001 (74)

I have very much beenenjoying the poetry of blogger-friends Éilis and Jane Dougherty lately, and felt inspired to dust off my word-smith’s hat and have a go myself. I wrote a lot of poetry in my youth, but quickly became disillusioned with the elitist snobbery I came across in this field of writi...

My blog post today was simply going to be about what I discovered while writing on my current WIP. It sort of turned serious in a place or two, and will probably be controversial. Opinions will differ from mine and I'm perfectly fine with that. The only thing I ask, is that if you comment, please... Read more of this blog post »

Vincent Lowry Vincent Lowry's blog:
I would let the crisp morning
air fill my lungs in relief when
seeing the ice I thought I'd lost
sparkle in glory upon the battlefields
of my nightmare.

I would rise to the new sun
like a child on a birthday,
my thoughts racing far from the grasp

Cargo Lock 5 by N.R. Burnette
The artistic choice wins. And loses.

When you write a novel, how much of your true vision do you create? How often do you make changes so that the character or story is something you think people will accept—even if your first thought is contrary? If you change your story to match a wider and mor... Read more of this blog post »

He just showed up at my door the other night, a little eight week old kitten. Who dumps a tiny kitten?

I tried to say no. Oh, I gave him some food and fixed up a sheltered box for him to sleep in, but I have no room in my house for any more cats.

He's as cute and sweet as can be. I walk out the h... Read more of this blog post »

C.S. Pacat C.S. Pacat's blog:
Exposition is the relaying of information, be it description, explanation, or background information.

I've found the most useful way of thinking about exposition in written narrative is by thinking about it in contrast to exposition in visual narratives such as, for example, comics.
