Practical advice and inspiring words from WorldCon 2006

Going through old notes I scrawled on various scraps of paper about writing, I came across some from the LA WorldCon in 2006.  What follows are tips for plotting stories, breaking blocks, and getting trucking:

1.  Come up with major story moments, then put blocks along the way

2.  You don’t need to write sequentially

3.  Use puppets; play with kids

4.  Start with the thing you most want to write about

5.  Don’t think — get emotions

6.  Take a class in something you hate

7.  Learn to trust yourself more

8.  Know your strengths, then skip the other parts

Too bad WorldCon is someplace far next year.
