Review My Work / Re: Salem, Ch. 1 and 2
« Last post by j2burg on May 26, 2020, 01:00:59 PM »
Hi, I agree with the other comments; nice imagery but you are telling and not showing us the story.

Of course, a story will have a mix of showing and telling, but you should really start a book with showing us some action.

For example you write- “There is a lot of spirituality in Lily Dale.”
Why not give us a funny or tense opening scene that shows this. It could include some interesting local characters or a particular incident.

Good luck!

Review My Poetry / Re: a thousand deers passing
« Last post by ssilvs on May 25, 2020, 11:47:13 PM »
Hi. Is this poem about two legged dears or four legged deer? If its about 4 legged deer, it reads like the writer is suffering from 'deer fever'  Not quite sure which deer/dear this poem is about. Welcome back to MWC.

no clue! thanks

Yes, I write everyday. Whether it is adding to an unfinished story, participating on forums like this one, editing or creating a lyric or making money on a content mill.....I write everyday.

I thoroughly enjoy writing.

Looking forward to helping as many as I can!

I read Michael Schiavo's book. The behavior of Terri's parents, Governor Jeb Bush, and all the other Buttinskis was reprehensible. MYOB please.

I don't rely on books. My opinion is based on court documents-beginning in 1990;when the Theresa Schiavo case was first opened in Pinellas County, Florida.By the way: I have every court document on the case. Thank you for expressing your opinion.

There once was a cowboy in drag
and the Indian who called him a fag
so they decided to pray
As to which one was gay

In order to write a story plot one must fully understand what a story plot is.  There are many articles on the internet that give examples of story plots. Best of luck in your writing.   jt

story plot

Plot is a literary term used to describe the events that make up a story, or the main part of a story. These events relate to each other in a pattern or a sequence. The structure of a novel depends on the organization of events in the plot of the story.
