I can email it to you and you can make comments. It's quite long though so you can read it whenever you have time. Generally speaking though the story is supposed to be about how a person sees what they want to see. I can let you edit it and you can write your comments in red. Does that make sense? Thank btw

That will work, that’s actually how my last book was edited :)













I’ve given up trying to correct people.

Megan. It’s not hard to spell.

Thomas not Thompson

My name is Tristan. To most people this means spelling or hearing it as Tristian, Tristram, Christian, Trisham(????).

People could NOT get my legal name spelled correctly, and forget about my last name. I usually just quip “it’s Polish for ‘hey look, there’s a Jew’”

I have to spell my first and last name for people all the time.

No one in the U.S. can pronounce a norwegian last name as it’s proper norwegian pronunciation. So sort of.

It’s not that fuckin hard to say Demetria

I’ve shortened my name because apparently my full name is too hard

Ryo, don’t say Rye-O, it’s Ree-O.

-w-” Everytime, dangit.


not stee-ger-wold

Not often, but every once in a while I’ll get something in the mail for Mr. Clupp. Priceless.

I've haven't written for over a year. Every time I want to or feel like it, I talk myself out of it; 'I'll do it later' or 'I'm not in right mood to write' or 'my heart isn't in it'... How do you help yourself get that kick start to writing again? I miss it so much but can't bring myself to jump back into it!! :(


Try not to think so much. I know it’s easier said than done, but here are some tips;

  • Put on your favourite movie, one you’ve seen a million times.
  • Or put on an old tv show; don’t pressure yourself with silence.
  • Grap a notebook and pen.
  • Put pen to paper and write a word, any word.
  • You can even start out with a doodle if you like.
  • Don’t think about writing a story, just write anything.
  • Write about the weather, what you had for breakfast, a dream you had, anything at all. Write something that means nothing.
  • Write for five minutes, then leave it.
  • Tomorrow, write for ten minutes.
  • Increase it each day.
  • I promise you, that sooner or later, a character, a story idea, a scene, something, will come to you and ask to be written.
  • But don’t pressure yourself.
  • You don’t need to write an entire novel on day one.
  • Write snippets, write sketches, write things you’ll never finish.
  • Don’t pressure yourself.
  • Allow yourself to write rubbish.
  • And in between the writing, read, read, read, read, read.
  • Be brave. I know you can do it.
