12 Things I've Learned as a Writer I Wish Someone Told Me Sooner




I've been in this whole trying-to-be-a-published-author game for ten years now, five years seriously. That makes me sounds old. I was eleven when I started! Okay? Moving on ... When I was eleven I dreamed I'd be the youngest author published ever. Yeah that didn't happen because of the many things I've encountered in my writing journey.

All my experiences have had their purpose, but some things I wish someone told me earlier. Perhaps it would've spared me some hardship and helped things move along faster. I'm hoping sharing what I've learned will help someone. Here we go.

1.) You Are Not Alone - You are not the only writer on the planet. They all aren't dead already. If you only read Tolkien, Lewis, and Dickens then it's easy to think this. There are so many people out there just like you that want to write stories.

That shouldn't be intimidating, that should be encouraging. You're not the only one out there and there are other people that share your dream. This also should caution you that writing is very competitive. There are so many people that want to get published and only the ones with determination will succeed.


2.) Write As Much As You Can - If you want to be a writer, you need to actually write a book. It's not going to be easy, but it's not impossible. Other authors have done it somehow ...

Make goals for yourself even if it's just a hundred words a day. Over time your writer stamina will build up and one thousand and two thousand words or more will be no problem. Keep yourself accountable or ask a friend to help you. The point is if you don't ever practice your skill, it's not going to get better. Practice writing like you practice baseball or the piano or karate.


3.) Read All The Time - A few years back I was stupid enough to take a hiatus from reading while going through a rough time. Don't do this. It's a dumb idea. If you're going to write a book take the time to read other books, study their craft, see what they do that works. They got published, didn't they?

Read books in the genre you write. Study their styles. Perhaps there's something you like that you can add to yours. Don't copy them exactly, but you can find elements. For example: I really like em-dashes. I learned that from an author. I like to vary my sentences a lot to create mood. I learned that from another author. I would've never learned these things if I hadn't been reading.

Read books about writing. There is so much knowledge to be found in craft books about writing techniques. A few I can recommend are: Go Teen Writers: How to Turn Your First Draft Into A Published Novel by Stephanie Morrill and Jill Williamson, Plot Versus Character: A Balanced Approach to Writing Great Fiction by Jeff Gerke, Self Editing for Fiction Writers by Renni Browne and Dave King, and The Art & Craft of Writing Christian Fiction by Jeff Gerke.


4.) Writing is Way More Complicated Than They Taught Us In School - School didn't teach us about interior monologue, pacing, character development, dumping, exterior and interior goals and on and on. The first time I went to a writers conference I was in shock with all the stuff I didn't know.

Who knew your character had to have a goal throughout the story? Who knew that too many "was" and "were" in a sentence weren't good? Nobody told me this stuff. Though this sounds a bit overwhelming, it makes writing more of an art. Every sentence and word and punctuation is important. But it gets easier. The more you study about the craft of writing the easier and more instinctive it gets.


5.) Read Blogs - Perhaps you don't have the money for craft books right now so read blogs. They're a free resource to a wealth of writer knowledge. You're already reading mine. Posts are usually short and only take a few minutes to read each, and there are blog posts for just about any question you have about writing. If you find a good blog, type into the search bar or check in the labels (big list of words with links to one side of the blog) for what you're looking for.

There are so many good blogs, but here are a few I can recommend: Go Teen Writers (good blog for teens and college students specifically), Chip's Blog, Get it Write Tonight, Mythcreants, and Helping Writers Become Authors.


6.) Go to Writing Conferences - This is a big investment since they usually cost a few hundred bucks not including travel costs, but if you seriously want to take writing all the way and get published I highly recommend go to writers conferences. They are all over the country. The information you learn there directly from professionals in a live setting is immeasurably helpful for your writing.

Networking is another important thing at conferences. You can meet other writers in person. I met two of my best friends at a writers conference. You also have the opportunity to meet literary agents and editors for publishing companies. You even have a chance to pitch your book there. Many authors have been published because they attended writers conferences (two instances are Bryan Davis and Stephanie Morrill).

Three good conferences I know are the Florida Christian Writers Conference (I've been attending this one for years), The American Christian Fiction Writers conference and One Year Adventure Novel.


7.) First Drafts Always Suck - No matter how great of an author you are, your first drafts will be bad. When you write fresh, it's usually raw story. There's plot holes, bland characters, grammatical errors, and typos galore, but that's completely normal. That's why we have rewrites and editing.

