Someone here knows how to write a book ?
« on: Sep 16, 2004, 07:50:11 AM »
Hi, I know this is kinda weird to ask this here but I would like to write a book about divorce, my storry and my ex wife storry,

I am not really looking for things like: "really hard to be published", or "your storry is the same as all of ours", ....

I am more doing this for me but I want to try to do a good job and so I have questions, things like: how many chapters, which font size to write it in, how many pages in a chapter, .....

I just have plenty of little questions like that and so I am looking for someone that can kinda mentor me.

Anyone knows  ????

Couldn't we all write a book, then go for the feature film or at least a mini-series!? lol... that very joke has been one of the things keeping me going despite whatever new wacko thing my PBFH tries.

Try this link for starters, everything on it is free, but I can't currently connect with the rsalsbury site to check out the free word processor.  The online encylopedia is very helpful with tech terms and if you should decide to try and get something published. They also have a paid service which offers more.

Also http://www.wordsmith.org is a fun site with some useful and useless stuff. The anagram server is fun to play around with...  SPARC re-aranged is CARPS SCRAP, SCARP and CRAPS lol!!!! Sorry administrators, couldn't help it! More of a description of life without ones kiddos at times. Theres another anagram thing at http://www.anagramgenius.com

And of course, don't forget the legal dictionary right here on good 'ol Carps, er, I mean SPARC...lol! It is an EXCELLENT resource!  They call it a "page" but it's more like an encyclopedia.
