The United Kingdom is a place where you will like most of the places. London is famous for its beautiful attractions. There are a lot of places to go in the United Kingdom but people like London the most due to its beautiful spots. In the travel agency the UK, most people go and book the tickets for London because its attraction is not enough to complete this place; the people in London are also great. You will never find any kind of biasness over there. You will feel that you’re a part of this place.
I'm a professional web designer and a writer as well. I started my first project as a freelancer this year and in the back of 2019, I was also working for the professional logo design company in Sharjah. Now I'm thinking that to start my own website to provide professional services to my clients on the freelance platform. So it is a good decision to create a new site or should I stick with freelance work?
Greetings community! I launched my illustrated anthology, ' Journey back to Zanzibar' last Summer( Out now on Amazon) and am looking for an agent who is interested in a cross cultural project. The poems are inspired by my own experiences in the UK,Jamaica and ..Zanzibar.
In relation to a novel, have people have found it usual to do an amount of introduction and description (waffle) in the first chapter, which I think is what I usually do, or jump right in to the middle of the action/speech?
I know that in many ways I am very, very lucky. I have the time and space to write, I have written a novel, a play several short stories and poetry. Only the play has been entered into a competition and I haven't sent anything else off yet, not sure why. But my problem is I miss people!! I start each day job hunting and then think 'hang on, aren't you meant to be a writer!' I'm just not sure I can stand the isolation!! I have a good many friends, a husband and a good social life but it's the day-time when everyone else is busy in the real world that gets me. There! I feel better already - but it would be good to hear about other people's experiences.
When I'm writing first draft, I use commas and full stops like machine gun bullets, then go back and take a hard look make changes myself before I get some editing done, (much further along, you can tell I don't edit from my punctuation in these posts)
The first sentance of a book is the most important. Well recently I was horrified to learn that mine was 'clunky'. Does anyone have any ideas on how to (pardon the phrase) 'declunkify' my work? I want to make sure my first sentance flows, its something I've always had trouble with? Can anyone give me any pointers?
It MIGHT be just my computer, but strange things seem to be going on. ALL the comments have disappeared from ALL the "shared works" except for the last one. I happen to know that SOME of the writers of those "shared works" haven't read the latest comments posted.
I notice that on a recent Q&A ("What books would you destroy to avoid them falling into other hands?": https://www.writersandartists.co.uk/question/view/2379) 2 users of this site gave "thumbs down" to Wilhelmina Lyre and to Jimmy Hollis i Dickson.
