It’s a Rogue Roundup: See what we Rogues discovered, researched, and talked about in November

We began November by organizing the drawers, doing the laundry, and a whole host of other time honored procrastination rituals. Why write when you can productively procrastinate? Tosca Lee tells us in Can’t You Tell I’m Writing?

Next, we took a step outside the box with New York Times bestselling author Lee Goldberg, who went rogue to teach us how to utilize and avoid the confining narratives of classic tropes. Learn from a master in Writing Outside the Box.

Our own Lisa Black then regaled us with a true story that’s stranger than fiction. Every cozy mystery has a small town, a bickering couple, eccentric characters and a great climate. Discover her true-to-life cozy in A Not So Cozy Reality.

Amongst the St. Regis’ famous guests resides this acclaimed author of 43 novels. Do you know who she is? Test your knowledge with Z.J. Czupor‘s monthly installment of On Tour with Dead Writers.

Have you ever felt fully immersed in a story? Writing those novels which disappear the reader into your world is a hard-earned skill. Luckily, we have Chris Goff to teach us about Total Immersion: The Art of Going Deep (Part II). Improve your character writing with Total Immersion.

Now that you’ve got your character down, what about your setting? Jessica Thompson went Rogue to teach our readers how to make your setting do the work for you and leave more unsaid.

We ended November with a trip to the Big Apple, where familiarity only breeds astonishment. S. J. Rozan, a native New Yorker, goes Rogue with a love letter to her hometown titled Why I Heart New York.
