How many SheWriters have taken the Myers-Briggs personality test at some point?   Do you find that your personality type reflects how you write?  Do you find that your characters tend to fall into…Continue

Who Would Play You – The Ruth Valley Missing Edition

Posted on December 20, 2012 at 12:18pm 0 Comments

I’ve seen authors voice different opinions about having a real person in their head when writing a story. Some do it, some don’t. Some are against it, some for it.

Me?

I find for some characters, it benefits me to have a “voice” in my head. Especially given the amount of dialogue in my stories. If each character has a unique sound in my head – whether that be an actual tone of voice, an accent, or specific mannerisms – their conversations are easier to imagine.

Not every…

Celebrating Daily Writing In November - Let's Meet Up!

Posted on November 1, 2011 at 12:30pm 4 Comments

Hello fellow She Writers!

 

It's November 1st, which for some writers means the beginning of NaNoWriMo, a month of daily writing resulting in 50,000 words by the end of the month.  It's quite an undertaking, one that just might leave me in an exhausted smiling heap by the end of the month.

Friday Inspiration - Giving Back

Posted on September 23, 2011 at 10:23am 3 Comments

I've mentioned on Twitter in the past week an effort among the bloggers in the community to give back . A lot of bloggers get involved in link ups as a way to introduce themselves to others in the blogosphere.

 

Wouldn't it be great if we could channel that effort into helping…

Dear Amber,

Thanks for welcoming me to 'She Writes'. I'm sure I can learn a lot from you and others here.

For the past few months,I have working on the plot of a novel about a nine year old girl who goes missing. But I am just in the beginning stages. I haven't finished writing the first draft yet, so a lot can happen! (I'm more of a 'planer' than a 'pantser.)

Hope I will have something to show in a year's time.

Best wishes,

Sara

Thanks Amber! My apologies ... I just now found these comments! Hanging my head in shame. I love that you're from Winter Garden. Lovely place to raise my son. We've found so many wonderful people here. Where are you now?

Season's Greetings, Amber. Hope your holiday is nice and warm and as festive as you like. I just wanted to also let you know I have your book, and finally emailed my questions to you.

Enjoy! Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Amber,

Thanks for the welcome and links.  When I get a few things checked off my to do list, I'm looking forward to having a good look around.  It's nice reading through the comments and realising I'm in good company when I feel there's not enough of me to go around for all the things I want to do.  Hi to everyone, and we just need to keep at it steadily, not even questioning whether we can get it done or not. We Will!!

Trish xx

It is great to be here!

I am struggling – like most of us – to find time to write.  A very demanding work, a family to take care of and especially a full of energy two-year old are taking up most of my time.  But, I am determined to find time to review my novels one at a time and try to self-publish.

I appreciate all the advice and opinions on this site and I am trying to find out what would work best for me.

Regarding writing, the only thing I am sure about is that it comes naturally to me – it actually flows through me and I find my fingers flying on the keyboard, whenever I get a chance.

Having read some of your posts here, as well and opinions on other sites, I am coming to realize that instead of starting with my first novel, I should go the other way around and start with the last one – since when I was writing it, I already had a lot of practice.

I wish everybody a very joyful and fruitful day, full of love and harmony!