So don't kick yourself too hard if your writing isn't that good in your first draft. When you're a new writer, you'll be constantly learning and improving. Something you wrote a month ago may seem bad, but that's a good thing because you're learning the difference between good and bad writing.


8.) Get Another Set of Eyes - When you get your work to a point where you're confident in it, let other people read it, both non-writers and writers. Get their opinions of your work. They may not all say that your writing is wonderful. Get used to that. Critique is what makes your writing better.

Other people will spot things in your writing that you didn't notice because you're too close to it. Sometimes what someone says is completely untrue because they want to be mean or they alone didn't understand, but if three or more people seem to have the same opinion you'll want to look into it.

I was critiqued at a writers conference for the first time. Putting my work out for other people besides my best friend (who was the one person I've ever let read my books) was terrifying but in the end I improved more and more with the more critique I got. Be fearless and get second opinions.


9.) Be Someone Else's Set of Eyes - Critiquing others isn't just a courtesy but it also helps your writing. When you recognize mistakes in other people's writing, you'll find it easier to find them in your own. Remember to be kind, but honest while critiquing. All praise won't help someone, but putting down their writing is just going to discourage them. Find a happy medium. It's also fulfilling to help another writer out.


10.) Join a Writer Group - Becoming an active part of a group of writers has helped me immensely. In writers groups, you can find critique partners, brainstorm buddies and just have other people who sympathize with your issues, praise you when you hit goals and help you when you get stuck. You can often find good friends. There are online and physical groups. Go Teen Writers has a Facebook group, American Christian Fiction Writers, and Word Weavers are some others I recommend.


11.) Publishing is Hard - It takes a lot of time and persistence and endurance to get published and even keeping your career going after that. To get published you have to submit query letters, cover letters, proposals, and manuscripts that will catch the publisher and/or agent's attention. Getting query letters, cover letters and proposals written take a lot of work on their own. Researching agents and publishers that are interested in your work is another chore, but it's what must be done.

Then after submitting your queries, you have to wait to hear back from them. This will take months for your queries to be reviewed. If you do get accepted there's more waiting to go while your book is readied for publishing, plus marketing your book before, and after it's released to get the sales up. This isn't said to dissuade but to let you know: it's a lot of work, but that's how the business goes. I know a lot of published authors. It is indeed possible to finally be published.


12.) Patience - One of the key virtues of a writer must be patience. It takes months to write a book, then more time for rewrites and editing. It takes months to hear back from agents, publishers and even critique partners. It takes months for platform outlets such as Facebook pages, blogs and twitter accounts to gain following. Patience is paramount for a writer.

Just replace swimming with writing.
In summary, becoming an author is a long, complicated process, but that doesn't mean it's without it's benefits even along the way. I'm not published yet, but I've already received numerous emails and comments from people inspired by my writing I've displayed on my blog. And that's an amazing feeling alone.

I'm hoping one day I can make an update on this post that says I did actually get published, but until then I'll keep writing even if it only inspires a few people. That's enough for me. So to all you writers, keep going. Even if you get picked on or feel discouraged or intimidated just keep writing. If you've got the persistence, you'll get there. :)


What are some things you've learned in your writing journey?

Wonderful Word Wednesday: Crinose




It's Wonderful Word Wednesday again this week's word is a good descriptor. ^ ^

crinose
adjective
1.) hairy.

Example Sentence: Bryce stroked the crinose stem of the daisy with the tip of his finger.

This looks a lot like the daisy Bryce finds in the book. ^ ^

Have you seen or used this word before? What do you think of it?

Tea Tuesday: Enchanted Tea




I'm not really a coffee person. I prefer tea, and I know a lot of fellow writers love tea, too. But have you ever wanted to break out of the Early Grey or English Breakfast norm and try something new? Well, let me help you find some cool new teas! If you need a little hot and flavorful boost to help you reach your writing goal or you're just a lover of tea or you'd like to try some tea but aren't fond of the stereotypical types, these Tea Tuesday posts are for you.

This weeks tea is ... 

