How should you divide chapters in a book.
Do you divide your book into chapters AFTER you write the entire book? If not, what constitutes a ‘chapter’? What happens in a ‘chapter’? How many chapters should a book have? Can I get some help?
It really depends on what your writing. Some of my favourite books don’t actually have any chapters as the author figures that if life doesn’t have chapters, why should books? Besides that though, the number of chapters obviously vary – if the books a hundred pages long it’ll have fewer chapters than one that’s more around three hundred.I would recommend forming chapters as you’re writing. Ideally, chapters are their to divide the action into manageable chunks. If events X, Y, and Z will be happening you’d want to consider working the chapters around that – after X, chapter break, Y, chapter break, Z. “Rush to the mountain” – “Fight the goblins” – “Save the princess” sort of thing. Also, if you plan on switching POV chapters can be helpful to show whose view you’re seeing through (such as in “Game of Thrones”).Finally, a reason why forming chapters AS your write is a good idea is because it often works well to have them as mini-cliff hangers (Rick Riordan’s books are great for this). “Oh my gosh, X just happened! Now what?” Chapter break, “Resolution to X, go into Y”. Or you might even have X happen – DID THAT CHARACTER JUST DIE? – chapter break, and then go focus on another character or event for a while without giving them an answer until a later chapter.Chapters are a great tool for suspense and organization, so they’re good to practice and use.
How Do I Encourage My Friend.
My friend, Azalea, and I love to read and write. The only problem is with Azalea. She writes really good stories that catch my breath but she isn’t confident with them. She writes a amazing story then she asks me to read it. And I do, and as usual, she never fails to amaze me. They’re really good. I tell…
Maybe you could share some of her stories with other people in school and show her how good her stories are (she may just think you are saying it because you are her friend). Or you could tell her what you like about it and compare it with some good authors books (like rick riordan, James Patterson, etc.) You could also encourage her to make a deviantart account (its free) and post her work on there. You can get a whole lot of recognition from there, too.

What are some good books to learn how to write better like grammar.
I want to become a writer write books and poems. But my grammar and punctuation isn’t very good. Can you name some books that will help me become a better writer?
Congratulations on your dream to become a writer! Maybe someday, our work will be sitting side-by-side in the bestseller’s section at the bookstore!There aren’t many books that can help you with grammar/punctuation, really (the best thing for that is probably a spellchecker), but I do have some author recommendations:Rick RiordanCynthia KadohataErin HunterStieg LarssonBrian JamesJ.K. RowlingLibba BrayCassandra ClareGood luck! =)
Does Rick Riordan have any plans on the Percy Jackson Series or even something like Demigod Files.
Like not particularly on Percy Jackson
A Percy Jackson graphic novel is set to come out on October 19, 2010. Riordan posted “Many of you have asked about a Percy Jackson graphic novel, and I’m pleased to announce it is in the works too. The tentative release date is 10/19/10. I’ve seen some preliminary artwork, and it looks awesome. I think you’ll be pleased with how Percy’s world comes to life in pictures.”http://rickriordan.blogspot.com/A sequel, also based on the Camp Half-Blood and Greek mythology universe, is planned for the Percy Jackson series, believed to be concerning the new Great Prophecy mentioned at the end of The Last Olympian. Rick Riordan has confirmed that he is writing the series, and as of November 2009, the first book is slated for release in Fall 2010http://rickriordan.blogspot.com/2009/11/camp-half-blood-austin-and-other-news.htmlRecently, Riordan has stated that he is working on a new series based upon the Egyptian pantheon, which then turned out to be The Kane Chronicles, with the first book, The Red Pyramid, to be released May 4, 2010.Anna Bell Half-Blood Series : The Adventure of Peter Johnson # 1 – Fall 2010http://www.publishersweekly.com/article/CA6705617.htmlThe Ultimate Guide was published January 19, 2010
the kane chronicles sounds like rick riordan didn’t write it because of mentioning of tape recording.
ok, so i just finished the book, as in 5 minutes ago, and i went back and read the “warning” at the beginning (after the table of contents and before the first chapter) and it says this:the following is a transcript of a digital recording (bla bla bla) background noises such as scuffling, hitting, and…
First of all Anubis is a good guy, you are talking about ApophisSecond of all, this is all just a story, Rick Riordan wrote this book, and it is awesomeGet a grip, it’s just a book
What’s your favorite author & what do they write about. Also favorite books.
