a couple good links

We interrupt our regularly scheduled broadcast for two neat links.

On Writers in The Storm Blog, Kristen Lamb explains What Star Trek Can Teach Us About Great Writing--the 2009 J.J.Abrams movie. Electric Spec readers and writers should enjoy topics such as

  • Star Trek proved that imperfect characters resonate with audiences.
  • Star Trek perfected showing, not telling.
  • Star Trek employed parsimony.
  • Star Trek showed character via relativity.
  • Star Trek relied on character and story.
  • World-building is something a writer must employ to assist or accentuate the core conflict.
There's lot of good advice here!

To the next! All the best!!
