Re: Jan's Writing Basics #2: Beware of Adjectives and Adverb

Jan limped through her door and kicked off her modest black pumps inside the door. This had been the longest day of her life, and even her eyelids ached. She made a bee-line for the kitchen. What she needed was endorphins, and fast. What better than a frosty soda and chocolate cake to satisfy that n...

Re: Jan's Writing Basics #2: Beware of Adjectives and Adverb

Before I attempt a rewrite, I have a burning question...how did famous and successful writers like Dickens and Austin get by with "loose" writing and extensive descriptions? Is it something to do with our audiences? Maybe in today's fast-paced world we have to be concise in order to catch a reader's...

Thank you. So thoughts can be either italicized or simply written without any special indicators? Thank you!

Re: Be a Better Writer--MEMOIR AND 1ST PERSON NARRATIVE

Slightly over on word-count here, but it's close... :) *************** 105. I peered down at the scale, heart hammering in my chest. “Five more pounds; I can do it.” I exulted in the wave of determination that swept over me. Power. “I control my body, and nobody can stop me.” I stepped off the scale...

Re: Jan's New Writing Lessons--TIGHT WRITING

Doreen kept her eyes glued to her book as the subway clacked through endless stations. A few stops ago a large man had sat next to her and she had been inching away from him in annoyance ever since. As the train entered another tunnel, Doreen frowned and jabbed her finger into her book to mark her p...

I was wondering if it is still possible to order a copy of the Mixed Blessings - Goes Together Like book that was published I believe in 2014? I was not able to find that particular one in the bookstore. Thanks!

Re: Be a Better Writer--CAPITALIZING PRONOUNS FOR GOD

I know this discussion was held months ago, but I just noticed it and wanted to comment. Maybe the desire to capitalize the pronouns for God comes as a carry-over from the Hebrew? If I understand correctly, they were not allowed to say or write the full name of God, instead writing only the consonan...

Re: Be a Better Writer--PARAGRAPHS

Maybe this is a whole different topic deserving of its own lesson - but what about paragraphs in poetry? Some poets seem to just throw their words around in random spacing, paragraphs, indents, stair-stepping letters and such. (Which is one reason I think poetry can be so fun!) But are there any par...

Re: The 2014 Page Turner Contest is Up and Running

Maybe this is a whole different contest, but I had a question about the Xulon 3 part contest. The second one, testimonies, says in red that submissions are no longer being accepted, but I have seen other places that the deadline in 10/31/2014. Can anyone set me straight?
