Not that parents and teachers like to hear my answer but, here goes: Best part about being a writer is you get paid for lying. Seriously, I learned this in high school. When I was young I tended to elaborate my answers. But that's called stretching the truth. Turns out novelist do that and more and people pay us when we do it well.

So for me, the best part of being a writer is I can make up worlds, people, and control the outcome to conflicts. More on this later.(less)

During my devotional time this morning I came across this story.

“For my tenth birthday I begged for and received a shiny new fishing pole. On my first trip to the brook, I was squeamish about pushing the worm onto the hook, so I quietly decided to use the bologna from my sandwich instead. My brother wondered why the fish were biting for him but not for me. I just held my pole up, shrugged my sh... Read more of this blog post »

“What readers seek is an experience different from their own. Story is how readers dream. Story is what sells the book. The power of the premise is what captures the reader, editor, or agent’s attention—not the characters and prose. Unless we care about the story we will never welcome the actors on stage. It is this power of desire that pulls us into the story.”
Eddie Jones, A Novel Idea: Story Structure Tips For the Break-Out Novelist

“Bert, a slow moving tropical storm that had spent the past few days wandering around the Bahamas like a dog looking to do its business. Circle once, circle twice, and squat. Now the storm had settled over Cockroach Cay, prompting Sonny to conclude that renting a sailboat during hurricane season, while exciting and dangerous, was too much fun for him. He was glad they were still at the dock.”
Eddie Jones, Bahama Breeze

“Sonny plunged back to earth like Neil Armstrong. Or maybe it was Lance Armstrong. Sonny could never remember which man had ridden around the moon seven times. But he knew he was headed for a splashdown.”
Eddie Jones, Bahama Breeze
