Fan Fiction

July 9, 2007

Fan Fiction does not interest me too much. Most of it is poorly written, which is a shame because some of the stories I have come across have had so much potential. It is hard to read fan fiction when the author tries to write it like they think a [Keep Reading]

Murder Mystery Night

June 13, 2007

I’ve found my next writing project, or more like it found me. It is going to be a challenge but I am up for it. I have never been into the murder mystery genre but when my father said he’d been asked to write and host a murder mystery night, I [Keep Reading]

My First Novel – Done?

June 1, 2007

Well I just finished it. My very first novel. It’s called 4 Wheels and a Piece of Maple. It is about an Aboriginal boy from a small and isolated First Nations Reserve who gets exposed to skateboarding culture and it not only changes his life, but [Keep Reading]

Writing…Break…Writing…Movie…Writing

May 28, 2007

So the ever elusive Part 3 of my novel came together a bit today. I am now up to page 199. I don’t know why this portion of the book has been so difficult to write. Part 1 and 2 seemed to come to me with very little effort. The story is nearly [Keep Reading]

River of Distraction

Part 3 of my novel has been the hardest part for me to write. I worked on it last night for a few hours and got up to page 187. I’m still house-sitting. I’ve been working on their laptop computer. They also have the Internet here so I have [Keep Reading]

How Can Words Be Property?

April 25, 2007

I just can’t put down this book by Robert J. Sawyer. Mindscan is a great read that actually touches on some interesting issues concerned with the act of writing. It is an entertaining book and fun to read but it keeps giving me things to think [Keep Reading]

Fiction Writing – Where Does It Come From?

April 20, 2007

I just finished writing Chapter 12 of my novel and I introduced a new character in it. I wasn’t planning on having this character in my story. In my mind, I had a rough idea of where I was going with the story and I had already introduced the [Keep Reading]

Secret Origins

April 19, 2007

When I was a teenager I got a spiral notebook in a dollar store. I paid for it myself and deliberately picked it out because it was divided into three subjects or sections. One section was to be for poetry, one was to be for rough notes, and the [Keep Reading]
