no...not thinking about my life. I have enough angst. I don't need to add to it, lol. I've been checking out my old posts--the stuff I archived. This is my third blog and the one I've kept the longest. Guess I was looking for myself. One day I'm going to bring up some of my earliest posts and see who was in here with me.
I've never really had a popular blog, since I'm so random and don't advertise unless I have a guest blogger. More like...a specialty blog, if there is such a thing for the craft of writing. I appreciate questions, since my best work comes out of trouble-shooting, although for some reason there are periods of mania where I'd get hung up on things like plot threads and various character arcs. Emotional structure has always been one of my favorite topics, and one I'm trying to incorporate into writing short stories.
To be fair, lots of stuff overlaps. I remember over on savvy, someone asked me how to show the transformational arc. For some reason the question slipped my mind. I'll have to look them up and send a copy. I hate leaving unanswered questions.
On the plus side, I like to think I've gotten better at explaining. On the minus side, sometimes I get a little obscure. I blame it all on rhetoric. After four months, I'm only to chapter five in Gennett's Narrative Discourse. Bad enough it's about Proust. I have to read it with a dictionary.
I'll probably be posting a lot of stuff on prologues over the next couple months as I gear up for October, but I've always been a prologue person. I need to work on getting it across, though.
