Dear Ms. Meyer, Greetings. I am Kitty, ambassador of the Hive, and I come in peace. Dear Ms. Meyer, Please Write Better
Why Don't YOU Go Write A Bestselling Novel? I thought that was pretty stupid actually, and I do love to laugh at certain things at Twilights expense (Team Khaki!) but that wasn’t funny, it was the same old “oh your prose is too PURPLE !” argument people have against the writing. Which is fine, whatever, you don’t have to like that style of writing, but if Smeyer is so awful then THEY can go out and write their own damned best-seling novel showing how THEY think vampires should be. Sorry, I wasn’t amused =/ -Twifan on IMDB after reading my article (emphasis mine)
Dear Pristopher Chaolini, Hi there. I noticed ever since Eldest you seem to be quite bored with your “cycle”. Suggestions To Mr. Paolini
Myth & Moor: Writing in blood "As a child, I read because books–violent and not, blasphemous and not, terrifying and not–were the most loving and trustworthy things in my life. I read widely, and loved plenty of the classics so, yes, I recognized the domestic terrors faced by Louisa May Alcott’s March sisters. But I became the kid chased by werewolves, vampires, and evil clowns in Stephen King’s books.

You’ve decided you want to improve your handwriting and you’re probably hoping a fountain pen will do the trick -- maybe a friend told you it would. Maybe you’re just adventurous and you want to try your hand at calligraphy (or you might, once your handwriting improves). Good for you! A fountain pen may make your writing look a bit better, but if your writing looks as if frenzied chickens got loose on the page, chances are this won’t be enough. Most likely, you’ll need to retrain your arm and hand.
Last Name Generator - The Random Surname Generator! Jump down to the Generator Thinking of surnames can be a tedious task, whether the last name is for a character in a fictional book, game or for an alias. I am guessing you are here because you are an author and have found it difficult to think of a good surname.
Write or Die is a web application that encourages writing by punishing the tendency to avoid writing. Start typing in the box. As long as you keep typing, you’re fine, but once you stop typing, you have a grace period of a certain number of seconds and then there are consequences. Many people find themselves unable to write consistently. I believe that this is because their reason to write is intangible. Write or Die by Dr Wicked | Putting the 'Prod' in Productivity
