Re: Winners for ACTION/ADVENTURE GENRE Challenge

Well done everyone!

I don't know about anyone else, but I have found these themes great fun, but oh so challenging!

For those in the US, and to those of us who aren't, may you have yourselves a wonderful and blessed thanksgiving.

Blessings,

Helen

Re: Be a Better Writer -- ACTION/ADVENTURE

Trace, I have to ask . . . did you submit your story?!

Don't tell me the title though; I'll see if I can track it down :-)

Blessings,

Helen.

(PS: I finally entered one, why does my brain function best under pressure, usually at ridiculously early hours of the morning?! Gahh!!).

Re: Top 15 Finalists - 2014 Page Turner Contest

Well done to you all! To the top 15, how exciting; I wonder how any of you will sleep for the next 10 nights?! To the remaining 30, well done on taking the chance to submit something, you are all so very brave. And remember, this doesn't necessarily mean it's the end of that writing . . . perhaps th...

Re: Be a Better Writer -- ACTION/ADVENTURE

Hello Jan, Thanks again for the insights; I am learning so much from these lessons. I haven't written, nor read, many action/adventure stories. I think my entry for the Checkout topic might be my closest attempt: "Life in the 'Centre of Death'" http://www.faithwriters.com/wc-article-level3-previous....

Re: Be a Better Writer--CONTEMPORARY FICTION

Hi Jan, I was just poking a bit of fun :-) I have tried one of Picoult's books. I made it to page 3! ;-) My favourite author is Ireland's Maeve Binchey. Sadly, she passed away last year. I'm not sure if her novels would be classed as Contemporary Fiction or Chick Lit? They are mostly uplifting, with...

Re: Be a Better Writer--CONTEMPORARY FICTION

Hi Jan, Thanks for the writing tips/lessons. Personally, I would rather read the phone book than a Jodi Picoult book; ugh, all that reality and, you know, "real life stuff". Give me fluffy chick lit anyday! ;-) Seriously, though, I will give it a go. Hey, I might surprise myself ;-) Blessings, Helen...

Re: Be a Better Writer--MEMOIR AND 1ST PERSON NARRATIVE

JayDavidKing, I read your vulture entry. And I read the comments. Wow, you really annoyed a lot of people! Me? No way! I loved the vulture reference! I know, as Christians we would never devour another's story of heartache and tragedy, right? Perhaps not intentionally, but I still believe that we ar...

Re: 2012 Page Turner Entry Tally

I had nothing . . . and then an idea which led to . . . zilch! So I kept on praying . . . :) and praying . . . :? and praying . . . :x AND PRAYING!! :cry: Finally, with about 1 week to go, God gave me something! But that just seems to be the way He works with me; maybe it's so I don't claim the idea...
