Picture of a typewriter with a flower


 


Writing fiction seemed so magical when I first started writing novels. I remember looking at my horrible scenes, comparing it to published fiction, and aching inside because I didnt know what I was doing.


I learned some craft techniques to help me along the way. But first, what is dialogue?


Dialogue is what your characters say between the quotation marks.


Here are some tips to strengthen dial...

Preslaysa Williams and 4 other people liked Melissa's review of The Other Mrs.:
The Other Mrs. by Mary Kubica
"Kubica's books are hit or miss for me, and this one was a miss. Mostly because the entire thing was absolutely beyond my abilities to believe. I couldn't even suspend disbelief for this one, it was just too out there.
This was another book where I..." Read more of this review »

In An Instant by Suzanne Redfearn
"3.5 stars
This book surprised me. It was definitely not what I was expecting, but it turned out to be both heartbreaking and intriguing at the same time. Graded it down a half star because I am not a fan of unresolved threads and there was one big..." Read more of this review »

John Green
“There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There's .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I'm likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn't trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I'm grateful.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
