The Zen of Organized Writing: 5 Steps You Can Take Today

The Zen of Organized Writing: 5 Steps You Can Take Today | Litteris | Scoop.it
How can you organize your life as a writer so you can spend more time writing?

What’s the best way to manage writing alongside other projects?

Why is it so hard to balance the act of writing with the day-to-day demands of life?

I think you’ll agree most writers have to achieve more than write every day–we have to do things like plan our research, market our writing, find a quiet place to work.

What Happens When You Try to Read Moby Dick on Your Smartphone?

What Happens When You Try to Read Moby Dick on Your Smartphone? | Litteris | Scoop.it
These days, when most of us think of a “book,” we have in mind something around nine inches by six inches, with mass market paperbacks shaving off an inch or two in each dimension. But digital reading has redefined presuppositions about size and, more importantly, about what format is best for what’s being read: text messages, news articles, textbooks or fiction. Conventional wisdom (including my own) typically suggests that serious digital reading calls for ample screen size (at least a tablet or e-reader), while one-off encounters with sports updates or tweets are fine on mobile phones. But these rules of thumb are crumbling as users increasingly abandon larger mobile devices like Kindles and Nooks in favor of an all-purpose phone. While sales of e-readers and tablets are slowing, the real growth is in smartphones. In 2014, 1.2 billion smartphones were sold worldwide. With many newer generations of smartphones offering bigger screens – along with continued advancements in screen resolution – readers are turning to their mobiles for more and more of their onscreen reading. Does size matter? For most of us, yes. When the reading platform size shrinks, it’s harder to focus on complex arguments or story lines. No wonder [...]

Storytelling: An Exercise In Empathy

Storytelling: An Exercise In Empathy | Litteris | Scoop.it
Though I had been practicing these techniques for a fair amount of time, it took Richard Russo’s statement to bring the realization that what I was practicing was empathy. I wasn’t stealing characteristics while people-watching, or inventing a persona, or using myself as material — I was empathizing.

Cicero said, “Glory follows virtue as if it were its shadow.” Practice the virtue empathy, then, and reap the benefits of the glorious novel.

All self-publishing authors are indie, but some may be more indie than others.

A Quick Guide to Beta Reader Etiquette - Helping Writers Become Authors

A Quick Guide to Beta Reader Etiquette - Helping Writers Become Authors | Litteris | Scoop.it
Writers love their beta readers. But let’s be honest. Beta readers also kinda drive us crazy. Some of them are perfection: as polite, professional, and talented as any in-house editor. But others… well, let’s just say their lack of tact and their questionable knowledge of the craft can sometimes leave us howling in frustration. Why isn’t there a manual for beta reader etiquette–for how beta readers should conduct themselves and how writers, in turn, should respond?
