To all: Whit's Ubiquitous Massive Missive catch up :)......
Hi all! I had one of those spurts (thank God the well's not completely dry) - the kind where day and night don't matter, time doesn't matter, and you can't recall whether you've eaten or what day it is :) Imagine my surprise when I logged on to see what's up with ya'll and realized that I'm 12 posts behind and we've had the Invasion of the Writing Michelles!
Bren: Belated welcome! You've received great comments from all. As you've probably noticed, this board is more of a support giver than an advice giver, although advice is certainly available :) Glad you've joined us!
Tammy: Welcome as well! And scraps of napkins and receipts *do* count. I once wrote an idea from a dream down on my windowsill! Please do jump in whenever you are able. May I ask if you have a background in Psych? My gut says you do but it's been known to be wrong :) Also, permission to use the names Cassidy and McKenna in some future novel - what great names!!!
Kathleen: I'm so discombobulated I can't remember if I gave you a hearty welcome before, so if I shirked my usual considerate nature, forgive me and welcome! What's it like writing for kids? Is the age group you're writing for considered to be YA or is that an older group?
Amy: Glad to see you posting more often, but rest assured that when you are absent we know you are with us in spirit and in lurkingness!
PMF2: The proper rhetorical name of this phenomenon is - English LOL!
Adrian: Been thinking about you. How you doing?
Kenyadee: Does your muse live solely in your dreamworld?? If not, is it a different muse that lives outside of your dreams and do they have different suggestions? Fascinating, regardless...
MediaMom Patty: After I read the criticism a time or two, I agree with you - it *is* a smiley criticism. Thanks! Oh and BTW, great quotes!!
Sara: So very, very sorry for your loss. But I guarantee you that she was and will continue to be proud of you.
Valerie: Was very interested with what you had to say about waiting for inspiration vs. just writing on. Couldja, wouldja say more about that in a new post. I've been having that argument with myself lately. Of course, if you insist on waiting for inspiration, that late night full meal idea of yours would certainly do the trick!
Julie: You and Val always get me contemplating things! Couldja, wouldja say more about the creative fiction vs "real" fiction (your quotes). What do you think falls in the creative fiction category?? PS, how's the house coming?
To the Michelles - :)
Sunny Michelle: Welcome!What a great DH you have! And always feel comfortable bombarding this board with questions. The combined answering power is awesome - what a witty, smart bunch here!
Kelicto Michelle: WOW! The UK publishing news is just wonderful!! Congrats! Keep us informed, OK?
Tank Michelle: You are the most obsessed, most prolific person I have ever met. The cool thing is that they are all incredible ideas! And now they're coming from your dreams! Like you needed another idea source LOL! Oh yes, and do we catch up with Daisy Lou before or after 12/7/41??
Marie: I suppose his Mom didn't teach not to run with sharp objects! LOL! Sorry I missed PPwBK week ....well, on second thought maybe I'm not so sorry. And I agree with your assertion that there is a moral obligation to be historically accurate. If not then it should be allowed in the Historical Fiction subgenre.
JudyB: First of all, are you absolutely certain those fifth grade limericks were clean? Did they squeak?? Also, please, please start a post about your belief or should I say disbelief in writer's block - I'm strokiing my chin and saying "berry interesting". I tried to get into chat last night and couldn't - again. Could we email about that?? I have a few strands of hair left and I'd like to keep them!!
