Friday is here… yet again… and it's that time! This is the weekly instalment of Celebrate The Small Things, hosted by Viklit over at Scribblings Of An Aspiring Author.
This week I'm celebrating the following:
~ I completed reading an anthology of 6 stories based on dystopian/ paranormal/ magic/ fantasy elements, and posted the review on Goodreads
~ On Sunday June 16th, we celebrate Youth Day which means that Monday is a public holiday! Plus it's Fathers Day! Double celebration!
~ This weekend, our city plays host to Top Gear, which will bring thousands of motor enthusiasts and other visitors to our shores, and will inject millions of rands into our city coffers!
~ These 7 writerly nuggets on how to write fiction (from Ernest Hemingway)
1. To get started, write one true sentence.
2. Always stop for the day while you still know what will happen next.
3. Never think about the story when you’re not working.
4. When it’s time to work again, always start by reading what you’ve written so far.
5. Don’t describe an emotion–make it.
6. Use a pencil.
7. Be brief.
He makes it sound so simple, doesn't he?
