Back in…October or so, when Allison put up her poem book on Google Drive for her beta-readers, I read this one poem that made me cry…and then inspired me to, whilst sobbing, write more details. I ended up with a page-long flash fiction, and haven’t done anything with it since. I haven’t even edited it.
But I knew it was good, so I figured I should probably publish it on here. The story line is absolutely NOT mine, I totally stole that from Allison’s poem. But somehow the emotions just articulated themselves into words like they rarely do, and I felt this as I wrote it…even though I’ve never experienced it. I’m an INFJ. XD Anyway, without further ado.
Recently I was quite disturbed by an Instagram post by a photographer I respect and admire. This woman, who says she’s a believer, posted something of this nature: “I’m a Christian. I love Jesus. But let’s admit it, I cuss a little. I read questionable romance novels. And I want to shoot your wedding no matter what your relationship is and whatever you identify as.” (Paraphrased.)
Hey guys! I have something a little different for you all today…I’m releasing another short story! This one I wrote in one sitting after being inspired by a picture, and hardly did any editing…some things just happen like that. I love this story. It’s one of the favorites I’ve ever written! Since it’s so short, I’m not going to publish it on Amazon but just post it in my blog post. I hope you all enjoy!
February went by with a breath; in a blink. Somehow, the month that usually seems to creep by went faster than ever this year. Now it’s March. The other night, I heard crickets. If there’s one thing about winter nights, it’s that they are silent. The crickets chirping; the robins perched on the bare tree branches; the tiny buds on the peach trees and the scent of living, growing things remind me of a sensation that comes but once a year – spring.
Good afternoon, folks, may I have your attention, please?
I just wrote a short story.
Hey, y’all! You ready for another post on writing tips?
Punctuation is yet another very important part in writing. Without it, many things wouldn’t make sense – or worse, many things may come across differently. Have you ever noticed how hard it is to read long sentences without commas? No? Well, here’s an example out of my absolute favorite book: David Copperfied, by Charles Dickens.
Warning: This post is about blogging. It is written with aspiring bloggers and blogger wanna-bes in mind. HOWEVER, even if you are a non-blogger, I think you will enjoy this post about a little bit behind the scenes of blogging.
Well, today I’m going to talk a bit about blogging. You might ask what the title means. I named this post, “Why Three Hours?” because I remember a conversation I had once with a fellow blogger. I was saying that it took me 2-3 hours to make a post. Her response was, “Wow, it only takes me 20 minutes!” So I decided to explain what it takes to make a post. Also, I have a couple bad blogging habits I’m sharing at the end!
