I trust all you guys are doing well and writing exceptional prose. This past week I have been tweaking the “inciting incident” in my sci-fi story. I basically want it to be tighter, more engaging for the reader. After all that is who we write for isn’t it? In any case once that is done, and it shouldn’t take to long, then I will get on to writing the other plot points. That is the plan regarding how I will do the first draft outline. I hope to have done in the near future.
I also need to get some children’s stories done. I have been checking the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories site and so far no dice. But when it does go live again I will let you guys know about it as it is a wonderful opportunity for unpublished authors like myself to get their careers started.
I have checking resources for possible submissions as well. (Got to spread my wing and fly you know!) And speaking of flying… I had better fly on to my other writing duties. So until next time… William out!
And the weekend is here! Well that would be for most people but for me my Monday is tomorrow. Sitting in my office/second bedroom doing some organizing here. I’m organizing what to submit where he he. At least I’m putting together a submission schedule for contests and magazines. that is my goal for tonight along with the usual writing goals.
I have been checking out the latest Writer’s Market book, looking up the contests and magazines I will be submitting to. I also have an account over at WritersMarkrt.com. So far so good!
Yesterday I added some paragraphs to my sci-Fi story “A Change in Time”. I had some ideas for a scene in the revised new chapter one and so far the idea works! Yeah!
Next week I will be attending and reading at the Wellington library in Wellington, Fla. Now that should be a blast! I will be ready for that!
I have a the new IPad, which is what I using right now to make this post. But there is one thing that bothers me. It’s the up arrow button on the keyboard! Sometimes it won’t highlight when I want to capitalize a word. That can be a downright pain in the ass!
But ever the trooper I am I trudge on to the end! By the way if any of you guys know a good word processor for the IPad please let me know! I sure would appreciate it!
Here is an Ernest Hemingway quote on writing.
In order to write about life, you must first live it!
Ernest Hemingway — American Author
Well I have to go for now so until next time…William out!
“The Nighttime Novelist” by Joseph Bates and “Fill in the Blank Plotting” by Linda George. The first helps any future potential author from idea creating to proof reading of manuscript. The second book by Linda George is a guide to outling your novel. Both are quite good.
