  2. Hi Vera,
    I just love your writing. You have an excellent ear for dialog and your story flows nicely, with characters to care about. You are going to have great success.
    I only wish that I could write with your speed. But alas, I have a demanding job and too busy a life leaving me precious little time each day. Anyway, I admire your productivity.
    I’ll be by time and again to read more. And thank you for liking the Lore!
    By the way, we must be kindred spirits, we two. I was born on the 20th of June, just a day after you… but many years before.
    Cheers,
    John K

    • Thanks a lot for your kind words! I’m gonna try and keep my writing interest and engaging on every level. A tough feat, but I love a challenge.

      I will be reading through your story too as I find the time. πŸ™‚

      • Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your positivity with me. I love your writing style and so envy you! I have never been very good at narrative and suspect “brevity” is my real middle name. I suppose that’s why I write more poetry and scripts. Regards, Sandra

  3. Hello Vera.
    Loving your work. You have quite the talent.
    Have you ever tried out National Novel Writing Month? It’s a challenge to start and finish a novel in November. Either way, it taught me a lot of the skills I used to finish my first novel, (such as actually finishing said novel). It was one of those things I wish I’d found when I was younger, and you might get a kick out of it.
    Regardless, looking forward to seeing more of your work.

  4. Hi Vera!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and liking the post about my goodreads book giveaway contest.

    Congratulations on starting up your blog recently. I’ve read a bit of the writing you’ve posted there. I think you have a keen way with words, and some pretty interesting ideas, too. I like how you seem to already know to show your readers details about the scene and characters, instead of just coming out and telling us what we need to know. For example, “Jeremy hauled over in the darkness and laid a hand on Denver’s wrist with a clank. With a buzzing sound, his grip tightened until her wrist was almost crumpling under the pressure.” These sentences show that there is something different about Jeremy and Denver that what we think of with the soldiers we’re familiar with, but it’s intriguing that you’re not telling everything at once. I like to see hints that build along the way, so my imagination can start to put the pieces together. That shows respect for your reader. Bravo!

    I’m following your blog, so I can keep up with your writing. Best wishes for your first novel, and your serialized story. (I loved King’s The Green Mile!)

    All the best,
    Rob

    • Thanks a lot for your comment! I am trying pretty much exactly what you said, to drop hints like that about things like the characters and the background. I don’t want the backstory to ever take centre stage of the story, which is why I drop stuff in subtly that you can ignore if you aren’t interested.

      I try and keep things ‘in the moment’ at all times πŸ™‚

      Thanks for the kind words :))

  5. Vera – I thank you for stopping by and reading my ‘ramblings’ you write similar to moi. I enjoyed the read. Yes writing the novel has more meaning for me..as does you I suspect than writing blogs. We are writers and exhilarate in having our thoughts /our imagination portrayed in whatever forum. I have written a memoir which I am having published, after many favourable but non committed responses I have taken this road..we shall what becomes of it. Keep writing – keep expressing and follow your dreams. πŸ™‚