Favorite books:Mercy Thompson Series ~ Partica BriggsHarry Potter ~ JK RowlingThe Inheritance Cycle ~ Christopher PaoliniMorganville Vampires ~ Rachel CaineThe House of Night ~ P.C. and Kristen CastPercy Jackson ~ Rick RiordanThe Kane Chronicles ~ Rick RiordanHeros of Olympus ~ Rick RiordanAnd I’m probably missing a lotBased on the list above, I would say that my favorite author is Rick Riordan because of how many times he popped up…. He’s done a lot of mythology stuff lately, but adding a more modern twist to it. Honestly, that’s probably why I started reading his books, I love ancient mythology.
How many Percy Jackson books are there.
My brother told me there were like 12, but I said no, and he said yes, and I said your an idiot. I read them all, including The Last Olympian, so I have no idea where he got that from, but just to make sure. I know Rick Riordan is going to write more books, but not about Percy. My brother said that there are…
There are 5 books in the series, you’re right. However, there are other books (not part of the actual series) that are about Percy, or have to do with the series. These are all the books listed on the website:The Lightning Thief – Book 1 of the “main books”The Lightning Thief: Film Edition – tie in with the movieThe Sea of Monsters – Book 2The Titan’s Curse – Book 3The Battle of the Labyrinth – Book 4The Last Olympian – Book 5Percy Jackson: The Ultimate Guide – sort of a companion book for the series, with maps and trading cards and things.Percy Jackson: Hard Cover Boxed Set – some kind of special edition version of all the booksThe Lightning Thief: Deluxe Edition – it’s like an illustrated version or somethingThe Demigod Files – a collection of short stories, and other things like ‘interviews’ with the charactersThe Percy Jackson: Boxed Set – like the hard cover boxed set, but with only the first 3 booksSo, ‘technically’ there are 11 books you can *buy*. I don’t really think most of them count as part of the series, since 2 are different versions of the first book, 2 are just boxed sets of the books, and 2 of them are guides and companion books. I might count the Demigod Files, since it actually has *stories* in it.So…. you’re both right! Mostly you were right, but your brother was sort of right too.
Interviewing Rick Riordan.
Hello all!Next month I will be conducting an interview with Rick Riordan (Tres Navarre, 39 Clues, Percy Jackson). Does anyone have any questions they’d like me to ask? I have tons already, but I’d like to know which ones you’d be interested in hearing about. Below is the list of ones I already have….
Wow that’s great, how did you ever get to interview him?Anyway your questions are all great, I can’t find one to add 🙂 But I think you have too many questions. I’d narrow it down if I were you. That way he can give more detailed answers for each question :-)Can we read the interview anywhere when you’ve taken it?
How many books are going to be included in the first 39 Clues movie.
How many books are going to be included in the first 39 Clues movie, When is it coming out, and who will be in it?
Movieweb reported in May of 2008 that Dreamworks, which purchased the movie rights for the series, had hired Jeff Nathanson to write the script for “..the first novel in the series, The Maze of Bones, written by former middle school teacher Rick Riordan.”However, according to Wikipedia’s The_39_Clues_(Movie) entry, it is possible that the movie will be about first three books, The Maze of Bones, One False Note, and The Sword Thief or just the first book. However, Wikipedia does not cite a source for this information.The script is apparently now complete, but I can find no specific information about which book or books it will cover beyond what I have cited above.The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) lists 2014 as the release date for this movie, but also says it’s still in production, and offers very limited information. You’ll find websites that speculate on casting, but I couldn’t find any sources that list any contracted actors for this production.It may be that Dreamworks is keeping this all under wraps or perhaps these decisions haven’t yet been finalized. Since I could find no reference to a shooting schedule, or information indicating that filming has begun, it’s possible that the studio is still working out these details.
