It's Bernita time again.
I promised her to enter, and so did I for my own self.
So, here I am, wondering whether I will have the precious time to work out those original ideas.

Bernita and I have at least one thing in common: ursophobia, or fear of bears.
Is it because I would be unable to handle the situation?
One day I might expose a hero of mine to it. When *I* am ready to overcome the fear.
I think many authors keep giving abilities to their heroes way far beyond their own.
What dou you think?
It is more realistic to write out of your own experience OR one can leave his/her own restrictions behind?
If someone posess an abnormal fear of bears for example, can one make a fighting scene between the character and the bear believable?

I've taken up the idea of finishing another short story before completing this one here. That one is a 250 word piece I wrote some months ago, which at that length, was way too complicated and difficult to understand.
I understood it ah too well, because I had it in my head, but appearantly none of the readers did.
I'm planning to ue this as an exercise to do some planning and USE my plans as well.
Question number 1.
Do you often totally re-write your stories? OR: Do you oftern turn a short story into a long one?
Does it often happen to you? Why?
How does it affect you? And your relation to the story?
Question number 2.
If you understand the flow of events and motives for actions in the story, do you still re-write it? What would be the force to make you re-write a story completely?

I've been polishing the first Chapter.
Sometimes what I write comes out so nicely that I'd like to lean back and pat my shoulders.
These days, despite of the company of the almost-full Moon, I'm not in that mode.
Would someone switch me, please?
My kids won't be here between 29 October and 4 November.
I'll try to make use of this time.

I had some trouble with the character and flow of fate of the protagonist.

you know I keep checking back this blog of mine (for I have two) and I am surprised to find that the number of comments do not increase after a time. It makes me wonder.
Then I realize I have not written a new entry, that is the reason for not receiving new comments.
Silence in my part is answered by silence from the readers. Quite reasonable, isn't it?
Oh, how dull I can be sometimes....
Well, about the improvements!
I have started outlining.

I was thinking about writing my story during its course.
For clear reasons I can not join the NaNo, and I have doubts about being able to write that much about that idea I have.

well yes, I'm on the wrong side of the mirror again.
My question to anyone out there.
How does your mood affects the fate of your characters?
Suppose you're in the middle of writing a story. Plus you are depressed.
Can you describe a happy and uplifting event or do you have to wait until depression wears off?
OR would you choose a fight scene/sad/grief scene to deal with on gloomy days instead?
Was it a good question, at all?

I found a meme on Jason's site.
No one tagged me, which I really don't mind.
This meme is about the 5 strong points of myself, as a writer.
This is where the main problem starts.
Am I a writer?

One day I'll have to pick up the pieces and match them. Put them in the right order. Match dates, and other features of time, space and characters.
Now I tend to write impulsively and see where it leads me.
Perhaps, I should be getting more goal oriented now.
I'm learning new things about my own self and I like the process.
If you have any stories to share, feel free to comment.
If there is any of you out there.

Perhaps I have come to terms with non-writing. With being an un-writer.
That tiny voice inside disagrees, though.
It's clearly disagreement. Resentment.

It appears that one who's watching my other blog has found his/her way here, into the Copper Moon project. That is sort of good. I like to do it alone, this constant monitoring of my (non)progress.
yeah, I'm watching my progress with some irony.
Not THAT MUCH to watch, though.

I wrote some pieces again today. Hurray.
I go by writing pieces that will be hold up for the complete story at the end.
