A BLOG ABOUT MY WRITING and THE THOUGHTS THAT DISTRACT ME

About

I am a 45 year old wannabe writer.  But, I’m already a magnificent storyteller.  I create stories in my head so often that it has become a natural subconscious habit.  It does’t take much for me to spin-off a story from any intriguing song, situation, tv show, a photograph, or whatever.  I’ve always wanted to be a writer since I was about eleven.  Problem is throughout all these years, I never practiced the craft, i.e. I never wrote.  I would just keep these stories in my head, complicated plots and all.

Now I am trying to practice the craft.  I’m not as good as I want to be.  I want to be able to retrieve the vivid stories from my head and bring them alive on pages in a book.  My stories are mainly for young adults to new adults (for me 14 to 26, or older).
I enjoy writing about the Beyond – those entities that are around us but we cannot sense them.  Other dimensions, the past (things that once were), time travel, and  life after death  are themes I visit in creating a story.   I also inject romance in there.  As a matter of fact,  romance seems to be at the center of all of my stories – someone is in love or wants love or whatever. 🙂

  1. I read all of the scenes you’ve posted from Life IS a Fairy Tale and I was very intrigued. You definitely have the talent, and I hope you will continue to write. I am a fan.

    • Wow. That means a lot to me. Thank you so much, my new favorite person :-). As you could probably tell, I still have a lot to learn. I saw a lot of similarities of my thinking in your post today, so I look forward to reading your future posts.

The Background: Swamp Scene in Avoyelles Parish

The scene is a swamp in Louisiana, my home state. It is also the setting of my beloved story that I will finish one day, even if I have to take it up to Heaven in a folder with a pen. God would say, "you're still carrying around that thing?" I would nod my head and give him a humble blink, my pen and paper in hand. He would then ask, "so how are you going to get it to your audience when you're done?" I would gulp and give him another humble blink. Then I'd look down at my work and a grin would grow on my face . . . (you won't get it until after you read my book, once I do finish it. . .)
