As I said in the last post everyone has a story in them somewhere. We all come from some lace and we all have had some sort of lives little straggles. It seems now that I am learning more about creative writing I see a new story everywhere I go. As I live life now I am opening my mind up to exploring different ideas with each new place we go. Even some of the old places. I thought of a story just the other day while at the mall. Fiction is just that fiction, not true, made up. But remember all of it does not have to be made up. We can use places we visit and things we know to write now stories. In reading Stephen King’s book on writing I found a new way to look around me and I also found that I can write about what I know without writing manuals.
I am working now on a book or maybe a short story is really depends on how it unfolds. I am also attending creative writing classes to attempt to learn even more about the craft of writing. It is of course just as much of a craft as working with wood or welding metal. There is an art to writing and there are rules that are meant to be broken.
The main thing to remember if you are entering into this craft called writing is this; do it for you for the love of writing and telling a story. If you get wrapped up in the thoughts of making money you would be better off learning the craft of wood working or maybe welding?
A final note is to write and write often hence this blog. I try to also work on my book at least every evening writing as much as a scene a evening. If I don’t I think I would loose track of my story all together. Last I downloaded a app for my cell phone that allows my to type thoughts for future stories when ever I am out and about. This will always give me a place or a topic for my next story.
