Re: Be a Better Writer -- TRAVELOGUE

Hi Jan, I notice how much the entries vary so much in this week's genre. Out of interest, is a travelogue piece that is Christian bent more pleasing to the judges? There were some amazing submissions that were based on ministry trips with a strong message. Will these take the cake over a travelogue ...

It seems customary to show this in brackets right next to the Word, but in a publishable novel, is there a way around this? I want my character to use scripture as dialogue in many places. Is it possible to use subtle ma...

Re: Be a Better Writer -- ACTION/ADVENTURE

Hi Jan, I wasnt sure where to ask this question, so I apologise for going off track: in the action story im contemplating, I'd ideally like to reveal inner dialogue of several characters and wondered if this can be successfully done, eg: Chris realised someone was following, and from the corner of h...

Re: Be a Better Writer -- TRAVELOGUE

Hi Jan, I'm really keen on this genre and itching to get words to paper.what a way to glorify God in describing His incredible creation. I'm wondering how much practical info to put in. Should there be an aspect of a Lonely Planet guidebook in explaining briefly the distances to the location, if 4wd...

Re: Be a Better Writer--MASTERING METER

Hi Jan, I've been doing research on base meter with adherence to this being perfect rhyme (acatalectic) and mixed meter which allows for a certain freedom with adding or removing unstressed syllables (as meter is essentially based on stressed syllables). My question is whether variance allows for tw...

Re: Rating Worksheet (as used by the judges)

Hi Deb, I noticed that at viewing the challenge winners it gives the opportunity to get a rating sheet, which I'm thinking is related to a piece any writer has submitted. When I clicked on this, it said something like it wasn't available. Is this an option still? I'm on gold, so perhaps this is for ...

Hi everyone Thanks for the humor lesson, Jan. It has given me some good options to work with in exploring the different types. I love drama, so am keen to create some strong characters who are funny in themselves, and then give them some situational comedy and word play to work with. My main comedy ...
