Let's Write!

Monday, April 16, 2018

I've finished the short story my grandson and I wrote, and wonder where do I go from here? I always have several projects juggling about somewhere, but the only one I think that might gather a following here is in a huge disarray. I've literally taken it apart so I can put like thoughts with like... Sign in to see full entry.

TAPS made an interesting comment on a post of mine that I'd like to address. In part, it said, "Your words must come fast and furiously." She's right, they do.

For the # RRBC short story writing contest, I'm working on a series of five 'horror stories.' Nothing blood-curdling or such, just some spooky stuff. I have two solid ideas so far, and a third running around my brain. If anyone has a 25 word (uhhh... give or take) story concept, I'd give them story... Sign in to see full entry.
