Happy new year to everyone. It’s 2016 now…at least according to our Gregorian calendar, which is used globally.
However, not everyone solely relies on the Gregorian calendar. This article gives nice notes on non-Gregorian calendar systems throughout the world (Fun fact: the new year in the West didn’t always begin on January 1.)
People have always wanted to know what time it is, and right now, it is a time for new beginnings.
I’ve read a lot of writing advice over the past years, but one piece of advice from my favorite author Larry Correia stuck out the most: “Be prolific.”
When you buy a hard drive, you see the size proudly advertised on the packaging. “1 TB,” it proclaims. Enticed, you buy it. When you take it home, open it, and plug it in, you check the size…and it’s only 931 GB. “What the hell?” you find yourself thinking.
However, the manufacturer did not lie to you at all.
I was absentmindedly going through Baen Books’ website, just to take a look. I found that virtually every book I clicked on had an exciting description that promised a world of action.
New York Times bestselling author Larey Correia has an excellent post from a few months ago talking about the merits of planning out your story (outlining) versus diving right in (pantsing.)
As for me? I employ a hybrid approach. I plan out the story at first, just to see where it’s going. When I get impatient and want to write the thing, though, I stop the outline in the middle and start pantsing. Quite a satisfying thing, if you ask me.
This young woman illustrates the benefits of not pantsing.
Don’t use Comixology at all. It is the epitome of slow and unreliable.
