This collection contains five tips on how to use summary (telling) correctly, keeping your protagonist active, finding time to write and whether or not you should try to self publish.
Writers are alway told "show, don't tell," but that's not always right. Show & Tell discusses when you shouldn't use summary (telling) and when you shouldn't.
The Most Common Intermediate Mistake & Fixing the Most Common Intermediate Mistake focus on what makes a protagonist active, and how scene-sequel structure can force a lazy protagonist to get off his butt and run your plot!
A Time to Write bursts the myth of "finding" time.
And Are you the Next American Idol? (revised!) deals with the question of whether or not you should self-publish your novel.
