Good Afternoon Folks.
I hope that yourTuesday afternoon is going well.
Mine is. I have been reading “A Novel Idea” by Eddie JonesI’m about half way through the book, which is actually a guide on writing novels. I’m in thr section where the Author creates consequences for the lead. The guide is about 66 pages long. A bare bones type of guide suited for looking up things in case you need some thing to look up. You can download the book from Amazon.com for your reading pleasure. In fact that is what I have done with several Kindle edition books so that I can train myself.
Now my writing goals for today is…
1. Post to this blog…(Being
2. Do some character details.
3. Brainstorm regarding the sci-fi novel and the How To B4. Write some poetry for the chapbook. 5. Check out Alayne Kaye Christians WordPress site to see the latest submission guidelines foe children’s writing contests. I’m glad that I found Alayne’s site again so I can submit more work. That would be really nice to start children’s stories again. In fact I will start on that tonightI think I will check Necone Ebooks as well to see what this month’s contest will be.
So on that note I will see you later! So until next time… William out!
Good midday to you guys! I hope that yourTuesdayy is going well! Yesterday I finished Lee Chikd’s novel “Killing Floor”. At 536 pages the novel is quite sizeable. I highly recommend it, not for the entertainment purposes, but for the educational purpose as well.
By that I mean Lee Chikd is a master of mixing character details, setting detaiks, and describing object hair may be used,, all the while not disturbing the flow of the story. And do you kmow what is a nice feature of Kindle Direct Publishing?
If you’re near the end of a novel and you bookmark where you are at, Amazob will offer you a free sample (Chapter) of another novel thatphas been written by the current Author that you’re reading from. A nice marketing tool by Amazon.
I am studying “How To Weite a Novel’ by Nathan Nransford. So far so good. His book is rather unique in so far as it is not devided into chapters, but it is devided into “rules’. Each rule for the most part is fairly short. I same some of them because there are few that are longer. So far it seems to be agood oth novels and non-d book and I will be using that along with “Rock Your Plott” by Cathy Yardly. In fact I have several books whose topics are writing fiction and nob-fiction.
So I will will be busy on reading and studying side, using the pointers given in these books to help improve my writind. In fact I will go over Lee Child’s book to study how he introduced and described each charxter, described th setting and objects being used without slowing the Stort down. He used the Firdt person viewpoint (jack Reacher, the protagonist) throughout the story. In any case I will practice what they used in my novel bad non- fiction book.
I started to do my my first draft 8 plot point outline last night. (I do a lot of my writing at night when it is quiet. I put together somer character details together as well. That will also be my goals for tonight, as well doing the story synopsis, doing more character details, brainstorming ang what not. You see I lost all of that when I lost the app. Oh well thar Iis life in the big city. You keep on going on.
So I had enter keep on cracking on! So until next time…William out!
Leonard Nimoy who played the Iconic Mr. Spock from the original series to the cameo appearance in the last movie, has died. He was 83 years old. He will be sorely missed… Until next timr… William out!
I am sorry I’ve not written in a while. The reason being is I could not find the original app I was using to write my story Well no more! I found that app and I am writing again! Of course all the stuff I did before, is gone. But I don’t care. In writing the writer does throw out a lot of stuff and I’m no different. The important thing I’d I’m writing again. Woohoo!
My family was good enough to get mr a kingle HD Fire for Christmas and I have been using ever since for entertainment and educational purposes. The Author Willian Bernhardt gas several good books of which Idownloaded 2 of them. They are…creating Character, Bringing Your Dtory To Kife and Perfecting Plot, Charting Thr Hero’s Journey.
Both are really good books and I highly recommend them. You can download them yo your Kingle from Amazon. I also gotKee Chikd’s “killing Floor” from Amazon. That book is really good too! Lee Child is a very good Author.
So now that I am back in yje hunt again, I have doing character detail sheets, first draft outlinrs, story premises and work on my “how to” book. It feels great to be back in the saddle again.
I am not sure if the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories is going to be done this year. I hope it will be. It is fun to do and a great opportunity for an un published writer. I will check out Necon Ebooks tonight to see what is going on there. I will be looking up othrt things as well. So until next time…William out!
I hope the Ganesh is Goimg to br close. I have no favorites as thr Dolphins are not in it. I have been reading William Bernhardt’d book”Creating Character: Bringing Your Story to Life.”
I finally found a good definition of the Inciting Incidemt. Which is it is an event that completely turns the protagonist’s life completely upside down and sets him or her off on his or her quest to achieve the story goal.
Mr. Bernhardt’d book is quire good. I recommend it! Now on to the game! So until next time…William out!
I hope you guys had a great holiday! I sure did! I spent it at the house! The psst few dayscI have been reading Rik Frrny’s book “”Weiting Books For Fun, Fun, Fame and Fortune!” It basically is a “how to book” on how to write how to books.
It is a good read and I highly recommend it. It is a guideline on how to make these types of books while you are waiting for that big contract from thar big publisher. At least you could get some in ome coming in until that magical moment comes in!
I plan on using that book to make my own ” how to book”. That is the current plan now. That and the rehab I am undergoing to strengthen my LEDs. Never found out what caused the nerve damage p, but hopefully the rehab will fix things.
Please bear with me. If you find spelling errors. With my vision being the,way it is, I’m sure there are some. I have difficulty proof reading…Well I have to go now. So until next time … William out!
I hope that your afternoon is going well! Mine is going Ok. U have since moved to m sister’s house so they can watch me better. I fell a couple of times in my old place so as a precaution I was moved here.
I lost all my story files while updating the iPad. Oh well such is life. I lost the app I used to write the story as well. That’s Ok though I will krrp plugging on.
