Gone Summer

I will be away for the summer. I won't be able to review anyone and my poetry is at a stop for now. Hopefully, I will stop by a couple of times and enjoy your writing. I'll see you in September!

xxLuvoxx’s Steps to Writing a Beautiful Novel

Write from what you feel: writing about what makes you happy and complete will show respect for yourself and the novel, which can make your reader respectable towards you. Big chances are that if you like this idea, others will too.

Paint a picture: Always give imaginable detail and create art with your words. If John is eating an apple, then make his teeth sink in into that red skin. Make sure to use lots of sounds and taste. Use your five senses and jot it down.

Never Tell: Never ever tell the reader, “this happened and that happened” First, it’s extremely boring and second, not exciting for the reader to have that urge to turn the page. Instead, show them what happened and get to a point where you think the reader finally got the idea. If it’s a car accident, try, “the clash of the two vehicles roared throughout the city.”

Are you writing the right book? You may have a fabulous idea of a story that you think will make it to the charts. But are you sure? Remember to accept the idea that your manuscript may not be able, but learn from that and continue on.

Plan a plot that will lead to increase suspense. Enough said.

Weird Characters: Make your characters unusual and different from the characters we read everyday. Build your own person and add in details to him or her special.

The lives of characters: snapshots of their past, old pictures they hold close, a flashback to a suspenseful event. Add these to your characters to enrich the plot of your story. Bring them alive and add their past to the plot.

The Conflict: The point where you feel like you can’t wait to find out what happens? Yeah. You want the conflict to be extraordinary. Make it seem almost impossible to get out of the situation. Make it interesting with lots of details. Show, not tell. Bring noise to your pages.

Foreshadowing: I love to foreshadow. It is one of my favorite things to add into a book. It gives a sense of what will happen in the future of the book without really knowing it. If a woman who is about to cheat on her husband, write earlier in the book, “she wanted revenge with passion.”

Write your very best: Don’t give a manuscript to a publisher when there are obvious mistakes or is not very well cleared. Don’t count on an editor to that for you because they probably won’t. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot, writing takes a lot of energy and time. But if you’re ready, do it all the way.
