Apparently, I have read too many books because one night they started coming back out in strange new combinations. I’ve had to hit the ground running, re-learning how to write a story in a readable way, edit myself, starting a writer’s platform, and learning to navigate the new world of social media. Blogging has become the most liked of my platforms, after being the one of which I was most afraid. Isn’t that always the case?
I don’t have any fiction posted on the blog because I had to take down my fairy tale, The Mayfly Bride, to revise and start submitting to anthologies. Apparently anthologies are a good way to get your name out there as a writer, taking the role magazines used to play, in a bygone era.
You could watch my flailing attempt to start a daily Word Count Goal for the third time. That’s always good for a laugh. Or, there’s the unfinished Low-Budget Writing Program, if you are so inclined. Warning: you get what you pay for.
Some common themes I deal with as a writer are the frustrations on the Writer’s Road, and The Writer as a Mirror to Society. I will try to link up some of those posts as we go along. My most liked post is The Hidden Hero: Tropes and Clichés. Here are a few of my favorites:
I now have my very first publishing credit! Hell Bound Books accepted me into one of their anthologies. Check it out if you love Horror! http://www.hellboundbookspublishing.com/bootleg4.html
I don’t plan on monetizing this blog. It’s just the place I share what I am learning about being a writer. Nothing fancy, just an occasional stroll through my brain. Wipe your feet, please. Non-writers my find it boring.
Gender binary is a flawed social construct, and I prefer to think of myself as human, but I’m used to she/her.
