    I'm not sure if I'll stay on Kingdom Pen (or is it Story Embers?) for much longer. I'm a member of too many sites. :(

      if you're feeling overwhelmed cutting that down may help you focus.

      It might. I'm hoping to keep a couple, but I've already removed a couple of accounts. Hopefully it'll help.

  2. 1 story I want to write has to do with something from my dad's past. He's told the story about how he wasn't careful of what he "wished for" (he prayed for another boss because his current one wasn't nice). Turns out the second boss was worse.

  3. I'm deleting a few accounts that pertain to writing. Not this one. If it's a Christian site it's safe. For now, anyway. I'll have to see how often I come here in the coming weeks/months.

     

    I was so sure I'd be using each of the accounts I'm getting rid of, but, alas, I've pretty much ignored them from the second month. If not before that.

     

    *sad sigh*

  4. I've been rather lazy about writing. To think I could have composed an entire story (or two) during the more Quarantine time.

     

    Did I? Of course not!

     

    I don't quite understand my inability to write full stories. I have them planned out in my head and I manage to write some, but I'm so often blocked up. 😢

  5. Am I able to create more than one club?

      I don't think there's a limit :D

      I've just forgotten how then. I'll see if I can remind myself what to do. ^_^

  6. So this book/story has been "in the wings" for quite some time. Like most of my other ideas/projects, actually. As I said previously, it will no longer be in a trilogy. Actually, I don't think the trilogy is going to happen. But I do have projects just waiting for me to work on them. *sighs sadly* If only I could concentrate on them.
  7. Well I've been absent from the writing game for quite a while now. But I'm going to try and get back into it - something I should have done when quarantine was "stronger". I doubt I'll be going out very much even now, though. Still a lot of restrictions in our area.

     

    So maybe I'll finally get some writing done. And make more book covers. That, however, could just be a colossal waste of time. And money. *frowns & shrugs*

      Good to see you again! 🙂

      Good to be back!! ^_^

      I am really, truly, honestly hoping to get some writing accomplished in the coming months. I should have been writing in earnest  since January (at least), but I was too lazy. Instead, I stocked up on Hallmark and The Asylum movies on YouTube. And don't worry. The Asylum movies I watched were all 'B' rated at best. ^_^

  8. I'm considering that I'll just post my stories chapter-by-chapter on my blogsite and ask for donations if people care to give anything.

    What do you think?

    1. zx1ninja

      zx1ninja

      How much traffic does your blogsite get? If it's a reasonable amount it could work well.

  9. I've been putting off hopefully making book covers again for some time. However, I recently purchased a 100 photos/images bundle on depositphoto.com. I have no really idea if I'll actually use all those downloads, but thankfully it was a sale a friend told me about. I hope I didn't waste my money, though.

     

    Are any of you in need of book covers? Or maybe banners of some kind? I don't cost that much. Truly, I don't. (in fact, I've been told I need to ask for more.)

  10. So I'm wanting to write a story about COVID-19 from my point of view (I know, selfish, but I don't know others very well). I'm certain I'll need to do at least some research and interview a few people, but because it'll be from my own POV, it shouldn't be too difficult to write most of it.

     

    I'm still trying to decide on a title for it, since COVID-19 just sounds too short and "boring". Any thoughts/suggestions on this would be awesome.

     

    But I've been putting this project off for a while now. I'm going to write it. For A.O. That's Author Olympics - a group/activity on Facebook that I joined a week or two ago. I'm really looking forward to seeing how it goes. :D

      I'm not entirely certain about it. I'm pretty sure it'll be more along the lines of the second alternative. Since faith in God is good in any situation...

      I've never been very good at doing research. Even in school when I had the teacher's or someone else's help. But I'm pretty sure I'll be researching several things for this novella. And, of course, there are the others I'm hoping to write.

       

      I did manage to get the prologue for EtS complete last week. One of my friend and fellow writing told me she really liked it. I'm not sure why I've struggled with chapter 1 of the same story, though.

  11. I've tried doing LIVE videos a few times on my Facebook account. However, the most responses to such things I've had is 1 or 2. And I was online for a while just now. I try giving people some heads up, but it's not very easy for me to wait. I asked in my writer group if anyone wants to try one but no one ever answered.

     

    *sigh*

      I just don't understand why they can't be courteous enough to tell me so.

      Oh well.

       

      Not to mention the only person you see is the one IN the live video. Oh well.

      And sometimes doing things like that is hard. I can write on here while doing other things, but phone calls are almost impossible around here. 😕

      Oh well. I guess I'll live. ^_^

  12. So during this "quarantine" for COVID-19, I'm hoping and planning to get several things accomplished.

     

    • Writing something from start to finish that's worth getting published.
    • Remaking a number of book covers, though selling them isn't looking very likely. Also, learning Photoshop Elements so they turn out better.
    • Maybe learning more Spanish.
    • Helping Mom with her French. Helping Dad learn Facebook for LIVE videos.
    • Learning to cook/bake (at least moderately).
    • Create/Paint/Artistic endeavors.
    • And a couple of other things.

    Basically, I want to make my life so busy I'm surprised when the "quarantine" is lifted.

      The book covers....😪....aren't too likely, in actuality. I may own a fantastic program and have several hundred photos saved in various electronic apparatuses, but that doesn't mean I'm very good.

       

      People usually just make their own because they think it's "cheaper". I honestly don't see how that's possible. I mean, they have to pay for the program (if they want a good one), plus the photos/images they use. They also have to spend the time learning the program and how to use it - which takes away from their writing time.

       

      I honestly don't see the appeal. My prices were never that high, anyway.

       

      Oh well. I've wasted money on something I thought for sure would be worth learning to do. 😕 I guess I'll have to stick with making my own. Not that I'll ever use all the photos I have for just mine.

      The thing about goals for me is that I set them repeatedly - sometimes lowering my own expectations so they're truly manageable - but rarely do I actually complete them. :(

  13. I'm going to try a craft/hack I've seen done on YouTube numerous times (okay, so it's the same clip, but so what?). I'll let you know how it turns out. ^_^

    1. KR LaLonde

      KR LaLonde

      Well that's a major disappointment. I don't have transfer paper/tape so that won't work. -_-

  14. I am thinking that - other than not being at TH (like a Dunkin Donuts) or somewhere else other than at home - I'm thinking this being "stuck" at home for days without an end in sight might actually be good for me.

     

    I might actually get so bored I both write something WORTH PUBLISHING and learn something new on YOUTUBE.

  15. WoW. So we just had our first online prayer meeting with Facebook live. I have to say it was very nice to not have to get all dressed up (well, not like I do for Sundays) in order to attend. I have a cold (donut worry, its a REAL COLD, not COVID--19) to be there. It went fairly well. :) More people were able to attend.

      Facebook Live is certainly better than nothing. And there were actually a few people there who usually aren't.

      I understand that. As a fulltime caregiver, it's hard to go. Worse is that when you do, everyone makes you feel bad for being gone so long, or acts like they don't even know you. It makes going even harder, which is really sad.

      That is tough.
