Reaching or Digging? Writer Unboxed Redirect

Puppy Gidget's first trip to the beach, she didn't know whether to reach or dig, so she did both.

I’m delighted to have another essay featured on Writer Unboxed today, and I’d love to have your input (here or there). I’ve recently been thinking about High Concept as it relates to the market versus exploring deep themes in my work. (I’ve been focused on the latter, hopefully not too much to the detriment of the former.) Can you think of favorite novels that would rightfully be called High Concept? I’m curious. Please stop by WU and see what it’s all about.

Sorry, I see how long it’s been since I’ve posted here with any regularity. I’m still focused on my current rewrite. But I expect I’ll have a lot to explore once I reach “The End” of that project. Thanks for sticking with me!

  1. What a great topic. I’ll leave my book thoughts @ WU, but wanted to get more personal here. I’m SO glad you’re hard at it on your rewrites. No, I’ve never read your work, but you have the heart of a writer, Vaughn. That has been clear since day one when we met @ WU. Just trust yourself and the process. Keep going!

    • How the heck did I miss this uplifting bit of kindness yesterday? I guess I was lost in the swirl over at WU. Seems like it was a topic that resonated. Seems a lot of us are digging, and I find that heartening.

      Thanks so much for your encouragement and support, Marcy, and for all you do for writers. You’re an inspiration! Have a great weekend!

    Where’s the link! πŸ˜€ (in my head it sounded like that elderly woman who shouted “where’s the beef?” πŸ˜€


    • Hi Kat! Haven’t had a Clara Peller reference in a while. Which makes it awesome. πŸ˜€ Oh crap – does the link no longer work, or not show up? It’s supposed to be the words, “on Writer Unboxed” in the first sentence.

      Thanks for stopping by. Long time, no see. Hope your summer is swimming along fabulously. πŸ™‚
