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?
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.
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??
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.
