The five objects found in my writing space.

Five objects found in my writing space: binders full of stories, my computer, chair, and two tables cluttered with to-do lists, small objects taped or sitting here and there crucial to the stories, a scanner, and a printer. Not to mention boxes of old stories, and my employment history, and a cupboard full of my affirmation books, and binders filled with passwords and web account information. I've been in this room about 20 years. 

All my art supplies, drawings, and dummies for pictures books are in my art shed outside, packed, I mean stacked with art projects! The studio is about 10 years old. I have enough ideas to last two lifetimes - and all the while communication keeps changing and developing into new avenues to walk, run, or stumble down.

I will ever get done all I have dreamed up (stories and art) because I begin only to have to redo again with the new techniques. Like the highways of two lines which are now 5 to 8 lane in both directions with walkers, bicycles, and small, scooters alone the sides. 



Over-whelmed by possibilities, I sit and do nothing.

How did my writing creativity evolved since I began writing?

How did my creativity evolve since I began my writing?

VERY WELL! Since I had no creative writing and only ditto sheets to fill out when in grammar school, 1st to the 6th grade, creating a sentence with correct grammar and spelling was impossible for me. I did not think of writing as creative, and I still think working out the paragraph order, sentences, spelling, grammar, punctuation to make meaningful, a skill is not creativity but dependence on symbols for sounds. Writing for me is trying matching the letters of the alphabet in words with more sounds then respesented and arranged in a mysterious order to make a word for a spelling test. MEMORIZING! 


Finally today, after many years of practice I have enough word skills to write. I'm a victim, a pure visual learner, due to Sally, Dick and Jane, which was taught by who, when, where and how by looking at the picture.  NOT ONE SOUND for the LETTERS!

Still, today I have evolved into a writer and continue to amaze myself; I can write the stories I create for others to read.

WRITING MODE?

Join the the group.
I write from visual imagination and creative thought process. The mind, inside my head, is the place of imagines. I see pictures and hear sound. This process started from childhood, I made up stories. I do like sounds and that is one of my basic ways to learn.

Learning a written language was and still is for me a long process of getting spelling and grammar and speaking words correct, so that people understand my visual thoughts.

What I hear and what I see as the written symbols in world of the alphabetal symbols for sounds, which are really aberrations ‘departures from what I hear as normal, usual, or expected’, as for the word aberration, typically from my ears the sounds spoken to the written form is not what I hear. This departure also happens from seeing a story and putting the story into written words. My mind and voice portraits the pictures different when I talk to someone, I must remember to make the picture clear for the listener.

To avoid on publication journey?

Join the group!
What pitfalls would you warn other writers to avoid on their publication journey?

Do the editing, once, twice, and more -- then hire a professional to edit, after that stop writing and doing any edits yourself. 

Have one copy of the text polished, finished, and ready to format for the different ebooks, print on demand, and kindle.  Make edits only to this format.

My writing goals yesterday and today!

Join the Group!

My ultimate writing goals, and have they changed over time. (If at all)?

Since 2009 to beyond 2018, my dearest goals are becoming, now looking forward to 2019.
Most projects are set-up; I just update with my written words, videos, drawings, and photo images! And link together for others to travel around the vast web as my Faery Rhyonna, who sits on her Dandelion watching and listening.

Still, need a hardcover for Rhyonna's Fright for bookstores in IngramSparks by DECEMBER 2018. Granddaughter is correcting the last edit.

For April's NANOWRICAMP, this year did DRAWN LINES - how-to-use LINE in art. Made a small hand-held book with lessons including types of lines, textures, and composition. Put on wattpad.com and April A2Z Challenge. Next to apply and teach DRAWN LINES at the Frank Bette Museum.
