  1. E.M. FORSTER https://www.aerogrammestudio.com/2013/03/04/e-m-forster-the-difference-between-story-and-plot/
  2. That's true - add Zelazny, Jack Vance, and others. They wrote thought-provoking, lyrical stories which weren't poorly disguised agit-prop, real stories of imagination and humor and wonder.
  3. I write what I'd like to read. Which hardly anyone writes these days.
  4. It dropped into my Inbox: https://prowritingaid.com/en/Payment/Take/1324276
  5. There are loads of free HOWTO videos for Scrivener - I'd poke around a little and see what you can find.
  6. Simple copy & paste or drag and drop. (The easiest may be Import and split.)
  7. Scrivener: "Scrivener (/ˈskrɪvənər/) is a word-processing program and outliner designed for authors.[4] Scrivener provides a management system for documents, notes and metadata. This allows the user to organize notes, concepts, research and whole documents for easy access and reference (documents including rich text, images, PDF, audio, video, web pages, etc.). Scrivener offers templates for screenplays, fiction, and non-fiction manuscripts. After writing a text, the user may export it for final formatting to a standard word processor, screenwriting software, desktop publishing software, or TeX." Outlining Your Novel Workbook from (our own) K.M. Weiland helps with novel structure. ProWritingAid is kind of like Grammarly on steroids. "ProWritingAid analyzes your writing and produces reports on areas such as overused words, writing style, sentence length, grammar and repeated words and phrases."
  8. I've completely eliminated semi-colons from my writing - I use dashes instead. I have the sense modern readers don't know what to do with semi-colons. (Whether that's right or not isn't the question. I've seen people stop reading a piece because it contained a semi-colon. Knowing this, I switched over to dashes - modern readers seem to grok those just fine.
  9. Advancing The Plot

    Heh. Lynn beat me to it.
  10. I just picked up lifetime access to ProWritingAid for $125. I think that deal is active for a month or so.
  11. C.S. Lakin sees a recurring problem - scenes that don't advance the plot. https://www.livewritethrive.com/2018/02/19/keys-to-moving-your-plot-forward/
  12. I'm definitely a Space Cadet.
  13. From author DiAnn Mills. https://www.livewritethrive.com/2018/02/08/15-ways-to-strengthen-writer-courage/
