Writing:

With a few hours in my local library last night I delved into my current YA story. Set on another planet four friends go on an adventure chasing an intruder and discovering a secret plot in the process. I added 1238 words, which is quite good for a couple of hours uninterrupted writing time. The ‘secret plot’ just came to me as I was writing the narrative. I just love when my Muse takes over and steers me in new directions.

Have you experienced this ‘twist’ on your writing? What changes did it bring about to the final narrative?

The reminder of my evening was spent with a select few at the writing meeting, where we shared our responses to a prompt, discussed publishing smaller stories and the upcoming events. The main two being an author reading on 26th August and Words in the Park on 30th September.

What are your writing plans for this weekend?

Books:

I am enjoying this story cast over a couple of time periods and the countryside of England and Italy. The characters interactions and their possible connections are tantalizingly vague ensuring I turn the page.

The Mermaid Garden

What are you reading at the moment? Care to share your thoughts of review?

I think my next book will be this one – written by a local Edmonton author.

Mind of the Phoenix

Writing tips:

Pay attention to punctuation, especially to the correct use of commas and periods. These two punctuation marks regulate the flow of your thoughts, and they can make your text confusing even if the words are clear.

Don’t sit down in the middle of the woods. If you’re lost in the plot or blocked, retrace your steps to where you went wrong. Then take the other road. And/or change the person. Change the tense. Change the opening page. Margaret Atwood

Description is hard. Remember that all description is an opinion about the world. Find a place to stand. Anne Enright

I just got out of the hospital. I was in a speed reading accident. I hit a bookmark.
