What an adventure I had

Took the cameras to the Itchetucknee river, a bunch of props and we made movie clips all day. We had quite a few story ideas to go along with us and of course I can see getting them into story form too. It helps to have some visuals for me when I'm thinking up stuff. That or music. In this case I'll have both. Photos, music movies laughter. When you get in a slump writing or finishing a story, try it. It's amazing what happens.
Now, enjoy this Saturday morning. It's the only Today you get. Make the most of it and make someone smile along the way :)

Happy Wednesday world

I'm still writing, still driving people crazy with my words. That's my job, who else is gonna make people laugh with all the political crap going on.
Have any of you considered ebooks? I know I've mentioned it already but seriously. On the writers website, which will remain..well anyway, so many are bound and determined to wait for an agent. In the meantime, they send their words off to ezines etc for free. Wait a min. I can post a story for free an ebook. Why not get your name out there in the world, the chances of an agent reading you are even better that way. It's a huge slush pile now matter where you submit. Me? I'm gonna keep slugging along..collect my monthly royalty checks ( which gets me a pizza and a beer) LOL.
Think about what you really want..go after it, before time passes you by.
Now, get out there and have fun. Write if you feel like it, go play if that's what makes your heart smile.
Life my friends is gonna be exactly what you want it to be.
Got it?

Tuesday, wow.It rocks!

So, I'm heading over to the Springs one day this week, movie camera in hand. Got a great idea about a story, so..I'm going to make a youtube video about it. Lots of mini clips so I can piece them together. After the video is made I'll use it to fleah out my story. So my synopsis will be in video form. I think it just might work! What kind of story? Well, sci fi, spooky ghost story perhaps. Depends on what footage I get. If I can find a diver there, might just talk him into getting me some clips from the blue hole..add some spooky artifacts!
When you have an idea for a story, use whatever it takes to make the story alive inside you. It'll come down on paper so much better. Well, so much for trying to explain..I do believe I'm a lost cause. Have a fantastic day world!

Should be a busy week. I have to get the ebooks ready for B&N, make covers etc. I'll have to learn how to do that. Should be interesting. I'm trying not to get into another story before I finish this task..but already my mind is racing. I hope you have a grand day and week ahead, more later about stories.. :)

writing ideas

People always wonder, where do I come up with this stuff. Here's a fun story how it works, sometimes. The other day on Facebook a friend posted about Nutmeg, how if taken in the die. Now who thought up trying that? So we began posting silly know, hey thanks, now I can have fun killing off who ever, hey we could write a story! So one by one everyone started posting ideas they liked. I said, lets do it at camp! I go to rendezvous and a perfect setting. So before the day was over I wrote it..posted it on facebook...oh it was such fun. See, an idea can come from anywhere. Even a silly post on FB. So next time you are anywhere, listen to what folks are saying...An idea may just pop into your head. What if? What happens then? Solve the conflict..That is how a short story or book is born. If, Then Else.. Have fun, play!

Hey, It's cartoon day!

I sure do miss the old ones, today's cartoons..well they don't make me giggle. Now, I'm working on another short story in the 76th st. pedal patrol series. They'll all be part of an ebook soon. These are really grown up stories told by me, the Mom ..But the kids are the heroes. Imagine if the Mom from Goonies was telling the story. Oh, its funny!
Well, I guess I should get some coffee and get to work. May you have a pleasant day and enjoy..cause today is the first day of the rest of your life!
