There are a number of blogs that have been influential for me, but, as of May 2014, the top two are http://inkpenauthoress.blogspot.com and http://scribblingskeyboard.blogspot.com/. It will be neat to see whether I still follow those two writers in 2015 and who else has been influential.
I have Dungeon completed in a draft form, and it needs to be rewritten. The same goes for Ariana's Island. The new project I am working on is still untitled and has been going under the name of "BB" (which isn't really a name at all but is a way I can reference it until it gets a name). At the moment, all of my other big writing projects have taken a backseat.
My biggest flaw to work out of my writing at the moment is to keep from repeating myself too much. There has to be a way to be clearly understood without hammering my readers with the same facts said 5 different ways. Also, I am not sure how to include descriptions of my setting without boring my readers. Anne-girl had some tips but I haven't made them work for me yet.
I don't know how you would classify my writing. I haven't settled on a genre or an age-group or a particular style. I don't know which famous author my writing most closely resembles. I simply write what comes to me to write. I know that publishers like to put people in boxes so, at some point, I will probably have to find a box that works for me. Maybe by the time you are reading this I will have categorized myself. But, for now, I am entirely free, and readers are welcome to make their own judgments regarding my style.
Already I am learning a great deal about writing. I am getting braver to try things. I feel like I have a better handle on the "work" of writing than I have before. With such changes already occurring, I am optimistic as to my continued progress. Who knows how much I will improve by 2015?
Thank you for reading my time-traveler letter. Have a great day!
