  1. Welcome, it's nice to meet you!
  2. ๐Ÿ˜ณ I have killed some of them off in gruesome and painful ways. I don't know what that says about me. Not sure I wish to find out. ๐Ÿ˜
  3. @suspensewriter, is right. You need to get into their head and figure out the whys to help you develop your character. Maybe you bad guy believes he is fighting for a just cause. I'm not saying it is, just that he believes it. Maybe your lame guy has always seen things done in a certain way and it worked. Perhaps the one time someone did it differently was a bad experience for him, and now he believes failure will happen if things are done differently. It does not need to be a perfect reason or even a good one. It only needs to fill two things. (Or more if someone thinks I missed something) 1) It makes at least enough logical sense that we (the reader) can follow and understand it. We don't have to agree, but we must be able to comprehend it. 2) The character must absolutely, unwaveringly believe it. They can be converted to something different in the story, but changing what they think without a sound logical reason is a big no-no. It's way too confusing for the reader and will end in people closing your book before they finish reading it.
  4. @Shamrock your question is hidden inside this thread. You might get better answers if you start a thread just for this. ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. I don't know how good this guy is, although, I know he specializes in Amazion KDP stuff. Anyway, he might explain it a little better. Here is another one on why keywords are important.
  6. Not the book!! Keywords are the words someone might type in the search bar to find your book. @Accord64 or Lynn might be able to explain that better.
  7. ๐Ÿคจ Ok, I get the sexual references, but sister? What if I write a book about twin sisters? What then?
  8. Thanks, @Ragamuffin_John! I am currently caring for family members with dementia, and this is something to think about for later on. As for your situation, my advice is to have an open conversation with your family member about what you both want when you pass away. I have helped to plan a few funerals with people who knew they did not have much longer left, and while it can be uncomfortable for some at first, it is easier as you go along. For many, it is a great relief to know that their wishes will be carried out. And don't make my mistake! Eulogies were something I never thought about for the first funeral I planned, and then everyone wanted to get up and talk. That can be a problem if you have a lot of people.
  9. Hate? More like I forget about them and have to take them out after the fact. Then I feel the need to beat my head on the wall.. a lot!
  10. Here is a list of filter words for everyone that has been asking what they are. (Warning, this might not be a Christian site.) https://dianaurban.com/words-you-should-cut-from-your-writing-immediately I would love to quote this, but I can't find a quote option on my phone. ๐Ÿ˜ณ ๐Ÿ˜•
  11. Um... That might be something to ask @lynnmosher. I only use mine on here, and my documents. It works in my documents. And come to think of it, it has worked on Oodal. So, I guess three places.
