Much needed advice for me, thought I’d share. 🙂

Creative Writing with the Crimson League

I’ve been considering the topic of content edits over the last few days, since I’m dealing with a first round of edits right now. Today I wanted to focus on something that is obvious for us writers: so obvious that we sometimes forget to do it.

When you realize that something in your plot doesn’t hold together, it’s important to ask why that is before trying to fix the story.

MASKING VERSUS CORRECTING

You see, masking a problem versus fixing it can be two different things.

When you–or your editor and beta readers–don’t focus on the reason that some aspect of your plot isn’t holding up, your chances of just masking the issue, rather than fixing it, go up.

If a character is acting inconsistently–propounding one point of view in one scene and then acting against it with no real consideration of it in a future scene, the real issue…

Apple Cider Vinegar Handbook
Apple Cider Vinegar Handbook by Shae Harper
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This isn’t so much a read straight through book. It is informative in the beginning, then there is a break down of disorders and conditions by name in alphabetical order and how ACV can help. The back of the book is dedicated to recipes, some even this gluten-free/vegan can enjoy. Though I like the Kindle format, this might be a good tree-book to have on hand. I have often heard of the AVC tonic and have taken it when I remember. I like it cool in the summer but hot in the winter. There are so many uses for this wonderful inexpensive liquid!

The Scriptorium Daily. Is out!! Lots of writing helps!


Dar49 Daily. Is out! Maybe the robots over-did the Game of Thrones. You’re welcome, I’m sorry accordingly. I took out the ones that contained spoilers for those who haven’t read the books.


The Locket Thief
The Locket Thief by Daniel Patrick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thank you, Daniel Patrick, for the offer of a lifetime! You were right! This book was brilliant! I hated when real life drew me away from reading it.

This book is like a combination Golden Compass, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Annie. The action and adventure never lets up. The characters are well developed. I loved that it felt gender neutral. I think young men and women would love this equally, as well as children and senior citizens. There’s something there for everyone. This could easily be made into a movie.

***The problems written here before have been edited out. So this author deserves five plus stars!!!!***

Fabulous read! Thanks, again! Can’t wait to read the next book!
