ICYMI: Emotional MidPoints, Character Name Tricks, + Princess Bride Party!

Hello! We are still here and blogging! Alas, Jetpack was giving us trouble and not sending emails to our lovely subscribers. So we thought we’d better recap the last two weeks. First…


We’re hosting a Princess Bride Linkup Party! It’s next weekend! Why? Because FUN! And also on September 25th, three decades less a year ago, The Princess Bride opened in theatres, and we felt like celebrating that. So if you want to share your thoughts, feelings or critiques on the book and/or film, write a post (or share one you’ve already written) and join our linkup. For more information and blogging ideas, check out our #PrincessBrideParty FAQ page.

And while Jetpack was being buggy, we published these two posts:

Emotional MidPoint

Heather needed a refresher on a story’s MidPoint from the hero’s point of view, so she republished this useful post. Click here to read the whole thing.


And Robin shared three strategies for making your character names original and entertaining! Click here for the whole post.

So that’s the September recap. Hope to see you guys at the Princess Bride Linkup Party!

    Can. Not. Wait. 🙂 I’ve often said, “It always comes back to The Princess Bride”. There’s so much to write about, hope I can get something done for this!

      We hope so too! 🙂

We love comments and questions.
