About Michael

Biography

Stories Space is a place to relax, share and perhaps find the next famous writer... there are many great writers here, some published, and some waiting to be published.
It is a place to hone the art of writing, to go beyond something created, to become something cherished... and perhaps become something others remember.

I hope to create some of the latter.

Life is such an adventure!

Topic: The 'Ending' as a Topic
Posted: 20 Jul 2013 05:47

I would love to hear other writers' thoughts on the 'Ending'.

Is your story ending decided before you put 'pen to paper', or does the story reveal the ending to you only as it unfolds on paper (or screen)... and more to the point, which endings do you prefer to write and or read and how do they effect you?

Although there are many reasons I wonder about this aspect of story telling, I am compelled to admit that although I love a happy ending, it often eludes me and I find myself compelled to use a sad ending. I feel it adds 'impact' and 'remembrance', yet often feel that I may subconsciously use it to finalize the relationship created between writer and character. Beyond the aspect of 'happy' and 'sad' endings, I admit being most drawn to others' use of a bittersweet ending that creates an emotional roller-coaster of emotions.

How important is the ending to you as you write and how does it come into play with your own writer/character relationship?

Topic: Welcome to the Critique Forum
Posted: 25 Apr 2013 17:06

I really do like the Critique Forum, but I do have a question.

I noted the button "Edit" is added to all posts. Thus it appears that anyone may edit anyone's else's post.
I don't believe this is to be used while critiquing another persons words, yet how is it to be used?
Should we just quote the original post and critique with the new box?

I would also ask if the writer of the original piece submitted should go back and update their original words, thus allowing all to only comment on the 'improved' words.

If this has all been explained elsewhere, just point me in the right direction.

Topic: Whose "Wife"? Who is She?
Posted: 16 Apr 2013 18:14

Although it does appear to be a current fad, I don't see it as disturbing in its use. The stories should not about just 'being a wife', and hopefully are about the unique experiences being married to 'that' person has brought her... experiences that otherwise might have never been.

I view a title that uses "The *** Wife" as a story about how a woman's life was shaped by being married to a ***; just as I would view a similar title of "The *** Husband".
The story "The President's Wife" could be just as well written, enjoyable and perhaps educational as "The President's Husband".

Topic: Ask and Answer
Posted: 15 Apr 2013 18:01

Sheldon Cooper remains my favorite character on BBT due to his rich characterization. Despite being a uniquely annoying nerd, he retains his innocence of human interaction. Thus, the hurtful things he says are generally forgiven. He seems almost a stereotype for Asperger's.



Do you feel that writing good poetry is as difficult as a good story? ... and of course, why?

Recommended Read Empty Kitchen

“Shoot!” The exclamation punctuated the sound of pottery shattering. My neighbor, Karen had dropped a cup. It lay in shards across the hard kitchen tile. “Don’t worry, it’s just a cup. I have others,” I say, fetching the broom and dustpan. “I am sorry, sometimes I’m just so clumsy.” “Ah... it was just an old coffee cup, nothing to worry about.” My knees creak as I stoop to...

A Gilded Cage

‘We approach each other, I gaze in your face, I find your lips tender, as we kiss in a daze. Again and again we kiss, with each more yearning then before, Then, I awaken, I am alone, yet not so alone as before.’ “There is Cayo Lobos, just up ahead.” Brian’s voice squawked in my headset. I closed my tablet where I had been writing and looked ahead. I could see the...

Amor de Alma

“Whoaaa…” I answer as the first gust hits and she heels over, her rail dipping into the sea. Her bow pulls windward and I pull the wheel back while easing the mainsheet. A few minutes earlier the fog had moved in, leaving me suddenly surrounded in mist. I could see the bow, but beyond that was a mystery. Worse than a mystery, there was a bridge ahead; a railway bridge, and beyond that...

Audio Story Before I Die

I would sail across the Pacific, Visit the islands so remote. I would see the Northern Lights, Upon my own sailboat. - I would ride the city subway, An empty car, late at night. Spend Carnival in Rio, Dressed as a winged knight. - Ride a gondola in Venice, Sharing a bottle of wine. Write a novel about passion, The words and thoughts all mine. - Dance the tango...

For Words Alone

Can I love someone, Never seeing their face, Without their touch, Or their warm embrace? Can I love someone, Never seeing their eyes, Without their caress, Would it be wise? Can I love someone, Never seeing their smile, Without their kiss, Only their writing style? Can I love someone, Never hearing their cries, Without their body, Would it be a disguise? If they are not beautiful, If...
