About The Write Life for You (TWL4U)

Featured on APOOO Books

The Write Life for You (TWL4U) is a monthly column that focuses on the nuts and bolts of writing creatively.  So many of us have ideas for stories, and so many of us put ideas to page and develop short stories, novellas, and novels.  However, many of us have no idea how to care for our literary babies with correct grammar, mechanics, and storytelling skills once that first draft is done.  That’s what TWL4U is for – to offer, through short articles, advice on such issues as camping vs. marching, taglines, plot, characterization, dialogue, and punctuation.  The writing life is not quick – it is a lifelong journey to study the craft of writing, to learn the rules of the English language (so that you can eloquently break them!), and to better your writing with each new piece you develop.

There is also the opportunity for readers to contact Shon and ask questions; your questions and Shon’s comments could become upcoming features on TWL4U.
