It's not something I've ever really thought about in detail, but if anyone ever asked me what shape (generally) a medieval town would be when drawn on a map, I would have said either rectangular or circular. Those are the general shapes we see in books or games or even movies.  We've also probably all heard some version of history that explains how towns grew up around castles, manor houses, cross roads, etc. Circles and rectangles therefore make sense.

I'm doing (more) research for my RK story set in Wales, however, and I've noticed something really interesting (at least to me):
Welsh villages tended to have vaguely triangular sprawls.


Or at least that's the way they appear to me on the old town plans I've been able to find.  It has me wondering why, and if it may have something to do with the mountainous region in which the story takes place.  If you're building in a valley between a couple of mountains, maybe triangular is the shape that makes the most sense.

Whatever the reason, though, I find it neat and thought I'd share.  Especially since I don't believe I've ever seen such a thing in a work of fiction.

When you stare at the word 'relict' and can't figure out how to say it or what it means -- when you go so far as to think it's a type of plant (as in the relict bush or some such) because of the sentence context, then you know your brain is too tired to be doing research and you should just stop.

My younger brother has self published two books in a paranormal series. Today I found out that it was being carried by his local Barnes and Noble, and had already sold out.  They were ordering more.  This is so incredibly exciting and squee-worthy.  Everyone in my family is now trying to buy a copy from B&N -- I mean, we could just order it online, but there's something far more... real about actually buying it, in paper, at a major chain.

Sadly, my local B&N doesn't have it.  ~.~

So I'm gonna go order me some paper copies off Amazon.  If anyone else would like to support my brother, that would be fantastic.  (No pressure, mind you. Just... it would be amazingly cool.)  The series is available at Amazon in paperback, and from B&N in nook format.  And, you might be one of the lucky ones who can buy it at the local store (if you do decide to try it, and you do buy it at the store, I'd love to know so we -- the family -- can get an idea of where it's being carried).

My dad tells me that Jay was surprised to find they'd shelved it in the romance section rather than the sci-fi, but he's pretty cool with it.  'As long as they're carrying it and it's selling, it doesn't matter where they shelve it.'  ;)

Links to both Amazon and Barnes and Noble are below:

Kiss at Twilight (book one)
In paperback at Amazon
In nook format at B&N


Aurora's Kiss (book two)
In paperback at Amazon
In nook format at B&N

ETA: The books are also available direct from lulu.com, and the prices appear to be better while also giving Jay a better percentage.  (Ebook is 1.99 vice 3.99; paperback is 11.99 vice 15.99.)  Here's the link to his stuff there.

A great many aspiring authors do. Never fear, however, for there are a few simple tests to determine if you are afflicted with this common and foolish pretension, and once the problem is recognized, my simple twelve-step program can help you recover while also improving your working vocabulary. Soon, I'll have you properly using those words you're only embarrassing yourself by including now!

First, let's identify exactly what the problem is.  False confidence in one's vocabulary (FCioV) is the assurance that one knows what a word or phrase means and how to use it, when -- quite bluntly -- one does not.  This inflated notion is the primary cause of unintentional malapropisms, eggcorns, and catachreses.  If you suffer from this condition, it's very hard to identify and correct it without outside help.  Luckily, today that help is here.

For an outsider -- henceforth called a 'reader' -- it is fairly easy to detect the afflicted.  Readers don't automatically know what the writer intended, and therefore can only read what's on the page.  This is one of the reasons an editor or beta reader is so important to the publishing process.  However, if you do not have, or cannot afford or find a reader prior to publishing, this short list of questions can help you determine if you are a potential sufferer of  FCioV.

When writing your novel do you:
  • Use words or phrases that you've heard but never read?
  • Use words or phrases that would never feature in your normal conversation or correspondence?
  • Ignore the spell checker, confident that you are right and it is wrong?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the diagnosis is clear:  you have FCioV.  The good news, however, is that FCioV can be treated!  In fact, it can be treated so easily and effectively that there are a large number of authors who have never been diagnosed because they self-medicated early and often.

