I have some purely curious questions I’d like to present to you, my beloved readers. I think I might be super brave and try one of these other fancy schmanzy “blocks” (I always think, “So named for the blocks they make to impede any work”).
I’ve noticed that some people write fiction on blogs. I’ve noticed some people read fiction on blogs. Admittedly, I do not read much of anything other than articles and blog posts on the PC because I find the backlit screen bothers my eyes after a short period, and I’m not able to relax and sit back like I can with a book or even the phone. I do read some fiction on the phone. I have read one or two books on the PC when I couldn’t get them any other way.
Second part is I have a ton of finished and unfinished stories and novels laying around here, none currently published anywhere other than some out there on Wattpad which no one seems to use any more. Every now and then one of my fictional characters gets up in the middle of the night, puts a sword in my back and says, “You ever gonna finish my story?” to which I admittedly say “Why bother, no one’s ever going to read it.”
(BTW in case you wonder why I’m not publishing even on Kindle or something, I cannot currently earn any income, not a dime, without a severe penalty – essentially a slow death – being imposed not on me, but on my husband due to constraints set by the gov’t on our income in order to receive the medical benefits he must have to survive.)
On a sort of related subject – anyone doing Nanowrimo? Anyone know what Nanowrimo is? LOL. I have participated with varying rates of success in previous years but I can’t make up my mind if I want to take a shot at it this year or not. I’m dealing with some depression. Could make it better. Could make it worse. Could lead to 50,000 words of ranting, or dystopian scifi, or noir in some form or other. I dunno. What do you think?
