Writing Block by Darnell Cureton - 6d ago

Over the weekend – Received positive comments on latest fiction. A reader provided a perspective I hadn’t considered that would have made the story better. This helped me see the usefulness of having a beta reader for my work in progress. Honest Feedback Is Invaluable

lightning flashed across the sky as heavy rainfall made the ride into town slow. Maverick, a blond muscular man wearing a wide-brimmed hat became drenched from head to toe as he rode handcuffed on the back of a pulled horse. He kept his head down as the locals gathered in the muddy street to see who Marshal Pete was bringing…

July 9th, 8:00pm. Just completed my next fiction that will post on Friday. Now that it’s done, it seems the story took no effort to write… easy peasy. Then I remembered that blank page before I started. Adding words to a blank page can be scary and overwhelming. Then I think about my goal – to create fiction. The fear…

July 2nd – dusk. I’m exhausted arriving home from work. My mind is mush so writing will have to wait until I get some rest. As the sun sets on a beautiful day, I wonder why I made the decision to write fiction now. If I started ten years ago, I might have become an accomplished author. Before sleep takes…

June 25th, 5:00pm – On my commute home from work I thought about ways to improve my writing skills. Writing editors help some, so does reading a variety of authors to get a sense of style. Maybe attend a weekly meet up with other writers for encouragement. I haven’t done that in a while. June 25th, 6:30pm – I smile…

I was told in comments that my last story had good descriptions. They were okay, but my goal is to make a story come alive in the reader’s mind. I want them to imagine they are on the page with my characters. That can only be accomplished if I keep writing, and learning.

I wanted to relax my mind a bit after writing my last story. The audiobook “Last Seen Wearing” by David Hewson filled the bill. The story isn’t read, it’s performed with a full cast. Sometimes a narrator takes us out of the story when they read a line like a woman or a man and fail. No problem here, as…

June 11th, 10:00am – A fellow blogger/writer/author mentioned that a reader said her characters were flawed. I say use anything positive from complainers and trolls and throw the rest away.  Continue to cook your fiction the way it tastes good to you.   You Are A Writing Chef. The Way You Prepare Your Work, Not Everyone Will Like It- No…

With the assistance of a TelePorter, a criminal found me…causing things buried within my soul to come to the surface. *** Darius – I blow off viewing the 3-foot holographic stream of a homicide projected on the ready room desk. The Jo I poured from my thermos…