How, you ask?

The most readily accessible medication is available over the counter, and is called a dictionary.  Dictionaries come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and you can find them in virtually all bookstores (except, possibly, the Christian ones), as well as being readily available -- for free -- online.  I highly recommend the online brands, as they treat far more symptoms (i.e. words) than the paper versions.

Of course, merely owning a dictionary or using it occasionally is not enough on its own.  That's why you need my revolutionary twelve-step process, a process I have made available for the first time today at the low low low price of FREE.   It is clearly outlined below, and should be followed whenever you feel the urge to use a word or phrase that you've never used before, or have only used in conversation, or which your spell checker insists is wrong.

Step 1:  Stop, and consider why you are using the word in question. Is it absolutely essential, or is there an alternative that works just as well and with which you are more familiar?

Step 2:  If you are convinced that you absolutely must use this particular word, then I am afraid it is time to medicate:  attempt to find the word in your dictionary.  

Step 3:  If you find the word in the dictionary, read the definition carefully.  Do not forget to check the part of speech and usage notes.  Are you using the word correctly?  If so, it is safe to proceed.  If not, you must accept that you have made an error:  DO NOT USE THE WORD!

Step 4:  If you cannot find the word in the dictionary, you must conclude either that the word does not exist, or that you have spelled it incorrectly.  Do not, under any circumstances, assume that the dictionary is in error.

Step 5:  Stop, and once again consider.  Are you interested in a learning opportunity?  If not, you must accept that you have made an error:  DO NOT USE THE WORD. 

Step 6:  If you are interested in improving your vocabulary, you must try to learn how to spell the word correctly.  There are several different methods which can be employed:    

  • If you are using an online dictionary, you can check to see if it suggests alternative words that are close in spelling to that which you entered. 
  • You can attempt to look up alternate yet plausible spellings for the word.
  • You can access a search engine, and ask the question:  'how do you spell [the word]' (without either quotes or brackets)
  • You can ask another knowledgeable human being.

Step 7:  Having identified what you believe to be the correct spelling, once again attempt to find the word in the dictionary.  This is crucial.  Do not assume that the word you've found is the one you need:  confirm it.

Step 8:  If you find the word in the dictionary, read the definition carefully. Do not forget to check the part of speech and usage notes. Are you using the word correctly? If so, it is safe to proceed. If not, you must accept that you have made an error: DO NOT USE THE WORD!

Step 9: If at this point you are still determined to use the word in question, but have not been able to verify its existence or usage, you can try to identify the word through a synonym.  If, however, you can identify a synonym, it begs the question:  why are you so intent on using a word you quite obviously do not actually know? 

This is generally one of the hardest steps for FCioV sufferers, as it forces them to acknowledge that most of the time the desire to persist has nothing to do with intellectual curiosity, and everything to do with pretension and ego.  It is my advice, therefore, that patients should only proceed to step 10 after having made up their minds to use the synonym, not the original word.  This ensures that the reason for persisting is out of a desire to know, not a desire to show off.

Step 10:  Attempt to find the synonym in the dictionary.  If you find it, read the definition carefully. Do not forget to check the part of speech and usage notes. Are you using the word correctly? If so, it is safe to proceed. If not, you must accept that it is time to STOP THIS FOOLISHNESS.

Step 11:  Attempt to find the synonym in the thesaurus.  If you find it, read through the possible alternatives in search of the original word. 

Step 12:  If you find your original word, you should now once again (and for a final time) look it up in the dictionary.  Synonyms are often nuanced, and the word may still not mean exactly what you thought it meant.  Once you have done this, you can congratulate yourself on successfully adding the word to your vocabulary.  If, on the other hand, you still cannot find your original word, you are still to be congratulated, for you have made great strides in conquering your FCioV.    (You must also, however, promise yourself that you WILL NOT USE THE WORD.)

