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!
