About Author S

Name:  Shayna

Comfort zones:  Nature, horror, supernatural, suspense.

Goals:  

  • Always strive to improve my writing, weakness or not.
  •  Branch out and write anything I can.

Strengths:

  •  Detail- I love adding all the details that make writing come to life, making my work live and breathe on its own.
  •  Showing, not telling- This goes with detail in that I want to show you what’s happened, not tell you how it happened.

Weaknesses: 

  • Working within limits- I hate limitations, word counts, rules against what I can and can’t use or do. They can be good challenges, but I wouldn’t want to work like that everyday. 
  • Self criticism- I tend to be really hard on myself and my work because I know there’s always something that could be changed; that’s the nature of writing.

Style/Policies:

  • Detail orientated- I want to paint a vivid picture, so you can be just as involved in the story as I am.
  •  No dialogue tags- I stay clear of them as much as possible unless they’re necessary, then said is all I need. My teacher once told me that a reader should be able to know how something is said by the words they say and the actions around it.
  •  No Adverbs- I avoid them at almost any cost; it goes with showing not telling for me.

      A horrible thing, but a blessing in a curse as it drives us to do better as writers. Too much can halt creativity and publishing, but we find ways to wrk around and push through it. Glad to hear we have some common ground. -Author S

    May I suggest that both authors create two separate Gravatars? Add yourselves as administrators of the blog and you will have separate author signatures when you post something. Great posts, so far. I have enjoyed my visit. Have a great summer ahead. xo

      Yes, we’re trying to work out the situation. We’ll know soon whether we need to do that or if another idea arises. Thank you for the suggestion. I’m glad you enjoyed your visit, and feel free to come back and comment any time!

      Thank you very much! Also, if there’s something you’d like to know about writing wise or as just curious me, I take ask prompts as well. Thank you so much for the feedback, and feel free to leave more anytime!
