Writers who want to give back to the community have taken to making lists of things to help other writers. Eleven ways to kill a character, twenty one ways to not suck, and so on.
I want to help, too, but I’m still new at this. So I thought I’d start out by making a simple list, and once I’m a better writer, I’ll come back and put some really useful advice in place of what I have now.
But for now, here’s a list of… oh, I don’t know — how about the top ten things that are on my mind right now:
- “Strengths” is the longest word in the English language I can think of that has only one vowel.
- I’m not a hat person. Not at all.
- Something about cosmology.
Okay, so it’s only four things. It turns out I’m not very good at multitasking. But in my defense, that hat thing takes up a lot of room in my brain.
And, hey, that first one is tangentially related to writing. That makes me a contributing member of the writing community. I win!
Okay, glad that’s over with. Off I go to all YOUR blogs to hone my craft at your expense. Keep it coming. I need all the help I can get.
