6 things you should know about being an atheist

Being atheists, we don't believe in a God, so we don't believe in an Anti-God.

Some of us, not myself, can still believe in a spiritual "Nirvana" or something of the sort.

Just because we don't have a holy book, does NOT mean we don't have morals. I get this a lot, and in all honesty, I think it's sad when people have no sense of right and wrong besides a holy book. The Bible (for example), isn't all sunshine and rainbows.

Some people have read it, and some (like me) are learning it to better educate ourselves on the source material.

Crazy, I know, but we don't always want to debate our beliefs! We can, and some of us do too much, but every group has extremes.

6 Things You Should Know about Trying to Write a Novel
1. Inspiration rarely just "comes to you". You need to chase that muse down with a net and a tranquilizer gun. If a good idea does happen to catch you unawares, write it down, lest you forget it.
2. Do your research! If your story is set in 1563 and you send your character to a tennis lesson, someone is going to call you out on it. And you are going to feel really REALLY stupid. Having things in your browser history like "types of stab wounds", "do gills connect to lungs", and "everyday clothing of medieval royalty" is fine (as long you're a writer.)
3. You are going to spend a lot of time staring stupidly at your computer/journal. It's okay. Everyone does it.
4. Utilize the thesaurus, but not too often. Writing
"I'm hungry," muttered Steve as he walked to the fridge.
Is almost always better than
"I am esurient," proclaimed Steve as he sashayed to the refrigerator.
It will get really hard really fast and will annoy your readers. The words said and walk are not evil.
5. Cliches are your enemy. The next time you want to write that story about a young orphaned boy that has an old mentor and a magic sword, please don't do it. If you put a twist on a cliche, it can make it awesome, (like the character is sent to the magical academy to destroy it instead of attend it) so just be creative and think outside the box.
6. Write every day. Even if you don't want to, just do it! You will surprise yourself one day by realizing that you finished that epilogue.
