By the time I was done reading I realized I had made more mistakes then I thought, good to know and now I can watch my self for those mistakes! Hope you read it, its a grate post to say the least.

My Thoughts on How I Wrote My First Person Novel with My Fingers on My Keyboard.


About artfulhelix

I'm a mother to three beautiful boys, 8 years, 2 years, and 1 year old, all there birthdays in April with mine (very busy month). I am a wife to a wonderful man who supports every thing I want to do. I have 10 piercings and 11 tattoos, more tattoos coming soon. I am an artist, painting, tattooing, sculpting (haven't done that for a long time), poetry, and a few small crafts. As an artist I felt writing was the next logical step for me. I am enjoying every minute of it, writing, blogging (never thought I would blog), and critiquing. I not only want to talk about my book and the writing proses, but art in general in my blog. I would like to share a poem I wrote a few years ago, but is so me. I came up with it when a very old woman came up to me on the side walk and said " Do you know you are going to hell?" laughing a little inside I said "No, why am I going to hell?" "Because you have desecrated the lords temple with all your piercings and tattoos!" She looks so serious when she said this. I said "I'm not desecrating, I'm decorating!" well that made her mad of course, and she stomped off. later I wrote this: You look at me that way in disgust and disdain I’m pierced and tattooed I must be insane But who are you to judge when you kneel down and pray Just because our beliefs are not the same We are not so different you and I for we are all the same when we die This is nothing against religion, merely about judgment in general. Can't wait to share more of what I love and who I am.

  1. I’m writing my first in first-person POV too, it can be tricky at times. I’ve gone back over my writing and found mistakes quite often. Used to teach English, but the tenses catch me out sometimes when I’m trying to write creatively in them, whilst keeping the characters and their worlds in mind too.

    Do you have any samples on your blog? I haven’t clicked around yet so sorry if I’m being blind, I just went straight into the comments after seeing this on the reader!

    • I have been working on three projects over the past two years, and no matter how much I read and learn about writing I find there is always more, to be honest I love that. For some reason I always feel silly like I should have seen that mistake on my own, but I know I am to close to it sometimes to see those mistakes. I am still struggling with getting my POV and everything just right. That is why I never stop trying to learn as much about writing as I can.

      I don’t think of you as being blind 🙂 I do have some but they are older and have been changed seance posted (I do have a few poems up) except one, https://artfulhelix.wordpress.com/2013/07/12/life-throws-curve-balls/

      I actually lost my critique partner because I was without a computer for months, that is also why I didn’t post for so long. I am so glade to be back to writing and blogging.

      Thanks for the comment it was the best I have gotten in some time, hope to hear from you again 🙂
