carleenbrice @authordlsparks @deegospel I like spreadsheets. And notebooks. My favorite way to track stuff in a draft is highlighters #blacklitchat -9:52 PM Jul 24th, 2011

BernadetteDavis We have 1 last question for @deegospel … Tell us what’s the most int. ? you’ve had on tour so far. #blacklitchat -9:52 PM Jul 24th, 2011

BernadetteDavis Thanks @deegospel for sharing some of the backstory of “A Good Excuse to Be Bad” and writing tips tonight … #blacklitchat -9:52 PM Jul 24th, 2011

carleenbrice RT @deegospel: a6: for that reason. lol. i am a mom. i know how super we are. we can use those skills to solve mysteries. we do it anyway #blacklitchat -9:51 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel @authordlsparks lol i have a notebook, too. i handwrite a lot of my first draft #blacklitchat -9:51 PM Jul 24th, 2011

BernadetteDavis RT @deegospel: a6: for that reason. lol. i am a mom. i know how super we r. we can use those skills to solve mysteries. … #blacklitchat -9:50 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel a6: also i’m a tougher person, because i’m a mom. i wanted to see that power in a heroine, ergo Angel’s creation #blacklitchat -9:50 PM Jul 24th, 2011

authordlsparks I don’t do the spreadsheet *blush* but I do have a nice semi-neat notebook LOL! @deegospel #blacklitchat -9:50 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel a6: my fave shows The Closer, Rizzoli & Isles aren’t moms. I knew I would heighten the conflict if she was one. #blacklitchat -9:49 PM Jul 24th, 2011

authordlsparks I agree! RT @deegospel: great writing tips in tonight’s #blacklitchat -9:49 PM Jul 24th, 2011

Thonnia @deegospel excellent tip. #blacklitchat -9:49 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel a6: for that reason. lol. i am a mom. i know how super we are. we can use those skills to solve mysteries. we do it anyway #blacklitchat -9:48 PM Jul 24th, 2011

Thonnia RT @deegospel: a5: readers lose interest in a character that talks about themselves. if you can switch the I to them… you’re in #blacklitchat -9:48 PM Jul 24th, 2011

ILC1 I can’t write these tips fast enough #blacklitchat -9:48 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel @authordlsparks true. it also helps me and my editor during edits. i keep my outline in an xl spreadsheet #blacklitchat -9:47 PM Jul 24th, 2011

BernadetteDavis Q6 for @deegospel I love mysteries, but it seems very few women protagonists are mothers. Why did you make Angel a mom? #blacklitchat -9:47 PM Jul 24th, 2011

FarrahRochon@BernadetteDavis: Um, I’m pausing a moment to save these tips … 🙂 #blacklitchat” [I know, right?] -9:47 PM Jul 24th, 2011

BernadetteDavis Um, I’m pausing a moment to save these tips … 🙂 #blacklitchat -9:46 PM Jul 24th, 2011

authordlsparks I do it, then as my characters grow I can go back and make notes keeping the plot tight @BernadetteDavis @carleenbrice #blacklitchat -9:46 PM Jul 24th, 2011

carleenbrice RT @authordlsparks: @carleenbrice Basically you are just using 1-2 sentences that sum up a chapter, something you can work from and stay on track #blacklitchat -9:45 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel a5: so i worked at developing a character that was universal. it’s working. i even have male fans #blacklitchat -9:45 PM Jul 24th, 2011

BernadetteDavis RT @deegospel: @me a5: also in my writing workshop under CP I learned how to hide the I. Its another writers trick… #blacklitchat -9:43 PM Jul 24th, 2011

carleenbrice RT @FarrahRochon: @carleenbrice @deegospel I don’t go too deep. Just enough to get a framework of scene. There’s room for spontaneity. #blacklitchat -9:43 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel @BernadetteDavis a5: It’s the best way imo to convert Angel’s POV into every reader #blacklitchat -9:43 PM Jul 24th, 2011

carleenbrice @deegospel That makes sense. I like a skeleton outline #blacklitchat -9:43 PM Jul 24th, 2011

FarrahRochon @carleenbrice @deegospel I don’t go too deep. Just enough to get a framework of scene. There’s room for spontaneity. #blacklitchat -9:43 PM Jul 24th, 2011

carleenbrice RT @deegospel: @carleenbrice a4 i felt like that when i plotted 2 much the scene/sequel works more like a skeleton. i discover in the writing #blacklitchat -9:43 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel @BernadetteDavis a5: also in my writing workshop under CP I learned how to hide the I. It’s another writer’s trick… #blacklitchat -9:43 PM Jul 24th, 2011

authordlsparks I know what you mean @carleenbrice but @TananariveDue gave a good idea of creating a beat sheet….like movies and I love it. #blacklitchat -9:42 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel @BernadetteDavis a5: no, as a reporter i write in 3rd person, so switching to 1st frees me a little #blacklitchat -9:42 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel @carleenbrice a4 i felt like that when i plotted 2 much the scene/sequel works more like a skeleton. i discover in the writing #blacklitchat -9:41 PM Jul 24th, 2011

carleenbrice @FarrahRochon @deegospel Two votes for scene & sequel, so I’ll definitely be thinking about it starting tomorrow a.m. #blacklitchat -9:41 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel a4: i’ve been a book awards judge and a book reviewer for over a decade. story structure is big for me #blacklitchat -9:40 PM Jul 24th, 2011

carleenbrice @deegospel It feels like I’ve already written it & now I’ve got to write it again #blacklitchat -9:40 PM Jul 24th, 2011

BernadetteDavis Q5 from @ILC1 “Was it challenging writing in first person?” #blacklitchat -9:39 PM Jul 24th, 2011

carleenbrice @deegospel I find that if I spend too much time outlining, when it comes time to actually write the scene I’m bored #blacklitchat -9:39 PM Jul 24th, 2011

deegospel @FarrahRochon it does. i have a tween daughter. i can’t keep up with everything, but i can keep up with my book. lol #blacklitchat -9:39 PM Jul 24th, 2011
