Hi Jan -Camy Tang is well-known not only for her books, but also for her classes. I hope you find something in this article to apply to your own writing.Blessings,Susan :)
Stopping by to say have a good weekend-- I once took a course from Camy and she is really good!
I wouldn't dare to add something else to her list, which is very complete.Have a great weekend Susan, enjoy.PS: I mentioned you on my blog and I 've mailed you with a question...
The Top 11th on my list would actually be my number one: don't NOT start a manuscript :)
I'm here to wish you a happy 4th of July.
Hi Terri -I've looked through her Story Sensei and website. She's an excellent teacher.Blessings,Susan :)
Hi Marja -I received your email and responded. I'll pop by your blog. :)Blessings,Susan
Hi Kathleen -Oh...yes...good one!Blessings,Susan :)
Hi Chatty -Thank you! We're truly blessed to live in this great nation.I'm determined to visit as many of my blogging buddies as possible this weekend. :)Blessings,Susan
Hi Susan .. I guess # 11 would be read her work, and/or attend her classesEnjoy the 4th July weekend .. Cheers Hilary
Hi Hilary -A very good #11! I'm sure Camy would approve. :)Blessings,Susan
Thanks for the great link. Hope all is going well for you.
Hi Kathi -You're welcome! I'm busy preparing for a writers conference. :)Blessings,Susan
That is a great list. I just have one objection. If I have to go back and reread a scene to see who said what because it is important to know this and the author hasn't made it clear, then I'd rather have an amateaur ,"said Bill," than glowing writing. I don't like to waste my time doing this.All of her other points are good to know.
Hi Nancy -Yes, it's always good to know who's doing the talking. An occasional, "said, Sally," is better than confusing the reader.Blessings,Susan :)
Hi Susan!Great post! Thanks for directing us to it.I'm a little late to comment, but I'd say another basic thing to know is how to set up a manuscript. Margins, starting chapter a 1/3 of the way down, how to do a header, and other basic things to make you look professional. Sometimes those kinds of little things can make all the difference.Thanks
