Great hacks from Merlin Mann of 43 Folders. Free writing. Free writing is a prewriting technique in which a person writes continuously for a set period of time without regard to spelling, grammar, or topic.
It produces raw, often unusable material, but helps writers overcome blocks of apathy and self-criticism. It is used mainly by prose writers and writing teachers. Some writers use the technique to collect initial thoughts and ideas on a topic, often as a preliminary to formal writing. Free writing is not the same as automatic writing. Unlike brainstorming where ideas are simply listed, in freewriting one writes sentences to form a paragraph about whatever comes to mind.
History Dorothea Brande was an early proponent of freewriting. Free Writing Tutorial - F-R-E-E-Writing Tutorial. Orna Ross : F-R-E-E-Writing Tutorial By Orna Ross F-R-E-E-Writing is very simple.

I think less is more, and I’ll tell you why. It’s all about believability. We’ve all seen books where characters are introduced with a lengthy, dry passage of description that sounds more like a police blotter report than anything else: Jakob walked into the room. 6’2", burly build, wearing pin-striped Armani tailored to perfection. His shoes were black patent leather, with flawless white spats. Boring, isn’t it? The problem with this is not that any of the particular details are bad. The problem comes in the attempt to paint a fully unambiguous picture of the person, one that leaves no flexibility whatsoever in the reader’s mind as to how you envisioned the character. Stereotypes are good When introducing a character, you’re usually better off sticking with broad strokes. For that, nothing beats a stereotype.

With this year’s Nanowrimo, I will be finishing the first draft of a novel for the fifth time. It’s a great feeling, to reach that last page and set down that last period. Whenever I’ve done that, I always sit and stare blankly at the screen for a while. In slight disbelief that I did it. That it’s over. However, getting there is no picnic. But like the artist starts with a sketch, so does the writer. 01 : Hatch the plot First thing you’ll need is a story to tell. How to Make Readers Feel Emotion. On January 30th, 2011 by Fiction Editor Beth Hill and last modified on February 8, 2011 I wrote an article on the importance of creating emotions in readers, but I’ve noticed that writers are looking for specifics on how to accomplish that. So, this article complements that first one, presents practical tips on how to stir the reader’s emotions. Readers like to be touched, moved, by story. They like to imagine themselves in worlds and situations that challenge them, that give them opportunity to do and be something other than what they do or are in their real lives.
Fiction, whether in book or film or games, allows people to not only step into other worlds, but to experience those worlds. Since readers want to immerse themselves in other worlds and other lives, what can writers do to make that experience authentic, to make the fictional world real for a few hours?

This Evil Overlord List is Copyright 1996-1997 by Peter Anspach. If you enjoy it, feel free to pass it along or post it anywhere, provided that (1) it is not altered in any way, and (2) this copyright notice is attached. This Evil Overlord List grew out of the exchanges on what is now the Star Trek mailing list "email@example.com", beginning in 1994 (when it was still "firstname.lastname@example.org").
We were kicking around cliches that appeared on "Deep Space 9" at the time, and I started to compile a list of classic blunders they were making. The list came to about 20 or so items. In 1995, I decided to try to make it into a Top 100 List. On November 12, 2002, I exchanged some emails with Jack Butler who has a list on his website. Apparently both lists were compiled during overlapping periods of time. I believe Jack Butler when he says the list on his website is the current form of the James Bond Villain list, and I thank him for helping to clarify matters.
Tester son personnage : le questionnaire. Appels à textes et concours - Le Wiki imaginaire. Bonnes Nouvelles : Nouvelles littéraires et concours de nouvelles. Quarante-Deux. Mise à jour : 26/12/14 L'objectif de ce guide est de recenser les publications faniques* francophones dans le domaine de la Science-Fiction et du Fantastique (avec des incursions dans le jeu de rôles et la BD lorsqu'ils relèvent du genre, et parfois même la nouvelle généraliste).
Par fanique*, on entend généralement "réalisé par des amateurs", ou au moins des bénévoles. Dans ce guide, on trouvera également des revues pouvant se targuer du qualificatif de professionnelles, ainsi que plusieurs maisons d'édition de taille modeste vendant leur production par correspondance (condition sine qua non pour figurer dans ce guide). Les qualifier de faniques* en les incluant dans cette liste ne veut réduire en rien leur sérieux ou leur caractère professionnel. Bien au contraire, une telle qualification doit être prise comme un hommage au dévouement et au caractère passionné de leurs responsables.
