IWSG NOVEMBER question is –
What is your favorite aspect of being a writer?
- Creating characters profiles. World building. Creating connections within connections with symbolic and metaphoric touches that drives the subconscious of the character and building the complexity.
- Making stuff up. The Possibilities!
- Making the story follow logic even in a fantastical situation within the story limits you set up.
- Creating emotional connection. I love deep point of view but I am still a novice at that and learning, but it makes me happy when I nail the emotion.
- Making sure the law of cause and effect holds true within the story. That choice/action generates a reaction/consequence be it internal or external or both, which is the best kind.
These last three are developed likes in the course of learning, honing, and practicing story craft as I play at working. Writing story makes me feel like a kid and that anything is possible. Below, something I used to say a lot, especially when younger, and still sometimes do.
If I could be anybody in the world, I’d be a heroine in a book so I could live many lives, many adventures, see the world, fall in out of love and back in love again, experience space travel and fight pirates. Best of all, I’d be a Jedi Knight. ~Juneta
I’ve written almost as long as I have been able to write. My early years were writing to make stuff up for entertainment and to see if I could, and then that changed to serious-minded play in RPG’s creating characters with their own stories that played out in my beloved story worlds. e.g. Star Wars, LOTR & one in a Pern-like world, and now as a career creating my own worlds and original stories.
As Holly Lisle likes to say…

I AM HAVING COMMENTING PROBLEMS.
WORKING ON FINDING A FIX.
I COMMENTED TUE ON SOME OF THESE BLOGS JUST FINE NOW MY COMMENTS ARE MAGICALLY SWALLOWED INTO NEVERLAND WHEN I POST ON ALL BLOGS, SO FAR EXCEPT ON 3 BLOGS-(2 WP & 1 BLOGGER).
NOT SURE WHAT THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THOSE 3 BLOGS BECAUSE IT HAPPENS ON ALL OTHER WP AND BLOGGER BLOGS I HAVE VISITED. I HAVE TRIED AT LEAST 10 BLOGS COMMENTING MULTIPLE TIMES ON EACH TO NO AVAIL BEFORE I GAVE IT UP FOR THE NIGHT.
FYI I have been trying to post on WP and Blogger blogs and return comments but they are being eaten. I’ve googled several different fixes none have worked.
I will try again tomorrow. I have never had this happen before so not sure what is going on. I have spent way too much time trying to figure this out so moving on so I can accomplish something today. It is 7pm already–been at it all day, only left one comment on Anna’s blog, not sure why can post there and none of the others I always post on. Too weird!!!
Grrrrr, I’ve maintenance my computer, my browser and google with half a dozen different fixes, NONE work. I still cannot comment or return comments on peoples blogs I’ve commented on forever. My comments have become ghost disappearing as if I never typed them. It’s 1 am and I’m going to bed. I am so frustrated with this.
