Writing: a little experiment

I just wanted to let you know that I’m trying a little writing experiment. I like to try new things once in a while, and I decided to write another five part story on my webpage. I really enjoyed doing that with Freya’s Story, only I wrote that more like a 5-act play. You know, prologue, conflict, rising action, falling action, denouement. Okay, I wasn’t that good about strictly following the structure, but I sort of did. Anyway, this time, I want to try something different. I’m making each section really short, but my goal is to have the protagonist make a bad decision in every story segment until the end. I’ve never structured a story that way, so I think it might be fun. Well, at least for me. Not so much for Ophelia. But we’ll see. I posted the first part tonight, and I hope to post one part every Friday until it’s done. http://www.judithpostswritingmusings.com/ophelias-story–part-1.html

Hope you like it.

  1. Oh, thanks! I’m glad you liked it. I’m trying 1st person/present tense, too. I haven’t written that way for years. I usually stick to 3rd person/past tense with internal dialogue, but this is more immediate, so I thought it would add to the tone. I keep forgetting and shifting verb tense, though. I’m going to have to concentrate!


  2. Weird timing that I stumbled across your blog…. I’m actually doing a similar writing experiment and writing a short story in four or five parts following story structure guidelines! I’m following your blog now, so we can work in parallel on our experiments! :). Good luck!
