i have mine finished and ready to roll.. just waiting on nom
dont want to give him the edge
btw.. i typed mine out and my comp died to find out i had to rewrite it.. good thing all my stories r memorized as i write them
dang, good memory then. I loose shit sometimes and am completely lost and have to start over...using new word combos to express the same mood. A BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!
how long, honestly, do you work on a verse ?
I useally spend at LEAST 3-4 hours....mostly more though. Just a micro edit process and a waste of time really, but that's theonly way I know. heh.
well it all really depends, i have written 64 bar's in 60 minutes and spent no time editing and did alright and spent 2 hours on 64 bar's and 3 hours on editting and it turned out horrible.. but that's possible b.c editting in 14 pic's is timne consuming hahaha..*if u knew of the incedent you'll laugh other wise itll go over ur head.
for example i had the gist of this story done in 20 minutes.. but the time i took into thinking it and becoming it and living it, well that took me a day and a night of sleep..
i have to live the story mentally before i write it
the more i spend in that world the more detail i bring
yeah that's how i usually always do it... it's kinda why i never write in first person if my character is a girl... scared to go down that road lol
I typically spend 2- 4 hours on a verse, usually in one sitting. most of that time is research. i should revise more.
I use a site called Formalogy to choose a random number. Then whatever that number is I pick the corresponding topic or topics.
lol how did this become a symposium??
I think its incredible that Lyrical remembers his verses like that. and the whole living with the story is very true and effective
haha, well, the latest i'll post is about 9 hours before it's due or something due to the time difference.
I got that idea "Do Not Set Yourself on Fire" from my job.
I'm a Safety Coordinator for a construction site. And I bought some posters and hung them up on the job site that read, "Do Not Set Yourself on Fire, It's just a Safety Suggestion"
Pretty cool huh?
hey shadow, i know how you feel my computer shit it's self and i lost over half of my verse, i wanted to cry, i was so pissed off and i just went blank, but i got it finished and i posted it.
but to everyone else whats the deal with posting at the last minute, its crappy when you do it like that, im on the other side of the world and check in when i can, but no post. i didnt get to vote on every1's last week cause of stupid computer and people posting at the last minute..
fairy I want to always post early...asap. but this week the only tme I have to write unfortainatly is today...I hear you though.
Hope your PC gets well soon
fairy trust me i want to post my verse bad, but I know for a fact if i do, it'll give nom leverage, to make his verse better.. but your gripe fairy is very understandable. i'd post mine now if Nom posted his now. or at least Right after mine.. he's good enough to see what i wrote and make something better..
haha, i honestly don't read what someones posted until after i post.
nom, how old are you and what do you do for a living ? I'm curious.
24 and a barman.
Ah, I now understand. You observe the world around you in the bar setting and that gives you a platform to write from. Is this correct ?
I know you wouldn't do that tho Nom.. haha
I would tho!
oh and BTW...
if peep's didn't know
i grant u the right to vote for him..
