Writing Advice


Wherever the law is, crime can be found.
--Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

The Atlantic has a feature they call ENTERTAINMENT BY HEART containing much advice on the many aspects of writing. I have read several of the articles, and even though I do not agree with all the advice offered by the authors being interviewed, I feel that I have gained quite a bit of new and valuable knowledge.

Now if I can only retain a portion of what I have read.


Did You Know . . .?

Each time you see a full moon you always see the same side. If the Moon didn't spin at all, then eventually it would show its far side to the Earth while moving around our planet in orbit. However, since the rotational period is exactly the same as the orbital period, the same portion of the Moon's sphere is always facing the Earth.


On this day in 1928 The Okeechobee Hurricane formed and began crossing through the Bahamas. Due to preparations, minimal damage or loss of life occurred, with 18 fatalities reported.

Then, early on September 17, the storm made landfall near West Palm Beach, Florida with winds of 145 mph. In the city, more than 1,711 homes were destroyed.  There were more than 4079 fatalities.
