Tuesday Muse-day

I’d like to apologize to all those who read these posts and were looking forward to this weekend’s post. I shouldn’t have planned on weekend posting when this Monday was one of my worst Accounting deadlines. Each year, right around 3/15, 4/15, 9/15, and 10/15 my life gets so busy with tax returns. I ended up working most of the weekend and unfortunately, did not even touch my writing book until yesterday. This means that I will not be posting my stories until at least tomorrow.

On a slightly more positive note, I was thinking about how stories are made and crafted by each different person. Everyone has a different style, different method, and different expectation. In my mind, it was fairly easy to associate this with pottery and molding on a potter’s wheel. The one thing the pottery analogy can’t express well is the struggle of all those little threads of life that an author has to weave. The depth or shallowness of a character can change a whole world. The involvement or abandonment of an item or place can shape your entire story. That’s a lot of pressure, you know? I know that there are a lot of books out there that may be poorly written or have a narrow or faulty plot and my books may end up being among those, but to each person that has ever taken pen to paper (literally or not) and shared a story with the world: Thank you. The world needs more story tellers.

With that, I must be off. I super extra promise to get better with my writing deadlines for you guys. I know a super extra promise isn’t the highest tier of promise (Everyone knows that gosh), but it’s pretty high up there, so you should know I mean business! If any of you would like to share anything with me, my door is always open. Short stories and random musings and criticisms on the human condition are all welcome! Have a great Tuesday everyone.
