I haven't been around because I have not been able to write. Right now, I think for me, at my age, my greatest worry / concern ( outside of spiritual) is the my stories will not be told. I worry that my characters will go unknown, dying with me without having been shared. Sure, I could create the profiles and leave detailed notes in the hopes that one of my children or another writer will tell these stories. It wouldn't be the same. They would put in their own creativity, changing the...
Even though I'm heart-sick that I haven't completed any of my novels, there is a fortunate side to this. It's not too late to change the title. In looking at Wattpad, I find there are over 100,000 stories posted either titled Zodiac Chronicles or some variation of it. Whether title this or not, this is an excessive amount of stories revolving around characters based on the Zodiac signs. So, how do I make mine stand out? First- change the title, or switch it around. This is what I intend to...
I will never understand why, no matter what good a person does- some people can only focus on the bad, that one mistake the person makes. I'm getting ridiculed on another forum because of ONE single typo that I made. This one member ( who seems to think of herself as the guardian of the gate) continuities to post in the thread repeating my mistake. She is supposedly smarter than I am, she has a better education, a better life style, a better life. And yet she treats people like they're...
hey guys, I need a favor... 51 days before I move- My landlord is being a problem - I'm hoping that doing a go- fund me campaign will help. Here's where I need the favor - I wrote a 1 page letter asking for help. I'd like someone to review it to make certain I avoided the whine factor among other things. I'm not a copy editor so I do what I can. I would rather not post it publicly, as I do not want it to be seen as an advertisement. So this would be done behind the scenes. Let me know...
Today, it was finally my turn to make that milestone we all have to make, eventually. This afternoon, I submitted Choices to an e-zine for consideration in publication. I am satisfied with the story as it is. It's been suggested that I expand on this piece, dig deeper into the characters. This is always a possibility, for now though, I'm content with where it is. It'll be somewhere between 3 to 6 months before I know if they'll accept the piece. In the mean time, it's off to figure out...
First Goal of 2019 ACHIEVED! After many years of 'intentions to do it" and finally getting to it this year- CHOICES IS ONE. The first version was written in 2000 & submitted to my instructor on February 21, 2000) as the piece for assignment 4 with Long Ridge Writers Group (now Institute for Writers). The assignment was to write a new story between 750 - 1,500 words. The version I submitted at the time had 1,000 words. I then revisited this piece for assignment # 7 in 2014. The assignment...
Referencing Post I was told: Don't do it. You'll be wasting your time. Scrap it all and start over. You need to be working on 'forward-writing'. Like I said in the other post: as I age, if I get the notion, an idea to do something- and someone tells me not to do it- I’m still doing it. And it's done. For the last year, my focus has been on, not so much sorting my writing drive as it was eliminating the clone files. Today, I have completed this project. The files are still a bit...
I did it! I'm doing it! First, I've come to learn something about myself. As I age, if I get the notion, an idea to do something- and someone tells me not to do it- I’m still doing it. Of course, we're talking about things that don't cause harm and aren't illegal. In the mix of writing, I took up a project someone told me was a waste of time. I'm going to spare y'all the putrid spewing that we all know people spit out when they're against something,. We all know those words and...
Because I got tired of the hassle in finding the threads- these are direct links to my scripts. It's more for my own quick referencing than anything but it comes in handy when people ask for links. Assignment 1: Developing your writers eye- describe a person you know or have known in 500 words. Title: The Wrong Man ( 500 words ) Assignment 2: Use your experience as a springboard for fiction. Write a fiction story of 750 - 1,000 words. Use the person you described in Assignment 1 as the...
Do you ever get that feeling? You know, that you might be in the wrong place? I'm talking about where you live. It just doesn't seem like where you're at- you're not getting anywhere, zero to little progress in life. Maybe you feel stalled or like you're treading water. The wheels are spinning but you're not moving forward. That's about how I feel this passed week. At least, since that phone call telling me that the class I signed up for was pulled from the schedule. The class I really...
