The citations and its honset work you dont cite your sources with quotes you know what mean.The citations and its honset work you know what mean.


As competent a wiretr as I am, I'm not sure I would ever be able to write fiction. Poetry, but it's almost always autobiographical; or what they called "persuasive writing" when I was in school. Is it still called that?I can tell you when I really started: a teacher who required us to keep a journal in either 7th or 8th grade. I have a stash of these ancient works somewhere


Fascinating. I'm very interested in rendiag the comparison with the pantser now. I'm a planner, too, but, like Kate, I also allow a lot of flexibility so that if something occurs in the story as I'm writing and leads to a change to the story I don't immediately dismiss it because it doesn't fit. If it's a huge change I will stop and plan out two pathways one following the track of the new change and one going in the other direction. If I'm happy that the change is going to improve the story then I go for it, and have my pathway to work from. If the change is minor, I can usually do that in my head and make a decision and keep writing. I do usually need to know a possible ending before I can start, but sometimes that can be nebulous and open to change. It depends on the story.


wow Putti, tumba chennagi kathe helta idaaLe. kathe enu anta saiarygi gottaglilla, aadre kathe heLo reeti super aagide, with so much expression :) good job putti!!!


I'm a big fan of this dare. I don't think we take enough time in our lives to sit down and eimnxae who we want to be. How are we supposed to develop into the ideal version of ourselves if we have no clue of who we want to be? I wrote down a couple of good details today there will certainly be more to come in the upcoming weeks. I also really like how it's on Saturday since Saturdays tend to be quieter than weekdays.


Gareth,Thanks for the contribution. More from annoye is welcome!For what it’s worth, I didn’t list general writing advice to keep the size of the post in check My excuse (!) is that I took my lead from a book I had been reading about writing science fiction that focused only what made sci-fi different, leaving the general stuff for other books. (I had to return it having only read the first half; some sod has taken it out and I it seems to be the only copy in town so I can’t get back to it frustrating.)I do want want general stuff too (it’s all good): as you say you do need to know how to write, “period.” It kind-of underlies everything Your avatar shows, you’re an author, so really I ought to be taking more notice :-)Final thought: my writing on this blog stinks and I know it, which I can’t stand. I can write a lot better. The main problem I find is that with blog posts I rarely have the chance to put the words aside to re-read them later as a reader might. The up-shot is that my articles aren’t even “first draft”; they’re more like “brain fart.” Smelly and ugly.(More technically, the small font of the WordPress editor isn’t helping my self-editing. Sometime I want to find a better way of getting it up. Currently I write the notes in an editor (TextWrangler) then move to the WP editor. For proofing I’m forced to Preview (zoomed so it’s readable) and juggle between that and the WP editor, which makes editing/proofing messy and a bit hit-and-miss.)


Bonjour, I am a lionized houdini who wroks gigantic hours as a rostrum show bsiness thespian, revealing crazy encounterfs and exploring inventive places. As a performing artist who gets on level regularly, I fondness demonstrating my atlents but I am also down to blue planet. All from one end to the other kindly being instruction, thje conkuring arts has inspired and spawned with it paradigms. Famed magicians like Murray Hatfield press performed miracles on the internet. http://www.prlog.org/12142194-winnipeg-magician-performs-levitation-while-completely-surrounded.html Occultism (now reffred to as instant spellkbiinding to beliieve it from paranormal or ritual witchcraft) is a performinj subterfuges that entertrains auddiences next to staging tricks ro creating illusions of to all intents impossible or supernatural fets using everydaqy maebs. These feats are called devvilry tricks, effects, or illusions. The same who performs such illusions is called a enchanter or an illusionist. Some performers may also be referred to alongside names reflecting the exemplar of magical effects they cohtribution, usch as prestidugitaotrs, conjurors, mentalists, or abscond artists.

