6 WRITING TIPS FROM JOHN STEINBECK
Abandon the idea that you are ever going to finish. Lose track of the 400 pages and write just one page for each day, it helps. Then when it gets finished, you are always surprised.
Write freely and as rapidly as possible and throw the whole thing on paper. Never correct or rewrite until the whole thing is down. Rewrite in process is usually found to be an excuse for not going on. It also interferes with flow and rhythm which can only come from a kind of unconscious association with the material.
Forget your generalized audience. In the first place, the nameless, faceless audience will scare you to death and in the second place, unlike the theater, it doesn’t exist. In writing, your audience is one single reader. I have found that sometimes it helps to pick out one person—a real person you know, or an imagined person and write to that one.
If a scene or a section gets the better of you and you still think you want it—bypass it and go on. When you have finished the whole you can come back to it and then you may find that the reason it gave trouble is because it didn’t belong there.
Beware of a scene that becomes too dear to you, dearer than the rest. It will usually be found that it is out of drawing.
If you are using dialogue—say it aloud as you write it. Only then will it have the sound of speech.
"If there is a magic in story writing, and I am convinced there is, no one has ever been able to reduce it to a recipe that can be passed from one person to another. The formula seems to lie solely in the aching urge of the writer to convey something he feels important to the reader. If the writer has that urge, he may sometimes, but by no means always, find the way to do it. You must perceive the excellence that makes a good story good or the errors that makes a bad story. For a bad story is only an ineffective story."

    Based on bunjywunjy's post from earlier about Dinosaur Adventures.

    This took about an hour’s worth away from homework, but it felt good to draw a comic again. Plus I think my hand’s adapted well to Rabbit’s lovely new visage.

    better keep Rabbit away from Chickenworth because birds

    FIONIOES, WE HAVE AN ISSUE.

About me

Just your average joe Californian who lives in its Central Valley. At the wonderful age of 19, I'm currently really into The Beatles, Steam Powered Giraffe, personal enlightenment, Minecraft, Mass Effect, FMA: Brotherhood, Trigun, a butt-ton of films, learning how to cock my left eyebrow, and becoming a Romulan.

In case you were wondering, yes, I am a guy. Don't listen to the Man. Please use male pronouns. I'm also totally NOT a transdimensional chimera or a tech manticore although that remains to be seen ehehe

For internet purposes, you may refer to me as Buddy. :3

I occasionally reblog a few stuff here and there, and will sometimes post a a little something every once in a blue moon.
