MORE ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR LORRAINE REGULY…

Lorraine Reguly is an author and English teacher who is now a freelance editor, blogger, and entrepreneur. Her life journey is motivational and inspirational. Lorraine’s book, From Nope to Hope, is designed to help anyone who wishes to lead a happier life. It contains a built-in workbook and is available on Amazon.
Lorraine offers 4 different services through her business, Wording Well, including writing/blogging, editing, and consulting/coaching/mentoring. She also helps others become published authors!

Book Description for From Nope to Hope:

Deciding what to do when you are suicidal is tough.

You don’t know what to do. You don’t know who to turn to. YOU JUST WANT YOUR PAIN TO END.
You don’t necessarily want to die; you want to live a better, happier life… one worth living!

From NOPE to HOPE reveals easy-to-accomplish, actionable strategies for changing negative thoughts into positive ones AND for learning to live a happier life.

Some of these include using positive affirmations, visualization, improving your self-image, and setting goals that you can actually accomplish. These strategies (and other techniques) worked for me! I went from a suicidal mess to… a success! In this book, I share all of these with you so that you can move forward with your life and stop feeling horrible. I also provide you with Thought and Action Exercises to do, at the end of each chapter.

YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE INTO ONE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO LIVE!

I know, because I did it.
You can, too!
Put my methods to work for you and let me help you transform your life!

#Amediting, #WritingTips

Changing Point of View During the Editing Process


Hello everyone in the blogosphere,
I have a couple of writing tips to share, one of which is changing the point of view of your novel during the editing process. I wrote an entire book in Third Person, but my main character told me in no uncertain terms that she needed me to let her tell her story, at sometime after 4 AM on February 20, 2020. That same afternoon, I started rewriting Chapter one in First person. As I did so, I realized that my Main Character’s questions could be written in the narration of the story, instead of internal dialogue in italics.
The second tip, after you’ve decided which POV is the right fit for your book, is to ask yourself why elements of your story and your characters develop the way they do.
