Writers' Tip #5

Jolly well done, everyone!

Slow week on the writing front. The interview is still on, and Leticia's still trying to sell my other manuscripts (as far as I know). And I'm late again, but that's because of all the reading I've been doing for school. Since there's little to write about, time for a Writers' Tip.

But one little tidbit of book-related news; I bought a copy of J.K. Rowling's new book The Casual Vacancy. Can't wait to start reading it, though that probably won't happen until Christmas break. If you've already read it, NO SPOILERS PLEASE!

Ahem, now for tip five.

Write how you want to. And I'm not talking about style (I've talk about that next time), but material and environment. Find those that fit you. J.K. Rowling wrote the first Harry Potter on a little notepad in a cafe in Edinburgh (which I need to visit when I'm over here!). I write on my Apple laptop lying down on my bed in my room. Find your own place to write; it can be anywhere as long as you're able to be progressive and you don't get distracted. Paper and pen or a computer; there are both positive and negative connotations for each, but use whatever you're comfortable with. ALTHOUGH, I highly recommend you keep a typed copy on a computer and saved on a jump drive so you don't risk completely losing your manuscript.

And Weekly (Dis)Likes.

Like 1: Young Justice is airing new episodes again! Can't wait to see what happens. Hopefully Miss Martian and Superboy will get back together! And yes, I'm a proud cartoon junky. You're never too old to be one!

Like 2: My new dress. Bought it for five pounds at one of the many resale shops in the area. It's black and gray stripes with long sleeves, circular pockets, and a hood. I'll wash it with tomorrow's laundry and wear it on Tuesday. :)

Dislike 1: Carl Freeman. I'm sure you're a nice person in person, but dude, you need to learn casual writing. It's a miracle I can understand half of the stuff you say about SF.

Dislike 2: My creative non-fiction essay. Finished the rough draft, but it was harder than I thought it would be. I HATE NONFICTION!!

And, end quote!

"We must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men." -Monsignor, The Boondock Saints

Tata for now,
