Like Joshua, I was kind of scrating the old noggin' with your use of "suddenly", but, by the time I finished the second stanza I was with you. I was reeled in by the second stanza. I really enjoyed it. Very thought…"
"YOUR WRITING IS SIMPLY SPLENDID. IT WAS REALLY MOTIVATING AND THOUGHT-PROVOKING. WE LIKED IT. HENCE I INVITE U 2 SUBMIT YOUR PRECARIOUS WRITING AT OUR JOURNAL. "THE MIRROR OF TIMES" WHEREIN MANY PROMINENT WRITERS LIKE SMT. NABANITA DEV…"
Thank you for your reply and critique.
I think the comment of the "ly" on sudden has merit as it does disturb the meaning and meter... I will give you that. Maybe, if I decide to keep it as is, I might switch "strands…"
"Hi Writer at the Sea.
Thank you. I don't who said it, but it bears repeating, "I hate writing, I love having written." It's a phrase that I have to constantly remind myself to remember. If I intend to "love having…"
There is no doubt that character development is nearly as important as plot development. Without a good plot, a reader or audience will never stay engaged, but what about our lead characters? One of the ways that I help to define a character, is to write a biography about him/her. It really does help to isolate response in any given situation. If you understand the history of your character, then it becomes easy to create believable responses within the storyline. In addition, while a storyline…See More
As much as I hate to agree (because often re-writing can be an arduous task), you are correct. Your two rules are excellent. Every writer has their process of weeding out unnecessary dialogue, scenes, and verbiage that does not push…"
"hmm, WATS (Writer At the Sea) this is a mixed metaphor play that has a great switch up after the first stanza, but I see some conflicting images that only make sense if you were writing for the mere pleasure of just getting it down.
If this is the…"
"Thanks for bringing this topic up. The craft of writing isn't putting words on a page. It's in the re-writing. I've written fifteen screenplays, one television script and three television movie treatments that were sold and made into…"

Greetings! I am a freelance writer who works as a copywriter/editor, but writes screenplays, and in truth, no matter what genre, I DO LOVE TO TELL THE STORY! For the last many years, I have written typical advertising-driven copy while living in the beautiful oasis Carmel-by-the-Sea. Currently I am living in quaint New England and working on a ghostwriting project for the wife of one of 20th Century Fox's Executive Producers. For my own personal therapy, I do love to write poetry, read good literature, and travel whenever I get a chance.

"You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me." (CS Lewis)
I had the amazing pleasure of living in Carmel-by-the-Sea for the last seven years. It truly was a writer's paradise, and now I am embarking on a new kind of splendor in quaint, historical New England...
I'm glad you have your feet planted back in New England. Unfortunately, I haven't typed a key in over three weeks. I got let go from my jobs due to streamlining and have been having a tough time finding work. It's stressful but I won't bore you with the details. But know this, I don't give up. I've been sending out resumes every day.
Thanks for the heads up on this site. Am currently trying to use some connections I have in local government to get brought on as a freelance writer for some politicians(Blogs, websites) as well as volunteer for holding signs and other campaigning. Elevator union sign ups are coming up and I'm told having a letter from a member of local government is a good way to get picked.
You know me by know, I can't resist commenting and being involved but until the tidal wave of misfortune passes, I won't be in a frame of mind to write and be creative.
I'll observe this site and check back in to get familiar with it. People here seem much more open from what I've seen(Looked a little yesterday). Better than H-Wood East.
I'll talk to you soon and always goos to hear from you.
So glad to hear from you, but sorry to hear about your job. Truth be known... I am still looking for work. I cannot believe this frankly. I think you would be great at blogging and commenting on political issues. I hope that works out for you... Keep me posted! Rootin' for you Howie!
Yeah, this site is pretty cool. Not even sure how I discovered it, but when I saw that there was no film group, I changed that immediately! :)
Anyway my friend... time to "cut to" another scene. My doggy needs a serious WALK, while the rain has stopped briefly.
