Writing For Someone You Know
(Thoughts on Stephen King’s ‘Ideal Reader’ Concept)

A slightly shorter post, this time, as I’m very busy with quite a few projects, some of which are writing and some of which aren’t. But I became inspired to write about a particular topic today - one which I believe everyone should keep in mind when writing, whether fiction or non-fiction, poetry or prose.

How to Exposit correctly

How to Exposit Correctly
(Avoiding Infodumps, 'As you know' and other informational pitfalls)

No, don’t be scared. The title is referring to a writing technique, as much as it sounds like a painful ablution. No, really. The purpose of this post is to take a look at exposition, its value in storytelling, and the right and wrong ways to do it (and yes, 'Exposit' really is a word. I looked it up).

Fluid Dialogue in Prose

Fluid Dialogue in Prose

(A post regarding the art of conversation)


They say that the art of conversation is a dying art form; most of the time, I'm inclined to agree. No one talks to each other anymore. Well, not verbally anyway. These days it's always IM this and SMS that; what happened to opening our pie holes and flapping our gums? It's rather upsetting to see that happen. Just as upsetting as it is to see little dialogue in books, especially fluid prose and stories. But, perhaps even worse than that is bad dialogue.

The Staircase In The Rubble
(A Post Regarding Commitment And Motivation)

Let’s talk about writing.

Writing is difficult. It requires a huge amount of dedication, focus, commitment, patience and stubborn will. It’s the reason that there are far more wannabe writers than there are published authors. Somewhere along the line, we all realise that it just isn’t working.
