Criticism—Yes, It Can Hurt

Andrew McDowell

Once a writer’s work is published it is out there—and at the mercy of the critics. Reviews are what help spread the word about their writing, but the simple fact is that not everyone is going to like it—or at least be glowing with praise. Of course, one would hope they would, but people have different likes and tastes, and so they will find certain things they like—and don’t like—about a particular work. A writer puts hours—years—of passion and hard work into it, and to have it criticized—yes, it can make a writer feel low.

I know. People have posted reviews of Mystical Greenwood over the past three years. Most, I’m happy to say, have enjoyed it. But there have been aspects about it that weren’t to their taste. For example, some thought the language was still too flowery, or didn’t like the alternating points of view, or had trouble…

Lies About Writing

The Writer's Apocalypse

There are some weeks when I sit in front of the keyboard and simply stare at the monitor. That little vertical blinking line tauntingly blips in and out, hypnotizing me, erasing all inspiration I have to write.

Side note, did you know that the vertical blinking line is called an Insertion Point? I would have thought that it had a more exotic name. But sometimes simple is best.

The point of this intro is that I can’t figure out what to rant about for this column. During these times of desperation, I turn to Pinterest and look up writing quotes. For some reason, I think they’ll give me inspiration for a topic. It took some scrolling, but I actually did find something to write about. The lies people tell about writing.

Lie #1: “Someday, you’re going to be someone’s favorite author.”

Let’s face facts, okay? Just because you write, it…

A Better Way to Overcome Fears And Worries

My book Fighting To Win: Samurai Techniques For Your Work And Life had just come out, and I was on a TV show publicizing it. The host said, “I read your book last night. You say in it that in the martial art called aikido you “harmonize” your movements with your opponent’s movements. Can you demonstrate to me what that means?”

hands of Aikido martial artistWe were sitting about three feet apart, facing each other.  I said, “I’ll be happy to.” The host said, “Should we go over there where we have more room?” I said, “This is fine. I won’t have to get up out of this chair. Throw a punch at me as though you are mad at me and want to knock me down. Don’t hold anything back. Really throw a punch.”

The host said, “Are you sure you want me to?” He was a very big, muscular man who…

Count your Lucky Length

Andrew McDowell

Often when works of fiction are discussed, word and/or page count comes up. When you see books on a shelf, one of the first things you’ll notice, apart from the author’s name and book title on the spine, is how thick or thin they are compared to each other. Some people like J. R. R. Tolkien enjoy reading long stories. Others prefer shorter works. What is it about length? Does it matter?

Often when you look at a book’s title page, there will often be a subtitle saying “A Novel” or something similar. “A Novella” and “A Novelette” appear to be less common. Instead perhaps you might see “A Short Novel”. Furthermore, when it comes to defining types of writers we have novelist, poet, essayist, playwright, short story writer, and screenwriter. There are no set terms that I’m aware of for writers of novellas…
