  1. As usual, great stuff Alice.

  2. Now does what I was saying make more sense?

  3. It does for me, because it’s one of the things my writing lacks. My scenes got no set-up.

    Maybe I could convince someone it’s a fancy-shmancy literary device and get it pubbed…

    (I’m kidding!)

  4. Good stuff, Alice. Thanks for sharing. You have a very clear way of explaining things, which goes great with my muddy way of understanding. : )

  5. May, if I could have convinced anyone it was a fancy literary device to have no anchors, I’d have been published 20 years ago.

  6. Dang. It’s been tried already? Guess I’ll have to go work on it then.

  7. LOL. Of course it’s been tried. When I said I’ve done everything wrong at least once, I wasn’t kidding.

    Seriously, every technique I have posted so far is stuff I learned the hard way. Either I stumbled on a good way to do something through accident, or bought a clue. Apparently writing does not come naturally to me.

  8. But you can tell a story, and IMHO, that counts for more. No story, no book EVER. No writing skills, can improve.

  9. But I LEARNED to tell a story. When I started, I had more style than substance. Of course, I was still a kid back then. I’ve had time for stories to grow on me.
