At last, the end of the week. By far, this has been the most exciting week on the blog since I started, thanks to being featured on Freshly Pressed. A terrific thank you again goes to WordPress editor Joy who selected me for this chance of a lifetime. Also a big thanks goes out to all of you, my readers, who stopped by in droves to check things out around here. I have loved all the comments and feedback and I hope to live up to expectations.
In manuscript land I’m plowing through a rewrite. Weeks ago I made a monumental change to the opening chapter, changing some key elements. The new opening chapter improves the story and creates relationships between characters which are vital to the climax. Now I must recreate the following chapters to match. The process has been slow and frustrating – what I wouldn’t give for a few extra hours in the day when my children aren’t hanging from my arms and stealing my mouse!
Here is the list of this week’s blog posts:
Quickly Quotable #10 – A favorite from Dead Poets Society
Everyone’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen) – Baz Luhrman’s hit single music video
Flash Fiction in your Box – Everyday! – Featured resource, EverydayFiction.com
The Evil Adverb – This week’s grammar lesson [Featured on Freshly Pressed!]
Who is your Audience? – A discussion on writing for the world vs writing for oneself
Fun Friday: Mistranslated Advertising #2 – A chance to laugh!
I hope everyone has a marvelous weekend. Mine’s slated to be busy as always, with projects in the yard and promises to keep, not to mention logging a few more hours on the manuscript.
