Tools of the Trade — Coopetition [REPOST]

tools of the tradeOriginal post on 01/28/2014

All writers have their little tricks and shorthand to be better writers, and I am no different.  Some of what I do seems unnecessary while other things I do are almost unheard of from others.  What I do is what works for me and I share this with my followers (both present and future) in hopes that it helps other writers. Today we discuss working together with your competition.

From what I can tell, I’m not the first to do a review on this book and so many have given great reviews. I’m not exactly breaking ground here in this review, but I do talk to a lot of starting writers who need a boost forward and this book is unknown to them. I hope that those writers visit my blog, so this review is for those who need a good starting point. And this book is that starting point. I do this review for anyone who hasn’t read this book because I think it deserves all attention it can get. Read more

Red Herring & Retroactive Continuity — A-to-Z Blog Challenge, Literary Terms

RA rough few letters and in the past week, and I start a new week with a somewhat easy letter. It’s a nice load off my mind, considering that this week and next week will be the hardest part of the challenge. Just one day at a time.

From the messages I’ve received, my posts have helped people learn a lot and that makes me very proud, as my goal with this blog is to teach people.

The words today is Red Herring and Retroactive Continuity.

As always, look forward to hearing from you. I feel I have made some new friends thanks to the contest, and it is always a welcome surprise to see your posts. Special shout out to fellow AtoZ Challenge Tasha Sophie Sara Veronica Nicohle and thank you for your support.

COOPETITION

Such a stranger word. Basically it is combining Competition and Cooperation together, much like frenemy is a combination of friend and enemy, and is parallel in definition of Coopetition.

Worldbuilding — Introduction

I will soon start writing a fantasy series and started trying to picture the world where my story takes place, but was having difficulty. I decided that I would try to draw it out, but I lacked the ability to draw and even if I try to fake it, I didn’t know how to make my land appear organic and nearly random. While there are many tools out there to help out with that, most of them cost money.

Money is a funny thing for us writers. Generally our primary focus when it comes to spending money is on professional editing, cover design, and any tools that help us release a book. So making a map of our world and designing further elements that may not be in our initial story is frivolous. It is nice to have a map, but not crucial. But wouldn’t you like one anyways?
