Morning Ed. It's lovely to

Posted on Fri, 15 Feb 2019

Morning Ed. It's lovely to hear from you again and I know exactly what you're saying. I expect there's a less than pragmatic reason for moving away from English close to centres of government and administration in the EU. The pragmatic reason for...

Thanks insert. It was a tremendous success. Lots of nice poetry. Inspiration for All Quiet On The Western (Weston?) Front. A Blackadder series. Spin-off household technologies that we now take for granted, like the tank. Knitted...

Nice wordsmithying. Betrays

Posted on Sun, 26 Aug 2018

Nice wordsmithying. Betrays that erudition again. Not sure about progress, though. Too passive.

Thanks ice rivers. I'll try.

Posted on Thu, 26 Jul 2018

Thanks ice rivers. I'll try.

I think an action moment is a good place to start with a non-linear telling. The crash. Then people are ready to know the whys and wherefores. The trick is keeping the glued from thereon. Sometimes we get too...

Yes. The quote's his. Ok.

Posted on Wed, 25 Jul 2018

Yes. The quote's his. Ok. Will do. I commented on part 4, I think, about the drafts and maybe looking at getting them more polished ahead of posting them. You'll pick up more readers and feedback.

Hi ice rivers. Contractions

Posted on Fri, 27 Jul 2018

Hi ice rivers. Contractions are just where we reduce (usually auxiliary verbs) from "I would" to "I'd" etc. She is - she's.

In direct speech it sounds more natural as it's how we tend to speak, in narrative writing it's more relaxed and...

I hope not. There have been

Posted on Sat, 28 Jul 2018

I hope not. There have been some superb novel length pieces produced on here. Readers are encouraging but human. I think people drop out and then sometimes drop in again, but there's usually a core who stay with it. It goes without saying that...

Try to cut a little where you

Posted on Wed, 25 Jul 2018

Try to cut a little where you can. Put yourself on a barstool keeping the drinkers mesmerised.

Eg "I told him I wasn't sure" could be reduced to "I wasn't sure" directed straight at the audience. Direct, rather than reported.

Maybe go with informal voice

Posted on Mon, 23 Jul 2018

Maybe go with informal voice / contractions (we'd). Keep the clauses short (when I came to... Maybe just that).

I find the same with series

Posted on Sat, 28 Jul 2018

I find the same with series that run on. As I post new sections, the readership dwindles. I killed my last one fairly early, preferring to go with a short story. I've tried longer pieces in the past. There are options, I suppose. If you can get...
