Check out the details of the annual IWSG Anthology Contest Today!
For me IWSG is a place to hold hands with other authors who are waiting to hear some news about their books:
- Will the agent of my dreams like what I’ve sent?
- Is the publisher going to send a contract sometime this century?
- Is my Indie book edited and formatted properly or did I screw up again?
- Will anyone buy my book while I’m still alive?
- Will anyone read my book?
- Where are those reviews?
If any of these questions have every bugged you as a writer, SIGN UP HERE and let’s hold hands. Excuse the bones. I’ve lost a bit of weight during my book launch this summer.
September 7 Question: How do you find the time to write in your busy day?
When I think of something–no matter where I am–I write it down, and when I can get to my computer, I put those ideas into whatever I’m working on. That’s why my manuscripts scare me senseless. There are random notes between scenes. There are images I think I can use to help me describe something or capture the mood of a place or the look of a person. There’s egg salad splats because I ate lunch during an epiphany.
Yesterday during yoga, I had this brilliant thought while I was standing on my hands. Attribute it on blood flow to the brain. So as soon as my hands were free, I wrote that thought down. Last night it became a scene that will go someplace in my book. I’m counting on another handstand to tell me where.
What’s your answer to the September 7th question? I’ll be coming around to read what you have to say.
