Fangs Fur & Fey Topic of the Week

If you've ever wondered why I often don't blog on Mondays (yes, I'm sure you've pondered this mystery for hours on end, perhaps speculating with friends over appletinis at the local fern bar), it's because that's the day I post the Topic of the Week over at Fangs Fur & Fey.

Each Monday I present a question on a writing topic--sometimes urban fantasy-related, but usually more general. Then we discuss! Both Members (published UF authors) and Watchers (fans and aspiring authors) are encouraged to participate. Anyone can submit a Topic, but when the submission well runs dry, I make up my own. It's a great way to get a lot of people sharing their experiences.

Today's topic is How We Begin, what gives us the spark that makes us start writing a new project. Titles? Characters? Story? Scene?

Here are all the Topics of the Week in one place.

Anyone can be an official Watcher in the FFF community. All you need is a LiveJournal account (a basic one is free) and an enthusiasm for Urban Fantasy, Contemporary Fantasy or Paranormal Romance.

And just to read the blog? You don't need nothin'! Here's a list of the fabulous FFF authors, many of whom can be found commenting there every week.

It's the place to be, so stop on by!

I might have to stop and look in on you all. Add so more 'trouble' to the lot. :))
