[WRITING] Five writing links: lone genius, imaginary societies, Truman Capote, poetry, NaNoWriMo

  • Back in July, Cody Delistraty wrote about the myth of the “lone genius”. Creators always create in some sort of community.
  • Patricia Wrede writes about the challenges involved in creating an imaginary society for a fiction setting.
  • JSTOR Daily notes how the choices of Truman Capote played a critical role in advancing the “New Journalism”.
  • This article at The Atlantic takes a look at how poetry has enjoyed a remarkable revival, commercially at least, through the online accounts of writers like Rupi Kaur.
  • Beth Skwarecki at Lifehacker shares tips for writers interested in producing a manuscript during this year’s NaNoWriMo. (I am just blindly going ahead, myself. Wish me luck!)
