Once More With Feeling Writing Prompts: Day 5
April 13, 2017 Leave a comment
I just realized that though I wrote this one by hand, I never actually got it onto wordpress. Well here I go, posting it quick to keep myself from defaulting on my own word. Once more with feeling prompts day five is: Begin with “Today I will…” and write for ten minutes.
Today I will work hard to not only get my blog writing done, but I will start to organize my different stories. I really want to get one finished and out there, even if it’ is just in e-book form. I know I have 1NS finished, but not all in one place. I just have to locate where all my handwritten pieces of it are.
Sometimes I think I should limit myself to short stories or at least shorter stories. It’s hard though. A “short” story for me could take some time. It’s time that I actually have something to show for myself though. I still love writing, so why haven’t I gotten published yet? There’s nothing and no one standing in my way except myself and my own self-doubt.
I was looking through my small filing drawer next to my computer and rediscovered a story I hadn’t yet committed a name to. But it’s good. I don’t know. It’s easy for the person that created a piece to say they like it, but for me it actually isn’t. I’m my own worst critic sometimes (read mention of self-doubt from earlier) I can honestly say that I was really enjoying this one though! It’s about a woman in her twenties who likes to role-play on the weekends with friends. A new guy is introduced to the group and she finds out they have a little history. Suddenly she starts to find her resolve to keep from dating in the group is weakening. Add to that, her ex-boyfriend seems to be interested in picking up where they left off, and you have a recipe for some gamer angst.
Today I’m going to get those pieces for that story together and I’m going to work hard on it right after I get 1NS together…yep! I’m gonna do it!
