"Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the readers. Not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon." E.L. Doctorow #writing #quotes
The reader only knows what you tell them.... -me, all semester. Guess that needs to evolve too..."the reader only knows what you tell them, and only remembers how you make them feel..."
Let's replace "good writing" with "good art". Good art, including the art of being who you are, is to EVOKE, not tell. If you have to say it, it isn't yet obvious. Stop talking, start being. Someone should have the feeling of being "rained upon" ; this is NOT me telling them, "Oh how I love to rain on you." Or this classic: "GOD has called me to rain on you...Blah blah". please, artist/writer/Christian woman - hone your life or art so that it "just is", without your propping it.
The best writers make you feel as if you are in the story rather than just an observer.
One of the most important revelations of my academic career originated with a phrase my college counselor used to say: “make sure you show the reader who you are, don’t just tell them.” I don’t think I fully grasped that concept until after I got to college and began to investigate the texts around me. What I appreciate in books I read and what I hope my photography and writing demonstrate is the feeling of what is being described, not just the event that occurs in the description. It’s through
A good writer makes you feel something

"Treat all your secondary characters like they think the book's about them." Jocelyn Hughes (Actors have known this for centuries).
"Treat all your secondary characters like they think the book's about them." Jocelyn Hughes Love this advice. Just saw Marvel's The Winter Soldier and I think it did just that. Incredible what a difference it makes.
"Treat all your secondary characters like they think the book's about them." Jocelyn Hughes I do in away. My trio consist of my main and two supports, but they almost all receive the same level of detail. If anything I have to vamp up my main to help her keep up. Oops.

Writer S Life, Writing Stuff, Writing Tips, Editing Stages, Copy Edits
The first draft is a stepping stone. It's very important to do a copy edit at least two or three times. I do one when the manuscript is completed and ready for submission, one when I've finished and reviewing the edits form the publisher, and one when I proof read the final draft.
When it is time to edit, DON'T do ALL the kinds of editing at one time! Edit in stages. Working toward particular kinds of improvements one-at-a-time (dialogue, verb-choice, imagery, and etc.) will always result in a tighter piece of writing. Start with large edits first, and then move to more precise editing. Never waste your time editing grammar BEFORE macro-edits. #writingprocess #editing #writing
Excellent summary of the three stages of editing. Good to focus on all within your grant process!

A writer becomes a writer because he/she writes because, even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.
"A writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily... [but because] you keep writing anyway." Great quote on writing and persistence, especially without payoff.
When introducing Writer's Workshop... let them know it's okay to struggle, as long as you don't give up.

I usually start out with a good idea and then that idea completely evolves into a totally different story
Writing Problems # 105 When you're halfway through the story, you suddenly think of all sorts of new amazing ideas, and just sit there rethinking everything again.
Writing Problems #105 When you're thinking through the story, suddenly think of all sorts of new amazing ideas, and just sit there rethinking everything again. (I don't like it when this happens, but it does help improve a story)
Writing Problems - Oh gosh, I've done this so much. Then I kinda just sit at my desk and stare at the wall for hours.
Writing problems. It's even worse when you do this when you only have a few scenes left to write before you're "done" with the first full draft.
Or you come up with a completely different story idea and then give up on that book!

Soap for Writer's Block - BEST SELLER
From the maker: "Try this specially-crafted Writer’s Block soap. If this soap doesn’t help you churn out regurgitated ideas and probably a vampire, I’ll eat my hat. It’s a fedora, by the way. Cool vampires wear fedoras now. Put that in your crack pipe and smoke it. Or in your book. Either way, you’re gonna need this soap ASAP. Your ideas are terrible."

I like this quote. I'm not old (yet) but there is this sense of urgency; like if you are not a wunderkind, there's no point in trying. But then I saw how that 80+-year-old man won an award for his first screenplay a year or two ago, and anytime I feel discouraged I remember him (if not his name, at the moment).
Beautiful quote about writing.
