Unfortunately, challenges of writing go beyond writer's block. They include no-line bifocals.

Penguin has unveiled a self-publishing service – which will operate under the aegis of its online writing community Book Country – but questions are being asked about the huge fees they are charging, and the massive royalty cut that they are taking (on top of what retailers such as Amazon charge).

I have a guest post today from a writer who is trying something very different indeed. Most of us are loathe to share our work while it is in progress for the simple reason that the first draft is often quite different from the polished, finished work.

However, one writer is sharing his book as he is writing it, and I invited him along to explain why.

Today, I talk briefly about world-building and PoV. I’ve chosen to write "A Storm Hits Valparaíso" in third-person omniscient, but that's not without it's pitfalls and can lead a writer to subject the reader to info-dumping on a grand scale.

I've also posted an excerpt from my upcoming release to illustrate my point.

Potosí was once the largest - and richest - city in the Americas thanks to a prodigious mine, a "thumb of silver" which produced remarkable amounts over three hundred years.

To the Indians forced to work there, and the eight million of them that perished in its bowels, it was "the mountain that eats men" and a "mouth of hell". Today, the silver is gone, and Potosí is one of the poorest cities in Latin America.

The mine is still going though, and I took a tour there in 2005.
