Hello Guys

A new week, and although the handles come off my fridge and my hubbies PC is dying I’m oddly in an optimistic mood.

I worked last week on the start of a tale for you guys called “You’re next!”

Have a read and vote if you want more. I have finished the first round of edits and I am in the process of typing up the bonus short for the fist instalment of Poisoned By Blood series. I will keep you apprised on what’s going on with that.

With the series I have added short’s at the end but I was wondering if you guys want me to put some on her and put the password for bonus content in the book. Let me know what you guys think.

I’m also going through some of my old poems and reading them to see if they are worth sharing and will post any that pass inspection.

 

Happy writing guys

Hello.

Have you ever found that when you follow the rules to the letter put your pronouns and nouns in the right place along with your comma’s and apostrophes it gets in the way of the flow of the story. I know you need to know the rules and know how to break them but not all writers know each individual rules by heart and nor can their brain store that information.

When I write I write from the heart and my brain just allows the words to flow and the rules only come into account during the proofreading and editing stage. It physically and emotionally hurts when I do the proof reading and editing as it is my baby that is getting edited.

Am I the only one that feels this way?

How do I try to survive my book being torn apart?

The wedding is next week some I’ll probably be quite for a while then, with luck, should be back in earnest. xx

I am at my volunteer job and working hard on a set of photo’s for an exhibition about Ekphrasis in which Sandra, a good friend of mine and my self are being exhibited.

I have chosen several pictures for the event and I hope they are approved. If you ever get the chance get involved in Ekphrasis do it.

It is a strange concept to begin with but it soon pays dividends and works to your advantage.

I enjoy it. I still use it and can’t wait for the exhibition and to see how things go. I have been asked to take pictures of the event and I can not wait. It is the same day of my test for my Level 2 English and then I can maybe start my level 3.

Apologies about being absent, the wedding and writing has taken over.

Stay Tuned

Hi,

Hope you’re all well.

I am currently working on several project at the moment with various people and various tales.

I may have a model for my new tale which is Stir of Echo’s meets the Grudge with my twisted little take on it.

A tale of a woman hell-bent of tearing the men who killed her apart.

There is also a murder mystery horror which should be good, really good. I can’t wait for mine n the hubby’s office to be sorted then I can knuckle down, get book one out there and book two finished.

Happy Writing

Hello Writers

Another early morning where i am wide awake. Partially pain, partially over active mind. I have been looking over the last few weeks and realised a few things.

1/ the posts that get the better readers are the How to’s and the small fictions.

2/ I really need to post on a daily basis.

Well good news.

I have around four posts I am in the process of writing to put up on here for you guys. Most are how to;s and information, there are others that are in my mind, fermenting, that are small fictions.

I am also going to, I know I’ve said this so many times, post up the revised fist chapter of “Teenage Visions”. I am also using it with all the how to’s i am doing so don’t you go nicking my idea. **Giggle**

I have also joined Pintest but I am still finding my way around it at the moment. Will let you know how I get on.

I am also trying to work on the cover for “Twisted Coven”. A long long process. I have sent one contact off, more to go out. Just trying to balance that, the wedding plans and so many other things.

Stay tuned, there’s some cool stuff coming.

Hello

I may have an addiction. Well, more than one. It seems that, as my addiction to the dark, sumptuous, sensual velvety taste of chocolate, I seem to hold an addiction to stationary, I am a writer, I use that as my excuse, I have been good of late but yet I yearn for a new note books, a pen type I havent got or a folder with gothic pictures even though I have ones I haven’t even used yet.

My other addiction, and it is good for me, is writing I come up with ideas at a moments notice. Some are stand alone novels like ‘Mirror Image’ and ‘Dead College Girls Cry’ but as well as the ‘White Witch Saga’ trilogy it turns out we may have another book series. This time a book about vampires, not witches and demons. I am still messing around with ideas for names. So expect a few polls popping up soon.

Writing is therapeutic and I have, after several years off abstinence, taken up keeping a detailed journal. It was suggested in a meeting at Mind.

I enjoy writing, it is my entire life, well nearly, I have the love of my life still. Writings makes me smile. It makes me laugh, it makes me feel like I am someone and that I have talent. I think that was the pain talking. So it is hard work fitting it in at the moment. It is hard to consider, seriously, my life if I had no creativity with a pen or a pencil.

The wedding draws closer and the planning has gone into hyper-drive.

I smile when I, occasionally, writing something on twitter that is absolutely detailed and horrific. It makes me  smile when  post stuff and you guys look and like.

I think I am going to have a few more, small, bits of fiction for you.

I have a post on inspiration and another few posts with info and advice in there. and a few poll. So the next few days will be interesting reading.

Happy writing guys

Hello fellow writers.

Yes I really did do a post at nearly three this morning, I know, I need sleep. I really do. Hopefully tonight.

Okay, this is the day I finally give you the way I have recently been taught to plan. It may take several posts and I will use Teenage Vision to show you the ease  of the new planning.

If, like me, you already have a sort of plan in your head when the story formulates there this just follows it through for you and will make the actual writing of the story more planed and makes you less likely to waffle.

