Alex of Cassastar fame has organized this blog hop. You can read the details here, it is the first Wednesday of the month. I knew he was a kind hearted Ninja; Alex are you blushing? We are to share our fears, encourage, and help each other during the writing process. I fear, when you visit my blog I you wonder what I am about, it is art, poetry, writing and sometimes a recipe. I fear because I have more than one voice, it causes confusion.
I have had this idea in my head, one I can't shake. I would say I recently encountered a view of something that has altered my perception. You have not entered the Twilight Zone, lol. Walking through some different doors, does either cause one's awareness to change or they bump into things. I did both... I uncovered something deep, dark and ugly. Authentic was my word for this year; this is the opposite. I worry I'm trending in shark infested waters, I have to change names and so much info, so I won't get sued. No, I did not witness a murder, but I did connect the dots to something that should not be happening. It takes away from the very essence it is involved in. It could ruin me, if I tell it and it might ruin me if I don't.
I worry about losing members all the time, but I know we connect at different times for different reasons. I'm encouraged by meeting, so many unique souls. I love that we all have a voice. I love that people(bloggers) for the most part are respectful and kind to one another. Lately, I don't see much of this in the real world.
Is this how it feels, when you decide this is the book you should write?! What elements should I be aware of when trying to make a non fiction event into fiction? Do you have any bait for the sharks?
