  1. I now have an idea about characters. Before the Temptation, a gal in her late teens is betrothed to a guy about the same age. At the Temptation, he eats the forbidden fruit. She does not. After he's cast out from Eden, he's not able to return. However, she, who remains uncorrupted, can leave and reenter at will. She often goes into the wilderness to visit him. The problem is, that there is another gal, who's among the outcasts, who's also after him. This looks like a two gals after the same guy adventure plot. I've used the same plot before in some of my writings.
  2. Things are okay now. Last evening I got on the phone with someone at yahoo. We worked things out. Now my account has been changed to Premium, for which I will only be charged a little more than $5 a month. Hopefully, that should be enough to prevent any more problems with my yahoo account.
  3. I switched my computer off and on, if that's what "rebooting" means. I'm still having the same problem. Then it looks like we're both right. It's yahoo's problem. Unless "rebooting" means something else.
  4. I'm not sure where to post this, but it does involve my account with Christianwriters.com. I'm having trouble with my yahoo e-mail account, which does receive notifications about items posted here on this website. The problem is that I can't delete any e-mails I've been receiving. Also, I can't send messages. While most of what I receive I consider junk mail, there are always messages I consider important. They include notifications from this website, along with messages from my sister, friends and others. Would anyone know what I'd have to do to get things working again? If so I could use his or her advice. On the other hand, I might not be the only one this is happening to. A lot of people using yahoo mail, might be having the same problem. If so, it's yahoo's problem, not mine. Which means it will be fixed soon enough, and I can stop panicking. Thank the Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen.
  5. The video of his lecture is an hour and a half in length? It's just "Section 1"? Okay. I'll give it a shot; but I'll probably be taking a number of breaks during the viewing.
  6. I just got this idea overnight. Supposing that before things get out of hand, the Uncorrupted People decide to cut down the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and burn all its fruit?
  7. Thank you Erin! Hope you enjoy the trip. Totally. It looks like you weren't exaggerating when you said you were my collaborator. I'll be truly glad to receive whatever help you can give me. However, in the ten days that you'll be away, I won't just be sitting around bored. I'll try to do as much writing as I'm able. Then after you've returned, I'm sure you'll be very helpful in improving whatever I've been able to write. Thank you again.
  8. Now that I've got a good idea about the situation and plot, I thought I was ready to begin the actual writing. I'm far from it. The problem is that the story needs characters.
  9. According to Genesis 1:12-13: " The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day." According to Genesis 2: 8-9: "Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." This means that the fruit of the Knowledge of Good and Evil existed on the third day, before Adam and Eve were created on the sixth day, and was prepared for them. Some thing to give the reader something to wonder about.
  10. Now I'm thinking that while the Serpent was cast out, the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil remains rooted in the soil of Eden, with numerous ripe fruit still hanging from its branches. Without the Serpent's presence, it's even more tempting.
  11. Thank you Erin Cook. Unlike Fiddler, all the other stories concern American small towns in the early to mid-twentieth Century. Fiddler presents a very different culture. That could be part of A Different Eden. Just what would it's small town culture be like? I've just read the first five chapters of Genesis. It shows many things I should consider. One of them, is that Adam and Ever were expelled from the Garden at once, along with the Serpent. In my book, the corruptions and expulsions might occur one individual at a time. If so, wouldn't the Serpent have already been cast out, along with the first who'd been corrupted? I'm going to have a lot of things to work out.
  12. I've given this story the working title "A Different Eden". I'm developing an idea about the story's structure. It could be described as a "Small Town" narrative. Like "Main Street", or "Our Town". "To Kill a Mocking Bird"? "Peyton Place'?; or maybe more exotic, like "Fiddler on the Roof"? The plot would be a "Town Divided". The condescending Self Righteous, who remain in Eden; vs the resentful Outcasts in the Wilderness, just across the hedges of thorns and thistles; who are looking for some way to get even. Among the outcasts, would be the deceiving, beguiling Serpent Lucifer. He would be their Leader. This looks like the basis for a suspense thriller; of which I have written many.
  13. I understand the theology about the tree of life; so I'm giving this very long and careful thought before I begin the actual writing. I also intend to make it thoroughly clear that the book is a work of fiction; and not a "New Revelation from God".
  14. I certainly will be very glad to receive any help you offer. I wonder if you might want to read one of my completed writings first, so you'll have a good idea what my writing is like. If it won't take too much of your time, I have written a full length novel. It's a suspense thriller, with a Christian theme, titled "A Gatored Community." You can find it posted on the writers website fanstory.com, where I use the pen name MrBillyDA. There it has received 56 positive reviews. https://fanstory.com/displaystory.jsp?hd=1&id=772667 The work consists of approximately 53,000 words, divided into 26 chapters, on 166 pages, using Microsoftword format. In return, I'd like to ask if there are any writings of yours that you'd like me to read and review? Thank you.
  15. Thank you Erin. The more I think about this, the more ideas I get. I hope I haven't taken on more than I can handle. The story could easily be going off in many different directions, and there'd be no end to the writing. I'm still ready to see what suggestions anybody has.
