Morning Cuppa – 03/01/13 – Brainstorming! Neverwhere! Fix flat scenes!

Happy Friday all! Hope you’re winding down for a relaxing weekend, here are a few brief links, I’ll see you all tomorrow for the some short fiction!

  • Mary Robinette Kowal shares what a brainstorming session looks like, and it contains a lot of spoilers, so if you’re a fan you might want to avoid it. From a writer’s perspective though, it’s a great look inside the mind of a practicing, successful author.
  • The cast for Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere BBC Radio special has been announced. Highlights? James McAvoy, Natalie Dormer, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Christopher Lee. Really just all a bunch of stars.
  • Janice Hardy reposts one from her archives about how to diagnose a scene that feels “flat.” Should you show rather than tell?
