New series for you

New series for you

Today I found an old site, Dragon Writing Prompts. It hasn’t been updated in about a year or so, but there are some really good things on that site to jar the muse. It made me have an idea for a new blog series for you. One of those muse-tweakers (my term for them) was “What do you do when your writer won’t write?” This set me off on a great idea for a blog series for you, dear readers. How about we cover those items that readers ask of writers. Like, WHY haven’t you come out with BOOK X?

Monday, Monday

Monday, Monday

Here we are…another fine Monday we’ve gotten ourselves into. I know what you are thinking. You are thinking oh, come on, it ain’t all that bad. Well, I am here to tell you, it ain’t bad at all. No, really. I didn’t use to feel that way. See here five ways to beat the Monday blahs But now? Now I am okay with a Monday. Well, sometimes. In my world, Monday is a very good day because I usually take it easy. Do some social media work, promote some stuff, post a blog, read a bit, clean the house, and

Writing, a business you say?

But, no, not business writing! Here I am again, writing on my blog for the third time this week. What is WRONG with me???? (I think it is insomnia, really) But I am committed to putting out some new content this year. That includes blogging, books, etc. So, hang with me for a minute.

They are turning out books on regular release dates, marketing (which really means spending money they haven’t made yet) and promoting their work

It’s me again, revisions

Once again, I grace the hallowed halls of your social media to rant about the perils of line edits and revisions. Sorry if this does NOT interest you. Keep scrolling in that case. I will be back with silliness on another post. For now, though, I am feeling very anxious. Not about Covid-19, no. I got over that in the second or third week of quarantine. No, I am feeling a nausea in my belly about revisions. This book already has 351 single-spaced pages, over 92k in word count. (when I make it double-spaced OY VEY!) it has 10,732 lines.

Line Edit News! NEWS!

Okay, now that I have done my newsboys gig, let’s get to it. Life at the house of line edits… Lines, tigers, edits, oh my! I have not been posting much due to work/life/coronavirus stuff. Yes, we all have been being good little humans and quarantining ourselves. Not that I mind. Really. I have discovered that I am quite the homebody/loner. Didn’t know that about myself. But I am and so there, I’ve said it. But what’s the news you ask? Well, I’m glad you helped me de-digress. So, I have been deep into that dark abyss called LINE EDITS.
