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:

So what do you do these days in Florida?

Yes and no... I mean I have two cats, but they aren't with me right now, and my family has a cat and a dog

Do you have any critters currently?

Yea, I mean I love the crafty critters. I have mainly been debating over either a ferret or a hedgehog at some point

The smell is comforting to me. They are very high energy though and like to attack toes. And steal wine corks. And knock over cups.

My ferret just walks all over the dogs, literally and figuratively.
