I Have Fingers of Thunder

Johny Thundersbeard does not procrastinate about writing

Steam Punk Word Painting

“Consider using words like gush, mumbling, whirr, and plunk. These onomatopoetic terms will add sensory detail as well as provide readers with more complete understanding.”

“Understatement prevents writing from becoming melodramatic or overwrought. For example, a long diatribe on the evils of nuclear weapons might actually turn readers off, since they already know the horrific destruction these weapons cause.”

I’ve turned 38. I should have had a book or two under my belt now, you’d think. The only brightsiding I can bring to bear is that at least I have a novel plotted and started with many more plotted too. Today, because I am 38 now, and I should really be more adept at this writing gig, I wrote 81 words on my light dark-fantasy novel.

They weren’t the worst words I’ve written at least.
