Writing Post #3

It is that time again. I have been writing like mad. Editing revising creating. Over the last few days, I published a few pieces I am thrilled with, editing a few wondering what I was thinking when I wrote these pieces and revisions on pieces I thought had great bones.

Being a writer is hard work. It takes dedication and perseverance over and over and over. Creating anything from scratch out of your brain takes time. You need to get the details right. You need to create characters or a storyline people can follow. You need to invoke sympathy for characters and lead your story down a believable world.

Writing is an art and all writers will tell you it takes time. I have some really great editors I now work with and I am writing more than I ever have. Well for myself that is, when I was working on my B.A. I did pages and pages and umm pages of writing just never for me. It was all for academic papers.

So this week I have another writing prompt for you. Use the  photo and create some story, some character, or some world and share with me ( or not ) what you come up with. I would love to showcase writers work on my blog so if you are interested in working with me please let me know.

Now here is prompt #3.

Take it and run with it. And if you feel like sharing I am here.
Your storyteller/poet

Write on fellow writers!!! Write on!!

Sunday Interview Series

Photo by rawpixel on Unsplash Interview Sunday's will start this Sunday and run for at least 6 weeks if not more. This will be a place where we share our creative. We will share how we started, the hard work, the success or failures. We will encourage each other. Yes all my interviews are of women. I support women who are trying to make a name for themselves. They are struggling to be heard and this platform I hope will allow them to be seen by a wider base. These interviews are meant to be fun and lighthearted. So Im going to answer some of these questions about myself as a writer and get the ball rolling. The first real interview will be published Sunday.
My name is Debbie and I come from New Jersey, but have moved all over the world and call Georgia my home.
My creative gift is with a mixture of photography and words. I stir them together to form a cohesive story that I hope resonates with people's hearts. I hope I build characters that you root for or against.
I knew this…

Local Coffee Shop

So I apologize for this being a little late. I had to have surgery and got behind. This was my last coffee house of the summer. It is pretty local compared to the rest. It is about 30 min. south of me. It is brand new and called Bodega Brew. The owner is amazing and very interested in feedback. She spent sometime talking writing and author night with me. The ladies behind the counter know their stuff and can help you with it all.

Coffee and me go together like Apple pie and America. I used to hate it, but in recent years I have a taste for it. I like trying different coffee houses because they all a brand they prefer. I have to say Dancing Goat in Decatur Georgia has amazing coffee. Bodega is filled with local people. It also is filled with people interacting and no phones in site. They have outside seating or inside. They have bakery items if you care to have a nibble.

This coffee house has great light, great people, great coffee. They really want you to be happy and encourage you to …

Writing: What a Novice Idea

People claim to be writers if they write one short story and call it a day. Being a writer is not  for the faint of heart.Being a writer means putting your heart on the page and leaving it wide open for others to judge it. It means thousands of hours poured onto the page, it means long stretches at the computer or notebook, it means opening yourself up to ridicule, loathing, and by all means stalkers, haters, and other mentally challenged people. Being a writer means being ready to write then be attacked for it!

Writers are mothers, fathers, sisters, accountants, teachers (honestly they probably have some of the best stories around ), doctors, auto repair people, you name it and that person you think is shy, full of life, quiet, loud, and everything else, yep they are a writer. Writers are all sorts of people. They have full time, part time,  they work overnight, work 12 hour shifts. There is no p…
