News from Dead Darlings

We are staring down the end of the year, which brings good things (many days off work), bad things (the reckoning of not reaching your resolutions set at the beginning of the year), and things we just aren’t sure about (snow). In September, Dead Darlings dealt with beginnings, middles, endings, and after endings.

In Discovering the Big Easy: Writing What You Might Never Know, Sarah Colwill-Brown addresses a question asked at the very beginning of a writing project—to write what you know or not.

Once the many drafts have been completed and your novel is finally done, it’s ready to be sent into the world. Sharissa Jones in Unpenned: Turning the Novel Loose talks about doing just that and about culottes, because why not?

Louise Miller interviews Stephanie Gayle about writing, life, and the release of her second novel, Idyll Threats.

Once the book is written, published, and has been around for a while, what is an author thinking? Jennie Wood in Your Muse and Your Marketplace: The Self-Interview conducts an interview with herself one year after A Boy Like Me was released. Her second graphic novel, Flutter, Volume II: Don’t Let Me Die Nervous, came out in September.

About the Author

Dead Darlings is devoted to celebrating the novel, from the process of creation through revision, promotion and publication. The authors, alumni from GrubStreet Boston’s Novel Incubator, have gathered to provide support for all novelists: aspiring, developing or successful. Writing is best when it has the support of a community, when novelists share their experiences.
