Action!


Well, I finally finished my action piece today. It’s taken me ages lol…. I wrote 3 short stories trying to get it right, the balance between dialogue and things actually happening. Anyway, all I have to do now is type it up and I’ll post it to my other blog later today 😉 I’m thinking I might use it for this 3000 word story comp i keep meaning to do, but, the trouble is it doesn’t really go anywhere, it’s just a scene about domestic violence. There I go again not writing the happy stuff lol

In my attempts to get my action piece done I did a lot of faffing (I love that word lol) about with my notebook…..and one of the things I did was an exercise on Quests….what is it that people/characters seek? Here’s my list so far…….

Money
Success
Power
Fame
A Different Life
A Soul Mate/Love
A Cure For A Disease
Adventure
Excitement
A Purpose
Spiritual Enlightenment
Fullfillment
Companionship
Happiness
Salvation
Peace & Quiet
Community
Support
Strength
Good Physical Health
Good Mental Health
Knowledge/Education
Change
Immortality
Faith
A Perfect Body
Youthfulness
Friendship
To Be Liked
A New Start
Freedom
To Be Needed
To Win
To Be The Best

I’m sure there must be hundreds…..so this is a page that will definitely get added to over time. Something will suddenly come to me when I least expect it lol (I’ve even added 3 more since I’ve been typing this lol). All characters are seeking something aren’t they? It’s what drives the story.

I won’t get much writing done today as I’m out later, with a friend for afternoon tea….I don’t think she’d appreciate me whipping out my notebook do you? Lol 😉
