Day 2 Plenary Address – Nina Bruhns

Nina Bruhns:  When the going gets tough, Hang Ten

– you need to make sure you torture your characters enough (especially intrigue writers)
– “what is the worst thing that can happen?” – make sure you put that in your story, in every paragraph
– don’t be afraid – it can be really scarey but you have to do it to get anywhere

Don’t follow the trends when you are writing

– write off in the fringe if that is what interests you
– if no-one wants it, then go ahead and self publish
BUT get an editor first, don’t put it out there if it is crap

don’t be easy on yourself, you need to be resilient

Your thoughts and stuff
