Sharing A Blog Post By Donald Maas

What pixie dust are you sprinkling in your manuscript today?  What delightful experience will you give your readers?  

The quote above is from an article written by Donald Maas, president of the Donald Maas Literary Agency and author of many craft books on writing the novel. The quote is actually the conclusion to a wonderful article he posted on a blog yesterday. It all pertains to fiction writing but I think it could easily be applied to those of you who write creative nonfiction, as well.

It was such a delightful article that I'd like to share it with my readers today. You can read it here.  The blog is titled Writer Unboxed--about the craft and business of fiction. 

A successful fiction author shared the article on her facebook page yesterday. Because she seemed so awed by the article, I read it and found myself a happy person after reading it. Lots to think about after finishing it. 

Hope you enjoy the article as much as I did.
