Writing Knowledge from Down Under…


I wonder if there are a few readers who saw the title of this post and thought, “Oh, wow! Alex is going to talk about getting help for our writing from the subconscious.”

Actually, I’m not gonna do that…

But, really-actually, I’ve done that before here and will probably do it again.

And, really-truly-actually, one of the links in this post is to an article that does get close to the subconscious

However, for those who didn’t know, “Down Under” is a physical place that’s also called Australia.

Though, I’m going to share about a particular place on/in the continent/country—the state of Victoria.

My Best Friend happens to be a writer in the Down Under state of Victoria.

And, if it weren’t so late at night where she is, I’d ask her if she recommended a particular WebSite to me or if I just, as we all do, happened upon it

The site is Writers Victoria and that link is their Home page; but, I’m going to first share a few links from their On Writing pages

Here’s an article by Lee Kofman, a Russian-born Israeli-Australian author—My Top 13 Writing Resources—a wonderfully varied list of fantastic stuff.

Next, an article with Margie Lawson, psychotherapist and editor—Deep Editing—where she says, “I analyze how writers capture emotional reactions including body language, dialogue cues, and visceral responses on the page, and teach them how to make them fresh and natural.”

And, an article with Greg Foyster, full-time freelance writer and editor—The Business of Freelancing—for those brave souls who write for cash (not “advances”…).

There are a ton of other articles in their On Writing pages………

Other places of interest on the site:

Writing Advice

Writing Workouts

Short stories, features and poems from their writing community

There’s Way More on the site; but, I’ll let you discover it—especially those of you who either live in Australia or plan to visit :-)
