I'm a computer technician and web developer that really likes to read and write and do it for fun mostly.

I just finished to write my first novel, but have also a few shorts and poetry works.

comment Can Articy Draft be used to write a book?
Thanks. Writer's Cafè is also a great tool, and costs more or less the same as Scrivener. The downside is Scrivener has a nice and integrated system of managing the scenes and chapter texts, while Writer's Cafè uses an external editor. It's a matter of personal taste to choose one or the other, imo.

comment Writing an effective summary for a story
You know, I really liked the cover. I'm also a fan of minimalist, and use it when I write. I must confess I don't like electronic format. Paper rules for me. I'll try to read your shared content and, if I managed to do it from the pdf file, I pass trough amazon to buy a copy.

comment Writing an effective summary for a story
I think it should work like a teaser, yes. Imho, descriptions should not be used without that "expectation" I told you about, unless you are making it to somebody who won't buy your book (maybe a publisher). When aiming to your readers/buyers, you always should raise their interest, be a summary, teaser and spoiler.

As far as I understood, he is talking about that description added in the eBooks sites, to give more details about the book. Even not using the right terms, I think that's what he meant.

comment Publisher field in Book Review when the book is obtained for free from the internet
The book was clearly self published, so why don't you use the writer's name on publisher? And, btw, why are you bothering so much with that if the author himself didn't bothered to add his name in the manuscript? I wouldn't spend too much time on ti and use "Jonathan Swift self published".

comment How to make a intellectually disabled character believable?
This is really interesting. I always worked based on the temperament vs character dichotomy but this is surely worth some digging.

comment How to make a intellectually disabled character believable?
Indeed my main goal with that character is to be a letter to other characters. I don't want her to have goals, other than passing trough the events of the story. The only way for her to do that is to be helped, what will become one of the goals to others characters and some of them have background that would imply in a sense of duty to help a girl in distress. I could do it with a "normal" 12yo girl but that formula has been used a lot, and I really see that character as somebody with mental impairments. I'll check The Sound and the Fury. Thanks

comment First person pov with more than one main chars
I would really like to get a tattoo with “Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” ;-) Yes, I agree with you... I'm not sure if I'll make it with success but, on the other hand, I won't know if I do not try. In the worse case, I can open the trash bin and start over in 3rd person. But, I'm confident I'll manage to write in first person with multiple characters.
