When I started this blog it was meant to be a photography blog but I also wanted to write about my experiences and the things that inspired me to take the pictures. Or so I thought. I knew too, that I wanted to share the stories that made my life; stories of my childhood, adulthood, my children and friends.
I’ve done a lot of that but through my weekly participation in Friday Fictioneers I’ve renewed my desire to write fiction as well. A lot of my fellow fictioneers (close to 100 each week) write wonderful stories of murder and mayhem. There are plenty of zombies, vampires, and mermaids to keep things intriguing.
Comparatively I am rather simple. I enjoy writing about everyday life and every day people and at times I feel my stories tend to be a little dull. Hearts may break but rarely does anyone die.
I post all my creative writing on Wednesdays. For Velvet Verbosity I tend to write poetry, a lot of it somber, although this week I attempted a bit of humor. I’m not sure anybody got that. What I like too about Velvet Verbosity is that I use my own pictures. I feel like I can really showcase some of my photography by matching it up to a poem or story.
My Fictioneer contribution this week was probably closer to non-fiction that to fiction. Everyone always says “write about what you know”. I know more about bad relationships than zombies or mermaids.
I wrote one of my favorite stories this week for the Word Press Weekly Writing Challenge, another prompt I participate in. This was purely fiction inspired by recent events. Do me a favor, check it out and tell me what you think. It’s Been 6 Days
I’m not sure where my writing will go or this blog for that matter. I think, like me, it’s all a work in progress.
Have a great weekend everybody!
