Two Sides to a Story

It’s amazing how two people can tell one story differently. An elementary student views a teacher’s criticism as embarrassing. To be reprimanded in front of their friends can seem like┬áthe end of their world. But the teacher can view that moment as an opportunity for growth. A husband can kiss his wife goodnight to express his love. The wife can think he has an ulterior motive. “He wants something.” A guy can think that he finally made love to his girl. The girl can feel that she was raped. There…

Joker Sublteties Writing 

Subtleties in Writing or Subtle Writing

Acting is all about subtleties. With the joker, it isn’t just about what he says, but how. Don’t focus on his lips, which are amazingly creepy. Look at his eyebrows at the end. Check the headshake. Most book to film adaptations do not “feel” right because most films cannot capture the tremendous emotion in novels within two hours. However, most great films, like the Dark Knight series, never become books because you cannot capture the subtleties in actors like Heath Ledger. But you can try. When writing, it is important…

Plot and Divergent

I recently read Divergent, so I could have a conversation starter with one of my students. She tracked me down after the three day weekend to ask about my opinion of the reading.

There are no bells and whistles. Because almost everyone knows what this story is about, I’ll try to summarize in a short, sweet, and unique way….

Somehow, I always manage to come across someone’s novel writing advice. Either it falls into my internet lap, or I search for it when I’m bored. Either way, I see the advice of others and think it’s absolute crap. Are you considering writing a novel? Then, why are you researching how it’s done? Writing a novel is all about gaining experience. Before I researched how to write over 50,000 words, I just sat down and wrote. I did this again, year after year, for two years straight. I believe I…

Writing From Experience

Too many writers use the experience of characters from other novels and films to develop their characters. That’s why imagination is relatively low nowadays. Characters are often one dimensional because the writer doesn’t know how to convey something they’ve never experienced. With that being said, I find it very difficult to write fantasy novels. I love writing from experience,which is why most of my novels have romance in them. It’s also why I use harems and love triangles *wink*. However, I struggle relaying the true challenges of a superhuman and/or…
