Jane Austen on Becoming a Classic (Pictured: Travel Cut Refillable Leather Folio with left-handed writing.) - Jane Austen was an English 18th Century Writer known for works such as Sense and Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice, and Emma. At a time when women were not the most-published authors, Austen published her works anonymously, signed simply, "By a Lady." Another fun fact: She also brewed her own beer. Cheers to that! Enjoy these valuable tips from a world-renowned classic novelist. - Make Sure Your World Works: Whether you're writing about your hometown or a place born in your imagination, everything in your world has to make sense. It's crucial that there's logic behind aspects ranging from your characters' motivations to the rules of their society. - Create Characters That Are Human: Austen is responsible for creating some of the most memorable characters in literature, and she did so by giving them the complexity of real people. Even if you aren't actually writing about humans, remember that your characters should be multifaceted. Smith highlights Austen's warning against writing heroes without flaws and villains that are pure evil. - Use Subplots, And Use Them Well: You might have your plot worked out, but it's also important to consider deepening your story with subplots. Austen did this masterfully, using secondary characters as a way to explore various themes. - Try This, A Writing Prompt: Write about a time in your life that was both a blessing and a curse at the same time. - Shop Murdy (Pictured Geodesic Bucky Ball Classic Cut Refillable Leather Journal in Chestnut)
