You Say You Want A Resolution

Well, here’s one that’s bound to help unravel your plot.

In my last post, I talked about the importance of your opening and gave as examples how I needed to go deeper into my character’s personality and make certain that I’ve set the tone of my novel. For more on the subject of structure, character attributes and flaws you can read my post and go to the links. Well worth your time.

As I’ve already said, and you’re bound to have already heard it: Openings can make or break your writing career. More or less, that’s what the message is. At least, as I interpret it.

So, in creating your opening here’s something else to add to it.  I read about it in Jennie Nash’s newsletter. She suggests making this a New Years’ resolution. I think it’s a great idea.


Go ahead and read the post but don’t forget to come back. I’ve got an important message that I don’t want you to miss.

  3. Lovely New Year’s wish…and I hope they all come true for those who follow you and those whom you love. Good advice. I may try to write at least one good sentence a day!
    Happy New Year!


    • You know that’s the challenge. It’s not just one good sentence but you’ve got to have a lot of good sentences. But I think Jennie Nash’s suggestions are well worth following. You might want to take her up on her free 5 page edit in February she talks about on her post. I certainly will. She’s a great editor.
