I started thinking about writing and how to go about writing a book or a novel, or even a short story that you would A) Read, B)comment on or C) make funny comments to your friends about on social media about how lame it was.. Ok maybe I’m being to hard on myself, I consider myself an articulate person, however I don’t always speak with the same clarity and precision as I write. I mean, I don’t use words in everyday conversation that you would see in something I put in this blog, or in a letter, and definitely not in a tweet.
So let’s think about this for a sec, how can I write a first person piece of fiction that will sound believable to a point and yet still be intriguing enough for you to turn the page, scroll or click through it?..
Do I write it like I speak?, do I follow the rules of writing? or do I just let my thoughts and ideas leak out in this format and try to tell a story that compels thought, reflection, faith ( or lack there of) adventure, and countless other adjectives that will decide the chapters of this story?
I have a vivid imagination and love american history, space exploration, military history, and science fiction.. I don’t know how to write an outline, a story block or develop a leashing agent to guide you to the next page..
But… I’m gonna give it a go,,, btw,, I’m at my twitter follower limit, so if you wouldn’t mind @slarson
btw the working title is “Area Kilo Charlie” and I’ll leave it at that
