PUBLISH

What do you want for Christmas?

Peace on earth is hoped for.

What are we writing that will encourage others to be peaceful?
Some will refuse to read the Good News to all people.

Publish the Good News everywhere. The ones who know why the season is celebrated must share.

Jesus came to deliver all from despair and destruction.
Ask Him to deliver you.

Keep writing!

Sincerely,
The Editor

WRITER'S BLOCK

What are your hangups?

They will surely appear when you decide to finish the story.

What we allow in our area, especially family and pets will keep us in the pen.
Not on the pen.

Writer's block does not always mean that the writer can't think of what to write. Our imagination goes on ad infintim. We have a knee jerk reaction when family or needy pet shows up.

My son in law is in the hospital.
Must go take up the slack.

Keep writing!

WHAT GOES ON IN YOUR HEAD

Have you ever watched the sunlight move the shadows across a surface?

It is most interesting if there is a pattern or a shape.

You can relate your character to those shadows that move across the scene in your mind.
Any bumps on the wall that the shadow passes over will change the shadow shape.

What goes on in your head when you see the shadow is what you get. You might see the shadow as the villian chasing a character in the story. If you look at the light patterns, it could appear that the light is winning.

Use your imagination on things in your world.
Your imagination has already made your world what it is today.

Keep writing!

GET READY

How does your character adapt?

I mentioned this issue before, but it has several different aspects.

Do they adjust their looks, clothes or personality to get their way?
If your character is a bank robber, what do they wear that is different from their usual attire?

Get ready to find new ways for your character to interact with the story. A mechanic might want to use tools to solve their problems. A seamstress might sew their enemy into a corner of a quilt.

Mountain people could hide in caves until the revenuers(1929) left.
And gold diggers would use special tricks of their trade.

Keep writing!

HOW FAR

Generally in the story the character is against what appears to be insurmountable odds.

Circumstances that surround the character making them feel hopeless.

Then the character gets rescued.
It may be their actions or the cops arrive.

How far will your character go to get rescued? Do they have the proverbial Swiss Army knife? I'm guessing they may not be the MacGyver type. They have to decide to get delivered.

Barriers between the character and their desire starts the story.
Resolution of the barriers is the story.

Keep writing!

HOW MANY

Mix and match your characters in different situations.

Does it help your story?

Last week might have brought you into contact with many different people.
Some may not have been your nationality.

How many people would your character usually associate? Normally you may have many people in your story, but the basic story should be about three people interacting.

Of course, there will be many people contributing dialogue, like waitress, bus or cab driver.
But the story line follows what the three main characters have to say.

Keep writing!
