    True story. I knew someone who had an uncle called Titus Arsell. It was so good, I had to use it in my first novel.

    Jane Austen was the game-changer. Since then, PD4/free indirect style has become much more commonly used as a way to get us closer to characters. So, not that recent!

    Yes - deep - or close - POV is just another way of talking about psychic distance at PD4-5. And, of course, PD is intimately tied up with showing and telling, voice, character etc.

    Thanks, Richard. :-) I'm running the 27th course at the moment (can you believe that???) so I'm here a fair bit but don't always spot things on the main Cloud wall. Appreciate you jumping in.

    Hi Poggle. As I understand it (though I could be wrong) there will be a discount on the self-edit course for members of JW. I believe the courses that are included in the monthly fee are completely new video courses, recorded specially for the ...

    @Donna, you said: 'They say this site cannot be migrated to a new platform... and yet that is precisely what they are going to do when they activate the new site Jericho Writers.' Just to clarify - there's a difference between the Cloud and the WW ...

    Popping my head over the parapet here. I spoke to Harry a while ago and said that we had promised that the course groups and materials would remain available to our self-editors. As a result of that conversation, my understanding is that the Cloud ...

    "Debi" commented on John Alty's Blog "Is the story everything?".
    You made me laugh, John. If I were editing the bible, I would ask first about the genre. Fiction? Creative non-fiction? MEMOIR? With books that are poorly written, there are many trade published books that fall into that category too. All of Dan ...

    Debi commented on Liz's wall:
    Hi Caroline. Are you and Liz aware that you're posting on the main Cloud wall, which is public? If you want to speak privately, you'll need to send each other messages or 'chat' on the course wall, where only our group will see it.

    Good blog, Scarlett. *Pssst* Hil and Sche - I didn't like My Brilliant Friend either. Someone bought me the first 3 books in the series and I've never dared tell her I didn't finish the first one. And don't even start me on Reservoir 13. My ...
