One Sentence Writing Tips: #1 of 5

I asked FB friends for “one sentence writing tips” and got some great replies. When I did this a few months ago, I only allowed one tip per person, but I made an exception this time. See what you think.

Kathy Dunne Dunnehoff - “Be a finisher!”

Claire Atherton - ‎"There is no hard and fast rule about the best way to write, just go with your heart."

Sheree Bartlett - ‎"The best way to not succeed is to keep making excuses."

Jonnie Comet - (from a beloved professor in 18th Century British Lit) “All literature must have at its core this two-part rationale: to educate and to entertain.”

Kathy Dunne Dunnehoff - “Say ‘yes’ to caffeine.”

Dixon says: In case you missed it, I enjoyed taking part in the Shamrocks-N-Sirens readers event for lovers of thrillers and crime novels. I learned a lot, and got to know a great group of up-and-coming authors. It was also fun to introduce my novel, The Assassins Club, to new readers. The event is finished, but the author interviews and book links are still on Michael Lorde's blog, which hosted the event.


  1. Great advice, I especially liked Kathy''s!

  2. Peace and quiet is what we need to clear our minds of all the drama in our lives. Find a place within a place where you can see the trees, the sky, a lake, or a field of grass.
