Dilemma: How to see trees from the forest after you have grown them

One thing that comes popping in is how to see are the characters in balance from that moment when the storie introduces them and when the story goes on. Im afraid that Im down grading my characters, maybe its because when the writing goes they come to be more familiar, they have relations to other c...

Re: About sending your work to publisher(s)

Summarize the entire plot, including the ending. The publisher is not reading for enjoyment, they are reading to learn whether your manuscript is a good fit for their market. Depriving them of information that would help that decision is a waste of your time and theirs. They don't care if you use a...

Re: Am I a Writer?

I believe writing stories as a habit, even for yourself, with no intention of ever trying for publication makes you a writer. Being a writer is not something you become by passing a certain milestone, but something you do; writing. Belief in yourself and your work is paramount to good writing habit...

True or False??

I read from somewhere that brains need sugar to work. So question is, is this true or false. When you have good and inventious writing going on, are picking up more candy than normal or are you just living with coffee? For me, good peppermint choclate caramels seems to work. I think? :D Have a nice ...

Re: Book Released!

Wow! Great cover. Looks really appealing to me. Never should though criticize book on its cover but it has to be compelling to stand out and this is just that. Congratulations.

Re: Cliche the writers curse or just ignore it?

"Thirdly, natural dialogue should use cliche as people use them when they speak to one another, that is after all how something comes to become a cliche - feel me? -know what I mean? -see what I'm gettin' at? So, a hard fast rule in some cases might handcuff you." I think you are right.´, ...
