Welcome to the Starving Writers’ Club!
WELCOME to our new blog: “The Starving Writers’ Club”! We love this new site! AND we know you will, too! There is a writer in you and we want to help that writer grow.
The Starving Writers’ Club is a writerly advice and inspiration blog where we keep things light & humorous; but still very informative, up-to-date, and always encouraging. We will cover things like writing technique and craft; artsy-fartsy-ness topics; quotes; how-tos; writing samples from classic writers; and maybe even from you and your neighbor! Why not?
Word of the Week:
“Vapors”: In archaic usage, the vapors is a reference to the treatment of certain mental or physical states, such as hysteria, mania, clinical depression, bipolar disorder, lightheadedness, fainting (from publisher rejections), flush, withdrawal syndrome (because no one wants to celebrate your supreme talent), mood swings, etc. where a sufferer lost mental focus. The term was often applied to the melodramatic behavior of women in centuries past who felt light-headed or “faint”. (parentheses, ours).
‘Don’t let “the vapors” take you down! You ARE a FABULOUS writer. So, get up, dust off your pearls, grab that tumbler of “ambition-on-the-rocks” and kick some ass, Baby!’
