I am in the middle of my novel and struggling to finish it. This is the first draft. I have been writing it in pieces although I do have a plot line. I think I am too critical to get through it. I…Continue
Hi Lorraine, I love your article and I think it is so true. The problem is we need to know that we are each on our own journey so comparing our journey to someone else's is ridiculous. Also, publishing is unpredictable like most marketing. I liked that movie too. My daughter found it and we watched it together which was also interesting. We are all afraid of failure no matter what age we are but we have to move forward and keep trying. Thanks for writing the article. Crystal

Anybody with suggestions for writing in genres other than the one you are published in? I have a novel I love but it is darker and deeper than my usual work. My agent doesn't seem interested. Any way to get it published?
Just need to talk to novelists who would like to be in more than one genre and can't break out of what they're doing now. I have one novel I love but it's deep and serious and not my usual thing. Haven't been able to sell it.
Okay, I will jump in with the first Prompt. If you would like to participate, post a short story from the prompt here, we have till next Wednesday. At that time if someone else in the group wants to post the next prompt that is fine or if you would rather I do it as opposed to taking turns, I'm okay with that too.
Weekly Prompt #1
Take a current character, one from past, or create a new one, place them in a era such as the 40's 50's etc of your preference, write a short story or paragraph of that chacacter in a scene from that Era. Envision them time traveling if you like, would they be any different then from now? Good luck and have fun...
Scotland huh, well that is something we have in common. My father is full blooded scottish. In fact if I had been a boy he was going to name me Angus! This would not have been good, since I'm a Texas born and raised girl. Lol.
lol No one ever seems to spell it correctly the first few times unless of course they are from Scotland. lol
Sorry for not spelling your name right. Mairi, we could do a weekly prompt?
Oh and not sure that I would do a daily prompt thing.
Can I just clarify something please my name has 2 i's in it :) Màiri one before and one after the r. lmao
