I literally go over that.  Not sure if it makes me a wimp.

It depends what violence you are reading, Child's violence is wimpish.

Are you a fan of Stephen?

I'll be honest - I only watch the movies as I prefer reading non-fiction. So that leaves me with the movies only. Having said that, I must confess I did not find The Shining scary at all. Carrie was far better. The Dead Zone was absolutely a masterpiece. So yea, a big fan of King.

What about 'Pet Sematary' or 'Misery', have you seen those?

Oh and Misery was extremely creepy. Great writing there.

I'd prefer no violence - but Reacher (Child's violence) is vindicated - he's not a thug for the sake of it and rights a lot of wrongs - I'm all for that,  Very Happy

I just talked about Misery but Pet Sematary I have yet to see. But let's not forget The Shawshank Redemption, the best of all. Absolute masterpiece.

Thank you Linda. I am disciplining myself strictly, I have to write 2,000 words a day or I think I've failed.

Don't think like that, otherwise you are setting yourself up for failure.

There will be days you can write a lot, and when that happens just run with it. There will be other days you can't be bothered, or it's just not clicking. It's normal.

I like your new beginning.

I'm that serious about this novel and its success, that I would hire someone to hold me at gunpoint everyday until I finished it.

Trust me. There will be days you might have to do that.

I admire your enthusiasm, and you should definitely run with that. Who knows where it will take you?

I am too moody to write though I really like the idea of it and also, my English isn’t perfect and I don’t have a very strong vocabulary.   


I feel you are very good with words, Emma. Smile
