Need some help with research? Try these great ideas...

So, you’re halfway through writing your novel, you’ve ticked all the boxes for character arcs, conflict and suspense, setting… except you’re stuck because you can’t find that crucial bit of detail on the internet.Or you have found it, but on some dodgy website that’s probably over six years old and the details have probably changed tenfold since that time.What to do?Here are my Top 3 tips for research: http://bit.ly/1iZSuOsSee More

Is the art of handwriting dead?

A few years ago, the BBC published an article suggesting that the art of handwriting is in decline (read the full article here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/7907888.stm )                                 This got me thinking. Aside from my own creative writing habits, which fluctuate between scribbling frantically into a well-thumbed notebook and typing just as furiously on the computer, I tried to remember when I’m most likely to handwrite…See More

5 books which you can't have

... not unless you want a slapped wrist.At the end of December, I blogged about 7 books which influenced me growing up. That got me thinking – which books have I read since then which have had an impact on me as both a writer and reader? Which books, to this day, do I recommend to friends telling them ‘You HAVE to read this!’ Which books remain on my bookshelf, to be re-read every couple of years? And which ones wouldn’t I lend to you, because I’d be scared you wouldn’t give them back?Read the…See More

How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb (Or, How does a female writer know this stuff?)

One of the most common questions I’ve been asked at book signings this year is along the lines of ‘You’re female – how do you know anything about guns or how to stop a bomb going off?’It’s a fair question. I haven’t served in the armed forces for a start. Yes, I’m female. The majority of authors writing in my particular genre are blokes that have served their countries in one way or another. Yes, sometimes (on a bad day), I kick myself for not writing under a pseudonym (although that would’ve…See More

Hi Rachel,

 

I'm one of the editors for Noir Nation, and I would love to get some stories from Australia for Issue 2  (Issue 1 will be available Sept 1, 2011).  Looking for short stories and graphic stories (comics).  Maybe you have some, and could also help spread the word?  We start reading for issue 2 on Oct 1.

 

Thank you,

Alan
