If your life was a novel, what would the title be? And how would the novel of your life start?
Mine might be called: "The Girl Who Knew Too Much" The first few lines to mine might be:
"The young girl, mature beyond her years, lived in the future as though it were a memory from her past. Always running, arriving before she was ready. Grace was the anchor she sought--to surrender to what is and not what ought to be. This was the ease and flow she desired...
I think my working title would be "There and Back." Maybe I would reconsider and title it; The Boy Who Knew Too Little. I contemplate it would commence with this sentence...
As he awakened from his comatose state; he looked to his aine-true-love, and whispered, "Is it ok if I go back!"
Ooooo! I like it. I'm totally intrigued...so...I must ask...where did you go?
Dear Seek-n -Find,
I went to the other-side...
I think we should converse! I'm about 1/3 way through a book I'm writing about that very topic. Please, if you are willing, let me know if you'd like to share any details. :-) I'm quite curious!
Absolutely, I would love to share my experience and insight with you. If I could (only) re-locate a hub I authored titled, There and Back part 2 a couple of years ago it would be facilitating...
I'll look for it--thank you!!! Can't wait to read it.
Mine would probably "Yellow House On the Hill"
It would probably start something like, "Once upon a time, a girl with huge feet came into the world. Unimpressed with the cold November day, she spared the dyslexic doctor a half hearted whine, and promptly demanded a good swaddling."
:-) I like it! I can tell the novel would be very entertaining to read. I hope these beginnings turn into stories! I'd love to read them. You've got my attention...let me know should you write more!
Thank you! I'll let you know if I end up writing a memoir or something of the like.
Desiderata: Things Desired.
I have no idea how it would start except to say - oh this will be boring.
Great title---but oh no! Nobody's story can be boring. There is too much depth inside each person--too much worth. Even if a life is barraged in mundane,its one's "essence" that creates excitement. In movies, the characters matter more than plot!
I would probably call mine: Addicted to life
Opening few lines:
I was born. The circumstances surrounding this event are mysterious but suffice it to say, the result was me. For reasons undisclosed my birth mother handed me over to a pair of people with better sense and more money than herself. Thus was my adoption secured.
Title : "In the quest...Lies my glee"
Starts like " "One more morning...one more day...more opportunities coming my way...."...As I take the first sip of my coffee...I look forward to an energy that fills me up for the journey ahead.Consequences and destinations are the perks..but it's the quest for making the choices that keeps me going for the perks ahead ....Let's embrace the climb until we reach the top....for it's the memories we live for"
My title would be "My life" as I have already basically started to write a bit about my life on HP in six segments. They do not even scratch the surface.
It would probably begin the way I began Part I in my writings.
Ah--ahead of the game! Great--I'll look forward to taking a look! I had to write an autobiography for grad school--wow was it hard. How do you put your life in a book--confined to space and time? Good job for starting!
Those are my thoughts exactly. I suppose that is what is holding me back, plus the fallout it may cause.
Fun, fun question: I've got several:
"I 'Coulda' Been a Contender" or how about
"My Life - A Warning to Others" or
"It Might Have Been" or
"Dream Interrupted" or
"How to Feel Sorry for Yourself in Three Easy Lessons"
"'To Strive, To Seek, To Find'...Oops"
Geez, I think there's a theme here, huh? So maybe it should be
"Wait, Is There Still Time?"
Opening line: He stood beside the dresser they had sanded and stained together. "Are you going to marry her?" she asked. "We don't have plans yet," and the 'we' shot from his lips into her heart like sharpened dagger. She tugged to pull out the blade, realizing the absurdity of thinking how handsome he looked in his Harringbone tweed jacket as he stood there killing her with "we."
I would have to call mine: "Been there. Done that." Best Regards--Deb
Hmmm, my answer to this question would change daily, or even hourly, but here's what I'm thinking at the moment. I'll call it How Did I End Up Here?!
"Life went in the usual manner - a happy childhood, a morosely depressive and isolated set of teenage years, and an adulthood that wandered in an out of new territories with the dubious certainty of a river. There had been a lot of crazy people, a lot of crazy times, and in the end nothing seemed to make sense. It was a wonderful string of random acts, moments of epiphany, hundreds of obstacles, and even a touch of serendipity. It seemed so unlikely, and yet when the stars lined up there I stood gazing upon the world with wild eyed wonder."
"Here I Am ... Again" -- that would be my title.
My first lines:
The moment I realized that I didn't have a clue what happened to me, my mind jerked forward to the future and the fact that I was going to be in it for better or worse. This time around the carousel I planned on having more say about how things were going to turn out.
Hmm....curious about how things did (or are?) turning out!
Seek-n-Find ... a fascinating lifetime of so many changes and advances in my awareness of myself as a being, a writer, a man and a part of humanity.

Just wondering what people think on this topic, I don't want to know how much you do it, just wondering if anyone thinks there is a standard or rule as to how much!I'm of the thinking that 3-4 times a week is acceptable.

Just wondering...I write poetry because I enjoy it, but I wonder if it's possible to make any money with them. The advice I get is to write "evergree" stuff that will attract readers for a long time. I don't think my poetry is evergreen!
