Tuesday News

April is TV Month! It’s been a long time since we’ve seen new episodes of our favorite shows, so April is feeling like fall premiere season all over again. Here’s what I’ll be watching:

Men in Trees — Wednesdays (currently airing new episodes)

NUMB3RS — Friday,April 4 (6 new episodes)

Samantha Who? — Monday, April 7 (6 new episodes)

30 Rock — Thursday, April 10 (5 new episodes)

The Office — Thursday,April 10 (6 new episodes)

Brothers and Sisters — Sunday, April 20 (possibly 6 new episodes)

Gossip Girl — Monday, April 21 (5 or 6 new episodes; note the new night)

Grey's Anatomy — Thursday, April 24 (not sure, but there should be 4 or 5 new episodes)

For the writers out there, April is conflict month with The Wet Noodle Posse. On April 8 I'll be blogging about characters' goals, motivation and conflict, and about writing GMC statements for our characters. But it gets better!

"Along with the award-winning Wet Noodle Posse authors, we have a star-studded
line-up of guest bloggers, including bestselling authors Jo Beverley (whose new
book, A Lady's Secret, is out today!), Susan Gable, Anna Campbell, Tawny Weber,
and Christie Kelley. You won't want to miss a single day! We will be giving away
a signed copy of a Jo Beverley novel on the 24th to a lucky participant, but you
must comment to enter. So please plan to join us all month long and bring your
questions and comments to our knowledgeable group of writers."
The Posse hopes you'll join us and our guests this month for lively discussions about conflict and the chance to win some great prizes!

Talk to you later.

I've been thinking about conflict lately – how hard I try to avoid it in my life and how weird it is to let that habit spill into my writing.
Because, as good writers keep telling me, there's no story without conflict of some sort. So I'm looking for new ways to introduce it to my work while keeping it firmly out of my real life!

Is that a conflict? Hm.

Yeah for TV! I want my Moonlight back. I love those vampires.

Very much looking forward to your post, Lee. WNP will get tired of me haunting them...:)

Rachel, you sound conflicted about conflict!

When I started writing fiction, learning to develop strong internal and external conflict for my characters was the the most difficult concept to master, and it's one I still wrestle with.

Gillian, I promise the Posse will never get tired of you!

Is Moonlight the show that stars Jason Dohring? I loved him in Veronica Mars!
