Writing Tips and Tricks

Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.
- William Faulkner

“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”


― Gary Provost

It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.
- Ernest Hemingway

"Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." – Anton Chekhov

Any man who keeps working is not a failure. He may not be a great writer, but if he applies the old-fashioned virtues of hard, constant labor, he’ll eventually make some kind of career for himself as writer.
- Ray Bradbury

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
- Douglas Adams

I went for years not finishing anything. Because, of course, when you finish something you can be judged.
- Erica Jong



^Not my preferred example. However I can not share that version as it deals with strippers.


Hi there! I'm Normal, or you can call me Stormy! Bet you've never met a person named that before. Well hold onto your britches because that's my real name!

Since age is always changing I'll just say I'm born in '94. Nineteen ninety-four that is!:derpytongue2:

Anything else?


I am on this account quite frequently so feel free to just start chatting. :trixieshiftright:
