Mystery Blogger U’s 2013 theme: "Unified Theory of Writing"

U is for a Unified Theory of Writing

"It's important to know that no matter how obvious and sensible a piece of writing advice might be, there are always going to be circumstances when it won't hold true. Or when there are other, equally as effective ways to tell the story. . .An unmitigated disaster in the hands of one writer may be an unqualified success in the hands of another."

Who is it?  This blogger has some moods, but regardless of those moods always informs the readers.

  1. If it has to do with writing, then it has to be Moody Writing!

    1. Hey, Alex! You're here and you're here first. I'm shocked.

  2. I'm impressed. I always struggled with U when I had to do an A-Z theme. I'm curious to see what you have for X and Z

    1. Fortunately, some other very brilliant people came up with those posts for me. :-)

  3. I have no idea on the blogger, but I agree with their statement. Sometimes wonderful things happen when you break the rules.

  4. Wow, I really overslept this morning. The alarm woke me at 5:30. Too early to beat Alex here, but looks like everybody else slept later too --or were so stumped they didn't leave a comment. But I agree with Alex. With the clue it has to be Mood at Moody Writing. And he often writes about technical aspects of writing.

    I sure wish I could sleep like I did this morning when the week-end is here.

    1. You have exactly 5 more letters to beat Alex to the blog. And the right answer. Good luck.

  5. Advice and writing "rules" can be tricky. They are more like guidelines, I agree.

    1. You know the rules and you break them very well.

  6. I don't know who it is, but I like the way they think. Very insightful.

  9. I don't know the Moody Writing person, but he/she sounds very scientific. The Unified Writing theory sounds like the String theory in physics that's supposed to make sense of everything in the universe. Does the Unified Writing theory make sense of everything in a writer's universe?

    1. We'll have to consult Mooderino on that one, Sherry.

  12. Moody writing. Yep, I peeked at Alex's answer. But I do have catnip, and I'm not afraid to use it. :-)

    Good idea for your 2014 theme, C. Lee. Great way to support your fellow writers. :-)

    1. I think I was too lazy to write 26 "creative" posts myself. But don't tell anybody.

  14. That's Mooderino! He totally rocks, and I read his blog all the time -- he's fabulous when it comes to craft and technique. It's an unusual name though. Kind of reminds me of an old-fashioned nickname, like The Fonz, Jimmy the Schnoz ... and Mooderino.

    1. I wonder where Moody came up with that Mooderino? It has a 50's sound, doesn't it?

      Delete
  15. Well it seems that everyone has guessed it. I knew I had read that somewhere, but couldn't for the life of me figure out where. *shrugs* (I blame it on the lack of sleep.)

    1. We all know at least one of those, right?

  18. Love the unique twist to the A-Z!

  19. I'm going with Moody Writing too!

  20. That was a unique hint. Could only be Moody. :)

  21. No clue, but I love coming to your site not only because it's fun, but because when those books stack up in a row, that nice little noise wakes me up. I need that right now. :-)

    1. Ah, yes. I like those stacking books, too. Makes me think I should be reading or writing.

  23. I don't know Moody, yes I looked lol, but I liked that piece. So true!

  24. Everyone got it, but I also want to say that I love the point being made in the excerpt. That's a great way of explaining things, and I love the use of the extra "U"s. :)

  26. This is the Moody Writer. Mooderino, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm all over the Unified Theory of Writing. I think that could hold true when you compare drafts throughout your own process too. Yikes.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't know this one, either! I think I'm fizzling out toward the end of April...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Mooderino is my first choice. I peeked in a lot last year. Always gave sound advice. And yeah, I'm also surprised at the different takes on a piece of writing one writer can have over another. I've seen this happen in critique groups.

  31. Ah Gary, how did U miss this posting? I think Mr. Alphabet Dude aka Arlee Bird or whatever, should get more sleep. A victim of his own ridiculous challenge. Sweet, sweet irony!

    I have no idea who the mystery person is. I could copy and paste the answer, but nah.

    Okay, cause I'm trying to be as amazing as you, not much chance of that, I shall now visit your posting above this posting.
