• Writing Tips

    Posted on October 27, 2012 by Rebecca in News.

    The best advice I can give to anyone is, if you want to write, then get on and do it.

    I should give this advice to myself too because I’ve been procrastinating ever since my group workshopped my last piece. It isn’t that they were unkind or critical, simply that they gave me ideas and put thoughts of change into my head.
    Things I was totally happy with have since become cracked and flawed. The comments have set me thinking and now I’ve got to go back and change things, names, places, times.

    The plot of this book is very complicated and depends on me getting each tiny detail just right. Well, all plots do, so I shouldn’t be complaining. I just feel inadequate and when I feel like that I don’t write.

    Instead, I blog.

    Or tweet.

    But I need to do those things too. So here are some pictures: the houses in Stollenback where my story is set.

    Magical aren’t they? And they really do exist.

    Secret doorways and latches and little windows . . .

    They are almost too perfect.

    I’ve made them grubbier and shabbier in my story.

    Wait and see.
