Inky Dumbbell

Inky Dumbbell is a monthly video series I’ve started hosting to talk about writing and writing craft. Short prompts focus on specific parts of the writing process and provide examples, exercises, and challenges to hone our writing skills.

In Guest Episodes I interview poets, novelists, playwrights and more about the writing lessons that have been most useful to them.

If you subscribe to Inky Dumbbell’s youtube channel, you’ll automatically get updates when new videos are added.

And from me:
1. Creating unique voices
2. Conveying emotion
3. Where do you put the dialogue tags
