Before I …moreI'm also a screenwriter for film and one of the things I've carried over into my novel writing from screenwriting is a bullet point outline. Before I even begin to write a novel, I have to have a fully fleshed out story outline from start to finish. I do the discovery writing in between those bullet points to tie everything together. Using this method I rarely have writer's block when writing, the most blockage comes while trying to craft an entertaining outline. Another thing is, if you've created good strong characters, they will basically lead you as the writer on the journey of the tale. (less)

Neil Gaiman
“Remember: when people tell you something’s wrong or doesn’t work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong.”
Neil Gaiman

Ernest Hemingway
“As a writer, you should not judge, you should understand.”
Ernest Hemingway

“To understand why I jumped from the Mormon wagon train requires an understanding of what Mormons are and how they think. While Mormons have some quaint, quirky and fanatical ideas, they really aren't much different from millions of poor, guilt-ridden souls who, throughout the march of human history, have hitched their hopes to mass movements of one sort or another. Eric Hoffer, in his brilliant treatise, "The True Believer," explains the attraction of joining a cause: "A rising mass movement attracts and holds a following 'by the refuge it offers from the anxieties, barrenness and meaninglessness of an individual existence. It cures the poignantly frustrated by freeing them from their ineffectual selves--and it does this by enfolding and absorbing them into a closely knit and exultant corporate whole'. "Of all the cults and philosophies that competed in the Graeco-Roman world, Christianity alone developed from its inception a compact organization."

Once I realized this, it wasn't much of a leap out of religion altogether once I flew the Mormon coop. I simply wanted to be free from organizational groupthink. I escaped from the stuffy attic of religion's "pray, pay and obey" mentality into journalism's open laboratory of "who, what, where, when and why.”
