Don't miss out on using Proust's Questions Editor's Notes #93
November 15, 2010
Hello,

I try to use all of my senses when describing a setting,
and try to think of everything that would impact a character
in any given scene.

In this issue:

1. Using Proust's questions
2. Tickled my funnybone
3. Interesting Web site
4. Future issues

==========

1. Using Proust's questions
Proust's Questions, also known as Proust's Questionnaire, kept popping up on my radar. I finally decided to make a small study of this list.

To my surprise, I learned that I had already been using a version of Proust's Questions in my life and writing. Maybe you have been, too. Find out by reading the brief article I put on my Web site at http://www.writershelper.com/prousts-questions.html

2.Tickled my funnybone
The Washington Post has published the winning submissions to its yearly contest in which readers are asked to supply alternate meanings for common words.

This is my current favourite:
"Lymph, v. To walk with a lisp."

3. Interesting Web site
Thanks again to Lesley from Devon for pointing out this article on speech writing. It gives specific techniques that work in both oral and written communication.

4. Future issues
The next three issues will focus on another use for a writer's Web site, more results from the self-publishing survey, and finally, a general writing topic.
