Chaos and Good Writing


Do chaos and good writing go together? This is a question we are about to avoid but not entirely.

Welcome to the weekly roundup of the best posts on the Author Buzz UK network.

In case you are wondering, a certain amount of chaos is normal for the creative mind but too much is bad for it. Writers with tidy desks, for example, probably have writers’ block.

Thanet Creative asked us what makes a good writer? And then tried to answer that question.

We wrote about getting a good literary agent. (That was me as well).

John Wooster-Brown (my dad) published a view of one of his paintings. It is called the captain and it is very good.

Hopefully, these roundups will get more interesting and varied as more blogs are added. Right now you can contribute to some of the blogs – doing that will give us more things to write about in the posts like these.
