Books, Energy, and Music: This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It's like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and l create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes when l am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals-sounds that say listen to this, it is important So write with a combination of short, medium, and long sentences. Create a sound that pleases the reader's ear. Don't just write words. Write music. Gary Provost sol1056: scripturient-manipulator: bookmania: Seven years after, I see you again 😚 Guys this completely changed my writing, heed it. I often do an entire draft just looking at sentence variation and oftentimes the results are absolutely transformative in the difference. If I were to list everything from Gary Provost that changed my writing, I’d just be quoting all his books back at you. If you can find a copy of Make Every Word Count, get it, read it. None of this navel-gazing about creativity; he gets into the weeds of how to use words to create stories. Brilliant stuff.

Be Like, Beautiful, and Crying: Someone should write a book where the main character slowly falls in love with the reader. "Someone should write a book where the main character slowly falls in love with the reader. Last line of the book "Please, don't close the book, I don't want to die oh my god I'd just like, keep the book open and tape it to a wall. I'm almost afraid to want it John Green, we're waiting So I guess this is it, isn't it? There are no more chapters, right? You said we were getting close and that was a while ago. I stared up into the sky, it was the same old sky there had always been, except for some rainclouds that hadn't been there a few minutes ago. It wasn't raining, but they were still floating up there grey and dismal. You begin to ask me something "Don't ask me how I know, I just do. Things just feel really final right now, like the downward slope is starting to level out Eventually... We'll hit the back cover, right? I sat down on a bench- had that been there a few minutes ago? It was hard to tell. Did you say yes? I think I heard you. Your voice keeps getting harder to hear Thunder rumbled, but. t wasn't like the thunder I'm used to. It sounded like you, and it sounded sad. From one of the clouds, a single drop of rain fell on the grainy wood of the bench. ".. You're crying, aren't you? I'm sorry, I'm really sorry. I wishl could change this. I wish I could reach where you are Thunder rolled again, and behind it was a voice. Your voice Me? I'li be fine, I think. I don't know if this has ever happened before. I don't really know what happens when you...close the book. You ask me if I'm afraid And oddly, I'm not. "No, actually. Because... Whatever happens to me when you close the cover... You can always open the book up again, right? and that's when the answer hits me, the realization jolting me to stand again. That's it, isn't it? You can open it back up. The words won't change, but Fll still be here. You can meet me all over again, and I can meet you, and everything we have will come back. It's raining now, and the clouds have merged together, and in them, for the first time... I see you You are the most beautiful life person I have ever seen in my entire You're crying, but it's quiet, and maybe that was the sound of your tears hitting paper I realize that we don't have a lot of time. Listen-before it's all over-I want you to know that everything, all of this... Even being over, it was worth it. It was worth it to meet you, to get to know you. Even if when you close that cover and I disappear- it was all worth it. I love you. You love me too, I know it, I can feel it, just like for a moment I can feel what it would be like to hold your hand. There is a very long pause, and I realize you're prolonging what has to happen. "You can do it." For the first time, you have to be the hero. You have to close the book so we can keep going. And I believe in you. The sky gets darker, slowly, but then it gets light again, and your face is still up in those clouds. You open your mouth and for the first time I HEAR you, not just feel what you're saying or understand you in my own head, your voice comes through the pages in your world and into the reality of mine, and it reverberates and I can hear every little nuance, down to the hitch from you crying "Tll never forget you, you say. TIl come back soon The end SOMEONE DID AND NOW IM EMOTIONAL i would keep the book open and write extras saying that "NOPE WERE MARRIED.
