#WriterWednesday: All Blogged Up and One Place To Go

Photo credit: Foter.com

The good thing about my novella editing go off-track is that instead of getting all huffy, puffy and frustrated about it this time, I made a conscious choice to not get all huffy, puffy and frustrated.

Instead, I’ve been reminding myself that I’ve made strides doing other things:

  • After rolling around ideas for this November’s Nanowrimo, I’m settling on either following-up on the Living To Die” story or writin two short stories to serve as “introductions” to Delaney and Ella since you like those character (that’s code for “I need to make up my mind”);
  • I accomplished a few more items from my 52/52 list (offline) and will be jumping into #TribeTuesdayWPChallenge;
  • I’ve tackled some postponed and boring household tasks to clear a better path to creativity during November;
  • My featured posts are set up until end of December 2017;
  • I’m cross-promoting with Helen with her #SongLyricSunday at This Thing Called Life One Word At A Time and will likely have another cross-promotion with a talented writer very soon (Nortina from Lovely Curses); and
  • I’ve written 12 new short fiction pieces due to my #MarquessaChallenge!

So instead of looking at my editing delays as a “problem”, I’m shifting my view to see them as “OPPORTUNITIES”.

Being all blogged up leaves me with one place to go…

FORWARD!

#LyricalFictionFriday October Challenge #marquessachallenge #fictionfriday #music

Will you join in for the October 2017 Challenge?

Participation in last month’s #FictionFriday Challenge was amazing! I truly enjoy reading everyone’s fiction, some of which has some WICKED twists and surprises. Also, partnering with Helen from This Thing Called Life One Word At A Time and her Song Lyric Sunday was fabulous too!

Most of the September song lyric prompts dealt with denying love, lover’s revenge, love at first sight, romantic love, controlling your love and untamed love…of course, that’s from my interpretation. For the October song lyric prompts, I’ll be making them a little more upbeat and less lovey dovey.

Of course, if you don’t like the lyric prompt I can post, you can simply use part of it, another lyric from the song or simply whatever strikes you. You can write flash fiction, regular fiction, poem, it’s your choice! You can even use an old fiction piece or something you are currently working on.

If you take this month’s #FictionFriday Challenge, please pingback to the Friday post or drop a link to your post in its comment box. Also, TAG another fiction writer who may be interested in participating.

I’m looking forward to seeing the creative fiction you come up with!

Below is an advance look at the lyrics for the next Fridays in October that I will repost with its’ related video:

  • October 6: “I’ve been all around the world and as a matter of fact…there’s only one place left I wanna go…”
  • October 13: “Shut up and put your money where your mouth is…”
  • October 20: “When we’re together, we never fight…we’ve got better things to do tonight…”
  • October 27: “…You better have your hair weave strapped on tight…”

Enjoy and let’s write!

“Breaking the Unbreakable” – #marquessachallenge #fictionfriday #lyricalfictionfriday

This piece was written for yesterday’s #FictionFriday challenge.

Photo credit: Foter.com

My spirit was free and unbreakable until I met you.

But you succeeded in breaking what was unbreakable in me.

You killed them.

The inexperienced girl who would have done anything for you.

The experienced woman who got down on her knees for you.

Your promise of a love story for two was a lie

And you’ll never know about the horror story for three that almost saw the light of day.

Now it’s my chance to return to the day before we met and erase all other traces of you.
