Correlating Change

I recently realized that some of the feedback I’ve gotten (repeatedly) on Sickybeat is seriously bothering me. So much so that I have not stopped thinking about it since the last time my “Reader Zero” repeated it. I was stewing over the fact that this feedback was more based on her stylistic preference, which IContinue reading “Correlating Change”

When Feedback Comes, at a Trickle; How to Keep a Story Alive.

As I wait to get writing feedback from some of my potential audience, it’s hard not to want to shout “Hurry UP!” and let loose a deep sigh. I can only do so much with the book as I wait on other eyes. I feel strange without a writing project in the works, but ifContinue reading “When Feedback Comes, at a Trickle; How to Keep a Story Alive.”

Winco is a Divisive Place.

In my previous blog entry I said I would be posting more, and more diverse styles of, content here. I was able to get better access to both hardware, a more up to date refurbished smartphone, and software, a more functional web browser, for creating! Thus, I am sharing some new recorded content from theContinue reading “Winco is a Divisive Place.”

Is it Trade,or Respect?

Many of the most valuable things humans contribute are undervalued, if they aren’t presented in an approachable, or easy to swallow manner. If an act of kindness is too difficult, it’s hard not to leave it undone Even if we may enjoy,Continue reading “Is it Trade,or Respect?”

Exhibit A, Your Honor.

This was an effort to broaden my descriptive tool repertoire, while not losing myself in the process. I love those meta___s and find them an effective way to get emotions across to readers in aContinue reading “Exhibit A, Your Honor.”

My Nasty Habit

I think in metaphor, and write in metaphor, A LOT. During another feedback session with my reader metaphor has come up again. The tool can be useful, but as with much in life, I’ve gone to the extreme while using them to paint my pictures. Maybe the tangle of metaphors is my way of doingContinue reading “My Nasty Habit”

Another Perspective: How To Eat an Elephant

I am AHEAD of schedule with the third cover/Title pairing! A difficult feat for the software on my laptop and my patience. This imagery shines a different light on the story of my 20’s. It shows the light that wouldn’t dim during that time. For those of you who know the elephant in the roomContinue reading “Another Perspective: How To Eat an Elephant”

It is a Strange, Weird, Day (Surprise Positive Development)

Folks, I have good news! I was able to create a second cover and title option I like. (The image at the top of this post.) This second one takes a different visual approach, the elements all tie to the story in unique ways! I won’t give anymore away than that, and I appreciate yourContinue reading “It is a Strange, Weird, Day (Surprise Positive Development)”
