Writing can be hard and fun at the same time! I prefer the fun of course, but the hard also comes with it!
No matter! At least I have come up with some children’s story titles for the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories contest. That at least gets my foot in the door for writing the story.
To which I had better get cracking as I want to read what I have at my critique group meeting this Thursday at the Wellington library,
I will let guys know how that will go later on in the week. So until next time… William out’
I had to reblog this, Funny as hell…
My goals for writing during the next few weeks have changed. You see the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories contest is starting this May 1st and so that is where my focus is going to be. I have entered this contest before and to tell the truth is quite fun to do and it really is an opportunity for unpublished authors like myself. Don’t get me wrong I will harken back to my sci-fi story in due time. Sometimes it’s good to take a break from one project in order to be able to come back to said project with fresh eyes. Also I like to give myself a shot at the $5000 dollar prize and a publishing contract with Simon and Schuster.
I will keep on writing my poetry as well as post here to let you guys know what is happening. Now if any of you people are interested in this contest, here is the link… If some of you guys enter, then I sincerely wish you the best of luck. This is a very popular contest for the obvious reasons. I wanted to thank Ron Rauss for his very nice and encouraging comments regarding the contest. He mentioned that it is a great experience to enter and even more special to win it! Ron should know because he is the 2010 Cheerios Spoonful of Stories winner with his story “Can I Just Take a Nap?” If you would like more information about him here is the link.
Now since the contest is due to start in about 6 days it be best that I start writing now as I would like to have something ready to go when the contest starts. So until next time…William out!
Normally I use this blog to document how I’m doing regarding my writing. But when I did start this blog I said to myself if something major happened during the day that I would post my feelings here about it. That something major occurred in the great city of Boston during the Boston Marathon.
First let me say this from the bottom of my heart. that my thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families in their time of need. The same goes to the responders who with great courage, went into the danger zone, not knowing if the attack was over or just beginning, and helped the victims when they needed it the most.
As for the perpetrators of this heinous act, it is indeed my hope that the cowards will be brought in to face justice. That’s about all I got to say. So until next time… William out!
Cool poem by James here. I thought you might like to read it!
I reached 500 likes on this blog. I’m pretty proud of that feat and I hope that I get a lot more likes in the future! Right now I am writing some poetry for the poetry chapbook. I find myself doing that when I get tapped for ideas in writing my novel. I think that is a good way of keeping the muse in good working order. That and posting here on the blog. I wanted to thank you guys for all the likes regarding my last post as I wasn’t sure if I’d make the critique group meeting last week due to bad weather. As you guys know I made it just fine and although I did not read my work, I had a good time with my friends.
I checked to see if the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories is on and so far no dice. I will check again though as I want to compete in that contest. Note to self, start writing children’s stories so that I will have some to submit when the contest starts. I think it’s best to have something written and then tweaked a couple of times before submitting. At least I get a better chance of winning by so doing.
Now don’t get me wrong. I’m still working on the sci-fi novel. It’s just sometimes I get bogged down and need to stand back and look at the work from a different perspective. I need to sometimes just put it down, walk away and then come back with a fresh mind and write. This way things get done, progress is made, and I’m a lot happier individual for doing so. At least I’m not tearing my hair out. Check that! I’m bald to begin with! Oh well…maybe I won’t throw something instead!
Now here is a little horror haiku for you guys. It’s called “She is undead!”
She is Undead.
She offers her neck.
His fangs accept the offer.
Now she is undead.
Well it’s time for me to move on to other aspects of writing so until next time…William out!
