A line from my novel…
“It’s like putting tomato sauce on potatoes when all we have is chicken for dinner…..”
“‘Charles’ is talking to the ocean again.”
Reality? While out on my walk today with my son, I asked him this: “What is wind anyways?”
Eh. Probably just the start of many rhetorical questions to come between him and I.
Like any of us need any of those anymore. Am I right? Go ask “Hollie” or maybe try “holly”.
Right…”i, e and y”
“Holly” doesn’t start with an “M” nor does “Hollie.” So what the hell does this have to do with Christmas? “It can’t be Christmas all the time.”
Note: I make all these posts myself. It was a “special needs” sort of day.
Pronouns? Publishers? Literary Agents?…this is what happens when ‘you’ become ‘I’ never knowing that ‘I’ was ‘you’ in the first place. So where does that place ‘me?’ Huh? Oh, I don’t care. Checking my spelling and grammatical errors is different enough.
I am beyond “putting together 5 years of writing.” Now just need to, “one thing at a time.”
Proper format for submission to publisher or literary agent?
How to trust your literary agent? Or find one that you trust?
Tighten up a synopsis for sending!
one thing at a time can be overwhelming! Any synonyms for wait? I have been done with analogies for quite some time now.
Context is not the same as content. a book is not a word problem
if you want to read my blog ask someone who sees me all the time or has my number what the link is
mo I don’t follow your blog because I don’t know the link
is a link the same as a URL? Are either a link or url the same as a website or a wepage?
Maybe you want me following your blog realistically I think you are crazy or driving me crazy because if I wanted to see your blog I would ask someone I see or someone I know that knows you for the link. Etc, etc , etc
I was “responding” to the daily post, unfortunately I still do not have internet at home, therefore I haven’t “mastered” how to link stuff from one source to the next, etc For those of you “busy” and not a “pro” at website development, “ya’ll” could probably relate
try and stop trying to build ANYTHING in a day that goes for “men” and “women” especially for those of you “trying” to support or liberate woman from being pushed down it just pushes us down more
“Yo, Peace is back by popular demand,” said THE WRITER who is writing on this blog That person would be me write me if you want For those of you whom have viewed, liked or commented on my posts, I am looking forward to checking out your stuff too.
I have the hardest time finding the “correct” or “right” term or word for given things/situations.
It seems like at the moment, if I don’t use the “right” word, everything is taken out of context even more so that it already was.
Not to bring up politics – that is not the subject of the book I have written, but I must admit that I have a bit of empathy for President Donald Trump. He seems like he is also jumped on for using the “wrong words” or “incorrect terms” for things.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Since then I have cleaned up my five years of writing and have roughly 300-320 pages to show for it. I never could have imagined that a mess of notebooks and journals would turn into 300 plus pages with chapters and headings.
Still have aways to go. I need to resolve comments and might need to move a few things around. Then comes the hard part, getting someone to actually want to read it.
If anyone is actually reading this, I will try and post again sooner in between posts.
While procrastinating on continuing to fully and carefully edit through my manuscript or novel or whatever the proper term for “original piece of work”, I thought I might glance through the top stories for today. What caught my eye was an article about river piracy
So, I have been working through my writing, tightening up and “fixing” the dialogue. I’ve been having problems finding other words (the right verb) for “says” or “explains” or “thinks.” I read through some things online and here’s what I found.
There is something called “constructed speech dialogue”, “unintroduced” dialogue, and direct and indirect speech.
I didn’t even consider the type of dialogue that appears like this within the text: and he was like, “did I do this correctly?” Or I’m like, “are you ready to go?” This type of dialogue is represented by this formula: “be” + “like” = “say” it represents the kind of thing a character would be saying or thinking. I think I used to talk this way. For all I know I still do.
My writing over these last 5 years has been an adventure. Putting together and sorting out certain portions of it and constructing the dialogue is tedious but important for the characters to portray emotions and visualize the setting/situation for the reader.
