#LEARNUARY DAY 18 - How to THINK when you WRITE RIVALS


So we reach Day 18 of #LEARNUARY and things are getting tense! 

How we influence our characters on the page is a MAMMOTH conversation. But it begins by introducing factors that can buffet them, moving them around emotionally and physically. One such group who do this rather wonderfully are the RIVALS.

#LEARNUARY DAY 14 - Writer becomes artist in ONE session? How?! HOW?!?!


Here at Etherington towers, we take #LEARNUARY seriously ... and by that I mean we LOVE sharing our ideas about creativity. This process of improvement is a two-way street and, as a writer, I often find I need to move away from my disciple to gain inspiration to return to the desk with energy and passion. I like drawing, but I only do it for fun, and I have a LOT to learn.

With that in mind, my five-year old boy set us an art challenge: to draw the most ROCK image we could imagine.

My boy: A glam-rock Megatron, playing an electric guitar.
Me: A skeleton playing the drums, sitting atop a flaming skull that's mounted on the front of a jet, which is flying through an electrical storm.

The results can be seen below. We gave this one our all, using a host of #LEARNUARY tips and tricks, and most importantly we had a BLAST!

Enjoy!
