Rachel Poli informs us about different conversations our characters can have. Thank you so much for this great post, Rachel.
Hellos & Goodbyes
This conversation is pretty straightforward. It’s an introduction or a see you later kind of conversation. Sometimes it’s quick, sometimes not. Sometimes it’s easy to say hi and bye and other times it’s hard for the characters. It’s a generic conversation but this can go in many different ways.
General conversations can be natural little quips here and there. It can be something as simple as two characters commenting on the weather. This kind of conversation can shed some light on the characters themselves as well as the setting and maybe some slight plot information.

Bryn Donovan gives us all ideas on how to handle a day that didn’t start too well. Thank you Bryn.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about how to restart a bad day. Because if you’re like me, sometimes you get a day that’s not going your way, and by lunchtime you’re thinking, “Ugh. Today is awful. Maybe tomorrow will be better.”
I know this is faulty thinking. Yes, a good night’s sleep can lead to a better frame of mind, and the dawn is a universal symbol for a fresh start.
But sometimes, I’m giving up on the present day too easily. A bad morning doesn’t mean the afternoon is a lost cause, and a bad day doesn’t mean I have to have a bad night.
I’ve done some thinking about how to make a bad day better…things that have helped me start the day over, even if morning is long past. Maybe some of these will help reboot your day, too.

How to find the best long tail keywords and get your blog post to rank, immediately.
Have you noticed that some bloggers always seem to rank high on Google?
If you are blogging, or content marketing to make money from advertising, affiliate marketing or selling your products or services, you know that keyword search is vital.
Writing a long article and creating content without thinking about SEO keywords first is a hit and miss affair.
Perhaps you might get lucky with a few words and phrases that make it to a search engine results page. But usually, it doesn’t work very well.

You can dream of becoming the next bestselling author, but let’s do a reality check first
You can write, but that doesn’t make you a writer.
You’re a writer, but that doesn’t make you an author.
You wrote a book, but that doesn’t make you an author.
Almost everyone can write. But being able to write is only the beginning. Learning how to be an author by studying the craft of writing takes time.
I like to parallel writing with cooking. The more you do it, the better you get. But how good can you become?
There is a long way between, I can cook, I am a cook, and I am a 3 star Michelin chef. So, which chicken drumsticks would you prefer?
