    F IS FOR FACTS - Writers Tricks of the Trade - Episode 12

    in Writing

    In the old Dragnet show, Sgt. Joe Friday used to say, "The facts, ma'am, only the facts." But when a writer is creating a book or story part of their process is making sure to check facts,particularly when they are setting out a particular set of circumstances. If you get it wrong, some of your readers will know and possibly spread the word. The internet is a wonderful source of information, but if you can't find what you want, let your fingers do the walking. Once you've figured out who might have the information you need, pick up the phone and call. It might be a friend, or the public relations division of a police department, hospital, public entity or any number of possibilities. When Morgan St. James was writing "Betrayed," she needed to know what would happen in the late 1950s if an inmate in an Illinois prison was beaten to a point where they had to be on lifesupport. The information was not readily available on the internet, so she called the public relations department at the prison in Illinois and discovered her answer, The Public Relations officer researched her and called back with the information that the policy had changed over the years. What would have happened now, wasn't the cae then. Back then the inmate would have been kept in the prison infirmary. So, St. James was able to portray the scene correctly for the era.


    Okay,let's assume you've got the facts, details and any other pertinent information. How much does your reader REALLY want to know? Are you overwriting and boring them with details fans of your genre really are not interested in?Is the technical information much more than they care to read? Do they want the story to just keep moving?


    In a lively discussion authors Morgan St. James, Dennis N. Griffin and Eric James Miller will share their knowledge and experience when it comes to, "Just the facts, ma'am."

    Writers Tricks of the Trade-USING YOUR EXPERIENCES AND EMOTIONS-Episode 11

    in Writing

    One of the most important qualities a fictional character can possess is to seem real to the reader.


    Forget just stringing together a series of words describing physical attributes and how the character carries out routine or off-the-chart situations—perhaps spiced with inner thoughts. There is more to creating someone with feelings and emotions and a physical presence. Doing that doesn’t have to be daunting. Because the reader sees events through the eyes of these players in the story, at all costs avoid moving paper dolls or overblown figures through the scenes.


    Authors Morgan St. James, Dennis N. Griffin and Eric James Miller share their techniques for transferring their own experiences and emotions to the characters they create.

    Time Management Tips & Tricks/Gly Solutions-Dr. Tonya Henderson

    in Business

    This week on The Networking Diva Hour, log in to hear some Tips & Tricks of Time Management.  Chances are good that at some time in your life,you've taken a time management class, read about it in books, and tried to use an electronic or paper based day planner to organize, priortize and schedule your day. "Why, with this knowledge and these gadgets, you may ask,"do I still feel like I can not get everything I need to do done? The answer is simple.  Everything you ever learned about managing time is a complete waste of time because it does not work! Before you can even begin to manage time, you must learn what time is. A dictionary denfines time as "the point or period at which things occure." Put simply, time is when stuff happens.
