However…Community Authors

Howdy Myst,

There’s been a stretch of re-blogs here at RidicuRyder that have gone on for almost 3 years! The idea has been to put the blog in neutral and just twist the throttle every once in awhile to see if everything has stayed bolted up and there’s still gas in the tank. I started to figure out in 2013 / 2014 that I had a book with RidicuRyder, but very little understanding of how it would get done.

I thought it would take a year or two. I’d clean up the old Blog sections (easier said than done) and finish the story – put a bit of swanky literary structure in and BOOM: BOOK. The Universe, being semi-universal and expansive and shit decided not so fast. It wanted something broad and solid…it turns out when you’re crafting a story…not just cranking off tales of ragged sanity riding a river of delusion and pork… some technique has to go into it (and a lot fewer ellipses, parenthesis, almost no freestyle punctuation and I’ve had to cut way the hell back on run-on sentences too!).

A friend brought me along to a Meetup in 2013 that was lead by Christopher Hawke and Traci Hall from Community Authors. These guys are not only story sharpeners, they can help you settle your gut to bring the smoothest energy out of your writing. Christopher and Traci’s stuff speaks for itself, but I’d like to add something about the passion they have for writers. They’re always encouraging people to express themselves more clearly and tell deeper stories. I’ve watched Christopher and Traci for over 3 years and their talent and dedication is amazing

My original idea was to re-blog until I had the book done. However, I seem to be doing one of those “pre-book posts” because I’d like you to check out the new Craft of Writing video series offered by Community Authors. “However” above, and a few other sections of the course are available on YouTube for any of you to get a free preview of the complete course available through Eclectic stores.

Traci Hall and Christopher Hawke

I’m blown away by how comprehensively and concisely Christopher explains the craft of written storytelling in these tight, easy to follow videos. Had these classes been created in 2015, my book would have been out in 2016. Christopher and Traci’s thousands of hours of working with writers and their 30 plus books comes through in the lessons. This series distills the steps that novices or experienced writers need to navigate precisely through the shallows of their work.

Can you or anyone in your circle write better with Community Authors?

Cloaked & Variable Character(s) who only make sense if read from the beginning - start at the Ride Along Reader's Guide (Nov 2012) then pick up Contraption Attachment Disorder from July 2012. RidicuRyder is a fictional adventure layered over an actual trip. Our Adventurers have strange takes on things like Lisps, Motorcycles, Montreal Steak Spice, Mental Health and The End of the World (Evolving our species just sorta happens by accident). New for 2013 - opinion pieces in between trip stories.

  1. Write happily, friend.

  2. Heylo, it’s good to see you back! On that note, how is the book going?

    • There’s been a lot of two steps forward, three steps back. The back steps were really necessary though. I’ve been doing some public speaking about certain issues related to the book. The additional perspective is helping me wind stuff up before Traci gets it for overview editing and continuity.
