How to Write a good novelWriting a good novel
Why write badly? volumes
Poor typing is above all tedious typing. This can be dull because it is too confusing or too logic, or dull because it is hysterical because it is lyrical, or dull because nothing really happens. When I give you a 400-page script of an unreleased novel - something I think is poorly spelled - you can finish reading it, but you will feel the same pain as you do.
It is possible that you have never spelled 80,000 words badly. Boyfriend of a friend's novel. When you ask, you'll find it easy enough to find a really poor novel. I' m talking about a novel by someone who has written a novel in isolation for years that he is sure is a great work of work.
Your boyfriend of a friend's novel can have some redemptive qualities - the strangely beautifully formed phrase, the lost brilliance of the picture. Poor authors still do poorly, because they have many good grounds for doing so. Authors are poor because they stick to the causes of poor typing.
Poor typing is almost always a romantic poetry directed from the Self to the Self. First and last and most admired is the author herself. Whilst poor authors can reread many different works of mythology, they are not able or willing to notice the things that these works do, which their own writings do not.
So, the most perilous kind of writer for evil authors to reread are what I call apology authors - novelists of the kind who seem to allow others to lend or mimic their mistakes. Poor authors defend themselves against a conflict with their own wickedness by referring to other authors with whom they have certain qualities worth defending.
When another writer's work survive with charme, you will never be able to rob it, only mimic it in an awkwardly apparent way. Often the poor author has the feeling of telling a certain tale. Till they tell this particular tale, they have the feeling that they can't go on.
However, because the materials are so near them, they can't play around enough to know how they work. Poor authors often want to re-write a novel by another author that has been published in a different era and under totally different people. Since it' a good work, they see no good why they can't just do it again.
You don't realize that even historic or sci-fi stories are an answer to a certain instant. It is catastrophic for any serious cliché to pretend that the realm is not what it is - or that the realm should still be what it once was. On the other hand, poor authors often use writing to advance a cause or to broaden other people's understandings of a modern societal topic.
Every effort to create literature to make the planet a better, more just place will certainly be doomed. Keeping any value more important than being a good author is risky. In order to change from a skilled author to a great author, you have to take the chance of being - or being seen as - a poor author.
Skills are fatal because they prevent the author from taking the humiliating risks he has to take before he goes beyond his skills. Competent authoring means doing a few magical things for your loved ones; good authoring means running away to join the show. Eventually, the teacher can show you how to do spell casts in a course of creativity; at best he will show you how to be a good wizard; but he also does spells - and you have to study that on your own.
