WIP mini blog hop

Posted by Laura Ann Dunks on Monday, November 12, 2012, In : MEME 

I was tagged by my friend and critique partner Lianne Simon who is the fantastic author behind Confessions of a Teenage Hermaphrodite.

What is your working title of your book?
Butterfly with Broken Wings.

Where did the idea come from for the book?
I was faced with my own chronic illnesses, including Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, and the lives of many others, especially children who were bedbound and had lost their school friends. Children find it hard to visit their friend in bed when they are used ...

Please vote for ME research to receive grant - less than 3 days left.

Posted by Laura Ann Dunks on Saturday, July 10, 2010, In : ME/CFS 

The following information has been copied from various sources.

Unfortunately, I relapsed not long after writing this and have been cycling between bed-bound and mostly house-bound since, although I have been improving lately. I also have d...

The Importance of Grammar

Posted by Laura Ann Dunks on Wednesday, May 5, 2010, In : writing tips 

When writing a synopsis recently, I was advised by a very helpful fellow writer in my workshop to improve my grammar. Given I wasn’t really taught any grammar at school, I have been trying to improve my grammar recently, and been fairly successful so far. However, my commas needed work, and this lady recommended an excellent blog where grammar, particularly clauses and comma placement have been discussed in more detail.

Grammar is ESSENTIAL. No writer can avoid perfecting this technique and ...
