How to know if you are a good WriterI mean, how do you know you're a good writer?
That is a very wide response, but timing really is the distinction between the sucking authors and the ever better ones. I' m optimistic to say 80% on a very, very good today when I've been working on something for a while - 85%-90%. Doing good edits, giving good feedbacks, moving back and forth, workshoping, can refine it by another 10-15%, so bullshit doesn't get much better and can be annoying.
I have found the best way to the lab is when I was in collegiate with 20+ other authors and the task was 10 pg, 3x for the term. You' d be reading your play out loud and then the category would have at the duplicates you had provided, asking queries, propositions, explanations, along with the professor---Raymond Federman, Irving Feldman, Carlene Hatcher Politics--when I take classes/TAing for them--would go at my work as well.
One of them gave me the best commendation I ever received for my literacy through another teacher. Some years from some of the grades I was called because I had rescued their work at home and they had just dropped a piece - I still have a crate in my book/writing room.
I' ve gotten better by learning writing, even if they were only newcomers. And I knew that there are good authors who devote themselves to the time and works of others, even if they only read. Poor authors have great idea and don't really care about the work of other peoples.
A good writer is obsessive whether he is himself or someone else. You want to see, enjoy good handwriting and if necessary do it yourself. You take your free and easy way to write. You' re an insatiable reader. I' m reading five novels a weeks because I' m very interested in it. I' m reading good material mainly, but I'm enforcing my literature legislature with whole filth--I call it bubble gum series.
that somehow made me seriously research play dates in a triangulars. It is Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon - what it's about, but 400pgs in, I'm still not sure what it's about - but it sticks together as a whole, so I'll go on for the next 500pgs. I' ve seen at least 25,000 comics and I' ve authored at least 500, but what they do is show you design and shape and dialogue.
Stopping at X-Treme X-Men, I chose not to devote myself to straight forward cartoon composing, although I've published a few graphical fiction because I enjoy the limitations of the cartoons. In essence, there is a scripture on these universes, where at the beginning of the book everything that is statute and at the end must be statute-que.
Star Trek Universumsbibel is a separate work. It' the opposite pole to me of imaginative lettering, for a novelist. I read and read 100 classic stories for a school project - War & Peace, Anna Karenina, memory of past things, thick, intensive, hard, they toss on someone's toes. I' ve just completed Creativity Inc. on Pixar Studios, Grit by Angela Duckworth, a Harvard Business Review on the implementation of business strategies, another on Facebook Marketing, innovation about academics.
My upcoming attraction listing includes a new volume on Spiral Dynamics, Daymond John's Rise and Grindand the Power of Broke and several educational and children/development resources. I' m still working through a workbook and a CD kit, music appreciation and I'm going to walk through the Columbia bookshop and collect one or two of my classrooms that I don't attend or don't teach.
Then I' m gonna have to work 10 lessons a week. That' all. Sentence as you mean it, then you are suffering by having to spell up the good material (my curse of typing, even though I am typing reasonably fast/well. I' m a writer with so much to typ.
