“My name and parentage is far more than any still living in my own world know. Just because I have done as I have does not mean that I trust you.”
“That’s understandable,” Nadia muttered, probably loud enough to be heard. Louder, she said “We should probably figure out what brought us all here. Some magic is my guess, but what purpose or inten…[Read more]
I’m sorry, I lost track of this for a bit and then I was too busy to write anything…
I’ll be sure to post this evening so we can keep going.
Ok. That makes sense.
Hey, I wanted to hear Lona and Sky’s response before continuing, and then life just got crazy for me. I am still invested though 🙂

So glad to hear that. Welcome back to the creative stream! May the gusts of Heaven be at your back and your sails full of the gathering push ahead.
For all my Sci-Fi friends out there, I just started a new topic “Is the Speed of Light (c) Slowing – Implications of that for Sci-Fi”. I welcome your thoughts and perspectives on…[Read more]

There is pioneering work being done by an Australian Scientist name Dr. Barry Setterfield [a Christian man] on the well-founded implications that what physicists have traditionally thought was “the Divine Constant” the “speed of light” ( 300 000 km/s [299 792 458 meters per second] or 186 000 mi/s) is NOT constant, but actually has been proven to…[Read more]

So how did “Lucy’s” day begin to go south? How did you first begin to indicate something was going wrong?
If a potential reader was walking through a book store and happened to pick up your book from the shelf, and open to the first page, what lines would you use to hook them in to keep reading? Do you have any examples…[Read more]

So, it’s a little late right now, but it seems like my Writer’s Block is starting to lift (hoorah!), and I will try to get a chapter out tomorrow.
Thanks again for all the help!
You still here?
Aha! My creative juice fountain is flowing again! I have material!
I stared curiously at the three new girls. The first one, Mercedes, was about fifteen, with long golden-blonde hair, and deep blue eyes. Gabi was was about eighteen, with auburn hair,…[Read more]
See yes! You have this careful detailed idea of what your character should be like and then you actually set them loose and they completely murder your plot and preconceived notions of them! Lol but I’m so glad her character’s grown this way, it’s fascinating.
Lol yeah, Alessio is definitely way more sympathetic (I love my sweet, sarca…[Read more]

After a few not quite satisfying starts of my most complete WIP, I finally settled on putting my first scene, POV character into hot water as quickly as possible. The 911 dispatcher was already on the line as the character was in the process of climbing out the window onto the fire escape. I took the advice of Les Edgerton and wasted no time in…[Read more]

Mine usually begin like a normal story. Lucy (my MC) gets home and everything is normal.
You bet! And as for writing consistently. . . I dunno if anyone on here is really writing consistently anymore XD
A logical hummingbird? Sounds great! And funny (maybe because my brain seems to have locked onto Spock LOL XD oh boy. . .) 😀
And that’s really cool about the Spanish-speaking lady.

I am curious, for all my fellow Mystery/Suspense/Thriller Writers out there, how do you begin your stories of this type? Are you willing to share some of your personal examples of your opening lines from a WIP that you use to grab a reader’s attention?
Here are a few that I have used in some stories:

First things first. I had to prepare for anything that went wrong after this. If someone attacked me, I’d kill them, simple as that.
My steps were steady now. My mind was clearer. The world was still shaky and slippery, and I couldn’t quite catch hold of anything, but I could manage now.
My fingers slipped over the shelves. It took me…[Read more]
