I’m back…

Featured

I think, it must be 7 years, since I started my blog. I went away for awhile, then a day would pass, a week and a month and years… In 2019, I went on to my WordPress and inserted the title, ”I’m back.” That is all I did, no story or picture, just a title. Then I hit save and figured, I would type something, the next evening.

Well, here I am on WordPress at midnight, on April 4, 2022. Some would say, I am “fashionably late.” 😊 I say, “Let the games begin!” Lol. I have always, wanted to say that… and I did! I just remembered something, it is not good for me, to type late at night. Let’s see how this goes… Okay, once upon a time…

No, seriously, there are people on this site, that I have thought of through the years. Their stories and wonderful work of arts, that have made me smile, laugh and at times, shed a tear. I wonder about the young man who was publishing his science fiction book and the guy that worked at half-price books. The guy in Maine, who would run in the snow and liked to drink Snapple.

The cartoonist in France, drawing comics. The lady who writes the mystery books and the other lady, creating cool art and writing science fiction stories. The lady with the golden retrievers and the lady, who got married and had to move to Italy, trying to get use to no ice and wearing scarfs on your neck. The young lady writer, who is blind and sharing her experiences.

People talking about their personal experiences with family issues, work issues, dating, long distance romance and talking about their mental health issues. There have been many, wonderful photographers and travelers, with entertaining stories to tell. I remember a woman named Bobbie and some famous women who worked years ago, in New York, for top publishing firms.

I love to read articles, from the video gamers and foodies. I even, read the stories, from the writers who talk about religions and politics. Well, I think, I remembered everyone. I wonder, who will be able to tell, that I was talking about them. If you know, that I mentioned you, come on by and say, ”hello.” Well, until we meet again… 😊 Goodnight Zzzzzz

This is one of my digital art works, I will be sharing more soon.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The good: I am writing a novel. The bad: If I share any content, it would most likely not get published.  The ugly: I have previously shared my writings from two novels, that I am working on. As for my new project, I can not get advice from anyone online, because I should not share my work.

For the past month, I have been working on a novel, possible screenplay, but choose not to post what I have written on my blog.  What I have learned from WordPress is if you want your work to be published, you should not share any of your work online.  In previous months, I shared paragraphs of two novels, that I am working on.  I was very excited, as I was writing, now my hopes of publishing, those two novels, have since deceased.

So, after reading opinions on WordPress, as well as researching publishers, I came to the conclusion, that I would not post my current project online. What I am working on now, is 75% fiction and 25% fact, that could slightly be another reason, that I am hesitant to post my work online.  In the end, I have realized that what I am working on is very important to me, as well as a lot of people in regards to the subject of my writing.

So, my question to you is if you are working on something which you want to publish, would you share any content of your writing online, which would include subject matter?

Or would you just keep it to yourself, until it is published?
