    Cold Constellation

    Cold Constellation

    Read and study the passage carefully below👇 It was all cold and snowy, I had decided to take a cup of coffee before I took the long walk off to work which was eastwards. "Trip-Trip-Trip" was the sound that silently filled the atmosphere of my room as I began stirring the mix in my cup briefly. It was just a quarter to eight O'clock in the morning as it began to dawn on me that i had left my car parked at Anne's the previous day as I couldn't drive home from the get together at the east of Carrington in St John's Cafe, I think i had too much to drink from the merry and celebration of Johnson's birthday.

    5 Common Writing Mistakes to Avoid!

    5 Common Writing Mistakes to Avoid!

    Writing fiction is a rewarding hobby, passion or career choice for anyone who enjoys creating new worlds and characters, and loves the art of writing. However, whether you’re a new writer or have self-published a series of novels, several common writing mistakes will make you stick out like a sore thumb to agents, editors and your readers. These mistakes are relatively easy to rectify if you know what to look for, but many writers don’t and assume they have written a masterpiece, only to be disappointed when they face rejections and no book sales.

    How to Plan a Historical Novel in 3 Easy Steps

    How to Plan a Historical Novel in 3 Easy Steps

    Reading a historical novel is exciting; you get to travel back to the era you find most interesting and immerse yourself with characters from the past. I mean, what better way to escape from the horrors here in the present day? However, a historical novel is one of the hardest things to write. Unless you’re creating your own history in a historical fantasy or a science fiction, you have to make sure that every little detail is accurate. If you don’t, readers will quickly pick up on the inaccuracies, and your book will flop like a bitch!

    Do You Need a Pseudonym to Boost Your Book Sales?

    Do You Need a Pseudonym to Boost Your Book Sales?

    As an avid reader, a passionate writer and a professional copy editor, I have always explored different genres and styles written by all kinds of authors. However, in the publishing world, authors are often advised to use their initials or to create a pseudonym to grow their audience and increase their book sales. Why? Because apparently, some readers can be picky when it comes to an author’s sex. For example, J. K. Rowling was advised against using her full name, Joanne Rowling, when publishing Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone due to the assumption that boys would not read books written by female authors. In recent years, Rowling has used the pseudonym, Robert Galbraith, to separate her crime books from her general fiction, but why has she used a male name? Perhaps to avoid being judged for being a female author? Nora Roberts has also done the same thing – she goes by the name of J. D. Robb for her crime novels, which doesn’t reveal her sex or who she is.

    Age is Nothing

    Age is Nothing

    Age is nothing- Jenny walked out of the bedroom with her long, grey walking dress. Her hair was put in a braid with her bangs swept across her face. She picked up the big light bag and her hand touched the knob that would be her exit. However, before she could turn it, a bigger slightly lined hand stopped her departure. She looked up, not surprised. The figure muttered the words "This is really not necessary, we can send the gatekeeper later, we'll pay a little extra and he'll do whatever I need him to, even if it's not part of the job description."

    The Pens

    The Pens

    The Pens The man is a writer. He became a writer long before he ever knew he was a writer. In his younger years of life, he found he was unable to express himself to his fullest potential verbally. The crowd he ran with started to assume he had developed a bad case of anxiety or stage fright at its worst. He simply was not able to speak to others at social gatherings. His friends finally realized he had a serious problem with speaking to others outside of his immediate group. If he knew you, and everyone else in the room, he could talk and carry a conversation with no problem. As soon as someone new stepped into the picture his demeanor changed instantly. Was he just plain out paranoid or he was schizophrenic? He had problems with raising his hand in class. If he was called on, he would stumble over his words even on the subjects he knew. He was held back by his own internal issues. No one paid much attention to his problem as the childhood years of his life passed away. He would learn to cope with it in his own way but it was still a problem. He sat with counselors who were unable to break through to him and when a shrink attempted to get through to him he just gave them quick and easy answers to get through the session as fast as possible. He had never let anyone inside his head at this point in his life, not a single person. Every time he found a woman that he thought he might open up to they always left not much longer after he had begun to test the waters of opening up to a human being.
