Never Underestimate The Mind of a Champion. I'm trying to find inspiration for righting. I've suffered setbacks recently, especially in the local scene. The secret of writing is to forget the critics, except the editor who has given his word and appears truly committed. I'm writing a tragic love story, set in my city. I was planning a Romeo and Juliet story set in Kossovo. Too bad, there already is one (a true story I saw on CNN).
Writing I am transported. I can create whole other worlds, people that I fall in love with good and bad.I can be someone else, but I can still live outside when things get tough. When real life gets bad or boring, I can escape in my writing. It's a part of me.
Samuel Clemens rules! If you don't know who that is...move on. I am still trying to push three novels out of me and it ain't going well. (Yes, I used ain't, don't be an ass) I am looking for a well read gal who wants to see the US and maybe keep a journal of what a trucker has to deal with. The things I go through would make an amusing book for a beginner driver. Any scribes out there?
Writing matters... I'm a poet and aspiring writer of short stories, fairy tales, fantasy and erotic fiction. I'd like to meet other writers interested in at least some of these subjects to encourage and critique each others' work. Kind, smart, passionate and original are definite attention grabbers...
