The Neat Freak

I love to write stories with twists and turns. I love to write stories about monsters and devils . But in order to do that convincingly  I have to be absolutley sure that the world is full of good things too.

So I have chosen this quote about writing by Gustave Flaubert and these photographs to illustrate the point.

Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.

Dear Writers, Watch This!

 I have learned is that stepping out of your genre  can only add  richness to your writer’s voice.

For example.

I don’t get poetry, I don’t understand poetry I never actually read or enjoyed it. But when I started getting comments from readers who read my short stories and thought they were poems, I said to myself ” maybe you should do this on purpose “

What I discovered was writing poems helped me learn to express the visual aspects of my stories and it helped me keep on track and focused when I wrote short stories or flash fiction.

So give this clip a view- of course I’d suggest watching the film as well. But what I wanted to share was the wealth of information you will find here.
