Book Review

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine: A Novel by [Honeyman, Gail]

This book is amazingly interesting. From the moment I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. I found Eleanor so refreshingly different. She is quirky, honest, naive and witty and she says whatever is on her mind. The story is told in a vivid manner it is almost as if you are right there. Loved it. If you are looking for something that is entertaining and different, I would recommend this book.

Be Open to Critique

As a writer have to develop a thick skin and be open to criticism. If you are a great writer people will love your book. However you have to accept that not everyone will love what you write. Some readers can be harsh with their reviews, so you must be prepared for this. Critique is not always bad because it may help you to be a better writer. Good luck and happy writing.

Should You Write the Way You Speak

Should you write the way you speak? The answer to this varies depending on who you ask. Effective communication is an important part of writing. The reader must be able to understand what you are saying. Not everyone use proper grammar when speaking. This is usually not acceptable in writing. However it is also important not to have writing that comes off too formal or stiff. Don’t fill your writing with a lot of complex words when simpler words could convey the same message. A few is fine but don’t over do it. Your reader wants to keep turning the pages, not constantly consulting a dictionary to understand what you are saying.  Good luck and happy writing.
