In the mind of a Writer

Refurbishing on good terms

I have been going through many different personal problems. . . my boyfriend and I of eight years decided to go our own ways. We just grew apart and wanted two different things. I hope he finds what and who he is looking for and is happy. . . I am genuine in my message. We have still decided to be friends.

I am also working on a short horror story for an anthology next year.

I have so far only finished 10 out of 25 flash fiction prompts. . . I know I wanted to finish them by the 15th, but I think I will try to give to the 20th. . . Which gives me about seven days to finish 15 prompts. . . you can read them and see the pictures (which I found from the Internet.) on my other blog. . . . http://Rebekah1213.wordpress.com
The current theme is Loki (from the Thor and Avenger movies).

I have had writer’s block, so these will not be done in order, but I will mark down which prompt I am doing and each will have a picture. I may post more than one per day, and there may be more than one day in between posts. I will Link them together when I am finished.

April 2014 so far. . .

What is going on. . .

Many of my online friends, who are writers, know that Camp NaNo just begun. I would love to start my second book of my vampire series, but I’m editing last year’s NaNoWriMo project so I can get the proof from createspace and get the final edit before June 30th. (This year we get two copies for only the fee of shipping.) (I also know I probably will not reach 50,000 words, between researching houses for my boyfriend, researching for book 2 of my vampire series, editing several projects, reading, and blogging etc., so I decided I just cannot do Camp NaNo this year.)

I don’t want to stop writing: I wrote over 100,000 words in the first quarter of 2014. . . I would love to keep it up, so I am writing blogs, short stories, story reviews. . . so if you have a short story preferably in the horror, suspense, occult, paranormal, or drama genres. (Please no Twilight fan fiction). I am willing to read your sent stories, and post an review. (If your story is not one of those genres, but you still want me to read, please just message me. My information is on the contact page.)

It is also the first time that I have decided to scrap a project. . . it was a short story about one of my ex’s. I think I have just changed too much as a person and a writer than to continue the way, I had been going with that story. . . However I think if I do write a story for closure. . . I will make sure I do it in one setting. . . that is why I never finished it, I kept saying I would finish it in another setting and it never happened. It’s been over five years since I had written it, (a lot has happened to me in five years. . .) However I cannot stand not finishing things. . . maybe it’s OCD. . . maybe it’s a just a closure issue. However very rarely do I not finish something that I start. (A piece of me feels like I have failed by not finishing, but I just cannot go back to that part of myself. . . it’s like a dark, dry place of land that will not grow new, valuable ideas.) Does anyone feel like this?

My goals for this month. . .

1. Write at least 25 blogs between this blog, my personal blog, and my spiritual blog
2. Edit Driving Lies Part 1
3. Get Proof for Driving Lies Part 1
4. Get some sleep
5. Work on some short stories

I’m published

I have a short personal story, “Changing Platforms,” published in Bridge of World put together and wrote by Teena Adams. 515M7EfV2FL__BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA278_PIkin4,BottomRight,-69,22_AA300_SH20_OU01_

In order to read my story you need to buy a copy. It’s just $2.99 on Kindle. (Part of the profits go to those fighting cancer. It has powerful stories and goes to a good cause.)

A quote from my short story: ” I feel I am my true self on the page.” Check it out.

My NaNoWriMo Plan for 2013

My NaNoWriMo Plan for 2013

 

First of all, I have three goals:
 1. Finish the Novella series I started NaNoWriMo 2011 called Driving Lies (Read below for details)

2. Finish two short stories I have been working on since before 2007: “He Said She Said” and “Darken Cake”

3. Work on Book 2 on my vampire series.

 

Extra things I want to do. . .

Edit: Book 1 Melzela and my paranormal book The Whispering Path

 

Normally in NaNoWriMo I would take an idea, create character profiles, outline in October and then in November write like crazy. However this year I am working on a project that been three year in the making. (It is actually is actually over ten years since this story idea started as a movie script I was writing in high school. I keep putting in on the back burner while I edit or write other pieces.) This makes me a rebel.

My muses and the characters have really made the story progress. . . first it was a script, and then it was an idea for novel with three parts that was written in two different perspectives. The novel eventually got too long, so I made into three novellas.

 

It is about a man with mechanical skills who takes his revenge on car accidents. He takes out those who get in his way. He destroyed most of Neve’s family, and when she found out it was him, she decided to get her own revenge.

 

My biggest goal is to finish the story Part 3, I just hope I get 50,000 words doing it.

New Story Review Corner

I had an idea. . . I was thinking of making a small review corner on my writing blog. I have been reading the book The Marshall Plan for Novel Writing and it says to read my genre. However I have learned I write in several genres: Paranormal; Occult; Vampire; thriller; drama; and mostly Horror. My favorite authors are Anne Rice and Stephen King.

What I was thinking was to read short stories or pieces of novels and give them reviews on my blog. I thought that if maybe I review a few others, then others would see and they could review as well. When I ask for feedback, I want to know if my characters are likable, and relatable. I want to know if my story is actually interesting. As a story-teller and writer, I basically want to know am I really bringing written art to the world or am I just wasting time? I want to know if there are others who want to read my work.

 

Fellow Writers. . . what I need for a review

  1. Title
  2. Pen name (Name you are publishing with)
  3. A link to the title, e-mail, or place where others can get your work.
  4. Webpages or other way that other people can ask questions about your work

 

  • I want no more than 50 computer pages 8×11.  No more than 25,000 words
    (If it part of a novel, then send me up 50 pages of most interesting part.)
  • You can add a picture. (No more than what wordpress allows, my blog is on word press)

 

This is how I plan to write my review.

  1. Title and author
  2. I want to write as little as one to two or as much as four to five sentences of summary.
  3. Then I will write some about the character/dialogue.
  4. Then I will write something about the storyline.
  5. Extra notes: if it made me emotional or I was able to relate. If it has adult material I would mention it here.
  6. Rating of 1to 5 pages. (5 pages is like 5 stars or a grade of an A.)
  7. Link to actual story.
