Okay so I don't feel like writing at this very moment and I have nothing in my inbox to critique....so it looks like blogging for me :)
I know I hardly ever post, but I'm hoping when this WIP is complete I will be able to mingle a little better.
So, this is the part where I ramble :)
(I'm the curly headed one if you couldn't tell:)
My current WIP- my memoirs, is the first story that I have ever written in first person, and I love it! I'm enjoying channeling my inner fifteen year old self. I can tell that my writing is stronger and I finally have voice! In my previous wip I wrote in third person, and though the plot and characters are pretty solid, that sassy, witty voice has always been something I struggle with. I'm more poetic than witty. BUT my fifteen year old self was sassy, mouthy, feisty, and as quick to throw a punch as she was to land a kiss. I had forgotten her, and it is a blast finding her again. Here are some clips
I see Officer Douche-bag typing into his computer as we walk past. No doubt he’s writing in his report how uncooperative I was; how I’m a damaged girl with issues who just wants attention.
What I want is to spit in his face. I settle for a glare and a mental middle finger. Bye Jerk.

if the jury doesn’t believe me either? There is a very real possibility that my
rapist could one
day be set free. The only comfort I find in that knowledge is
that I now know his name. If he is ever
set free, I will have no choice but to
hunt him down and kill him. Even if this lands me in prison,
even if he kills
me instead. I simply cannot live in a world where he walks the streets.

I look at Brian and he is wide eyed. It’s clear
he has been awake longer than me, but how long? Did I
snore? Was I drooling? I
am a notorious sleep drooler.
These are just a few snippets....what about you? Have you found your voice? Have you found that story that is flowing as easily as water? Tell me about your current WIP.
