure
You walk onto an elevator and before the doors close in walks Steven Spielberg pushing the button for the 15th floor. You realise you have less than 30 seconds to pitch your excellent script. Would you be ready?
By Kimberley Ann Sparks


WRITER'S LIFE
Poetry

Haiku: Highest Art
Challenge yourself by studying the subtlety of past masters, and don't be intimidated by the high standing that haiku takes in the literary world. Get in touch with your inner Zen master.
By Stan Grimes


WRITER'S LIFE
Fiction

Writing Piffle
During another time, this author looked for inspiration in a daily routine of brown ale or wine, naps, herbal cigarettes, and baths. Nowadays, inspiration comes from other sources, but the drivel may be the same.
By Chris Chapman


WRITER'S LIFE
Nonfiction

The Delusional Is No Longer Marginal
The task of journalists to present complex issues becomes doubly difficult when issues depart from the realm of reason.
By Robert Fripp


WRITER'S LIFE
Screen & Stage

Who Profits?
Hollywood hedge funds? Value of investment based on star meters? What is the film industry coming to? What happened to credibility of imagination?
By J.R. Kambak


WRITER'S LIFE
Poetry

What Am I Doing Wrong?
Consider these four points if your poetry isn't hitting the mark. One of these may be the reason for receiving rejection slips.
By Stan Grimes


WRITER'S LIFE
Fiction

Temptation
Finding it hard to get yourself to actually write something? You had it in mind, but then there was that thing you just had to attend to at once. Chris Chapman can relate.
By Chris Chapman


WRITER'S LIFE
Nonfiction

Part II: Researching Nonfiction
Research is a significant part of any writing project. The nonfiction book demands research of large proportions. In Part II, Carol Adrienne, Ph.D. concludes with a few more elements that can aid your research.
By Carol Adrienne, Ph.D.


WRITER'S LIFE
Screen & Stage

On The (Back) Lot
The reality of show business these days is one of repetition, copy-cat set-ups, and cheap enticements. Don't look now, but they're doing it again.
By J.R. Kambak


WRITER'S LIFE
Poetry

Lyrically Speaking
Identify the message and its orientation. Be precise with your words, and infuse them with rhythm and the intimacy of personal experience.
By Stan Grimes
