Re: Thinking About Something
if you write in dialogues, it will be clearer whether you express things the way you intended or not...

I've thought about that a lot.

I discussed doing that with my brother, where he would basically ask questions per an outline format and then ask questions off the answers, and see where it leads.

Re: Thinking About Something
Get in, and stay in, your chair and write. If you want to be a writer, write. Don't talk about it, simply do it. Anything else is simply a masturbatory exercise and you'll toss your nut talking about what you're going to write instead of just writing.

Heminway's goal (despite what some may think of him) was to write simple declarative sentences. He did that well. He knew how to kill his darlings.

I live in NYC and I hear a lot of "theatre" people talking loudly in resturants and coffee shops about their craft. Unfortunately, I see, and hear, them frequently. Their stage has become the resturants and coffee shops they speak loudly in.

Where's your page?

A writer, writes.

I know a writer writes, lol.

As I've said, I have already had some smaller works published. I've got 3 novels that I was working on and set aside that I need to get back to. Hundreds and hundreds of pages of work, which does not include notes or any research work.

Then have at it, Skippy.

In economics there is a term "opportunity cost." Simply, if I choose to do one thing, what other thing won't get done as a result of my choice (I chose to go to the chemist at 10:00 a.m. so I won't be able to see the high-heeled blowsy blonde babe who promised to go down like an anchor on me if I made it to Hoboken with five sugar donuts by 10:00 a.m.). My trip to the chemist cost me a hum job.

You spent how much time on this thread talking about writing instead of writing. Opportunity cost.

Writers write.

Re: Thinking About Something
Kid, I read the thread. You initially sounded to be an earnest guy looking for insight and support. I tried to give you a simple truth about writing. The more I read of the thread, the more I was lead to conclude you were either full of more shit than a Christmas turkey looking to be stroked as a potential writer or you were an idiot.

You keep confirming both conclusions.

And how much writing have you gotten done in the last hour?

~Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Today is a gift, that is why it is called "The Present"

“When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”

I'm already starting to compile the tech information now from my threads on GLP.

Once I get that all into Microsoft Word (it's a TON of stuff), I'll start distilling it all and see where I'm at.

Re: Thinking About Something
I am working on a graphic novel and I can tell you that the best thing for you to do is to make sure that you have blood pumping through your body so take exercise breaks one of the things that Dan Brown did was he hung upside down from the bars and pull ups I mean you can exercise do yoga take some breaks.

Also when you are writing a book or even in my case making a graphic novel always always always have a skeleton for it because that always makes it easier and you won't get as stuck.

Have someone proofread it like maybe somebody on here or one of your friends.

Anyway that's my two cents I'm really excited to work on my book too, good luck to you!
 Quoting: Kendall 16561399


Yes, the energy levels in the body must be high. And, I always create outlines or 'skeletons' when writing anything of length.

Good stuff, and good luck with your graphic novel!
 Quoting: Septenary Man


Thanks! Yes its hard to get started thats the hardest part!!! You just have to find something that will stimulate your dopamine in your brain to keep you going once you start. ;)

OP, As long as I can afford it, I'll be buying whatever you are selling. I've read your blog, I've got quite a few of your posts saved and I'm always intrigued when I see a new post of yours.

Thanks for giving me something else to look forward to!

Re: Thinking About Something
I do not feel it is the time for you. Your tremendous writings are from 'HIM' not you. When it is time 'HE' will sit you down and it will all come out. From start to finish. Whatever the start is and whatever the finish is.
Understand the poem of Wordsworth;
'I wandered lonely as a cloud that floats on high over hills and vales when all AT ONCE, I SAW...........'
That will be the time and the subject!!!
Believe in 'HIM' as 'HE' believes in 'YOU'

How about putting some of your ET experiences on my/our antenna thread because if you look I have been putting some of mine down?
with much LOVE
