I always hesitate to mention that I’m writing again, because I’m afraid I might lose my muse.
#Giveaway, Visiting and a Sale
My First Time
I’m writing on the fly, because I’m a busy beaver today. Just wanted to share something exciting.
How did we Meet?
Have you ever met anyone online that became a good friend? If you’re a blogger, I’m guessing you probably have.
Blogging is so much better than facebook and twitter, at least for me. I’m not a fan of expressing myself in 140 characters, nor do I care for tons of propaganda on a wall. I like to interact both in person and through some internet venues like this one. I enjoy having people comment and making friends. I especially like having this safe place where we can go without feeling torn apart, but can find things to relate to one another. Continue reading “Making Friends”
Remember when I wrote a post about how I have found some wonderfully, talented blogging and author friends? I said they are such kind, thoughtful and helpful people.
You may have noticed the re-blogs I’ve posted lately. You see, it all started when I entered Kindle Scout.
The Author’s Network
I’m blessed to have been divinely led to the authors in my network, many of whom I’ve never met in person, others from being involved with the FWA.
Fantasy and Real Life
Marsha A. Moore has featured my Kindle Scout campaign on her page today.
UPDATE: This campaign has ended. Thank you to everyone who helped me out. My Novel, Whit’s End, has now been published. You can find it, HERE.
You wouldn’t think that an author who writes contemporary fiction and one who writes fantasy would make good critique partners.
I’m pleased to say that I’ve been writing and editing again. So, this isn’t going to be one of my longer, philosophical posts. Well, maybe . . . because I seem to get easily distracted. I don’t have A.D.D. in regular life, so what the heck happens when I’m writing?
Am I the only author that does this?
Missed the Mad Men Mania
While we temporarily stayed with my mom, the three of us decided to dive into Netflix. Since none of us had seen Mad Men, we started from the beginning.
Important side note: We’ve only watched the first two seasons, so please no spoilers in the comment section.
At first I was frustrated with the show and wondered how it attracted so many viewers. An important rule in writing, is that the main character needs to be likeable. Who would want to continue reading a book if they hated the main character?
Who is that Pitch at the Gong Show?
Most of you are probably familiar with this television show from the 70’s & 80’s. The Gong Show was the original America’s Got Talent (or Britain’s Got Talent).
To understand Gum Girl, I’ll have to start from the beginning.
The Writing Process Blog Tour
Well, I’m a very late on this post, but I have a good excuse … my husband’s accident.
Some time ago, I was asked by Pete Armetta, an author whom I admire, to participate in The Writing Process Blog Tour. Please take a look at his melodic poetry and thought provoking short stories. Pete Armetta
On to the WRITING PROCESS.
Do People Read?
Really, folks. I’m going to need your input on this one. As an author, I’m finding myself conflicted. Perhaps some of you may have a new perspective to offer, but hear me out first.
Celebration and Contest Giveaways
Author Angel Archer is celebrating the upcoming release of her book with a contest giveaway to win several different gifts. One of them will be a free copy of my memoir anthology, Home Avenue.
Blogging from the Heart
Recently, my writer’s group had a meeting to discuss publishing and marketing. We had one of our cherished members who is an experienced indie author share tips with us. She opened the meeting with what she said was the most important advice to pass along …
The Next Big Thing – Writer’s Blog Journey
One of the eight phenomenal authors in my Writer’s Group, Scott Eder, has given me the honor of tagging me in The Next Big Thing author’s round-robin interview. He writes contemporary fantasy, and his super-heroes are hot, hot, hot … literally. Check out what he’s all about here.
In the tradition of this Writer’s Blog Journey, I will answer the interview questions below about my work in progress. Afterward I will tag another couple of authors.
What is the working title of your book?
Saving Whitaker. However, I’m not settled or sold on this one. I may even ask for suggestions when I get closer to publication. Continue reading “The Next Big Thing – Writer’s Blog Journey”
Writer’s Critique Group
Not been feeling good the past few days. I went to my writer’s critique group meeting on Thursday, and woke up on Friday morning with symptoms from the vertigo I had over the holidays. It makes me unable to do much.
The author’s meeting went well though, and we acquired a new member. Unfortunately, we did have trouble fitting all of us into the cafe, and only half of us showed up.
I hope this setback with the vertigo passes quickly. It’s already been a couple of days.
