I'm using a new program to help with the final editing process. It runs the story through and points out all the grammar flaws, spellings, word usage and then updates some words to a creative level that I missed in the writing process.

After using the software I'll send the book on for review to a few agents to see if any are interested in representing my work. Keeping my fingers crossed. Wish me well and keep me in your thoughts as I slog through this demanding writing and publishing process.

Get Out of the House and Write

One of the best things about writing is you can do it anywhere at anytime. Every now and then I'll move my office to Java Joey's (Our local expensive coffee house :) in the summer they have a great outdoor patio with tables, umbrellas and a nice fountain right in the middle of the patio. On occasion I'll even set up in Mickey D's and have coffee and their oatmeal. I can get some really good ideas for my cast-of-Character's.

No matter where you write your main tool is always with you. Your imagination. When you get out of your routine and set up at a remote site it can turn out to be a really good stimulant to move your story. In some cases of course it can be a distraction so just keep on working :)

Cast of Characters

Writing a fiction story and turning it into a cohesive novel is hard work. It's something you create from nothing. Writing isn't just placing word after word on a blank page its looking at a blank page and developing scenes and dialogue. When you place a character's name on a page it's as though you created a new life. Believe it or not a character has a past, present and future place on the stage you create to tell your story. In the context of a story you may never meet a character's family, friends or acquaintances but they have them. An author always has them in mind if not on the pages of his story.

My new novel has a large cast of character's. It's complicated to track who is who sometimes. When I create a character I always complete a character profile. I know their religion or lack thereof. I know their politics and if they smoke or not. If they are in great shape or have a life threatening disease...and so on. As soon as I have a name for the character I write it on a yellow legal pad so I can track where they fall within the total cast of characters. The only other info I note on the legal pad list by their name is their age and what chapter number they first appear. The legal pad helps me keep on track with who is who within the emerging story.