*drum roll*

Enchanted Tea



How I found it: I found this tea on the Adagio tea website while browsing through their many fandom blends. This is same tea company I got the Avatar: The Last Airbender set which includes AangKatara and several more fandom blends and BBC Sherlock teas which include Sherlock Holmes (of course ;) ) and John Watson and several more blends. I thought I wouldn't get this tea in time because somehow it went to Miami, Florida. I live in Atlanta. Go figure. But it is here the Tales and Tea Leaves set! It is a set based on Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit books. The tagline for the set is "For those who wander." Enjoy Tolkien fans!

The Tea: This tea certainly tastes Elvish. It reminds me a lot of Constant Comment tea. The orange peel and cinnamon are similar, but the almond oolong, vanilla, and cream make it more smooth. The tagline for the tea says "One cup is enough to fill the stomach of a grown man." I'm not sure about that claim, but it is a pleasant tea. ;) It reminds me more of Rivendell elves as opposed to Lothlorien since it's a warmer and more earthy tea. Perhaps Elrond or Arwen drink something similar.


Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for three minutes and added sugar, cream and extra cinnamon.

How much is it and where can you get it? You can find this tea at the Adagio website. I bought this tea in a sample set which was about $22 including shipping and you get a goodly amount of tea since you only need about a teaspoon per cup.

So how good is it? This is a very tasty tea with a unique flavor and it fits what it represents. Four stars!


Have you tried this tea? What did you think of it? Have you seen or read the Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit? Who's your favorite character?


Bonus! If you are a first-time Adagio customer I can send you a $5 giftcard! Ask in the comments for details! (This is no joke and no catch I seriously can. It's part of the amazingness of Adagio Teas)

Don't forget to vote for the next fandom blend in the polls or comment it here. The options are:
Firefly
Attack on Titan
Doctor Who

Soundtrack Sunday: The Bureau (Assassins Creed)




It's Soundtrack Sunday again! I've just started playing the first Assassin's Creed yesterday and it's really fun. The parkour is good research for my character Bryce. ;) Besides the gameplay, the soundtrack is fantastic. The music fits the middle eastern theme since the game is set near Jerusalem during the Third Crusade. This piece is eerie with some native vocals and instruments and a few techy sounds indicating the Animus. It's a great piece. Check out more cool music in the Soundtrack Sunday YouTube Playlist.

Interview with Matt (Subsapien) 2





Me:
Hello! This week's blog post is a character interview with one of my main character's from my science-fiction series Subsapien. Thanks to everyone who took the time to contribute questions! They're awesome. *smiles, turns to Matt* Hey, Matt.

Matt:
*sitting in the chair next to mine, smiles* Hi, Tori. 

Me:
I've got a bunch of questions to ask you. Are you ready for them?

Matt:
*claps hands together* Let's do this.

Me:
Okay. Great. *looks at laptop* This first one is from Jessie Blomgren: Why do you act the way you do? How do you typically act around others and how does it differ when you're alone?

Matt:
Well ... *inhales, exhales* That's an interesting question. Um ... Let's see. I guess I act the way I do because of how I was raised. Not sure if I feel comfortable about answering the other part. To give you something, I guess I'm about the same alone or with other people. You'll just have read my book. 

Me: 
*nods* This next one is from Emily Colby: Do you ever use a car, or do you just run?

Matt:
I just run because I can't drive a car. The black-jackets and grens don't let graftings use cars. *coils tail around himself like a cat*

Me:
Okay. Here's one from Mrs. Blomgren: What are your morals, beliefs?

Matt:
*frowns* The worst thing you can do as a grafting is betray another grafting. It's even worse than killing one where I come from.

Me:
This next one is from Maggie: If you made it to the Outside, what is the first thing you would do?

Matt:
Try to find my brother. Nothing's more important than that. But I guess if you mean the very first thing, then climb a tree. I've always wanted to. *smiles a little* Good question, Maggie.

Me:
Another from Mrs. Blomgren: Where did you grow up and how were you raised?

Matt:
*runs hand through his hair* I think this was mentioned in the bio, but I'll just say it here. I was raised in a lab by grens. If I obey I get rewards like more food or new clothes, if I don't I get punished by shocks or beatings or no food or solitary. Bryce is the only one that actually cared about me. He kept me fed and got me clothes when I was too weak from lung problems to do it myself. Does that answer the question?

Me:
I think it does. Here's another one from Emily Colby: Why do you call the scientist 'grens'?

