Writing Group / Chapter Length
« on: February 18, 2009, 06:46:25 AM »
Working on my current project recently, I noticed something very stressing; my chapters are an average of two pages (11 point font, single spaced) each, and I want them to be longer, but I keep thinking of books like Maximum Ride and Holes, where the chapters usually aren't longer than three pages. What would a good length for a chapter be?

Writing Group / Poetry Contests
« on: January 15, 2009, 12:06:39 AM »
So, I need to enter a poetry contest by Friday, and I was wondering if anybody knows of a good contest for a high school student to enter that doesn't have any entry fees.  Please share any you can think of.

Brandon Sanderson / Kelsier the Ja

I'm rereading The Final Empire right now, and I noticed an interesting tidbit of information.  Kelsier asks Sazed to tell him about another religion, and Sazed tells him about Jaism, where the leader, the Ja, gained more influence than he had ever had by being executed.  I noticed that this is extremely similar to how Kelsier ends up getting the army they need.  Could he have been inspired by the Ja, or was it coincidence?

Brandon Sanderson / What happened to Kiin?

I just finished reading Elantris for my second time, and I realized that, although Sarene keeps thinking she'll ask Kiin what happened to his voice, she never gets around to it.  This might be mentioned in the ebook on Amazon, but I haven't read it.  Does anybody know?

Brandon Sanderson / Elend in German

I was reading a book recently, and it provided a definition for the German word Elend.  It turns out that in German, Elend means Misery.  I just thought I'd point out this interesting fact.
