I’m on the last two chapters of my W-I-P and approaching the best and worst of times: rewrites and line edits. I love to play with words - twisting, turning, beating them into shape. I should have been a massage therapist! Going back through a book to enrich scenes is my favorite part of writing. It’s like being on the playground, free to explore and run and work off energy . . . until the playground monitor comes along to remind you of the rules. Rules? . . . There are no stinkin’ rules in having fun! But there they are - those bullies - forcing order into the free range chaos of imagination. Oxford commas, participles waiting to be undangled. Affect . . . effect. My brain hurts! I need to go back to grammar school . . .
I always anticipate good things to come in May (birthday month, after all!) This one starts off with an AWESOME sale on the first two books in my Touched by Midnightvampire romance series! From May 1 to May 15, book 1: MIDNIGHT KISS will be available through all outlets for $0.99 and MIDNIGHT TEMPTATION, book 2, will be $1.99! This is better than getting two books for one and a fab opportunity to sink your teeth into the series and chew your way up to MIDNIGHT SHADOWS which will be out at the end of the month.
Back to work. This book isn’t going to write . . . or edit itself.
How’s your writing life going?
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
Posting: The first Wednesday of every month is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Post your thoughts on your own blog. Talk about your doubts and the fears you have conquered. Discuss your struggles and triumphs. Offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling. Visit others in the group and connect with your fellow writer - aim for a dozen new people each time.
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
