On Joan Didion 41% through on my Kindle:

In writing workshops, participants are often provided with a "writing prompt", a picture or a trinket that can be used as the catalyst for a story. For Didion, this concept is key.

Stodola is talking about Didion's process of taking something from a newspaper or other source and springboarding into writing. "For example, she read an account where a man was on trial for killing his farm's foreman. Her novel Run River starts with a murder on the banks of a California river."

The book is quite interesting. It talks about the writing lives of  several authors with different styles of work habits and writing. From pantsers to plotters, there is a variety to choose from.

What's your teaser this week? Share it or a link in the comments below so we can check it out. And Happy Reading!
