Obstacle #3: Character(s)

Hoozah, I made it to a third post!

As I mentioned in my last post, I inspired myself by mentioning creating characters. Well, it sounds very duh, as they’re essential to a good story, but I hear there’s a method to that madness, or rather, several methods.

This is where I must come clean… I don’t really adhere to methods or conventions, but that’ll be further discussed in next week’s post.

Obstacle #2: P.O.V, First vs Third Person

Second post of my Obstacle Series. I think I’ll post them on Fridays, that way I have a weekend and the week to mull over the topic… IF I can find more topics. (Hint hint: give me suggestions!)

Today’s topic is point of view! Whether you’re writing for your high school/college English class with a carte blanche topic or writing a story you want to submit to a contest, you probably wonder sometimes about which P.O.V to use. (Oh you don’t? Great, see you next week!)

Obstacle #1: Words, Feedback & Languages

I might or might not be starting a “series” based on varying obstacles we face while writing. I don’t want to make a promise in case I break it, but I’ll try to update at least a few of these.

If you’re a writer, and most us have to be at some point, you know the pain of picking the “right” word. Read Me More…

Nice To Meet You!

Hello there! Or perhaps welcome back?

I can’t believe I’m already updating, but I can see how dangerously addicting this can get… So, what writing have I accomplished since yesterday after spending hours configuring, revamping and updating my blog? None. Well, unless you count this, does this count? Read Me More…

Open For Business!

What a grand, exhausting day today was. My 3rd year students graduated (tears were shed and laughter shared), I figured out (some of) this WordPress business, and in the matter of a single day, preparations are complete!

Baby Steps

I’ve taken another baby step towards my dream of becoming a writer. Although technically, I’m already a writer, so let’s say a (soon to be) published writer?

Updates will most likely be slow – not only because my perfectionist side gets in my way, I get in my own way too – but mostly because a) I’m still figuring out this whole WordPress business, and b) I’m still not sure exactly how I’m going to ‘publish’ anything because what I had in mind was radically different. So, with that in mind, don’t expect something new every week.

Comments and feedback I love, so if you read something of mine and just can’t help yourself, by all means, let me know what my writing did to you, and I’ll bake you a (n internet) cookie! 😉
