We all have pros and cons for writing. Areas of strength and areas of weakness. The problem I am concentrating on this month is my need for speed. I've been in a hurry all my life. Speed walker, short cutter, multi tasker. This is probably why I like haiku so much!
Zipping through life is not great for writing. I can whip up a first draft in no time. What I need to do is slow down and immerse the reader in a setting and make them feel like they are there. But when I write a scene, I concentrate on character movement, action and emotion and dialog. Then I have to go back and add the details to incorporate the senses. I don't want to dwell, but I need to develop the entire scene.
So that's what I'm working on now. Editing and pumping up the experience so it's juuuust right.
Thanks for the listening ears!
What are you working on?
And for Sensational Haiku Wednesday, some fun credit haiku...
Artists earn credit
giving of themselves productsfrom the heart, not free
Credit, I love, hate
thee, with thy tempting tripes of
buy now, pay later.
The government should
be denied further credit
until debts are paid.
