Nanowrimo Check In

How is everyone's Nanowrimo going? Getting your words in? Hopelessly behind? Already done? (Insane, I know, but I know people who can finish in two weeks! Yes, I hate them, too.) I'm sitting just about where I want to be, with a couple of extra days in the bag in case I need them later.… Continue reading Nanowrimo Check In

The Writing Rituals tag

I'm stealing this one from youtube. I wasn't really tagged by anyone, but I originally saw it in this video: When do you write (time of day/day of week)? I write 6-7 days a week. If I happen to have down time at work, I might squeeze in 500 words or so, otherwise I'll write… Continue reading The Writing Rituals tag

Instead of one of the multitude of events like #Pitchwars or #Pitmad geared at gaining an agent, #ShoreIndie, started by Sione Aeschliman (@writelearndream) is aimed at helping… Continue reading #ShoreIndie 2017–Because 140 Characters are Not Enough
