A place for pondering the significant and not-so-significant happenings around me. A place for practicing my writing craft and interacting with my audience. A place to share and a place to care. My blog.
Okay, you've got me wondering...what's the story behind the shift to 'favorite sayings'?????
Okay... I've been busy. The quarter is ending, grades were due, I have to do a bunch of reporting to the parents of special ed students, and I missed pondering and posting. So I've been thinking of snippets of my philosophy of life that have been hanging around... my favorite sayings. Next week I should get back to pondering a bit more at length. Also, I'm trying to push myself to write in different styles: fiction, non-fiction, reflective, humorous, with dialogue, with or without pictures, poetry, and in this case: proverbs. What novels have you written since you don't write poems? Are you famous? Or unpublished? Or not really a novelist? Inquiring mind wants to know! ;-)
I started writing novels around age 11, and no, I'm not published yet BUT this last one I wrote, I think is The One. Gotta start finding an agent.I do whatever strikes my fancy...used to be a lot of sci-fi (yes, even I wrote a Star Trek book) but now I just go where creativity leads me. In this case, to a historical romance. Go figure.(Don't worry. I'm leaving all the heaving bosoms to the professionals. Stuff like that embarrasses me, haha)
Wow. The longest thing I ever wrote was a 50+ pager Master's thesis: An undervalued variable - Does your writing teacher write.I'm thinking of trying some Haikus, just for the fun of it. They're kind of literary favorite sayings severely constrained by format.
