He shows what they are like by how they act an...

Re: What is your writing weakness? (Let's call this therapy)

My weakness I think is being on the verge of plot points that I emotionally fight to not to go! My writing often suffers for this.As a result. Sadly, the result is that if I finally get around to adding the point, my timing is off, and my reader no longer cares about the point.they are just glad I f...

I shotgun plot, meaning I have a mass of scenes, ideas, set-pieces and conversations and I fire them at a blank sheet - then my job is to find an organic narative that leads through each one. In most cases, these snippets of plot come with a cool charac...

I sense them in the guy jogging through the supermarket... the woman scolding her tolder for trying the get out of the stroller..., or the person I just met for the first time. They come together in my mind as a small spark... an echo of " I would do it this way if I...
