teols2016: Sorry my appearances on this fine site have been sparse lately. I've been busy with a new job, returning to school, getting the flu, and dealing with a concrete-like case of writer's block. I'm back (hopefully) and a new installment for "Changing on the Fly" will go up momentarily. Thanks for the continuing support.

teols2016: Well, all of "2ndd Time Around" is up and "Changing on the Fly" is going up...well, the chapters I've finished, at least. I am currently running 2nd Time Around through editing software to catch what I'm missing. As I feed the chapters through, I'll re-post them. If anynne notices anything or has an opinion, I'd be grateful to hear it. I'll re-promote chapters as I go to make it worth your while. The edited prologue should be up and promoted in the next ten minutes.

teols2016: I saw an interview on CNN the other day with the creator/lead writer of Downton Abbey, Lord something-or-other. I've never seen an episode of the show (probably evident of my likely misspelling of the name) but something he said stuck with me. Writing for a TV show is very different than writing a script for a play or film because, as more seasons come along, the characters are more developed, in part due to the actors playing them, and you have to keep these developments in mind as you progress. In my opinion, writing a novel is similar as the characters of the book develop through the pages and you'll soon find yourself needing to consider your character's developments to determine the choices they would make.

    Linda Engel: excellent. Very well stated. I have watch every episode of Downton Abby . It is wonderful.

    damommy: Your character development is excellent. I see them growing from chapter to chapter. I look forward to their continual growth as I read along. 8-)

teols2016: I've been writing as long as I can remember. I like to take real-life situations and work with them. How would something done decades ago be done differently in modern times? Can humanity be found in the darkest and bleakest places? Can a person rise to face down a life-changing obstacles? These and more are questions I aim to answer in my work.

    Linda Engel: Have fun and don't forget to enjoy the work of those around you, too. Fan and be fanned.
    January 5, 2016 at 11:17PM
    damommy: Each person answer these questions in different ways, and who's to say which is the best or correct? Keep at it the way you are going. You're the best!
