You go to all the trouble of creating interesting, fully formed characters, so it's no surprise if they suddenly refuse the bridle of the plot.
If you can't believe your character would take certain action, the audience won't either so if you're stuck, try giving your feisty characters their head and seeing which direction they run in. (less)

Don't be daunted by the process of getting your material to market, don't be intimidated by the scope of your project, and don't put it off 'til tomorrow. As long as your story remains locked away in your head, nobody else can enjoy it!(less)

Read on for the best stories to take you through October ...

B.P. Gregory and 4 other people liked Gavin's review of No One Gets Out Alive:
No One Gets Out Alive by Adam Nevill
"Outstanding.

I can't recall a book that has made me feel so uncomfortable. 82 Edgehill Road is a true house of horrors both real and supernatural.

The story is initially skillfully paced and the first 9 days of Stephanies stay at Edgehill Road flew by." Read more of this review »

“It were as though the building’s kilometres of clanky old ductwork connected up to an asthmatic giant with poor oral hygiene, hidden away somewhere in the basement.”
B.P. Gregory, Outermen

“The only things that moved in the neighbourhood were bits and bobs of bafflingly pointless machinery, whittling the hours busily doing nothing. Waiting to be freed from flesh. It was an oppressive reality come home to roost. This house here contained dead people. And that one, and that one there. The same all the way down the block, horrible, inexplicable, and so quiet.”
B.P. Gregory, Something for Everything

“Every time I am squeezed into life, thrust out into the world through blood and muck she is the very first thing I feel: before light, before air.”
BP Gregory, Mould

“One single supporter remained faithful to him: an old paralytic, Lord Albermarle. The noble lord, confined to his armchair, would have given his whole fortune to be able to travel around the world, in ten years even; and he bet four thousand pounds on Phileas Fogg.”
Jules Verne, Around the World in Eighty Days

“For the truth is ... that human beings have neither kindness, nor faith, nor charity beyond what serves to increase the pleasure of the moment. They hunt in packs. Their packs scour the desert and vanish screaming into the wilderness. They desert the fallen.”
Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway

“The officer sat with his long, fine hands lying on the table, perfectly still, and all his blood seemed to be corroding.
- The Prussian Officer”
D H Lawrence

“In the months since Challenger, Baedecker had found it hard to believe that the country had ever flown so frequently and competently into space. The long hiatus of earthbound doubt in which nothing flew had become the normal state of things to Baedecker, mixing in his own mind with a dreary sense of heaviness, of entropy and gravity triumphant.”
Dan Simmons, Phases of Gravity
