Do I write more in Spring?

It’s spring! Does this season inspire you to write more than others, or not?

No, spring is when the pots are replanted with nurturing dirt sorting out the weeds, separating and replanting the stuffed plants into mulches for growth in the summer months and long into autumn.

Spring is digging in the dirt rechannels the electricity we need to be creative humans. Spring is a time to walk in the earth barefooted, look at the beauty of plants, love songs of birds, the dance of the squirrels, and the fragrances of invites, the buzzing of insects.

Spring is here for inspiration and renewal of souls and growth.

How do I keep on writing in my rain storm?

insecure writers support group

When it is pouring rain and melting my papers and blurring my penned words  --> I cry!  Look out of my eyes, wait and wait, sleep, or walk, work in my garden, pet my cats. Really - CRY! SOB! SCREAM!  These help!

Or, I might organize the papers and the stuff around my computer and on the desk, or find where I am on other project, chose one, and start there. Then after a while when the rain stops, start the writing.

Thunder storms from my family, either wanting something or to check on me when I'm consumed by my project is turmoil. The noise, or the distress from my head spreads and causes wonder, even friends text. I ignor everyone and continue to cry --> I can talk to them later.

How do I celebrate when I achieve a writing goal?

Celebrating a Completed Goal

I yell, shout, dance, cry and post in all the places I can post. A written stream into the vast reaches of the web yelling out my success to shake the noise of this and that buzzing around. What is a story anyway but a long string of words reaching out to meet someone. The problem is the words get tangle in the light and music of all the rest and my celebration last only seconds.

Interview, Part 10 - FIRE, the Hunger

Will we be able to hear or read FIRE, the Hunger?


Yes, I like to say, ‘coming to stores near you’. I do plan to e-publish Fire, the Hunger as part of a series, Telling Timeless Tales. to Smashwords into their many formats, as a paperback Print-on-Demand on CreativeSpace, and as a Kindle on Amazon.

The writing challenges at NaNoWriCAMP and Clarion Foundation Write-a-Thon helped me write these verbals stories into written stories for reading and for someone else to use and tell. You can read ‘FIRE, the Hunger’ at Wattpad and Bublish.com. I do post blurbs about the stories on the StoryRealm and interview here at BlobBlobandBlogging. So summaries of stories and a PDF will be available at my website, Bobbiekinkead.com. Also, I plan to tell the stories on my youtube BobbieTales Channel and Soundcloud, this is farther along on my path.

Interview, Part 9 - FIRE, the Hunger

The best question, how does the storyteller work up their stories.

First to find stories liked, then print them out, and read over and over to see if plots are suitable. Then I make what I called a ‘Summary Page’: how long the story is, my first sentence, my last sentence, a summary of the plot, and where I told the story, adding notes about the telling that I need to remember. 


If I have enough stories on a theme like the FIRE stories, I make a frame, bridge, or a segue through them. That means I plot out each story; have 'character bios' as on FIRE, humans, gods, hummingbird, beaver, Grandma Spider, monkeys, hunters, Bertha Digby. Then make a 'motivation sheet' on each character about their driving concerns that moves the plot forward to the next story. 


The beginning, the gods have FIRE and humans and animals want its warmth and light. So, the middle events: Hummingbird gives to the Pines, Beaver gives to all trees, Grandma Spider throws light to the night sky. Until the climax event, a hunter steals the FIRE from the monkeys to the final event, FIRE burns up the forest. The ending conclusion, Bertha Digby replants the forest for all of us.

If you join my newsletter called the EVENTING. . ., I talk about writing and storytelling. As a new subscriber, you receive the Story Charts used for plotting, character motivation, scenes, framing or the segue, with the bonus of the hero’s journey. There are 12 charts in all. The charts were compiled from storytellers, who shared how they organize their stories. I give this information to whoever wants to craft their best stories to tell or write, please honor this.
