I was here just looking in


This board feels very lonely at times, and it would be nice if everyone could see that people looked in.

So if you're looking in but don't feel like you have anything valuable to say, just put in a little baby post here - just click an icon or say hi.

Thanks!

Yeah. I should do that with my boards too. I spend most of my time at [sign in to see URL] now though. And I kind of got tired of posting when there are little to no members anyways.

Re: I was here just looking in


That's the problem, yes. I like to keep adding resources and links, but if there is no discussion, things stop being fun.

Should I revive the flash challenge? emoticon

Re: I was here just looking in


  emoticon I wasn't here when the board was active, so I never took part in the flash challenge. I really don't know how popular such things are.

I have prompts/exercises and such on my board, and links to sites that put new ones out every day/week. But I get distracted and forget to even check them out. I do need two more flash pieces to go with the three I have now ... to total 2,500 words so that I can Indie-Publish them in eBook.

Well, I do have a couple others, but the three I want to add to all have the theme of 'bad marriage' going for them. And the others don't fit that theme. I'll need to figure out their themes and add to them until I have a total of 5 to ePublish.

It's weird. I wasn't really trying to create stories with the same theme. It just sort of happened. And once I realized that the three were related, it gave me writers block. I just can't seem to get any ideas now. emoticon I guess I'm over-thinking it.

Yep, over-thinking will do that. So relax, and let me put up some writing prompts. Write what is fun, and then you'll find your pieces.

I have something called Story-Cubes. And I'll roll them and create writing prompts from them. Too lazy to take pics and upload them, but they will come up in the Exercises area.

One of the ff stories began from a prompt from this book:


]What If?: Writing Exercises for Fiction Writers
by ]Anne Bernays, ]Pamela Painter


The prompt was: "Where were you last night?"

Re: I was here just looking in


Nice. I like that prompt.

I also believe that everything can serve as inspiration. And a great question is always: "What if?"

Like, what if that notebook in front of me were actually something else?

Yeah. I should get the book out and not worry about theme. Just write and make up a number of stories, and hope two of them are flash with a 'bad marriage' theme. emoticon

Re: I was here just looking in


Right!

You can always write more. This is something that took a while to get into my head. I can always, always write more. This only stops with my death - or if I give in to blocks.

So ... I vow to write more. Can you do the same?

Re: I was here just looking in


Hi,

I was just thinking that one of my stories started wrong, kinda...

I got caught up in trying to do the story as a single line timeline (ie: a b c d) and instead think the story works better in I went (a: character prologue/reminiscing followed by that was then and this is now)... Does that make sense?

Re: I was here just looking in


It depends ...

The trick to draw readers into a story is usually to have some action in the first few pages. A character reminiscing doesn't sound very active - but again, that depends on your writing.

Classic emoticon I suppose hosting the same avatar on imageshack for more than 8 years was a little too hopeful?
