  1. Avoid These Mistakes!

  2. Avoid These Mistakes!

    One would think that even if the book was good (or especially if it was good) the publisher would insist on improving the writing before it was published. But hey, that author is published and I'm not, so I guess I can't really talk.
  3. Avoid These Mistakes!

    It's amazing the book ever got published. What were the editors thinking?
  4. Have You Ever Scrapped And Started Over?

    I have scrapped chapters on several occasions, and was glad when I saw how much better the book was without them.
  5. Happy birthday, Blackthorne!

    Wow, thank you all! it's quite a surprise to log in this morning and find this! Nice! And thanks again!
  6. Anyone Know This Book? The Elements Of Style

    Thank you Cecilia and Phy!

    Is King's book also good if you only write non-fiction? Plotting means nothing to me since I don't write fiction.
  8. Blog Before Publishing

    Thank you, Lynn! You can be modest, okay, but it was mostly your advice in this thread that got me going in the right direction. I also signed up for your blog, and I'm really enjoying it. And I have studied your style to understand more of how things are done. After reading what you advised here, I began studying a great many blogs, and saw how right you have been in all you advised here. I won't overdo it here by saying thanks again. (but thanks!)
  9. Blog Before Publishing

    This thread has pretty much changed my life. I'm now on Twitter (I've been on FB for a decade, no problem there), have set up a web site and I began a blog on my site a couple of weeks ago. None of that would have happened without your guidance, Lynn. God bless you! https://www.godpreparedafish.com
  10. This Teaser Isn't Working....

    Thank you, Nicola.

    Yours was better, I think. But I figured you had it copyrighted, so I just stumbled onward.

    "How does a thrill-seeking atheist adjust to life after discovering Jesus?" For better or worse, that's it and all the one-sheets are printed, in the folder that I'll be carrying at the conference. With apologies to Zechariah, "not by brilliant writing, nor by witty phrases, but by my Spirit, says the Lord." Or, 1 Corinthians 1:27, "But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong." If God wants this book to get published, He will make a way.

    Well, that's creative, no doubt about it. I've been going at this too softly, haven't I?
  14. This Teaser Isn't Working....

    Thank you, my friend. I'm pretty excited. We'll see where the Lord takes me.
  15. This Teaser Isn't Working....

    I figured out something that works, thank you both for your input!
