It’s been a little while, since I have been on here. I appoligize for that, but life got in the way. Life, is what we face as writers, and what can get in the way of writing. This also means that yes, I’ve been a bad girl, for I have not written for a while. Althought, I have not been writing for a while, I have however, been doing research.
Yes, research on writing, publishing, and writing. I went to the Mile High MFA Creative Writing Open House that was hosted at Regis University at the end of July, and one thing that came back to me was that I need to study my craft. My craft can be broken down into fiction, and from there down to Fantasy. Furthermore, as a writer I need to work on structure of my book.
So that I one goal, that I have set for myself. The other is how I can participate in the writing community. Yes, I have gone to a couple of writing conferences, such as the Castle Rock Writing Conference that they have once a year in the fall, which I have enjoyed for they bring up a variety of topics. But I feel that there is more that I can do to encourage those that want to write to write.
The other things that I have been doing, is watching the latest season of Game of Thrones. Yes, I’m a Game of Thrones fantic, and this is in fair fact due to I’m a fantasy buff. This also comes into the heading of studying your craft. But this is what we do as writers is watch or read how someone else did something and we take into the corner work or tweak it so that we can make it ours.
Furthermore, since I have not been on this site for a while, I have thought about how I could make this site better, or rather how can I get some of my work out there, and one thing came to find: poetry. Yes, I know some people don’t like poetry and others enjoy it, so I published some of it here, under the new section called “Poetry.”
Under the section, there are currently four poems. I hope to add more, but I am still making decisions around that part of it. If I have not said it before, this site is a work in progress. I’m still looking at what I should and should not add to this site. I know one thing for sure, I will have a section on tools for writing, which will include a list of resources for writers.
I can tell you, that I’m working on things for the press, on my writing, and on this site. If you like what you have heard, or would like to hear more, or have suggestions on things, please, comment down below.
