THE MISSING INK
You're adamant that, one day, you're going to write a novel. Perhaps it's the novel, the one that's been roaming through your neurones for … How long? Really?
So, let me ask you: When is this going happen?
The average novel sits somewhere between 80,000 - 120,000 words. That's a lot. Thinking, dreaming, ruminating, and even researching is NOT going to get it done. This might come as a surprise but … you have to write (or type) the words!
In this blog I'll offer suggestions for getting those words down based on my experience as a writer, as a teacher of creative writing, and as an academic.
You might glean some ideas about:
- Generating ideas - those who want to write a novel, but not quite sure what it will be about;
- Time Management - for those of us who let the rest of life, and more commonly our attitude, too easily sabotage our writing time.
- Finding your own Voice;
- Characterisation - bringing your characters to life;
- Plot and Structure
- Point of View
- General writing ideas and suggestions
So … Join me, and let's get those words on to the page. No more missing ink!
