NF Fest is Here!





The wait is finally over! For the next 29 days, you are going to be spending time as a NF writer. Each day you will do three things:    
 
1. Read the day’s post.
2. Write. Comment on the post ONLY ONCE. We have so many registered that it takes several screens to show them all. If you don’t see your comment, scroll to the bottom and click “show more”. Please do not comment more than once.
 
3. Act. Complete one activity from the NF Fest Activity Grid. (see fourth tab above)

The activities are designed to empower you as a nonfiction writer. 

Tomorrow, Karen Blumenthal and Candace Fleming will kick off NF Fest with a thought-provoking post on “Getting to the Truth”.

The Nonfiction Chicks wish you perseverance, enjoyment, and lots of inspiration.

Get your notebook, pens, keyboard, and coffee cups ready! See you tomorrow!

  5. Having written some biographies in the tradition of Jean Fritz -- no undocumented conversation, I often have an editor comment that they want to see more emotion. I have nothing that tells me that unless I can infer it from the passion or lack of it in the quote itself. How do you deal with that?
