Still surprised…

It’s been about 7 years but I’m still surprised that people actually read what I post here.

What surprises me even more is when someone takes the time to DM or email me with a suggestion that makes absolute sense.

A long time ago, I had said that I would no longer post fiction on this blog and took down most of my fiction, mainly because not every one likes fiction and because it didn’t really generate many comments (and I enjoy chatting).

But a lovely reader suggested that if I want folks to be interested in reading my fiction, I should post a few fiction pieces back on the blog as a sample to those who have never read any.

That suggestion made total sense to me and so I have decided that here and there, I will post some previously posted fiction.

For those of you who have already read some of them – sorry. 🙂

And for those of you who read them as “new”, I hope you enjoy.

        “In fiction, when you paint yourself into a corner, you can write a pair of suction cups onto the bottoms of your shoes and walk up the wall and out the skylight and see the sun breaking through the clouds. In nonfiction, you don’t have that luxury.”

  1. Hi Marquessa,
    something surprised me:
    “I would no longer post fiction on this blog and took down most of my fiction, mainly because not every one likes fiction and because it didn’t really generate many comments”

    I would tend to think that one writes (or painits or makes music) to express oneself, not because one waits for a reaction from others. What do you think? Can you expand on that? – Warmly, Juan María

    1. I don’t post fiction for likes but I do enjoy when people give me their reaction, have a question about character and/or want to discuss craft. That’s what I mean. But I am planning a fiction off-blog so i’ll see how that goes.🙂
