Have a nice day.
Mark Wilcox.

Go on, keep moving

One thing (among many) that I have learned over the years, and continue to learn, from reading fiction and observing the changes proposed by my editors, is the importance of pace.Learning how to write a narrative with the right pace is one of the most crucial skills an author can acquire.Get it wrong and you are jeopardising your chances of success. Get it right and you are onto something because it keeps the reader turning the pages.I take a lot of time over editing to ensure that the pace is…See More

Detail, detail, detail...

What turns a story from good to very good? For me, it is that extra something. That attention to detail on the part of the author.Whether it be the description of a place that makes you shiver because you feel the chill air coming off the hills, or a portrayal of a character so real they could easily walk in through the door and you would not be surprised, these are the things that give a story something extra.It might be a new idea, or a twist on an old idea, that starts you thinking, or a…See More

Stay with me, dear reader, this is going to be good!

One of the key things that I tell my creative writing students is that the opening lines of their stories are crucial.Why? Because harassed publishers, overworked agents and readers with a mass of choice all need grabbing within moments of picking up the book/short story/manuscript.It is like the writer reaching out of the page, clutching the reader by the lapel and saying ‘don’t you dare go away, this is going to be good!’So, here are some of my thoughts on starting short stories by creating…See More
