Question number 5 of The Cube – A Writing exercise;

What kind of feelings does the item awakens within you? 

The leaf makes me feel sad, as a dreamer, nostalgic, and romantic. I feel creative and full of fantasy thanks to all the pictures I get in my head when thinking about the leaf. It makes me feel free, without any boundaries. It gives me a small feeling of hope.

Discussion: What kind of feeling do your stories create when people read them? Are they sad, happy, horrifying, amusing, surprising or anything else? What? What kind of feeling do you want to give your readers? In what way can you create more different kinds of feeling in one single story? What are your characters feeling, and what do they make the reader feel? In what way can you make them represent a broader band of feelings?

  2. Oops, got away from me—case in point about our earlier talk on editing. Comment was supposed to say, “Good writing advice and I am partial of leaves.”

    • Oh, I thought it was me and my lack of english that was the problem again 🙂
      I know how that is, the computer has its own life, as if it would be a character in a writers life. Thanks anyway for your kind comments, and Happy Reading! Also feel free to join my competition if you would like (Win a Signed Book).

  4. hey Maggie!
    well at first when i joined wordpress i had just one intension and that was, “i will write what my heart wants me to,whether good or bad,doesn’t matter…i will just open up my heart and spill-out eveything and anything thats inside”, As i told you before,”i feel sad sometimes(when i’m like all alone), happy when i see people are liking it(you know that gives you confident,like okay atleast someone noticed that i can even write!), horrifying when people just ignore(by this i mean ‘certain’ people for whom i particularly write the post!), amusing when i get hits(now thats natural), surprising-when i see followers(by far,i think is okay,but ‘followers’ are way too much for me)!”
    you know sometimes you cannot just say things that you really wanna say,..!
    note-please dont mind for my bad english,you know im an Indian and we usually speak ‘Hindi’…so…
    anyway i’ll definately be looking forward for the competion as you mentioned,thanks a lot for taking out time for me maggie! goodnight!!!
