Interested in a Story?
(Kitty) I've been thinking and wondering on and off for several years if I'd enjoy writing a newspaper column. The biggest drawback to getting started is that I probably wouldn't be paid a dime, and I'd have a weekly deadline anyway. I'd also thought about writing a serial - a story that is published a scene or a chapter at a time. Again, potentially a lot of work for little reward... even though I'm pretty sure I'd enjoy doing it.
Lately, I've been thinking that allowing money to rule every career decision is not necessarily a wise career decision. This morning I read in Colossians 3:23, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward." So I started thinking, well, why not? I'll be working at my writing with all my heart, and you can't "practice" enough in any form of art, so I only had one more question:
Are you interested in reading a weekly or bi-weekly serial? If so, I need to hear from you here or by email.
I would probably start at the beginning of January - a good time for new beginnings. I could test out a few ideas I already have, or you could give me an idea here. I'll choose whichever sounds the most fun and get started. So would you like to read about:
- angels and demons
- elves and fairies and dwarves in a modern setting
- superheroes in a modern setting
- fairy tales re-imagined
- young adult fiction (like Harry Potter or Twilight or Inkheart)
- something else
- OH YEAH - Ann just reminded me - something set in Sydney (duh!) LOL!
If no one responds, I may take that to mean no one will want to read it, and I may decide not to do it. So let me know!
