If I get stuck, I take a walk, I read for a while, I work on something else, and then I come back to it. I outline everything I write first, so I know where I'm going and what needs to be done. If I start writing something and it isn't working, it might be because the piece simply doesn't have legs, or I'm coming at it from the wrong angle. If I'm bored writing it, you're going to be bored reading it, so I need to find out what will make the piece interesting for me to work on. (less)

I have to hold back from expressing political and religious opinions, or talking about current affairs, in any way that would alienate my readers. It's not what they seek out my books and essays for. The best thing about being a writer is that I've been able to create my own job. In a down economy and a job market plagued with high unemployment, and living in a foreign country where I have limited employment opportunities, I am grateful that I can write, and find people to pay me for my writing.

How can you add more empathy and suspense to your story of tragic descent?

[image error]Story Design Volume 20 – In a decline-and-fall story, the protagonist starts out in a high position, possessed of fortune and glory, having everything they could ever desire. This could be literal or metaphorical; they might have moral or ethical riches rather than money and possessions. The protagonist then...
