I disappeared for the past month and a half. Because I finished book 6 early, I decided to release both at once. This video reveals the titles for both of those books and gives a little information on what you can expect from each.

Yesterday, we talked about words that we didn't like to use. Each writer has words he dislikes, but sometimes those words are exactly what is needed. As writers, it can also be tempting to use words that mean a very specific thing. Now, I am not opposed to this at certain times, especially if the writer uses this words naturally in speech, but big words can be something that obscures rather than clarifies for the reader.

Today is day 19. The final edit of the book is finished. It is now time to send the book off to the copyeditor.

If you are unaware, I am taking on a unique goal for National Novel Writing Month. Most people will write the first draft of their novel when they go into national novel writing month, but I wanted to take it a step further. Instead of only writing the first draft of a book, I wanted to take that book from its initial idea to publication.

Some words sound gross (gross!). Some words are annoying. They don't roll off the tongue. They are overused, etc. . . There are a lot of reasons why a writer might want to disregard some words. Some of these reasons are better than others. In this episode of How to Write Good, we are going to be talk about words you dislike that you might not want to blacklist forever. Every part of language is useful, and I think we need to remember that.

One Last Toast for Ebenezer Fleet:
https://www.spreaker.com/show/one-last-toast-for-ebenezer-fleet

When you first start writing, I think your goal should be clarity. Can a regular person understand what you are writing. It is more complex than it seems. If you can't write clearly, the purpose of your writing (being understood) has been stymied. One of the next goals I have when writing is making my writing easy to read. But this does not mean I am making my writing simple or childish. Maybe a better way to express this second goal is for me to say that you should try to make your writing pleasurable to read.

For whatever reason, celebrities think they should be listened to. And it works. People see that someone has a following whether because they are an actor or an influencer on instagram (like me, lol, SAD), but it is generally the case that these people don't know what the heck they are talking about. On this episodes of How to Write Good, we are going to talk about how you should stop listening to celebrities. We are also going to talk about how artists (whether that is a painter, a musician, an author, etc. . .) don't have some special knowledge that the rest of the population does.

Tim Ferris of 4 Hour Work Week fame, talks about an enticing idea in his book (He has a lot of enticing ideas in his book). It isn't about working only four hours a week. It isn't about setting up a muse business. It is about the way he approaches goals. He works in 6 month stints. I think that this is a great thing to adopt for any writer. This is what we are going to talk about on this week's episode of How to Write Good.

Some writers are elitists. Some writers want to write the next great American novel (or English novel or Australian (if they read down there)). And writing for regular people is something that is left for bad writers. I think this is stupid (because I think a lot of things are stupid). Instead of writing for a small group of elites, consider writing for regular people. Just think of how much larger your impact could be.

Why do we write? That is is common question I ask when thinking about writing. Some people think that writing is only to make words sound good together, but I think this misses the point of the writing completely.

If you do some research on working as a writer, you will find one piece of advice that comes up in relation to marketing. That advice is to stick to one genre. This advice makes marketing sense. If you write in the same genre, the people who enjoy your books will enjoy all your books. If you are going to write westerns, and you build an audience that enjoys your westerns, they are less likely to enjoy the scifi you write. You are throwing them a curveball of some sort. But what if this marketing advice leads you down a bad writing path. We are going to be talking about that today.

The first thing you should know before anything else is that you should not listen to me. You shouldn't listen to me. You shouldn't listen to other writers telling you what to do. What you need to do is figure out your own way of writing. But I don't think that setting out on your own trail is the way most writers decide to go. Most writers are reading or listening to other writing advice. The reason why people usually don't want to figure things out themselves is because it is hard, but it might be the case that you are missing out on something because you aren't doing the hard thing. But then again, maybe you shouldn't listen to what I am saying here. At least you would be listening to me if you choose to disregard my advice.

Some people dismiss fantasy fiction. They see it as something that is not serious. It is not considered high literature. High literature does not deal with things that aren't real, or high literature carries around specific ideas. But fantasy is a very unique type of story. It allows us to go into a different world, and that new world as so many different possibilities. I think that looking at what fantasy is can be extremely useful when understanding fiction. It provides us with a certain type of opportunity we would not otherwise have.
