Topic: What music are you listening to?
Posted: 09 Dec 2011 12:53

Several days ago "Just Once in My Life," by the Righteous Brothers began to play in my mind. It was never a favorite of mine, but now I listen to it again and again on Youtube. I like the sound, and the lyrics are appealing to me also.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2vMp0kJHyo

There's a lot of things I want
A lot of things that I'd like to be
But girl I don't foresee
A rags to riches story for me
There's just one little dream
I've got to make come true
There's just one round I've got to win
I can't be a loser with you

Chorus:

And baby, baby
Just once in my life
Let me get what I want
Girl, don't let me down
Just once in my life
Let me hold on to
The good thing I've found
Don't let me down
Baby, say that you'll be stayin'...

'Cause I couldn't face the day
If you weren't here by my side
And if you went away
Then I'd be left without any pride
I've given up on schemes
'Cause every one fell through
I've given up so many things
Don't ask me to give up on you

(Repeat Chorus)

That old pot of gold
Ain't so easy to find
But if you'll stand by me
Girl, I'll keep peace of mind
I can't give you the world
But I will work hard for you, girl
Yes, I'll work hard (everyday)
All my life (you will see)
If you won't leave me (baby, don't leave)
Please don't leave me (oh no don't leave)
Just do this for me, baby

(Repeat chorus twice & fade out)

5 Creative Flaws That Will Expose Your Lack of Storytelling Experience...

There are a million ways to cripple a story. Here are five of them. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being inexperienced (we’ve all been there). Unless it shows up in your story in a way that detracts from it.

Anyway...here is the link...do you agree with all of them?
http://storyfix.com/5-creative-flaws-that-will-expose-your-lack-of-storytelling-experience

Somewhat to my surprise I have not been guilty of any of those flaws. My writing has been called sparse, but you know where you are in one of my stories, and you know what is happening.

I will write, "He put on his coat and walked to the drug store." Someone else might devote a page to describing that, but is a page really necessary? Anything in addition should be relevant to the story. Why does he walk, rather than drive his car? Does he have a car? If not, why not? (I don't, BTW.) Is his coat expensive, inexpensive, old, or new? What kind of a neighborhood does he walk through? If the answers to any of those questions are relevant the story, they probably should be included, otherwise they should not be.

Topic: Who is your favourite author at the moment?
Posted: 09 Dec 2011 12:17

My favorite is Edgar Allan Poe.

It looks like you've only posted two comments since last June. I hope you come back to post some more.

I hope your novel turns out OK. It is a good idea to write about what you know about.

I'll ask if I think of something.

A Hanukkah Gift, Part II

After a long time when the colonel said nothing Hans asked, “And what is the bad news?” The colonel smiled slightly with an expression of complex appreciation. “Private Rickmers, you are a credit to the German Army. You know how to smile at death.” The colonel continued, “All letters to German soldiers are read. Your girl friend should not have signed her name as ‘Ruth Cohen’.  “I...

A Hanukkah Gift, Part I

Patches of snow flecked the dirt road in rural France as a squad of German soldiers rode by on motorcycles. A land mine exploded, destroying the first motorcycle, and killing the rider. The other motorcycles crashed. Their riders tried to shoot at unseen enemies. French resistance fighters quickly mowed them down with submachine gun fire. The resistance fighters fled to avoid the approach...
