Know One Knows

“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.”

Somerset Maugham

I appreciate this quote that I found on The Write Practice. It made me smile immediately. We’ve narrowed down writing styles but how to create and finish a novel seems to look different for every writer. I mean there are general similarities but when you look take both the whole picture and the details into account, they are vastly different. This, in my opinion, is why writing groups and workshops are so important as writers. With so much diversity in novel writing, other writers are a wealth of information and ideas. How they write, what’s their routine, do they write full time, do they write only when they’re inspired, what inspires them, and what’s it like living the writers life? So many questions, so many ways to learn and relate. I think it’s inspiring to hear that there’s no hard set rules to novel writing. Imma just be over here doing my best.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
