Quotations on Writing First Drafts by Charles F. French

Standard

“Do not revise while writing a first draft!”

 

“No first draft is ever perfect, nor should it be.”

 

“Remember that writing is never finished–it is due.”

(This quotation or something like it has been offered by many teachers of writing.)

“Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.”

                                                                Theodore Roosevelt

May Installment of Promote Your Book!

We are well into the month of May, and I thought it was time again for a book promotion party!

I want to offer an opportunity for all writers who follow this blog to share information on their books. It can be very difficult to generate publicity for our writing, so I thought this little effort might help. All books may be mentioned, and there is no restriction on genre. This encompasses fiction, poetry, plays, and non-fiction. If I have neglected to mention a genre, please consider it to be included.

To participate, simply give your name, your book, information about it, and where to purchase it in the comments section. Then please be willing to reblog and/or tweet this post. The more people that see it, the more publicity we can generate for everyone’s books.

Thank you for participating!

Keep on writing!

Quotations on Stories

Standard

Stephen_King,_Comicon

(https://en.wikipedia.org)

“There are books full of great writing that don’t have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story… don’t be like the book-snobs who won’t do that. Read sometimes for the words–the language. Don’t be like the play-it-safers who won’t do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.”

                                                                              Stephen King

 

Tim_obrien_2012

(https://en.wikipedia.org)

“That’s what fiction is for. It’s for getting at the truth when the truth isn’t sufficient for the truth.”

                                                                              Tim O’Brien

J._K._Rowling_2010

(https://en.wikipedia.org)

“There’s always room for a story that can transport people to another place.”

Pre-release Notice of Get The Draft Done! and The Investigative Paranormal Society Cookbook by Charles F. French!

Standard

I am very excited to announce that I will have two books out soon! I do not have a specific release dates yet, but when they are certain, I will reveal them.

One book is traditionally published: Get The Draft Done! — a book to help writers who struggle to complete a first draft.

The other book is self-published (more adventures in being a hybrid writer!) — The Investigative Paranormal Society Cookbook — and is a fun little volume of recipes from characters from the Investigative Paranormal Society.

More information on these books soon!