A special note regarding phrases:  phrases can be misused much the same as individual words, but are often harder to investigate.  In most cases, for instance, you cannot look them up in a dictionary.  If, however, you want to use an idiom, or a song lyric, or just a phrase you may have heard in passing, you still need to verify that you heard it correctly.  This is best done by following a much abbreviated version of the process:  simply type the phrase into your search engine, and see what comes up.  Further, search for the phrase in conjunction with additional terms like:  'origin of the phrase' or 'meaning of the phrase', to make sure that you not only heard it correctly, but understood it.  Many writers will be astonished to learn that those idiomatic phrases they've been tossing around are not, in fact, the phrases they thought they were.  (For example, it's 'bated breath' not 'baited breath', despite what you may have seen in the local newspaper.)

TESTIMONIALS  (Note:  all testimonials are fake, although the stories of improper word usage are true.)

An Author:  I don't know why, but I always thought a grammarian was a type of text.  Always, even though I'd never seen it used.  So when I wrote my novel, I had twelve young princesses carrying grammarians around -- not just once, but repeatedly!  I was so embarrassed when my readers laughed at me, and well they should:  imagine a six-year-old carrying a grown person around like a bundle of sticks!  Now, thanks to Tae's simple program, I don't have to worry about looking like a fool because of my word choices. 

A Different Author:  I know all about homophones and homonyms, so I never thought I'd trip over one myself.  Yet I did:  I wrote a novel where my character repeatedly showed 'distain' for things.  I never realized that the word I meant -- disdain -- was spelled with a 'd' and not a 't'.  The two not only don't mean the same thing, they're not even the same part of speech!  Today, I follow Tae's twelve-step program, and it keeps me from making that mistake again.

Yet Another Author:  People who are corpulent are usually described as lazy, right?  So that's what I thought it meant.  It's how I described my main character.  Despite being lazy, however, he was also dashing -- so I picked a young, trim, moderately attractive man to feature on my cover.  Only later did I realize that the word I'd meant was indolent, and I'd described my athletic hero as being overweight.  If I'd only stopped to check a dictionary, I'd never have made such a gaffe.  Now, I follow Tae's program, and always check a dictionary instead of assuming I know what I'm saying.

This announcement paid for by Tae's afternoon, and a growing frustration with published stupidity.  (Why am I paying good money to read ridiculous screw-ups?)  Tune in next time for our program on Spelling Apathy, and learn what you can do to stop your writing from suffering this easy-to-address weakness.

Additional note:  I tried to write this with a great degree of humor, so I hope I have't offended anyone.  I do, however, believe what this is saying:  i.e. a good dictionary is every writer's friend, and should be used often when venturing outside your everyday vocabulary.

[Poll #1784008]

I was reading reviews on Amazon, and someone quoted this sentence from Gardens of the Moon, the first book in a ten book series by Steven Erickson. Now, I love fantasy, but ten books sounded a bit much... and the more reviews I read, the more it sounded like it would not be my thing. Main characters introduced in one book only to disappear for a few more before resurfacing? Plotlines introduced, abandoned, then picked up again volumes later? That sounds frustrating to me. Add in that it sounds like it has twenty or so 'lead' characters, and I think not.

But what really really killed it for me was this quote. I hate sentences like this. They may sound great, but when you take it apart, it makes no sense. I hate that people get applauded for it -- where has reading comprehension gone?  These books are apparently chock full of sentences like this one, and that would drive me bonkers.
sekiharatae: (nonplussed)
Is there a more sophisticated term that means the same as 'short-handed' or 'short-staffed'?  Something to describe an office or company that doesn't have enough people to do all the work for whatever reason.  

I feel that there is a word, but I can't think what it is and the thesaurus isn't helping me.  ~.~

I could say the institution in question has 'insufficient personnel' but it doesn't really have the same 'feel' as what I'm looking for.  A 'staff shortage' isn't quite right either.

I want a term that, essentially, means that the office has an expected number of staff and they can't find enough people to meet that quota.

