I want to write a villain. A female villain. And I want to make you like her.
I lived for Act I of the audio dramatization and I am LIVING for Act II . Everybody listen to this. It’s a great break for they days when your job makes you want to put a pistol to your head.
Hi. I have a dark sense of humor.
The first big step you have to take is to keep a journal to help you find your voice as a writer.
I’ve been blogging for 20+ years. Have I found my voice? Does any of my writing make other people think “that sounds like Katie” when they read it? I have no idea, personally.
When I was blogging on Myspace, someone took a photo of me and went around commenting blogs pretending to be me. They were pretending to be my voice. I’ve even had some of my comments on Myspace printed in an e-book somewhere on Amazon.
I don’t know if my writing has left a voice. I don’t know if I have left an imprint on the internet or on anyone.
I have been taking notes about method writing. I guess we’ll see what happens next. Maybe I’ll unlock something I didn’t know I had in me.
…to the Los Angeles Review, a publication that comes out in print once a year and posts regularly online.
I’m going to submit something to one of their contests.
I’m really nervous about that. It will take two to four months for me to get an answer. In the meantime, I am searching for places that might get me published faster.
My Dad got me a subscription to a magazine that advertises writing contests every month, so a lot of my time will be spent writing short stories, flash fiction, and a few more different genres. I’ll be posting here but there won’t be very many essays or articles until the end of the summer.
