Writing Down the Bones


This book has been out there for a few years and I have to be honest, I've never read it.  But I hear authors talk about what is in the book all the time.  But for me - no offense - the idea seems self-evident.  But then, that's how I approach writing anyway. 

As Lee Child once told me (and a bunch of other folks at a conference) that he is an instinctual writer.  Not saying I'm the next Lee Child, but at least we approach the process in the same way.

But the best advice a writer ever gave was:  "Put butt in chair with hands on keyboard.  That's how you write a novel."

I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Bless you!

An interesting discussion is worth comment.
I think that you ought to write more about this subject, it might not be a taboo subject
but usually people don't speak about these subjects. To the next! All the best!!
