Sorry, just expressing some frustration.
Having got Redoubt onto Smashwords, I’m still awaiting their review prior to distribution. Not their fault, they are no doubt inundated with poeple submitting stuff. What is shocking is the amount of erotica you can gey on there. If that was your thing….Got to say thought, some of the titles are amazing!
Anywho, I am itching to get started on the next one now. Still got a month to go before I finish work, and I could start doing stuff now. OK, I can start doing stuff now. As soon as I have finished writing this blog. And made dinner. And had that delicious crumble thet the missus made last night. With custard. And then, dear friends! Oh yes, watch out.
I have actually started already, I am writing a scene that was originally related by the main character but I decided that this was a case “of show, don’t tell” as it has more dramatic impact and heightens the tension. Even as I’m writing it I’m going, hmm, is this right? Surely I can use better words and description and stuff. I think that I’m rushing it a tad – no matter, I can always go back and sort it. This is when it is good to get someone else’s opinion. I definitely think you can over-engineer description, it depends on context, sometime less is more.
You must write two sides and have 40 minutes, discuss!
