Writing Roots

S28E5 – Preparing Your Environment for Writing

Writing a great book requires its own form of privacy or solitude – a room or corner where you can be creative, productive, relaxed, and not be distracted by people or things while you write. – David K Jeremiah

S27E8 – How Do I Transition From One Scene to Another?

It’s like a piece of music; you never lose sight of the theme. Each scene pushes off to the next like music builds and you can almost hear the next chord progression, so it has a strict structure, which is very compelling. – David Strathairn

S27E7 – How Do I Know Where My Story Begins?

Writing the opening lines of a story is a bit like starting to ski at the steepest part of the hill. You must have all your skills under control from the first instant. – Marion Dane Bauer

S27E6 – Can I Use Swear Words in My Novel?

Writing for adults often means just increasing the swearing – but find an alternative to swearing and you’ve probably got a better line. – Steven Moffat

I am the master of all the words, and F*** is the best one. – Tumblr user headspace-hotel
