Andrew Terech: 5 Quick Tips to Write Better Sentences #Guest #Blog Victim Souls #Spotlight #Giveaway

5 Quick Tips to Write Better Sentences When I first started writing I didn’t have an academic background in English, and I was not what one would consider well read. I did what anyone in my position who wants to be a writer would do. I started writing. What came out looked good to me at the time, but it lacked a lot of fundamental components. I joined a writing workshop in Phoenix, where I communed with other writers (some with editor credentials) weekly to read my writing and get constructive feedback. Since then, I’ve become exponentially more skilled at sentence construction. I only wish that as a beginning writer someone would have pulled me aside and given me a crash course on some of the most basic concepts that we as writers encounter in almost every sentence we write. This post will point out 5 rudimentary challenges in a simple way that I hope can benefit any new writer who comes upon it. Now, most editors or grammar masters could write dissertations on the

#Spotlight #Giveaway: Z-Radio by Candy O’Donnell

My life will never be the same again! My entire existence changed when the Zombie Apocalypse started. I was bitten and thought my life was going to end at the radio station. My name is Cherise, and there are people out there that want me dead! Snippet:   I closed my eyes and glanced up a few hours later to see the sun rising in the sky. The air felt heavy and I knew we needed to eat. Fresh water was needed too. “I guess I can go out now without getting into a whole lot of trouble.” I noticed a tree sitting near the roofline and visibly measured inside my head if I could jump into it and drop to the ground. After I did it, I called, “I guess it was easier than I thought.” Darren and Ryan raised a fist into the air and gave me a send-off. I hurried through the crowd of undead. It was like running in a high school cafeteria—everyone was hungry, but for what no one knew . Facebook event: events/435018076649388/?ref=2& ref_dashboard
