Now I have posted a story, I want you readers to know a little about my writing experience thus far.
I write journals. I think of short stories. I have only attempted to write one other story before this.
I either have a GREAT IDEA and my inspiration is present or I don't. I hear, see, think through a story in pieces. I string them together until the pieces become a tangible whole.
When I have stopped to edit or stopped to closely critique what I have written, I usually lose my original thoughts on the story. Now, I try to keep writing until I have said all I can think to say about a topic.
I do go back and try to correct punctuation, word choice, coherence and issues on that scale. The characters and the story lines have already taken a life of their own. I generally write what I see happening. I fill in the holes (i.e. What was the character wearing or where was she/he situated in a room?) at some later point.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the rating here at ficwad. I have even been judged 'dreadful' which is a new one on me. I like ficwad because it does rate instead of just leaving people to review. I have noticed some of the later reviewers were less kind than the original readers in rating what I wrote, but I have noticed in other spaces that reviews change overtime and I have more than sufficient space to improve.
I want to thank you for reading my ideas. Some concepts are not fleshed out in my mind yet and appear that way within the text. I give you, dear reader, as much as I have to give in each update. I also get a big laugh at how vicious people are considering the fact that they have only received the amount they paid.
