I have been reading some poetry on the web lately. It’s beautiful.
I haven’t done Fiction Friday in a month or so. I’ve been too tired in my soul to come up with Fiction. And I’ve been rather hard on myself lately. I have always wanted to write a book. But I never can find the proper topic. Or come up with a reasonable plot that will interest anyone else. I had thought of writing on a woman with depression, but then a friend of mine started writing her memoir and goodness, now I feel like I am plagiarizing.
So, I go back to the blank page on the screen.
Soleil came home a few weeks ago with a story map. I loved it. She wrote down who were the main characters, what the "problem" was, the solution, the supporting characters, the setting. It was very nice. (yes, she’s in kindergarten. Want proof Kindergarten is the new first grade? She brought home a Venn diagram yesterday! A Fricken VENN diagram!in Kindergarten!) I really should consider looking into the community college in our town and learn more about how to write. I always figured people just sat down and wrote, but I know that isn’t true. The ideas come from the soul, but just like astronomy, where the love of the science comes from the soul, you need to learn the tools to do it.
So maybe, when Luna’s in school, maybe then I will take a class at the community college. Maybe….
Beacuse I do want to write. And more than just my personal ramblings
