316Re: [ByzantiumNovumCulture] Book
- May 1, 2012Lady Anna;
I think perhaps that you sell yourself short. I didn't think I could
write well either, but I found that doing so in short stories, with a
friend, that can be linked together it is much easier and better. My
first book was a science fiction book, and I did it by myself. My
wife typed it up for me, and I have since worked it a bit to make it
more interesting. Another trick is to turn on a tape recorder when
you are telling a story to another person. Then write down what you
said in telling the story. I could never write without that
assistance, but when I tell a "Sea Story" to a friend, and I record
it, the written version sounds pretty good.
I had heard that one can publish from the internet. As the tale draws
to a close, I will have to look into such. Thank You for the heads up!