If it's an especially British term, that'd be even more fantastic.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I've been working on an RK fanfic since the [livejournal.com profile] help_japan  auctions ended.  Not constantly -- I've also been pondering my FFVII and HP stories, and spending a lot of time being under the weather -- but still, I've spent a large chunk of my time on it in the last month and a half.

Bizarrely, most of that time has been on research.

Yes, you read that right.  Research.  For a fanfic.  In the last few days I've found myself stopping frequently to double check some fact or another.  Admittedly, it's during the initial 'setup' of my AU, so it's more detail intensive, but still...

Along with all that research, I've been compiling a file of 'notes' -- things I might want to explain to the reader later -- and found myself writing the following:

Initially I’d thought to use Bendigeidfran (Bran the Blessed) as my Apollo analogue, but in trying to pin down what his ‘symbol’ might be (the raven), I grew dissatisfied with this choice. Largely due to the fact that I could find no reason for him to be associated with the sun, despite several lists of Celtic gods claiming the link exists. Instead, I decided that the two best possibilities were the pan-Celtic deities Lugus and Belenus. Lugus is a sort of jack-of-all-trades god – much like Apollo – whereas Belenus seems to be the most universally accepted Celtic sun deity. In fact, the ancient Romans associated Lugus with Mercury and Belenus with Apollo, so I could just go from there. They surely had better access to the source beliefs! However, provided Lugus’ association with light isn’t just an etymological mixup (as one source argues rather convincingly) he may be a better fit for my purposes.
 
And I thought:  Tae, you are insane.  You wouldn't need this much justification if you were writing a novel.  Which you're not.  Pick a name, make one up, but just go with it.

Purple prose is bad.  There are societies and awards and such dedicated to pointing out just how bad it is.  At the same time, many are unaware of how purple their writing is, leading me to think it's a case of varying mileage.  One woman's aubergine is another gal's wisteria, that sort of thing.

Said-bookisms are considered (at least by some) to be a type of purple prose.  And I like them.  I use them without even thinking about it, as a fluid part of my style.  So I guess I'm already leaning in a purple-ish direction.

Which I'm trying to tell myself is fine.  I think... I think I'm happy with the way I write.  Well, not the comma-littering I seem to do, but the way I phrase and describe things.  I don't want to read these 'dos and don'ts of writing' sites and come away distraught.  I don't want to write like one of these so-called or self-professed experts.  (And how boring would it be if everyone did!)

I want to write like me.  

Someone who likes descriptive words and images.  Who believes there's nothing wrong with adverbs.  Who thinks gerunds are very useful.  Who thinks some of our words for human genitalia are in serious need of euphemistic help.  

When I think about the copious number of books I've read, many of my favorites aren't prize-winning.  Maybe they aren't technically perfect, either.  (David Eddings uses said-bookisms, and I adore the Belgariad.)  But a large number of them are persistently well-loved and best-selling.  Maybe that's just as good as a glowing critique.  Maybe it's better. 

So if I can read my own writing and enjoy it, maybe that's good enough.  (Which, as a perfectionist, is so so hard to say.)  Good enough for my readers, and good enough to get published. 

Regardless of whether it's deep purple or just pale lilac. 

ETA:  This sounds whiney, and I don't mean that at all.  I'm just sharing my thoughts as I try to psych myself up to write something original.  And, of course, it's nice to hear your thoughts as well, to get them mixed in with my own and stirring up still more ideas. ^_^

Character A is in need of an ambulance.  Character B calls for one.

Then B helps A climb the stairs to lie down in bed while they wait.

And Tae's brain derails so hard she has to go back and read that again.

What?

You call an ambulance in an emergency.   In general, you are calling an ambulance to arrange a trip to the hospital.  So, in essence, this character just arranged for an express cab... before going to bed.

Not to mention that the patient is likely to exhibit any number of ills from broken limbs to bleeding to lack of consiousness.  None of these things can possibly be helped by being dragged upstairs.  Oh, and the EM team is sure to love it when you move their patient further away from their point of entry.

