Re: Discussion: Q1 Volume 36

I'm always happy to read about things I know very little about. I do appreciate anything that expands my educational awareness. On the writing I'm doing, in an earlier post I talked about abandoning a story to write something from a prompt. Everything was fast-paced from the start. After I addressed...

Re: Moon's SUPER SECRET Bonus Challenge! Vol. 36

That's awesome to read those words Wulf. It makes what happened to me yesterday seem a little less of a thing to worry about. When I sat to write I looked at my dry-erase board and a possible title caught my eye. I'd already had at least one brainstorming session with it so the story direction click...

Re: What's Your Short Story Writing Process?

I have an eraser board on the wall in my office. When I get an idea for a story I write it out.
Whether it's a title or one or two sentences it stays up there until I use the prompt.

Some ideas stay up for a long time but nothing gets erased until they are incorporated into a new story.

Re: Transferring facing a dangerous situation into your writing

In 1995 hurricane Erin hit the Florida panhandle with 100 mph winds. When the storm arrived I laced up my favorite shoes and ran into the storm. I was instantly soaked to the skin by the force of the wind being blown sideways leaving little red dots where each drop striking me made it look like I ha...

Transferring facing a dangerous situation into your writing

As I sit here tonight hurricane Michael has a bullseye targeted on Pensacola. The Weather Channel tells me it will turn away. Do I stay or do I run? This is at a minimum my sixth active hurricane. When I was younger I would jog through the high winds enjoying every minute of the experience. In the n...

Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 35

I would love to win this contest. I'm working hard on finishing a novel and still finding time to write short stories.
I have only one HM so anything above an R would make me happy.

Along the way I've broken my dragon addiction and qwerty type my stories now.