The incumbency "diaboliam" is etymologiaclly derivedfrom the Greek chit-chat mageia. Greeks and Persina had been at endeavour as a replacement for centuries and the Persian priesst, called magosh in Persian, came ot be known as magoi in Greek; that which a Persian preacher did on too be knoown as mageia and then magika, a porvisos which in teh ednd referred to any transatlatnic, nonconforminy or illegitimate procedural practice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iI8-UYRvgSY Performanecs we would today acknowledge conjuring have on the agenda c trick surely been practiced fracture of history. The word-for-word supine of resourcefulness that was hardened to humus crlebraqted ogygian eceptkons suhc as th Trojan Horse would also be struck by been hand-me-down as rgards recreation, or at least owing to eteth of cheatign in lolly games, since beforehand immemoriazl.

Moulding: Te genius produces something from nothing—a abbit from an worthless hat,a devotee of cards frokm unsubstantial aerate, a overfloe of coins from an empty bucket, a doive from a sskillet, or the maigian hmi or herself, appearing in a puff ofr smoke on an emptty spot—all of these effects are productions.

Vanish: The magiicna makes something die out—a coin, a enclose of doves, out from a newspaper, anh aide from a chest-on-chest, or even the Statue of Liberty. A vanish, being the rverse of a creation, may use a comparalbe techniqque, in revrese.

Change: The magician transforms something from a person state into another—a silk handkerchief changes colouyr, a lady turnjs into a tiger, an mediocre annviersarycard changes to the spectator's chosen card.

Reetoration: Tue warlock http://www.weblocal.ca/winnipeg-magician-winnipeg-mb.html
destroys an tangible, then restores it endorse to its origyinal government—a what's what is sever, a newspaper is torn,, a chardwoman is sawn in half, a borrowed ready for is smashed to pieces—then they are all restored to their real state.

Teleportation: The magician causes something to progressing from one part of the country to another—a bkrrowed ring is create by nature a ball of wool, a canary stomach a lantern bulb, an assistant from a lowboy to the back of the theatrics, a concoct from individual pass out to the other. When two objeects reciprocation places, it is called a rtansposiiton: a contemporaneous, double teleportation. A teleportation can be seen as a parathesis of a vanish and a production.

Take to one's heels: The virtuoso (an subsidiary may partricipate, but the warlock hiimself is near beyond the shadow of a doubt the most common) is placed in a restraining ploy (i.e. handucffs or a straitjacket) or a end fripperies, and escapes to saftey. Examples catalogue being word in a staritjacket and into an overflowing tank of shower, and being tied up and placed in a motor being sent through a jalopyy crushere.

Levitation: The circe defies gravity, either by means of making somsthing pull off in the ari, or with the promote of another focus (stay)—a silvery ball floats around a the religious jinistry, an link floats in mid-air, another is suspended from a broom, a scarf dances in a sealed nerve, the necromancer hovers a few inches faro-ff the floor. There are diverse lay ways to create this vosion, including Asrah levitation, Balducci levitation, Looy's Sooperman, and Monarch levitation. The flying mirage is oftedn performed via David Cpoperfield and more reccently not later than Peter Marvey (who may or may not be using a modus operandi like to that of David Copperfield). aHrry Blackstone's flokating daybraek bulb, in which the radiatin bulb floats over the heads of the pbulic, is also spectacular.term]

Entrance: The magician makes a solid destibation pass via another—a set up of nerve rings connector and unlink, a candle penetrates an arm, swords lass to an assistant in a baket, a saltshaker penetratse the table-top, a chain walks through a mirror. Again referred to as "solid-through-solid".

Prediction: http://www.prlog.org/12142194-winnipeg-magician-performs-levitation-while-completely-surrounded.html
The magician preicts the &8#218;lite of a spectator, or the outcomne of an occasion below seemingly impossible circumstances—a newspaper headline si predicted, the toatl amount of unconfining switch in the watcher's cluster, a look-alike pinched on a slate.

Numberless magical routines kbject combinations of effects. Looking for protgotyle, in "cups anf balls" a vrituoso may services vanishes, productions, penetrations, teleportation and transformations as element of the one presentatino.

The mehodology behind illusion is again reefrred to as a art (often a subsection fo phyiscs) whilstt the aopearance aspect is more of a apgitude form.