Matt: 
*smiles, laughs a little* That's another good one. Me and the other graftings made it up a long time ago. The gr-scientists always wear green lab coats. Scientists was kind of a mouthful for us as kids so we came up with green then it turned to gren because that's how it sounds if we growl it out. *growls* Gren. You see?

Me:
*giggles softly* Here's one from Ruth Blomgren: What did you like to play with when you were little? And do you still like to play with it? 

Matt:
I had some blocks I used to play with as a little kid during Social Time, but I'm too old to have those anymore. They took them away a long time ago. *shrugs*

Me:
*nods* I actually didn't know that one. Author thing. Next question is from Alyssa Greer: What is it like growing up with asthma in the L.G.R.?

Matt:
Hard. The grens want to get rid of any graftings with "flaws" which means blindness, missing limbs, deafness and asthma. I don't know how, but I haven't got thrown into the Bait Pool, and I hope that stays that way.

Me:
Here is one from Cassia Taylor: With Bryce gone, how do you deal with your asthma attacks? 

Matt:
I just deal. *sighs* I mean, there's nothing I can do. They don't happen as much as they used to, but they still happen. I'm okay though.

Me:
*eyes are on my laptop* And here's another one from Ruth Blomgren: What are your opinions on your past? Do you have lots of regrets? Wish you could start over? Or do you wish you could forget everything? Wish someone else had been in your place?

Matt:
I have a lot of regrets, but doesn't everybody? I wish I could've grown up with a normal family 

Me: 
This is the last one from Emily Colby: When the scientists study you, I'm assuming they perform experiments on you? How do you feel about that?

Matt:
I don't like it. It's why I want to leave. They're *shifts in his seat* really painful.

Me:
Also from Ruth Blomgren: Matt, what do YOU think of yourself? Do YOU think you are brave, smart and kind? Do you think you're a hero? Do you think you're deserving of the way people treat you (good or bad treatments)?

Matt:
Let's see. *taps tail on chair* That's a lot of questions. I'm okay. I guess I'm brave, smart, and kind. I try. I don't think I'm a hero, no. I don't think I deserve being treated the way grens treat me. No grafting does.

Me:
Another from Cassia Taylor: What's a moment you're most proud of?

Matt:
Hmm ... Getting flips off walls right for the first time was a big one. Bryce taught me. *smiles*

Me:
Here is one from Cassidy Clayton: Matt, are you a morning person or a night owl?

Matt:
I don't know. I haven't really thought of it. I guess morning person because I like when it's light better than dark.

Me:
Another one I didn't know. This is why we do interviews. The second one from Jessie Blomgren: What do you like to eat?

Matt:
I get fed raw meat, nutribars, and stuff. Graftings can eat raw meat like animals can. We don't get sick. Food I actually like to eat is fish and bacon, but I don't get those much.

Me: 
Another from Mrs. Blomgren: What kind of family do you have (or did you have)? Are they kind and supportive or harsh and crushing?

Matt:
The only family I have is Bryce. I've never met anyone else. *rests forearms on his thighs, laces fingers* They could be dead for all I know. Bryce raised me like I said before.

Me:
This is one from Amy Covel: Ooh. I have a question! As a younger sibling myself, I was wondering what Matt thought about being the younger brother? Does he ever feel jealous of his brother or competitive, or that he has to live up to high expectations?

Matt:
'Nother good question. I don't really feel jealous or competitive of Bryce, but I do feel like I have to live up to high expectations since I'm the Dominant while he's gone. He's better at it than me. Everyone knows it.

Me:
Another from Ruth Blomgren: Do you think you'd be how you are if you never had a brother? How'd your brother influence your strength of character? And do you think you've made him proud?

Matt:
No, I wouldn't be the same. Bryce is my best friend. He's taught me everything. I hope I've made him proud.

Me:
The last one from Alyssa Greer: What is Matt's earliest memory of Bryce?

Matt:
It's fuzzy, but it's when we first met as a little kids like toddlers. Somehow he was in the crate next to mine. We look so much alike it wasn't hard to figure out we were brothers.

Me:
Next question from Ruth Blomgren: Do you think people should follow you or that you're a good leader?

Matt:
Like I said earlier Bryce is the better Dominant.

Me: 
Here's another question from Cassia Taylor: Who would you call your best friend?

Matt:
Bryce, but if you're talking about someone besides family then Ingrid.

Me:
Final question from Ruth Blomgren: What does Matt think of the human lookalike photo?

