I hope that your Wednesday morning will be a good one! I have been re-working my sci-fi story “A Change in Time’ for the past few days. It seems like I have been doing this for a long time. But it needs to be done. I have been even toying around with a title change too (A Moment in Time). What do you guys think? Please leave a comment or a suggestion below on the comments link.
I have been listening to Garth Brooks song “If TomorrowNever Comes”. One hell of an emotional song. I highly recommend it if you have a loved one so you can listen to it together and hopefully you can appreciate each other better because of the experience. I have been inspired to write some poetry because of it. It is one hell of a song.
I have also been working on a “how to” book. I know that there are a lot of writers that are just starting out, and just like me, didn’t have a clue about how to go about writing the story. Well this project is going to tell about how to write character, setting sketches and the eight plot points of a three act story. I figure it this way. If I get stuck while writing the sci-fi story, then I could go to the how to project and do some writing there.
And if that doesn’t work out , then maybe I can write some poetry for the poetry chapbook that I may some day publish, or I can certainly post here at WordPress just to let you guys know how I’m doing. Speaking of which I really appreciate you guys reading my drivel. It simply makes me feel like I accomplished something when I post here.
Well enough of my blathering for right now I have to get back to my projects. So until next time…William out!
I hope that your evening is going well. My topic tonight is going to be on the power of the written word. The same power that evokes an emotional response from your reader. I learned about that power tonight. You see earlier today my nephew Chris had to put down his favorite dog “Willis” due to a neuromuscular disease that kept the dogs mouth frozen shut. So knowing today would be our favorite and very loving, pit bull’s final day, I set out to write a loving remembrance of him.
Now when I was writing the poem, I felt the emotional connection and swore that I would not cry when I read it. But I knew that would not be possible. Half way through I had to stop. The voice trembling and cracking. And with tears streaming on down the sides of my face I finished reading the poem. There was not a dry eye in the place.
When used correctly the power of the written word can evoke very strong emotions in the reader. I know me and my family felt those emotions today. So I will end this post by saying… I love you Wilts. You are in the Good Lord’s hands. May he love and protect you always…Until next time…William ou
