Seems like every day I see someone posting a writing prompt. Do people read, or for that matter need a prompt to write? Tough for me to understand how anyone would want to write but needed a prompt to figure out a subject. I know I have posted about this before but it seems odd, at least, to me. Oh well, as kids said a decade ago Whatever!
|One of my writing spaces - the one where I need to spend more time|
Not sure why but with two works in progress I went off track and have been working on a short story these past two evenings. Where do storytellers get their ideas? Well, this one I was trying to go to sleep and I started thinking about a story for Valentines Day. Pretty odd for me, I never have thought much about, good or bad, Valentines Day. It always seemed a bit too commercial and contrived to me. Could be that after having some success selling my book of Christmas short stories I couldn’t resist writing one more short, but in February.
|Where I spend more time writing - what a mess, but it works|
Meanwhile, I am getting some work on my novel and some on my nonfiction. At this point, I am seriously thinking about getting the app with the graphs to show where I am with each of the books I am working on. Without the graphics, I will do it the old fashioned way.
Fiction Book – The Night of the Buffalo Moon 12,521 of 60,000 and, my yet unnamed nonfiction book 4,659 of 60,000. I am also still editing my, young adult, historical fiction novel. I’m 2/3 through with my first edit, which leaves me two more go-throughs before I decide to publish, send to readers or to an editor.
|My Ideas start here place|
Oh, one last thing, the Valentines Day tale, stands at 2,653 of 3,200 words.
