I sit in my apartment, the windows rattling to the worse storm since 1930. Periodically the range vent above the oven drips into a wellplaced–although be it a night to late–bucket. My attention to none of this does draws as I feel calmness through.
It has been a big year. I started to seriously get into writing taking the ideas from my scratch books to actual stories. I started this blog and you wonderful people quickly took to my work. I learned about poetry and story structure. I finished 14 books on writing from “Avoiding Bad Beginnings” to “Self-Editing and Review.” I took to trying out new post types like POP ANAL and Personal Posts.
For those of you that may be new here, every other Friday I like to make a personal post about my last two weeks and some of my thoughts. Now typically this post is made in the morning but it is late today because….
Alright número uno: I saw the strangely named Mr. Doctor yesterday–er sorry–Dr. Strange. If you have read any of my previous posts you will know that I am a massive Marvel fan. So in my completely bias opinion this was an amazing movie. It took a step back from the more serious tone of Age of Ultron and Civil War for a more laxed tone like Ant-Man. The issues this movie had–as do most MCU films–are pacing and a cardboard villain. Don’t let that take away though, it is more original then the previous films and trippy visuals. Definitely recommend.
Well it’s been two weeks since I’ve done one of these posts. In complete honesty I forgot to post it. Like Overwatch released the Halloween update the Tuesday before and I didn’t have class Friday. So Friday morning I woke up and played all day.
In other news I have read two more of the books I have bought. There are two real parts of writing fiction. First is the technical structure of writing:: the grammar, the spelling, spaces, etc. Second are the story telling aspects: the plot structure, the story elements, the inciting incidents. A fiction writers job is to present the story in a creative but obvious way while following the rules of the language. More difficult then it sounds.
Welcome everyone to my third Personal Post. Let’s get to it.
So first let me get the bitching out of the way. I have had so much homework, like just an absurd amount of homework. Four Chem E classes and a total of five assignments (yeah one class assigned two) each takes 8+ hours a week along with the 15 hours of class I already have. It just sucks cause I haven’t had time to really do any writing besides…
