Titles ????

Standard

It’s so hard to come up with a good title when I’m starting a story! I always want one that’s inspiring and summarizes what it will be about. But sometimes I’m not sure what my story is about! So I wanted to ask a few questions.
How have you, fellow writers, come up with your title(s)? How many times have you changed it/them? What do you look for in a title (whether it’s your work or someone elses)? Any thoughts?

Mediocre???

Standard

It is Memorial Day weekend and I am doing something untraditional. Cleaning my room. Yep yep. And, well, as most any time while picking up and through my sleeping quarters, I stumbled across some writings.

Thus I read instead of clean.

And the question is…why do I write? My work sucks! It is so full of flaws, you should have seen my face, wrinkled with disdain, snarling at those pages. I soooooo needed a red pen. The work would have been bloody with ink!

Honestly, I know why I write. I simply love it and can’t stop. But what do you do when all you can see is the mediocrity of your work?

My own self-criticism is killing my inspiration like Round-Up…Help?

Forbidden Obsession

Standard

Hey guys, this is just a post in which i would like to shamelessly flaunt and pimp a story i’ve had the pleasure of discovering on fictionpress.net!  i was so impressed and so totally enamored with it that i had to make story art for it as well- lmao, i know i’m lame! – however i really loved it so there is my justification! With that said, here follows the art and aforementioned review…

FORBIDDEN OBSESSION
by sllyrabbit360

This passionate story about a teacher and student’s obsessive relationship is one of the best I’ve read on fictionpress, and honestly it should be a published book. When Danni, recently graduated from college, is given the opportunity to teach at a prestigious middle school she has no idea what the future holds…or who is waiting for her there. Logan Pearson, captain of the swim team and prince of West Forest high, doesn’t take no for an answer – and that includes his teachers too.

In this story sllyrabbit360 takes the somewhat cliched student/teacher relationship and gives it a new twist and a life all it’s own. Introducing characters and situations true to life; faceted and filled with shadow and light. Exlporing the temptations the heart must face and the consequences of resisting as well as sucumbing. Forbidden Obsession is a real treat, filled with consuming detail and real and fresh dialogue, making it easy to get wrapped up in the lives of the protagonists – who are not forced or stilted, but flowing and alive. Overlooking some minor grammatical and spelling hiccups, I found Forbidden Obsession to be refreshingly original and the author to have a spellbinding voice. (Of which I’m glad to report we will be hearing more of, with particular interest in FO’s sequel entitled Eternal Desires. Big Grin!) This girl has oodles of talent.

Subtly layered, and working on a plot that you only realize how grand it is till at the end – I highly recommend this story for anyone who wants to read a smart, witty, sarcastic, and passionate story that deals with moral and social issues of our world today, and how lust and love really work. Five stars!

Edit 8/15/09 : I just looked at the pic and found a problem – depth perception is off because of how much light there is…she is supposed to be in the water, in the surf actually. I probably will work on this to fix it…unless ya’ll think I shouldn’t?

The World…

Standard

Sucks.

I’m feeling very disappointed – in myself, in my dreams, in those I love, in life as it generally is perceived. I’m disappointed and rather desolate. The big D’s…Hope seems humorous, and I’m tired of smiling. Faking it has not helped me make it, and all it has done is lend me a big hand of nothing – Nada.

Sorry for the depressing update, but hell, this is me…
