As I wrote this entry, I pondered briefly about how many people would read this seeing that tomorrow is New Year's Eve. Maybe you’ll just let it sit until January 2nd and, then, read it, which would be fine by me. Or maybe you’re taking a leisurely weekend and would read it as soon as … Continue reading Story First & Quantum Notes
I was going to write about something personal using the hashtag, #thepersonalside, but I’m not quite ready to tell you about the goings-on husband and I are trying to accomplish. Maybe next week. So, this week I’m using the hashtag, #writerslife. 🙂 § I’ve been missing one piece of equipment to finish the rewrite/revision of … Continue reading #writerslife: Printers are a Pain!
I wasn’t intending to be gone for so long. My original plan was to use the month of February to get a better handle on one or two of my writing projects. I got very little done in the way of writing. The first week of last month I tried to work on a second … Continue reading I’m Back (I think)
I know. It’s December, the month of a zillion holidays, events, and headaches. Yet, yes, I am beginning again. It was in September of 2014 when I had my crude draft done on my first novel, my only novel so far --- maybe my only one ever. I tried several times to get into that … Continue reading #writingcraft: Beginning Again
It was about six months ago when I started having grave doubts about my abilities as a writer. Before that time, I thought I had a fleeting shot at getting a book published. Yet, in spite of the distress I felt every time I sat at my desk, I continued to write my blog posts … Continue reading #writingcraft: Perceptive Anguish
Often the method of writing does not seem to be getting the job done at all. Even if I start out with that blank page of the first draft and begin to pound on the keyboard with gusto. I know that somewhere along the way, I will have to stop to do writing tasks that … Continue reading #writingcraft: Productive or Busy
This is my fourth post of the month. Each month, this post will be allotted to the Twitter hashtag, #amwriting. In this post, I’m continuing my story, ‘It was Him?’. Hope you enjoy it. 🙂 Did you miss part 1 on this story? [part 1] § Officer Tanner was a big burly man with clear … Continue reading #amwriting – It was Him? [part 2]
Diana at Part Time Monster used to host a weekly link-up, where you can submit a link to your post and browse everything else that’s been submitted, or you can use the #weekendcoffeeshare hashtag on Twitter or Facebook. However, her last #weekendcoffeeshare was last June. Still, I like this idea of a dialogue so I’m … Continue reading #weekendcoffeeshare: Writing during the Holiday Season
Back Then When I began this blog, my aim was to practice my writing and get a feel for what readers wanted. Both of these endeavors gave me more than amply room to explore. I figured I could “discover what my voice was”, dig into what genre I would be most comfortable with, try on … Continue reading What Should My Blog Be Doing?
Diana at Part Time Monster hosts a weekly link-up, where you can submit a link to your post and browse everything else that’s been submitted, or you can use the #weekendcoffeeshare hashtag on Twitter or Facebook. If we were to have coffee, I’d want it to be at a quaint coffee shop. It would be … Continue reading #weekendcoffeeshare: Where Do the Stories Come From?
I subscribe to a bi-weekly newsletter written and distributed by Jill Jepson. In her last news publication, she wrote about the perceptions concerning the writing process. Like Jill, I’ve been questioning the belief that writing should be done in a certain way. Not quite two months ago I wrote a post somewhat on the same … Continue reading Systems, Order, and Clarity
