Published about 2 months ago • 1 min read

Hi all,

Today's issue will be a short one.

The first item on the line is my most recent article, Find the Balance: Showing vs. Telling in Writing Dialogue, which has been published in partnership with the Campfire Learn blog! Campfire is a tool for writers and storytellers; check it out if you're a fellow writer!

This is my first guest post and I am proud and grateful to the Campfire team for partnering with me on it.

The second piece of news is that the Fantasy name generator I previewed in Fantasy Sunday a few weeks ago has been released! Check it out here.

The tool has been released in pilot mode, and a few adjustments will be made to it in the coming week, but please reach out if you have any ideas for improving it, or for any other tools you might find useful!

No news other than this. See you in next weeks' issue!
