In volume three of Write Like the Wind, Lazar offers examples and advice on dialog tags, including how to replace them with "beats". You'll learn what a preface is, and when to write it. These practical skills are complemented by marketing tips, such as real life feedback on how freebies can actually help you sell more books.
Join award-winning mystery author Aaron Paul Lazar as he shares the cream of the crop from seven years of writing blogs in this fresh and unique offering of advice for fellow scribes.
Lazar offers really good advice on eschewing dialogue tags (avoid like the plague!) in favor of beats, and... that's it! Nice bits on life lessons such as: Enjoy the little things (you know, in case you've never heard that before), but mostly reads excerpts from his own written works.
I must say, I'm glad I'm done with all three volumes. I'm actually prepared and happy to stop procrastinating and do what I was supposed to be doing. Which was starting on my second book.
At the time, it seemed like listening to something about writing would be easier than writing. Happily, I was wrong.
And I will, indeed, take one piece of advice Mr. Lazar suggested: I'll (try to) Write Like the Wind...!