Matt:
It looks a lot like me. I don't mind it.

Me: 
Final question from Cassia Taylor: Would you trade all your memories for freedom?

Matt:
*looks down* I don't know. That's a tough one. Sometimes yes and sometimes no. It's hard to imagine being a norm. I'd never be a grafting if I didn't come to the L.G.R. I don't know if I want to be a norm.

Me:
And last question: How'd you get your hair to go like that?

Matt:
*looks back at me, puts hand on his hair* Go like what? It's just how my hair goes. I don't do anything with it. I can't even wash it. I only get sprayed down once a month.

Me:
I think she means your anime picture.

Matt:
Yeah well ... take that up with Tori. *points at me*

Me:
*laughs a little* Well that's all the questions. Thanks for answering them, Matt.

Matt:
No problem. This was fun. Nice to have a break from the lab. *chuckles, smile fades*

Me:
It'll work out soon. *pats this shoulder*

Matt:
I'm trying to trust you, but you make hard.

Me:
*smirks* Thank you everyone who contributed questions. If you have any more, post them in the comments. I can use them for a future interview. ^ ^ I hope you enjoyed this one! Bye.

Matt:
Later.

What do you think of Matt? Do you have any further questions for him?

Wonderful Word Wednesday: Equanimity




It's Wonderful Word Wednesdays again, and I have a really fun word. ^ ^

equanimity
noun
1.) mental or emotional stability or composure, especially under tension or strain; calmness; equilibrium.

Example Sentence: "Your equanimity was quite impressive during that exchange," Brian said.

Brian having to keep equanimity during his own stressful situation
with another writerr's character. XD 

Have you seen or used this word before? What do you think of it?

Tea Tuesday: Second Breakfast




I'm not really a coffee person. I prefer tea, and I know a lot of fellow writers love tea, too. But have you ever wanted to break out of the Early Grey or English Breakfast norm and try something new? Well, let me help you find some cool new teas! If you need a little hot and flavorful boost to help you reach your writing goal or you're just a lover of tea or you'd like to try some tea but aren't fond of the stereotypical types, these Tea Tuesday posts are for you.

*drum roll*

Second Breakfast



How I found it: I found this tea on the Adagio tea website while browsing through their many fandom blends. This is same tea company I got the Avatar: The Last Airbender set which includes AangKatara and several more fandom blends and BBC Sherlock teas which Sherlock Holmes (of course ;) ) and John Watson and several more blends. I thought I wouldn't get this tea in time because somehow it went to Miami, Florida. I live in Atlanta. Go figure. But it is here the Tales and Tea Leaves set! It is a set based on Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit books. The tagline for the set is "For those who wander." Enjoy Tolkien fans!

The Tea: Everybody who is anybody in the Tolkien fandom knows that Hobbits eat seven meals a day. Second breakfast is a very important one (too bad Aragorn doesn't know about this). I think this tea could perhaps go well with nice crispy bacon. The green chai gives the blend an earthy spicy flavor. The Apple tea was probably inspired by the one Aragorn throws to Pippin and the cream makes the tea a bit smoother. If anything this tea fits the scene perfectly in Fellowship of the Ring. XD


Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for three minutes and added just sugar. The tea already has a natural cream flavor and I usually don't add cream to green teas.

How much is it and where can you get it? You can find this tea at the Adagio website. I bought this tea in a sample set which was about $22 including shipping and you get a goodly amount of tea since you only need about a teaspoon per cup.

So how good is it? This tea was nice, but not especially thrilling to me. It reminded me a bit of Barrels of Tea (both have chai and apple), but it still was good and Hobbit-y. :)


Have you tried this tea? What did you think of it? Have you seen or read the Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit? Who's your favorite character?


Bonus! If you are a first-time Adagio customer I can send you a $5 giftcard! Ask in the comments for details! (This is no joke and no catch I seriously can. It's part of the amazingness of Adagio Teas)

Soundtrack Sunday: Viverti (Mattia Cupelli)




It's Soundtrack Sunday again and I found this gorgeous piece. It's a favorite of a member of a writers group I'm a part of. Being a pianist myself I also adore this piano piece. It has some epic strings and some techno in some areas. The track is peaceful, inspirational and a bit nostalgic. It's so beautiful it's made me cry. I hope you all enjoy. To find more epic soundtrack music, check out my Soundtrack Sundays YouTube playlist.
