Great Greek Wednesdays becomes how libraries help writers

Not only as faithful patrons of the Public Library system, set up by Benjamin Franklin for civic purposes, but also as starving artists…

Here is How (NOT) to Write a Practice Novel, based on my experience writing Creator: Friend or Foe, Book 1: Beginnings; Draft #6!

At the end of September, on the 26th, in fact, of 2014, nearly two full years after NaNoWriMo 2012, for which I wrote the very very Rough draft of C:FoF, I finally gave up and agreed to let a few friends see my draft, which remained persistently terrible after 5 rewrites.

But I think I know a bit more of what not to do now:


This is where it gets hairy -as in splitting hairs. After Draft #5, I read up on How to Write a Novel, and discovered that one should have only One Hero(ine), not two or more, per novel. So, along with changes in the pov and scene divisions, all made on paper to a hardcopy of Draft #5, as I like to spread all the chapters out and see them lined up pages all-together (not yet possible on a pc), I began books 1 and 1.5, along with shuffling chapter 0 out to Book 2: Reposo. Nevertheless, for some reason, here is a 6th draft of Book1, which incorporates more cute furry animal displays, more sarcastic replies, and much less philosophy than I would have liked, but I bowed to popular pressure:

Draft # 6 which was in Progress:

So, it turns out that I am definitely not a pantser: well, I can get the words written, but not have them follow any sort of a plot, unless I plan ahead.  More on my continuing striving with writig next time, friends:

    1. Exactly!! 🙂
      I may write badly, for the moment, but I (B’H & Im Y’H) shall improve! 🙂
      Even as a Computer Science major, I had to jot verses down on bits of green and white lined printer paper while debugging code with blurry eyes!
      Many Safe Air Hugs!
