Unfortunately, I don’t need more persuasion…

By G.S. Williams, editor, author of No Man An Island

Oct 1, 2008: There is a too-often cited "writing tip" and that is "show, don’t tell." The idea is, you write a scene to "show" readers what you mean, instead of "telling" them.

Gotta See About A Girl

By lifesharpener, author of Man of Last Millennium

Jul 4, 2015: Now I’m not really into these types of stories . . . but I really like it. It’s a little sappy, but that’s the way I like my chick-flicks.

A story that switches between the perspectives of two high school boys, and their revolution around a special girl. The story is basically their interactions with her. One boy explores her somewhat flirtatious and romantic nature, one boy reveals her torn and conflicted history, and both expound on her remarkable uplifting character and uniqueness.
