Hello, people! Sorry its been a while since I last published a post. I’ve been very busty with writing projects of all types, plus learning a new instrument and balancing […]
I’ve been doing some reading…
First-person is a point of view (POV) where the reader sees and feels everything through the eyes of one character. The words “I,” “my,” and “me” are some of the […]
“Did you know J. R. R. Tolkien wrote the Lord of the Rings Trilogy by the seat of his pants?”
The opinions have been gathered! Many writers, professional and aspiring, have chimed in their opinions on plotting their novel or writing by the seat of their pants (writing without any planning).
