Re: Writing out of order or not?

I tried to write linearly, but it didn't work for me. But after I wrote the end (or the 3rd part if you think of 3 part structure) my beginning seemed to just flow.

Re: Great words

My fave came from my 6 yr old son. He was frustrated and said, "I'm discombobulated!"
It was so cute. I had to give him a cupcake and a hug.

Need some Mojo

I had to take a few weeks off to help my husband and now ugh, where do I start again? How do I go back to my MS? I re-read it and still can't find the juice to finish. I still have 4 chapters in the middle to write and the end to clean up. All together, about 15K words. But where? How? I don't feel ...

Re: Valentine's Day and Other Romantic Moments in a Writing Life

I'm fully convinced Thin Mints are pure evil in chocolate coating I just got my 3 boxes of Thin Mints yesterday and already ate a sleeve by the time I got home. They are so delicious. And. I. Just. Can't. Stop. Eating. Them. So, yea you are probably right. They are evil. Evil and delicious. We shou...

Re: Writer's Block: Ignore It?

Maybe try some fan fiction for your favorite novel. The characters are already developed, just give them another plot and see what happens. This should loosen you up a little and hopefully inspire you to power through with your MS.

Re: Borders is bankrupt

As writers, I think we can learn from this. As Americans, we can definitely learn a lesson. Change is inevitable. Its going to happen. You are either going to innovate and move with it, or be stagnant and get left behind. This is the point where even I admit I'm studying the ebook issue and the sel...

Re: Borders is bankrupt

Sierra points out there are jobs in her area, but are these store closings in her area? I know of bus driving jobs, but people have to get training first and then either live out in the area (very rural BFE sort of town) or they have to be willing to commute 60-90 minutes each way in Tulle fog. I k...

Re: Borders is bankrupt

I agree, have a heart. Being jobless, with a family, sucks. But I have to say, I was sad when I first heard the news, but after reading the article, I think its important to identify their fatal mistake: They didn't fully embrace change. For instance, B&N saw the ebooks trend and created the Nook. P...

Re: One Line Pitch

Wow! Thank you both for your feedback. Maybe I need to rework that pitch, I don't want my MS to be misconstrued as a romantic-its-all-about-a-boy-type book. If thats how it came across, I've failed. I was shooting for a thriller-must-read-it. Back to the drawing board. Wait. It was just a take. Bec...

Re: Valentine's Day and Other Romantic Moments in a Writing Life

Wow, that dinner sounds fabulous. You forum writers make me hungry! Your descriptions are too good and then there's also the photos CheekyChock puts up. Goodness! I was just thinking the same thing!

Re: One Line Pitch

As far as conflict, I gleaned life or death and acceptance or rejection are in play. Yes. (And, also, I don't know either) but death and acceptance-or-rejection play as backup intrigue to "the boy" who will trump all that with romantic YA. It's the draw-in card that will get the girls' hearts a-bea...
