THIS WRITER’S LIFE: Euphemisms for fun and profit!

A friend bought her granddaughter a NETFLIX AND CHILL cushion for her Birthday. The hilarious response to the gift was how my friend found out that NETFLIX AND CHILL had an entirely different meaning for millennials.

So watch those EUPHEMISMS. They can be soooooo embarrassing and hilarious. If you are not familiar with this euphemism consult Dr. Google.

THIS WRITER’S LIFE: Inspiration or Prison?

Reading is essential for a writer.

Who wouldn’t want to write like Dickens or Hemingway or Tolstoy?

Yet from this desire, we create our own chains. Build our own prison.

A writer must kill their literary icons to free their own voice.

This Writer’s Life: Starting Out

When I first announced that I wanted to write 30+ years ago my friends laughed. ‘You can’t even spell’ said one. In these small ways, we are pressured to limit ourselves. Don’t listen. After 20 books I can say that I now misspell a much higher class of word.

Does writing about violence encourage violence?

In view of recent events and the fact that I’ve just had a crime novel published, I had to ask ‘Does writing about violence encourage violence?’

Researchers say ‘No!’ for some writing genres. There is, however, one genre of writing that encourages violence and that is in the marketing of guns. You’ll find this research and links in an article I wrote for Independent Australia titled The NRA: fear, hatred and how to sell guns.

10 things authors should NOT do by someone who did them all

4. Humour

Some thoughts on writing humour. It’s a tricky business. Current events can instantly kill humourous writing. If you write a funny piece about fear of flying, say, then a plane crashes, the article crashes too.

Readers can take personal affront to a joke. I once wrote a funny piece alleging that the group KISS were a band of aging rockers. They did wear those platform heels. Could be a bit dodgy as you age. I received quite a few outraged emails. The KISS army is out there somewhere still loyal and still marching on.  Age shall not weary them,  apparently.  I’ve  had  highly  critical letters stating that my writing lacked  the  restraint  necessary  for  a  civilised  society.  I  didn’t realise I  could  cause  the  collapse  of  Western  Civilisation  by  including  the words ‘pissing yourself’ in an article.

But more than anything I loathe with a passion the HUMOUR section in a bookshop.
