Good afternoon fellow writers. I hope that you guys are doing well. I am doing very nicely this fine afternoon!
I have been working on chapter one of my sci-fi novel “A Change in Time”. I had it critiqued yesterday. I need to make sure that I stay in one character’s pov (Point of View) throughout the chapter so as not to confuse the reader. So today I am making the necessary adjustments to achieve that goal. That should not take too long. I have been writing poems for my chapbook. It is usual for me to do this if I develope writer’s block. It helps me quite a bit.
I am about to finish Irwin R. Blackers book “The Elements of Screenwriting”. That book has been helpful to me regarding my own writing. I am going to finsih the book today and then later on use it to help me write my novel, The book is divided into two parts. Part one deals with definitions, conflict, structure, character, exposition and dialogue. Part 2 deals with how a professional script looks like, production considerations, forms and techiniques, discussing the industry or the business of filmmaking along with various different appendices and indexes.
Like I have mentioned before it is quite a good book and I highly recommend it to any author who is just starting out and is not quite sure how to go about writing a novel or for that matter any type of story. Well enough rambling on here! I have to go gor now so until next time…William out!