So you start with this,

A young teenage girl wakes one morning to a normal day, she heads to school to complete a test and while in creative writing class she begins to see people as demon, deformed creatures. She goes to the nurse who worries that what happened to her mother might happen to her. Her friend takes her home to the large house in which she lives with her father, half-brother and stepmother. While there the best friend tells her that her (the main character) is a witch, like her mother and has the power of true sight which explains why she can see demons and even the dead bodies that have recently started to appear in the last affluent area of the town.

As the teens vision develops, she learns that she is the key to ending the demonic control of her town but she has to stay under the radar and not tip their hand. Though she doesn’t like the idea of saving the town eventually she realises that for her safety and the safety of her father she better had try to figure out what is going on.

The end confrontation reveals several shocking truths and the young girl has to battle the one person who would stop her in her tracks. The battle is a messy one and the outcome is good for her side it is not ideal as there are still many of them in the area.

So this is a basic plan, a very basic plan. This would then turn in to this, even more basic. For the following MC = Main Character.

MC drives to school with best friend MC see’s her creative writing teacher as a demon, his true face.

MC see’s the nurse who is worried she is developing her mothers psychosis.

MC is driven home by best friend and see people with glowing around them and bodies that have been cleaned up

MC’s best friend tells her that she is able to see people’s true face and works through some of the confusion.

MC is worried about her father and brother when she realised her step mother is one of them.

MC is included in a ‘coven’ meeting where they confess to her that they know who and what she is.

MC discovers that her maternal bloodline is the key to ending the demonic control of the small affluent town.

MC rebels against the idea of being the saviour and tells them to find someone else.

MC realises that if she does nothing ‘they’ will bleed her father dry of everything and kill him leaving her with nothing and out in the cold.

MC joins the battle and is shocked by a revelation as to why she can see people’s true faces.

MC wins the battle and the demons spread but she realises that while they are out there her and her father are at risk.

MC has to think about her half-brother who is half demon and is completely in her care and, as of yet, is completely innocent.

 

So this is the basic skeleton of the story, the basic idea.

You go through each of the above lines and underneath add a little more description such as;

MC is driven home by her best friend and see’s people with glowing around them and bodies, that have been cleaned up.

As she is driven home she looks out of the window and see’s people some with a blue glow, some with a red glow, some with scaly skin with evil dragon like eyes and the bodies lying in the gutter surrounded by a red blood pool.

This can be a short as possible but it is to help you stay on point with they story.

Do this for all the main elements of the story and you will notice that the plan while detailed still gives you wiggle room. It also helps you figure out where you may need more action and where you may need more back story to help highlight the characters, bad and good.

Wow, managed to do it all in one post, I’m surprised at that.

Okay, going to do my homework then the short walk to college, and see what Julie thinks of the characters in the vigilante Killer.

Catch you all later.

Happy Writing

Hello Fellow Writers

As I sit here, wondering if I should write, do some submission stuff, research or just procrastinate and mess about on face book I suddenly realise several things.

Firstly that I should be proud that my first novel is complete and ready for publication. Those of you that are copy editors my disagree and the same with the proofreader’s but from what I can do it is done. I am happy with the story, with the characters and with the subtext. Though I am tempted to add more subtext in placed, I feel that if I do I will make the story more complicated and confuse the character with information that may never come to light. There is one thing I will add which is near the end.  It is a carefully placed sentence that makes the name of the Saga make complete sense.

Secondly I have unwillingly and unknowingly contributed to the negative view of the Pagan religion, not something I want to do, being pagan myself I know how detrimental this can be. Hopefully book two and three will redeem me in the eyes of my fellow Pagans.

Thirdly, it is one hell of an achievement, people often say “I’m going to write a book and it will be great!” I actually have written a book, with several more in the making, and I have every intention to get it printed.

Being a fiction/thriller/suspense writer I feel it would be in my best interest to have an agent. I am not a business woman nor am I a lawyer. I need someone to help me deal with the business and help me deal with the paperwork and such that it involves. I have worked in the privet business  and in sales and though I was good at both I would not view them as worthy while experience for me to pitch an English author writing a story based in Washington State, Walla Walla county. I have changed the name of the town, but not the county. It makes it so much easier when dealing with distances and such.

Now is just the task of finding an agent, one I get on with and one who will have my best interests at heart. A rare thing when money is involved but let’s just hope I managed to find a good one and that the book does well. I really hope it does.

Hi guys

 

Hope you are all well, I have enjoyed your comments on my previous posts, though I haven’t posted them all. Apologies for that but I have to think about my fellow writers reading my blog. So I have to keep comments that are, well, less sex related.

I apresiate all comments though.

I have been quiet for the last few days as I have been suffering with the flu. only just started to feel strong enough to do anything properly. Not a good start to the year but I will get there. I looked like a chipmunk on saturday as my glands were swollen.

Have a few projects that have come to mind while I was full of a fever. Will update you on those and I am looking at the drafts for Teenage Visions moments after I post this.

Please email me with anything you want me to look at to paganhorrorwriter@gmail.com
