My name is Chris and I am in the midst of an attempt at writing a novel that splices elements of southern gothic and postmodernism. And a bit of the ultraviolence.

All this in the attempt to download a narrative that has been baking in my mind for years. A narrative that, once distilled, will most likely mean nothing, but nonetheless I dream.

I am a drone of an engineering professional and do not have many friends or acquaintances with even a feigning interest in literary fiction, let alone the willingness to read and/or provide feedback; so I call upon the interwebs to intercede on my behalf.

I look forward to meeting and working with you all.
Review My Work / Re: Lost Shadows - Chapter 1

Perfect, I see
Since the pandemic, I've also been rearranging things in my house, especially in my room. I've changed the type of books I keep by my bed (now I keep books I've already read, ones I really enjoyed, and flip open at random), moved my work desk around, changed the shade on my windows. I don't do this often, just to get out of a rut. I was watching David Lynch talking about creative practices and realized "creative block" might be a misnomer. It's not a block if one takes zero effort to go fishing for ideas. Then one has to develop those ideas. I think too often I've mistaken lack of effort for a creative block of some sort. The key now has been keeping my notes really close to my bed, so I can write things down without having to think about getting up and getting my notebook. Made a huge difference. I've also decided to take up intro-level Physics reading lists to add some variety to my reading. These books are mostly 101, but deeply informative. Currently reading Giancoli's Physics: Principles with Applications (6th Ed). I'd recommend it if you too are revisiting basic Physics after years.

In sum, reading things outside of my comfort zone and making sure I reduce excuses to put in effort have been beneficial.
The Writers Circle / Do You Have Any Questions About My Self-Published Publication?
« Last post by HPvD on October 25, 2020, 05:43:55 AM »
I have amung others a Writing Blog, and because of this recent
thread titled:

I realised that I could write interesting blog posts about my experiences with creating and selling my own Self-Published Publications online.

In some other replies on other threads I already explained some things about
how I connect with you as a reader. 

To be able to write compelling interesting and perhaps even engaging blog posts about my Self-Publishing experiences, I - ASK - you;

'Do you have any Questions about Self-Publishing
you would like to see answered...? ? ?'

Or any specific Topics or (sub)topics you think I should include....? ? ?

Please let me know.

Thanks for your question,

As a blogger, I usually don't work on such big assignments as
actually writing a Book or a Novel, I usually work more on much shorter
writing assignments as writing Twitter tweets, Forum replies,
E-Books/-Reports and Blog posts....,

I do however like your question,

It's a great basic question, that actually might be an interesting topic
to write more Blog posts about on my Writing Blog !

Since I do have a certificate in Screenwriting, I also read Books about writing Books/Novels, So I also do know some things about story structures etc. that might come in handy when writing about such a topic. 

On - The Writing Secret - page on my blog I somewhat already
started with giving a basic answer to your question.

Thanks for bringing up your question !

Hello to my new writer family! My name is Amanda and all I can say is that I hope I'm in the right place. I have dabbled in writing short stories since I was in high school, and at one time, I tried my hand at some FanFiction. Then about five years ago, I was struck with an idea that took root and simply never went away. Unfortunately, shortly after starting my first book, my life had other plans and I was forced to take a step back from writing. Then about a year ago, inspiration struck once again and I have worked diligently to finally finish my first book out of three. Ok, it's actually four.

There have been many bumps in the road, but I am proud to say that I finally completed it. Sort of. I'm sure some of you will understand what I mean when I say that I am my own worst critic, and while I am trying to navigate my way through understanding what it takes to share my writing with the world, I find myself feeling lost. Which is why I am here. To seek knowledge and gain a better understanding from those with a lot more experience than what I have. And if I'm going to be completely honest, to simply bond with people that understand the need to write and appreciate the work that goes into it.

With that said, I will stop rambling and just say that I look forward to "meeting" all of you and I can't wait to dive into all the creativity around here. I am open to any comments, questions or suggestions, so please feel free to message me. In the meantime, HAPPY READING!

Ask your God which prayer he'd prefer...then listen really hard...and wait.............. ;D
I really think you just need to grow a pair of balls.
If you have to ask, maybe YOU are not listening to Him  :o
