Semi-Pro writer, former magazine publisher, programmer and private pilot. A little bit crazy but useful if you need that sort of thing.

I've been writing for as long as I've been able to write and I've even managed to sell a story or two. I usually stick with a more science fiction and fantasy setting, but I also like to experiment with other genres. Mystery is one I'm still working on, but it's coming along okay.

comment How to go about breaking up a looooong YA story?
Or anything that leaves the reader asking 'what happens next' it could be a cliff hanger, or it could be that the climax of the books has changed everything.

comment How do you track random thoughts and ideas?
I don't think it's a duplicate, how keeping track of the random thoughts and ideas is really it's own topic.

comment Do You Use Any Version Controlling Software/Methods As Writers?
Funny, I use the same thing. Though hosting wise I use VisualSVN. It's easy to setup on windows, you can view it with a browser and it's ready for use on the network. Combine that with TortoiseSVN you can write anywhere in the house with little to no setup.

I did mean this in regards to third person limited, though it could also apply to first person as well.

comment Initial Writing Medium
I would also add that you should be willing to play around with your medium now and then. Sometimes moving from a computer to pen and paper can help clear out the mental blocks.
