As things heat up in my country for our local government elections in September, I cannot help but think about this poem. How sometimes as writers we have to say things indirectly so that our messages will still be heard. Read. Check out the peom if you haven’t already and happy writing!
Thank you for keeping up with the prompts. I am grateful to those of you who have responded to them and linked your posts to my site, especially Piggie’s Place and Monicle. Thanks for sharing your work! And Teagan, thanks for the comments and the shout out!
Unfortunately, this will be the last month of prompts, so after today there will only be two more. Feel free to check out the Writing Prompts tab on the Homepage for ones you might have missed. Or discover more writing ideas by visiting my two blog communities. I am amazed and inspired by the dedication and the level of work from these talented people!
Starting on July 1st, 2015 I will be taking a brief hiatus for the first two weeks of the month. At this point it is essential and hopefully I will return with many ideas. I would really like to continue my posts on writing, do something on screenwriting and maybe go a second round with my serial.
Early this year I had a very unpleasant head cold. So I gave my characters, Felicity and Cornelis, nasty head colds too — and funny, sneezing chaos ensued.
Last weekend I barely found time to write Episode-21, and was a day late with it. This weekend I had my every-other-Friday off. But all that day I couldn’t manage to find enough energy to get myself to write (or much of anything else). I’m just really tired… So I related to these images of old rusted abandoned trains.
It occurs to me that this is neither inspiring nor energizing to the reader…
Anyway, I wondered what would happen if once again, I gave some characters my own issues. An exhausted Copper would simply take a nap. Felicity would probably get grumpy with Cornelis. And he would likely pop off somewhere for alone time. But what might Absinthe, the Green Fairy do?
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
