Naming Characters – Things to Consider

By Lucy Mitchell


Naming fictional characters is one of those writing activities a non-writer might view as…simple to do. *Sigh* They probably think we pluck a random name out of thin air, sit down to write and bring that newly named fictional person to life.

Ha! If only naming a fictional character was that simple.

This activity is not simple to do. It can take ages to come up with a name that fits your character, their era and the story.

Also, there’s no guarantee you . . .

The Things Bookworms worry about when reading book series

By Lucy Mitchell

As a bookworm I enjoy reading a good book series, I love the excitement of finishing a first book and making a frantic dash onto Amazon to buy the second. I am a big fan of watching an author’s Twitter feed like a hawk for news on when the next book in their series is coming out.

Book series demand a different sort of . . .

Why Writer Friends Are Like Lighthouses The Closer You Get To Publication

By Lucy Mitchell


I am likening the process of getting closer to publishing my book to sailing a small boat across a violent sea at night.

It doesn’t matter which route you take to get to publication. From the tweets and blog posts I read from other writers and authors, we all end up in the same little publication boat; in total darkness, weary and desperately clinging onto something, a life dream of being an author perhaps, with no idea where we are going to end up and cursing ourselves for even thinking about setting off on a journey like this.

So, here we all are, alone in our boat, being tossed about by . . .

Our stories are like the cakes we bake.

Some of us plan our cake making projects with military precision. We stick rigidly to the recipe and put in hours of ingredient preparation. Whilst the rest of us stare at the food cupboard, listen to the gurgle of our gut and chuck in any ingredient that takes our fancy.

This is like writing. Some of us plan our stories in great detail, weave intricate plot threads and write pages of detailed notes. Whilst the rest of us stare at a crack in the wall, drink some strong coffee and then start writing whatever pops into our head.

Some of us will get frustrated during the baking process. Our cakes might . . .

Why You Need to Accept Some of Your Stories Are Being Written For The Future You #MondayBlogs #Writer

By Lucy Mitchell

Here’s a secret about writing which I have discovered – some stories you write will not turn out the way you expected them to because they are meant to be improved and perfected by the future you.

The future you will one day turn the story you are struggling with into something better.

The future you will be able to see why your current thriller isn’t working.

The future you will be better equipped to deal with that troublesome character in your romance novel.

The future you will do big things with that draft book you have just shoved into drawer.

Sometimes we just need to . . .

How To Handle The Story That Keeps On Giving

By Lucy Mitchell

Have you ever experienced writing a story that gives you more than just an interesting tale and a collection of fictional people?

Let me explain.

Last week, in my blog post titled, The Story Which Wants To Show You Other Things, I spoke about how, whilst working on a draft of a story, I had stumbled across a strange hole in a fictional wall. In my story a hole had appeared and in the initial drafts I had completely ignored it.

For the first time in my writing career I decided to . . .
