Today we did a prompt based on a photo. We were to pick one and answer a few questions and then write a 500 word scene. I wrote it, but it didn’t go so well for me. I had a hard time coming up with a story line, and then once I did, and wrote it, and edited it, it evolved into something I didn’t intend to write, at first. As to of this sparked a longer story… nope. It was all I could do to get these words out. I don’t particularly have a connection with the person in the photo that I chose. It was difficult to determine, story […]
It’s Wednesday, and instead of yammering about how I haven’t written much lately and how much of a slacker I feel about that, I thought I would actually, you know… write. I found this meme called Letters I’ll Never Send and one of the topics is to write to The One(s) That Got Away…
Haven’t done this for a few weeks, so here’s a snip! This is from All I Wanna Do, a novel length serial about the ultimate fan girl fantasy– meeting, dating, and falling in love with a member of the band… except that it’s not as glamorous as one might imagine. In this scene, my lovebirds have had their biggest blowout yet and Serena has temporarily moved out, expecting JC to come after her. But he doesn’t and now she’s stuck. This conversation is between her and his brother:

The image of rain has been rolling around in my head for quite a while. I was trying to figure out if it was supposed to be metaphoric or symbolic, but it just wasn’t coming to me. I guess I was trying too hard, because last night I cued up Youtube and listened to the sound of rain (my writing soundtrack lately) and started writing. Still not quite what I was going for, but it has been haunting me for a long time, so maybe now it’ll leave me alone! Check it — The Nature Show, The Rain Dance:
Same line over and over. Soon the end will come.
Today in my romp through my archive of posted work, I came upon a story I tried to write a few years ago but it didn’t take off. I got one good chapter and never wrote anymore. It was actually my first attempt at an Alternate Universe story and it was meant to continue around to the lives of all five members. What I got of it was okay. Maybe someday I’ll finish it or give it to someone who could make it work. This snip is from Friday Night Poker Club (fan fiction): A short time later, headlights lit up the living room as Justin pulled into the garage. […]
This was a response to a prompt from the Line by Line prompt community on LiveJournal. These were so useful for great exercises. You get a grouping of words and you have to use them in the piece. The words are: she just couldn’t help herself.
Snippet Sunday: Same Time Next Week
I have no idea why I named it that, except the decision that my female MC, Gabby, needs to make is such a no brainer. Duh. Here’s a snippet from that story, which will be posted in its entirety at the fanfiction archive and my personal archive. “Your mom, she’s okay?” “More than okay. It was just me and her for a long time, you know? She put herself through nursing school, put me through school. She made it work.” “She must have given you your spunk.” “If that’s what you want to call it, yeah. I’m proud of her. When I graduated, she went back for another degree. And […]
