Whatever that is on the wall,
can I have one;please?
Today, I spent the times between the two day jobs writing.
No matter how tight time is, I have to write each day. It’s like when someone is talking about bugs, headlice or “cooties” – just the thought of them makes me itchy.
During my blog and website reading time, I went to visit Darren Shan’s Writing Tips section.
Despite being the first MG writer who made me react like a stereo-typical-teacher-of-ten-year-olds - all wide-eyed and wow-really? For kids? (There’s bite in them-there books) - I had NEVER (*rained on by a cloud of shame) been over to read Darren Shan's website.
There is so much useful stuff over there!
Write Tip #2
For words of wisdom AKA Write Tip #2 these are the thoughts of Darren Shan:
“One of the key rules of writing is that you don’t have to tell your readers EVERYTHING. You don’t want to leave too many blank holes in the narrative, of course, but you don’t have to cover every last tiny crack either. The flow of the story should always be your utmost concern. If you can fit all the “facts” in around that—fine. If you can’t, don’t worry too much about it. Pick the most pertinent details and explain them comprehensively—leave the more minor inessentials to the eagle-eyed fans to pick over and ask questions about. There’s nothing wrong with a bit of mystery!!!”
DO YOU KNOW OF ANY OTHER AUTHORS' WEBSITES THAT ARE FULL OF USEFUL TIPS ABOUT WRITING?
