Allow Me To Ramble On Once More…

I’m full of cold and DamLOL is consuming my life! Of course DamLOL is only the most recent in my series on procrastinator tools but it’s pretty effective at sucking up hours. Does this mean I delete the app from my ipod? Of course not. I miss out on the funny pictures then and what use would that be?

On the whole I’ve not been that unproductive. I’ve written a couple thousand more words for Darkened Daughter, and the plot-line is really starting to emerge. I also don’t seem to hate everything I wrote. I’m going to count that as a win for my skill as a writer. If I can stand my work then I must be improving right?

Don’t get me wrong. I’m regularly re-reading pieces of flash-fiction and thinking to myself wow, I’m really awesome at this, but for anyone who read this blog at the start you will know that there are chunks of writing I removed because they simply are not good enough to reach the standard anymore. Especially as I started churning out flash fiction more regularly my ability has a written has improved dramatically. The secret? I wrote. A lot! You think this blog is full of words then you should check the poor dying hard-drive of my laptop for all the bits I don’t put up or don’t finish. And as I write more I’ll no doubt improve further. That’s the way it works.

So to all you writers out there reading this, how do you feel about practice makes perfect? (Or at least a hell of a lot better.)

Carol Forrester is a twenty-three year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
