9 comments on “My “Chatting with the Authors” schedule this week…:)

  1. Hi, Thomas. Just want you to know that I love these chats, as they are sort of mini-bios of the authors. Very valuable to know what is and was behind a novel you’re reading! 8-)

    • Hi Judith…I’m so glad you enjoy them. Yes, I do enjoy getting to know all my buds, too. When you read their work (whenever I get the chance) it makes you feel that much closer to the writing, you know?

      • Probably long enough for a post, but here’s the condensed version. I fear that I will look stupid — how childish is that? I read others’ fiction, even just beginner’s stuff, and then I look at what I’ve written and I hate it. I’ve written 3,800+ words in the last two days, and I still don;t know a thing about what I want to say — what I’ve written sounds false and very childish, and I’m almost ready to quit before the month even starts. I know I shouldn’t care, but I do.

      • Thomas, thank you so much for the offer, but I already deleted it, and I’m starting fresh. I think one of my problems is that I wasn’t particularly passionate about my subject — I’ve thought of a better topic, more in line with my beliefs and experiences. Thank you for your generosity and your kindness. I may, with your permission take you up on your offer to be a reader in the future. Thanks so much.

      • I’d be happy to…it all depends on the type of writing you want to do. If it’s fiction, then you at least have to have clear pictures. Of your characters, and of the plot. Sketching your characters personalities can help, and outlining the plot a bit might, too…