It's probably due to this sort of reaction that very few people ask me to beta, isn't it.  And no, I'm not beta reading this.  But if I had, this would not have happened.

I've read a lot recently on how 'Said-Bookisms' -- those other words we use in place of 'said' as dialogue tags -- are bad.  'Don't do it,' says everyone from TV Tropes to Stephen King.  The word 'said' is described as virtually invisible and touted for getting the job done right.  Use it and it alone.

Wikipedia, for instance, indicates that the tags in this little snippet get in the reader's way:

"Hello," he croaked nervously, "my name's Horace. What's yours?" he asked with as much aplomb as he could muster.

The second one bothers me (not for content, but because it makes the sentence unwieldy) but the first one is fine in all respects.  Those few words have allowed me to infer that Horace's voice breaks when he's nervous.    Replacing 'he croaked nervously' with 'he said' would detract from what the writer was trying to convey.  How else would one indicate that the speaker was having such an issue?  As a reader, I'd much rather be told that a word or phrase is stuttered or broken than have it typed that way!  Especially since there's nothing about "'He-llo', he said" to indicate the speaker isn't breaking the word flirtatiously.

As such, I think this is at best a much oversimplified rule. (And at worst it's a crap one.)  Which is made doubly apparent when every list of examples (of what not to do) includes things that are wrong for reasons other than the said-bookism.  If the word used isn't a way in which something can be said, for instance, it's wrong because it's not physically possible.  You can't smile a sentence or dance a sentence or blink a sentence; using these as dialogue tags isn't wrong because they're not the word 'said', they're wrong because they aren't forms of speech

Of course, it's far easier to simply say don't than to explain when and how and why it would be acceptable.  Or unacceptable.  And when people do try to explain they give stupid examples -- seriously, one site stated that using 'he whispered' in a love/sex scene would jar the reader out of the mood.  Really?  Because -- for whatever reason -- most people seem to think that sex-talk is something that should be done at lowered volume.  Having the hero simply say things during sex paints an entirely different picture than having him whisper.  It tells me he's probably more confident, for one thing; and there's probably no-one around to overhear, for another. 

One site advised that the word 'snarled' should never be used for dialogue, as it conjures up alpha male jerks.  Obviously, it's ridiculous to think the speaker could just be furiously angry and conveying that with his tone.  Similarly, 'hissed' is inappropriate if the words spoken don't have sibilant consonants.  Because 'hissed' doesn't describe a venomous whisper at all.  

Words.  Have.  Meaning.  Even the word 'said' has meaning.  It's the lowest common denominator of dialogue tags, but that doesn't make it invisible.  For it to be invisible, every word ever spoken would have to uttered in monotone.  For anyone capable of imagining different levels of inflection, it's not invisible.  It's merely... the default.

Consider a scene in which a father is telling a child to stop doing something.  There are lots of ways he could go about it, each conveying something slightly different about how he feels.  Such as:

"Stop," he said. -- A very mild rebuke.
"Stop!" he said. -- A little firmer, a little more demanding. 
"Stop!" he barked. -- Very sharp and precise and abrupt.  Dad is giving an order, one he wants obeyed right now. 
"Stop!" he yelled. -- Sharp, but strident.  Dad is very possibly alarmed.

Depending on what the child is doing -- say, driving his matchbox car on the wall vice throwing it at the window -- a different tag may be more appropriate.  Sure, you could be more explicit --  "Stop!" he said, jumping up in alarm.  -- but how many of us really think Dad just said stop if he was actually moved to alarm?

Said-bookisms can also (as mentioned above) specify how something is said in terms of dialect and enunciation without having to sound it out.  Such as:  "I can't sleep!" the little girl wailed.  (Instead of "I can't sleeeeeeep!" the little girl said.) To me, the first is far easier to read than the second.

So.  My rule of thumb would be that all of your word choices are important, and that you should therefore only use those that say exactly what you mean, and that contribute something to the story that would be lost without them.  If that requires using a said-bookism, so be it... but by the same token, don't use extraneous tags that add nothing.

