|Working on a "What A Character" entry. I don't want to do what I usually do and just quickly throw together a story and stick it on the contest. Usually when I do that, I might make an interesting story, but it most likely won't be a well written story. And, in those cases, my story receives a less than ideal rating, and fails to make the top three. So, I'm going to give it a little while. Try to write quality sentences, then edit after I'm done. Hoping it will be enjoyed.|
|My Blog tab says that I my last post was 15,800 days ago.|
|Hate it when someone reviews my writing with the intention of changing my style..|
|Hmm. I might need to use my paper bag idea generator to come up with a truly unique story. I found out today that a film producer is the co-landlord of the building I am staying in. He recommended a book for me to read, and told me when everything is ready, to write a short film screenplay for him to read. I mentioned an idea to him, and he said that nearly all beginner screenwriters use similar ideas during film school; he wrote similar screenplays. So, now for something original. |
|if tomorrow would come more quickly |
if I could fall right to sleep tonight
for my mind it wanders and keeps me awake
especially with my heart's excite
|Are you having a tough time thinking of ideas? Well, take three paper bags. In the first one, take several small pieces of paper and write one single genre on each of them.. ball them up and throw them in the bags. In the second, similarly write on the paper, but this time think of a random word like kitten or fork. In the third, think of a random name like Shaun or Theresa, ball them up and throw them in the bag... |
|These are just off the top of my head sentences, but I've been doing some studying about "showing" and "telling". I wanted to make two different lines and see which reads the best. |
*1* Shaun's body trembled and he screamed.
*2* Shaun's body trembled, "Ahhhh!"
The reason I am asking this is because, according the to book I'm reading, "he screamed" is telling. But then again, they say some telling is okay. Which do you think is better?
| Happy WDC birthday! |
|Thanks for the birthday wishes. I still don't have my own internet connection, but I remember seeing some Star Trek fanfic writing contests on here back a few months ago... Within the past few weeks I've been watching each star trek episode that comes on. I think my favorite would have to be voyager, and for some reason I find that Vulcans are hilarious (so serious). So anyways.. I will try to write something and put it on my flash drive.. Don't think I'm neglecting you all....|
|Song of Solomon, a book from the Bible, just before Isaiah. It is a very poetic book, for anyone that hasn't read it before.|
|Hey everyone. I just wanted to stop by and greet all the mother's on here a happy Mother's Day! I haven't been around in a while. I still haven't turned my internet back on; I'm at my uncle's right now. I have been practicing my writing with poems, screenplays, and stories. I may not be working as diligently as I was when I was an active member of this site, but I am still trying to refine my skills into the most emotion catching skills that I can possibly develop. I shall post something soon.|
