Stripping for Fiction

Posted on Friday, December 4, 2015 in Writing links

A major mistake when writing is to look at word count. We want to write a novel, or at least a novella, but that is where we fall prey to bad writing. Let the story tell the story until it’s finished.

Adding a cast to my story

Posted on Friday, September 4, 2015 in Writing

That was fun. I’ve been playing with the option of adding a Cast to my story on Wattpad. Hopefully, it will help any potential readers visualize the characters. At least these are my choices. Maybe others will see the characters differently.

Alexander Skarsgård
Aidan Turner
Francois Arnaut
George Rainsford

A new story and issues with Wattpad

Posted on Tuesday, September 1, 2015 in Writing

I have written a new story in English and I have posted it on my fan fiction site and will also post it on my new Wattpad account. Unfortunately, Wattpad is having issues related to posting drafts, so that will have to wait.

This is an original story, but inspired by a movie.

Wattpad can be a really great site, but the fact that you have to have a cover image makes it so much more difficult. On my own websites, I post stories all the time, as soon as I’ve finished writing and editing/proofreading them. For me, who isn’t very good with graphics and photos, it’s really something that delays publication. That means I have to ask for help, and that depends on someone else having the time and inspiration to make a cover image for me.
