  1. Thank you. I did send you an email to the above mentioned address. I said it was from me in the subject line. Looking forward to hearing from you.
  2. Would it be ok if I just shared something here. This is a poem I wrote that is actually a part of my story "The Body of Chris" . It is my take on what I would call a "Beat Poem" ( think beatniks of the 60's with berets and John Lennon glasses all snapping their fingers instead of applauding ) I hope you like it. " Who Needs Jesus " Who needs Jesus Jesus, who sees us Who frees us To be us The we that He Wants us to be, us The 9 to 5 us The dead and alive us The hip and the jive us The husband and wife us The sighted and blind us The "I'm lo
  3. Good point Nicola. I have not suffered abuse personally. But I will wait and pray and see where God leads. I currently have a 20K word story that I am sharing. I am mostly an "idea guy". I write poems and I have a couple of plays that can be turned around and made into screenplays (maybe) . Who knows at this point. I used to write for myself but I feel it is time to write for others. Thank you again for your support and kind words.
  4. Agreed. That is what I meant. Easier from a writer's perspective. Thank you.
  5. Thank you for the encouragement. Maybe instead of sexual we change it to a verbal or physical abuse ( a little easier pill to swallow ). Also i have another thread here about a book I call The Body of Chris. I posted the first 2 chapters and have received some good feedback. I might continue on. I was also thinking of switching it to a screenplay. Thanks again for your kindness.
  6. I am just curious. Is anybody here a screenwriter ? I have been getting pretty good feedback from my first couple of chapters. I think it would probably be better as a movie. When I wrote the story I had the movie playing in my head. What is the format for a screenplay? Did you have an outline you followed ? Any help would be appreciated.
  7. That is good to know. Wil be looking for more help as I pursue this dream further. Thank you all.
  8. So many talented and successful authors. I wrote poems through high school and I was part of a group that helped with the Christmas Production at church. I was lucky enough to write a majority of a scene once and I incorporated that in my story. I know I can't afford a real publisher but how much $$ do you need to self publish ? I would love some input on it. I look forward to maybe working with 1 or 2 of you. Thank you.
  9. I have had a poem in the local paper and 2 contests based on the Scrabble game published in Games Magazine and Games World of Puzzles. But I would like to publish a Novella ( maybe 2 ) .
  10. I am new.to this group and I was curious if anyone has been published ? How many copies did you sell ?
  11. Thank you Lynn. I was unaware that we had to have a certain number of posts before we were allowed in certain forums. Has anyone here been published ? How many copies did you sell ?
  12. To Zee, thank you. I tried to get into the critique and feedback forum but it would not let me in. So let me just say that my story is about 3 people who are met with accidents/ illnesses that require a transplant for them to survive. A young Latina woman who we first meet in a High School party where she is given alcohol and is raped by her date. She becomes an alcoholic and needs a new liver. We then meet a gay ( yes he is gay ) Asian man who wants to make movies. There is an accident with the lights on set and he needs new corneas to restore his sight. Lastly is a know it all ad writer
  13. Thank you Lynn. It is a brand new idea. I am not sure , really , how to begin, but if another writer thinks that this is a good idea and would like to collaborate, I might be interested. Provided they leave me just a small piece of their coattail to ride on.
  14. I am new to this. I have an idea for a story. I am not sure I can write the whole story but I have the title and the storyline. A young man becomes a pastor like his father before him. Nobody knew the years of sexual abuse this young pastor went through at the hands of his father. When the young pastor has a son of his own he vows that the cycle of abuse ends. I call it "The Altered Boy" What do you think ?
  15. Has anybody ever tried podcasting ? My friend just started one today. She called it "Building Pyramids ". If you want to , look it up. And thank you for the warm welcome.
  16. I do plan on answering that but I just want to figure out a short synopsis that doesn't give too much away. I will be sharing it with you in a couple days
  17. Hello to all, my name is Keith I am from upstate N.Y. and looking to share my ideas with like minded individuals. I write mostly for my own amusement but would like to one day see my work in print. I write predominately Christian works, songs ( to music in my head that I can't play ) poetry and musings, but I do have a 20K word story that I would love to see become a novel ( hopefully a movie ? ) . Hope to talk to you all and take ( as well as give ) advice and kind words. Thanks.
  18. I have a Christian fiction story that contains a little bit more than 20K words. Not long enough for a novel. I believe it could make a great movie or novel if I had some help to lengthen it, fill it out more. I am used to writing poems or lyrics that can tell a story in 3 or 4 minutes. Where do I go now ?? Who should read it ? I don't have $$ to spend but I would love some assistance. Perhaps even a collaborator? Help !
