    For those of you who can draw...

    Though I haven't done it yet, I am very sure that actually drawing your characters while playing some music you feel somehow connects to the mood of your story will create words of fire on your pages!
    I've identified some celebrities who I feel help to personify some of the characters of my book. Thinking of them while writing a scene containing these characters seems to really help.
    It also seems that a "fresh pair of eyes", i.e., coming back to a scene you've written, can work what feels like magic upon your writing.
    Try though I might, I cannot seem to run on greed as my fuel, nor a tendency to "hoard". I'm put together to run on PASSION.

    I've actually never read the book, oddly enough!

    I stand by outlines almost patriotically. They work. Writers who act all allergic to them and high-and-mighty about their not needing plans because "plans like, ruin the art, man, plans lock you in to the system's way of thinking, bro" are fooling themselves.
