What makes the creative chaos such a difficult part of the process? Roz: There’s a lot of work that goes into getting it right. You might know that a character walks with a limp, but did you remember to describe this limp on the character's first appearance in the novel?

A variation on this is to write one-thousand made-up words or gibberish. Two professional editors share their wisdom and good and bad examples of important techniques: show and tell, characterization and exposition, point of view, the mechanics and sound (characters' voice) of dialogue, interior monologue, rhythm, variations in paragraph length, repetition, proportion, sophistication, and voice.

I once interviewed John Irving, and he told me that reading a good book is a mainline. If you prefer to write in longhand in Moleskine notebooks, treat yourself to a stack of them. You might find that most of your topic could be supported by a consideration of character alone. But then get back to work. 1 Finish the day's writing when you still want to continue. 2 Listen to what you have written. I initially envisaged it as a series—and may one day revisit it—but I figured the story works better as a standalone.

Many of us who’ve never seen a gun aside from strapped to a cop or soldier’s hip can even diagnose what kind of problem said pressure vessel has based on what kind of sound it’s making (and used to be making). (On that note, if you use a pressure cooker and it starts making a kettle whistle sound or any other high pitched keen, then goes completely silent, run away and hide behind something thick (even an interior wall might not do it). Think of the most obvious outcome, ignore that, then think of something else.
