Tomoe Gozen - a Review
Tomoe Gozen, written by fantasy author Jessica Amanda Salmonson, takes one on a journey to Naipon, a world that is very similar to medieval Japan.
Dictionaries and Thesauri
Dictionaries and thesauri are reference books that every writer needs to keep close by. A dictionary should be consulted not only to find the meanings of words, but also to check for their correct spelling. A thesaurus is used to find synonyms.
Point of View
Your story's plot is full of action, the characters are outstanding, and the locale is mysterious and exciting. How do you decide which point of view to write it in??
Dealing with Writer's Block
The dictionary defines writer's block as a usually temporary psychological inability to begin or continue work on a piece of writing. Scary thought, huh? For a writer, not being able to write can shatter an ego and become a nightmare.
The Writer's Journal
Do you dream? Do entire novels play themselves out in your imagination each night as you are peacefully, or not so peacefully, slumbering? Perhaps you daydream? Do you lose track of where you are and what is going on because you have been sucked into a world that your mind has created?
The Birth of Venus - a Review
"The Birth of Venus", written by Sarah Dunant, is an historical fiction novel that was recommended to me by my husband. He heard just part of it read over the radio and told me that it sounded like the kind of book I would love. He was right, it is a great novel.
The Night Strangers - a Review
"The Night Strangers" reminded me of a stew that has to cook all day before it attains its full flavor. The spices are added one at a time, then stirred in so that they are evenly distributed. As the stew heats up, the flavors are blended together.
Outlandish Fall Festivals
Some very unusual festivals take place during the fall season. If one of the festivals I talk about in this article catch your interest, maybe you will want to include it in your next story.
Conclusion of Legs
This is the conclusion of "Legs". Hope you enjoy it.
"Legs" is actually a fiction story, not an article. It is appropriate for Halloween and demonstrates how to use creepy crawlies in a story. I hope you enjoy it.
