About this author

Tyler Rudd Hall is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and grew up in rural Alberta in the small farming community of Rosemary. There wasn’t a lot to do there so he had to keep himself occupied with his imagination and VHS copies of Star Wars. After graduating from Rosemary High School he found himself in Edmonton Alberta and enrolled in the Professional Writing program at MacEwan University. While there he met his beautiful and talented wife.

After graduating he continued to work part time instead of finding a real job and wrote novels when he wasn’t working. He wrote the first draft of Catalyst for NaNoWriMo 2010. When he finished he started rewriting but found that he couldn’t do it because he needed to know what h...more

Writing novels takes a long time. Even if you publish your first draft (don’t you dare publish your first draft) it still takes months to write that. Then you have rewrites all over the place—if your lucky. Sometimes you have to start over completely with zero words. I’ve done that twice with Book 3. Sometimes it feels like I haven’t accomplished anything.


It feels so good to finish a project so...

Elmore Leonard's Ten Rules of Writing

1. Never open a book with weather.
2. Avoid prologues.
3. Never use a verb other than "said" to carry dialogue.
4. Never use an adverb to modify the verb "said”…he admonished gravely.
5. Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose.
6. Never use the words "suddenly" or "all hell broke loose."
7. Use regional dialect, patois, sparingly.
8. Avoid detailed descriptions of characters.
9. Don't go into great detail describing places and things.
10. Try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip.

My most important rule is one that sums up the 10.

If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.

Arthur Conan Doyle
“Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself; but talent instantly recognizes genius.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, The Valley of Fear

Robert McKee
“Write every day, line by line, page by page, hour by hour. Do this despite fear. For above all else, beyond imagination and skill, what the world asks of you is courage, courage to risk rejection, ridicule and failure. As you follow the quest for stories told with meaning and beauty, study thoughtfully but write boldly. Then, like the hero of the fable, your dance will dazzle the world.”
Robert McKee

Chris Heimerdinger
“There are only two forces at work in this world- black and white. Only people are grey.”
Chris Heimerdinger, Gadiantons and the Silver Sword

Chris Heimerdinger
“If you don't feel as close to God today as you did yesterday, who moved?”
Chris Heimerdinger, Feathered Serpent, Part 1

Chris Heimerdinger
“Knowing the precies answers is not as crucial as the certainty that the answers do, in fact, exist.”
Chris Heimerdinger, Feathered Serpent, Part 2
