Wanting to become a Book Author..Help Please?1Lori Goclowski2018-04-05 00:34:13
I enjoy writing,I have been writing since I was in grade 10 *age 14* (now a high-school graduate and 17) I want to become a author..My idols are J.K Rowling and Sharon Osbourne I still have a lot of kinks to work out in my writing.I don't think i'm the best writer,I don't think i'm better then J.K Rowling but I do think i'm a alright writer..i can improve,I know I need to improve on my writing,I'm more then happy for people to suggest on ways for me to improve How would I get my stories published? Would I have to get a publishing agent? Would it be easier to go self published? Is there any good publishing agent's out there? (here's a bit of one of my story) It all started on a cold winter’s night, it was raining heavily forcing her to pull her jacket tighter around her body. She let a sigh slip from her nearly purple lips. The rain was patting onto her body. Clarissa was a female that found it hard in the work force and found it hard to pay for her studying. She took up a new job which was quite dangerous; she had been working as a stripper at Hollywood Showgirls on the Gold Coast. ---- Clarissa was slowly working towards her dream to be part of the police force. She had always wanted to work as a Police Officer. She had dreams when she was little and hoped that nothing would get in her way. She had been working as a police volunteer since she was eighteen and found it quite interesting but now she wanted to work full time with them but she had to first finish her study and pass the police course. Clarissa was a very unique and quiet student. She once went to university to study psychology but had found it hard, so she was now learning how to join the police force. It was her dream job to follow in her family footsteps; Her dad was a senior Sergeant and had been four years; His dad was superintendent; His dad was commissioner. Clarissa didn’t mind working as a stripper, it helped pay her bills and helped pay for her studies. Her father wasn’t pleased about it, but he knew she needed the money. He did beg her to allow him to pay for everything but Clarissa wasn’t a “daddy’s girl”, she didn’t want him to pay for everything. She had to learn how to do things on her own. ----

What is a good major for an aspiring author?0Bubbles2012-10-19 10:05:24
I write fiction . I'm playing with different degree options and wondering A) what will give the best training to write really nice literature , business , b ) What will make me marketable outside of writing the book , if I need a quick job . I do not want to teach. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus This is my tentative plan : in psychology , minor in creative writing ... I keep getting more of the English , because I want to avoid all sorts of literary interpretation are downright useless , a pain in the neck . I want plenty of time to practice writing , because that's when my writing improves. Taking psychology as a major gives me double benefit of requiring less time than most large ( so you will have more time for writing ) , while giving me great ideas in the human psyche for development best character . My plan is to take more substantial extras , more education writing classes to make writing as a child . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus What are your opinions? Bad idea / good idea, I have a better idea? Also I have no idea what kind of expertise you want , but would really like one pursued.
What would be a good major for an aspiring author?1Oh baby just come to me- bye ery87 2012-10-25 11:51:59
I'm currently working on what I want to major in in college (I'm still in high school at the time ) . I want to be a fiction writer more than anything , but I heard that majoring in English brings a wealth of technical information about typing that many authors do not use later . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Does anyone have any advice on a different major that may work best for my advantage as an aspiring writer , and maybe give me a little more job opportunities when I graduate ? I do not like the idea of being stuck in a boring office job while I try to be published . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I was thinking about psychology or sociology , because I love learning about people . I am also drawing, singing , history , horseback riding , and animals in general , if that helps with suggestions . Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :-)

Isn't it funny that the author of "Predictably Irrational" has been advising Obama on behavioral psychology?6Mailo Her2012-10-14 10:08:02
http://www.time.com/time / journal / articl ... MedlinePlus MedlinePlus "People want to do what others will think," says Cialdini, author of the best seller Influence. "The Obama campaign really I have." ............ The existence of this behavioral dream team - which also included best-selling authors Dan Ariely of MIT (Predictably Irrational) and Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein of the University of Chicago (Nudge) as well as Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman of Princeton - never has been publicly disclosed, even though its members gave Obama white papers on messaging, fundraising and rumor control as well as voter mobilization. All their proposals - among them the famous online lotteries to raise funds that gave small donors a chance to win face time with Obama - came with footnotes to peer-reviewed research scholars. "It was amazing to have these bullet points telling us what to do and the science behind it," Moffo tells TIME. "These guys really know what moves people." President Obama is still based on behavioral science. But now the government is using to try to transform the country. Because when you know what moves people, it's much easier to help them change ............ Research shows change can occur when it is easy and popular, but what is profitable - or even mandatory - MedlinePlus Maybe so. MedlinePlus This is one reason why there is a renewed interest in gas tax, alcohol, electricity and even trans fats to discourage undesirable behavior to close budget gaps. Obama already raised taxes on cigarettes and wants to end tax breaks for drilling and offshoring. It seems even more eager to subsidize desirable behaviors such as savings, education, climate and buying fuel-efficient vehicles and energy efficient appliances. Of course, his energy policy goes beyond incentives, wants a strict cap national carbon emissions. He also noted the opening of a national health insurance mandate. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus If neoclassical economics wants the government to leave us alone to do what we want, behavioral economics leaves room for government action to help us do what we really want if they were rational agents.

Years ago I read this young adult science fiction novel and have never forgotten the story elements ... but of course , I can not remember the title of the book . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus It was a group of children who wake up in ( or made ) a room without windows or doors . They discover that if they react in certain ways to environmental stimuli (such as light or sound) that will be rewarded with a food substance like gelatin that is dispensed through a tube in space. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus They fight and try to work together and fight some more ... the book is about the psychology and behavior ... eventually the children are released and the narrator, who has resisted more conditional training , said that as soon as the other children see a traffic light change to start acting like they did in the room in response to strange lights get food ... MedlinePlus MedlinePlus It's driving me crazy ... thanks in advance !

- It is important to be picky, but it is also important to hide what they are demanding MedlinePlus - Nobody wants to be around someone who can see all his faults and weaknesses, and no one wants to be around someone who hates or is able to search the MedlinePlus - We all have secrets we do not want others to know about what is the best way to deal with people is to prevent courts sitting MedlinePlus - My cousin used to attract people like a magnet acting like he was blind to his faults.

I graduated from BA last month. I'm about to start law school in the fall . However, to realize how much debt I'll be in , so I began to consider other options .

Where do I start ? because I have no idea. Thanks for your help in advance .
