Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

I asked this question on the Southern Porch, so fair's fair - I'm asking it here too: As a matter of curiosity, do any of you step foot out of the PC Rest-Stop, and as a further matter of curiosity, do any of you write for anything other than the Challenge (presuming you do write for the Challenge)?...

Re: Pacific Coast Rest-Stop

Does an in-and-out burger give you diarrhoea? Or vomiting? Or do you just not swallow it? What's in and out about it?

Duh, this machine is going wild doing double posts. Perhaps it thinks I'm going to clean the dust from it. Exciting. :D

I entered a competition in NZ on the same day you guys had your deadline. We don't find out the results until October sometime. The prize is worth $10,000! I'm sure I don't have a chance of winning but it was fun, and now that it's over and I have to wait I'm going to clean the loos, the floors, the...

I'm wondering if you too have entered? No, I didn't, for a variety of reasons. First, I had to cancel my FW500 membership (which I was loath to do, but there was ultimately little choice); second, I've experienced the joys of getting a book published by mainstream media - since I've done it once I ...

Wishing Everyone the Best!

Just sticking my nosey head in to wish all the contestants the very, very best in the Page Turner Writing Contest. For those who have entered, you have done well. It's no mean feat to write a first chapter and a synopsis. I'm dying to know who the winner will be, and will be praying that God's name ...

Deb, can I suggest that there are rules made for submission. For instance, the submission should come with a cover page with the author's name on it but it should not be anywhere else on the manuscript. Standard practise when submitting a manuscript to a publisher is to put a header on each page (to...

I think the only thing I don't have is a concrete hint at a solution. I don't think it needs to be a concrete hint at a solution. I think it needs to be a whiff, otherwise there's no point reading the whole story, is there? (Although I have read some stories where a concrete hint is given and it's ...

Oooh, look! Thanks for the shove, Pat... I just found the source - Writing for Children and Teenagers by Lee Wyndham, chapter 15. The story opening is, according to Wyndham, the first page. Now, don't ask me if it's the first half-page of a printed chapter, or the first page of a single-spaced, 1.5 ...

Aw, Deb, it's all the fumes from the new hair colour that I've been inhaling all morning. I had no idea it would stink so much - nearly needed to wear a mask and protective eyewear. :lol:

What I Must Accomplish in My Story Opening

Above my computer is a little list of guidelines which I plucked from somewhere about what must be achieved in my story opening. I think it came from a book about writing for children... you're welcome to take it or leave it, but the stories I've consistently loved have always managed to do all seve...
