L. Ron Hubbard Writing Tips: "Suspense" with Tim Powers

Multiple World Fantasy Award-winner Tim Powers discusses suspense in storytelling. How do Ian Flemming, Dean Koontz, Michael Connelly do it? They don't tell you. Luckily Hubbard did. It's a whole article. You know suspense when you read it. But with this article it helps crystalize with the examples and descriptions, you can see where you fall short and are so half-way to doing it." The essay is available in the free L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Online Workshop. www.writersofthefuture.com/writing-workshop

78. Dustin Panzino discusses surviving as an artist with no conventions

Dustin Panzino won Illustrators of the Future in 2011 when he was 19. Two judges in particular, Cliff Nielsen and Steven Hickman, made an impression on him to move beyond being a gallery artist with his oil paintings. He now survives well through his art as a full time profession. He transitioned from being a traditional oil painter to many other styles, including digital. When the shut down occurred, it took a few weeks to adjust his attitude, which has a lot to do with being successful during the current times. He also discusses the importance of setting goals as an artist and then moving forward and how social media has helped to keep him visible and selling. He discusses the importance of a portfolio for the type of art you want to pursue. He can be found on Instagram: inkwell_illustrations Twitter: @inkwell_ILLust Facebook: @inkwell_illustrations