I must admit that the entire concept is actually kind of mind-boggling to me. Especially since I'm apparently branding myself as an amateur with my approach.  And yet... I can't help but think that -- perhaps -- this minimalistic approach is what has reading comprehension declining daily.  If words aren't chosen because of what they convey but because they can be ignored... well, no wonder people don't understand what they're reading.

I've had a few reviews on ff.net about sequels or longer versions and it's got me pondering...

I really have to try in order to generate a one-shot that's more than say a thousand words long.  As Shakespeare put it:  Brevity is the soul of wit.  Or, another quote I've happened upon that I also favor:  It is with words as with sunbeams.  The more they are condensed, the deeper they burn.  ~Robert Southey

Maybe I'll put that on my ff.net profile...

But perhaps brevity is better saved for public speaking and not narrative.  In which case I definitely have a problem!

Nine times out of ten if I end up writing something longer, it's because I went back and added to what I originally wrote... and it feels like what it is:  padding.  At least to me.  Maybe not to you.

When I first saw Tangled on Thanksgiving, it ate my brain.  I was all about reading and writing fic for it. 

But it hasn't happened.

I got all caught up in shopping and then in watching Stargate while I waited for my bursitis to calm down, and the urge to write for the fandom just sort of... petered away.  (The fandom being so petty no doubt contributed, too.)

I feel like I should want to write for Tangled... but I don't anymore.  *sigh*

Maybe after it comes out on Blu-Ray. 

In the meantime... I do have an idea for a Sleeping Beauty fic.  And I'm going to go back to my FFVII stuff.

On a related note:  is anyone else still trying to finish those meme prompts from last year?  Or have you consigned them to the 'never gonna happen' bin?  I feel guilty for not having finished mine.  ^^;

Really, you can have moments of stupid machoism without needing to justify them with angst.  You can just... want to have intercourse rather than a hand-job. Just because you do.

Right?

...I feel like I'm working some sort of sliding puzzle, where the pieces are all sentence or paragraph fragments, and I just have to figure out the right way to place them for greatest effect.  I know this isn't the way anyone is 'supposed' to write -- that I should get the ideas down and come back and finesse later -- but that doesn't work for me.  I can't leave a section alone until I'm fairly satisfied that I've used the right phrases and words and such.

It's very very frustrating, as it means I can stay stuck in the same place for days.

Also, I hate being redundant.  It pains me to write two paragraphs in a row, for example, which start with 'she nodded' or 'he nodded' (or even one of each).  I feel like I should be creative enough to find another way to say it, even if there aren't really a wide number of non-verbal ways a person can express 'yes' or 'no'.  Same with writing 'his hands did X' and then 'her hands did Y'.  There are only so many times you can use the word 'hands' (or fingers, tongue, lips, etc.) in short succession without it sounding... boring.

Research is the bane of my existence.  Not because I hate doing it, but because it always ends up with me doing a wiki-walk.  Such that, three hours later, I still haven't written anything.  >.<

Yesterday, I went looking up what kind of furniture the Japanese used back in the Meiji era.  I learned all about different types of chests.  Whee!  I still couldn't figure out how to use the info.  Nor can I find out how tatami were cared for back then.  It's not like they had aerosol spray to deal with tatami ticks, so what did they do instead?!  (Internet, you are useless!  Useless I say!)

Today, I wanted to know... heck, what did I want to know?  

Um....

Oh!  I wanted to know what the different areas of Hollow Bastion/Radiant Garden were called, so I could pick the right one to stage what was supposed to be a short story.  Somehow, this has led to me learning that the actual Japanese name of Cloud's omnislash technique (at least as used in Kingdom Hearts) translates to:  Super-ultimate War-god Commanding Slash.

Which, I admit, cracks me up.  It's still not helpful.  (Mind you, I have learned what I wanted to learn, but now I'm distracted...)
