Good morning (or evening as it may be when you read this)! Hope you all had a lovely, fabulous weekend! It's a dreary, rainy Monday where I sit (yippee!!)and I'm just bursting with energy. It could be that I've got a slew of projects lined up and that's fear and trembling, not energy. OR it's the two cups of coffee and three sodas I had yesterday....
A big HELLO and WELCOME to my new followers. Wow! I'm busting at over 110!! Love it! I'm hoping to get my 8 page research paper written by tomorrow so hopefully (fingers crossed and mouth held in just the right position) I'll be wandering by your blogs to say hello come mid-week.
Real quick before I leave creative writer mode (boo) and switch into argumentative writer mode (huzzah):
The A-Z Writing Challenge starts THIS FRIDAY, 01 April! If you haven't signed up yet, I'm sure there's plenty of room. I think there's something like 500+ signed up. Could be more since I checked in. The idea is to post on your blog every day except Sundays throughout the month of April. Each post will be governed by the letter of the alphabet for that day (day 01-A, day 02-B and so on...). I'm toying with a few ideas of how to take on this challenge AND benefit my OTHER April-long project:
Ok, so that's not exactly an "official" challenge. I made it up :D Many of you know that April is ScriptFrenzy month(brought to you by the fabulous people who bring us 30 days of mayhem and chaos with NaNoWriMo every November). If you're a screenwriter, playwright or just fancy pulling out your hair and drinking copious amounts of coffee in the mad dash to a completed script by April 30, then sign up and take the plunge! I'll be spending those hours of hair pulling and coffee guzzling revising my novel. Yes, I have one. Yes, I've been terribly secret about it. Yes, it's the first book in a series. No, that series does not end with the three books I have written. Ugh. Why do I do this to myself?
Question for YOU: Are you participating in either challenges next month? In the process of mad revisions? Have you posted excerpt from your WIP? Do you like it when people do? Am I being too overprotective of my story/characters/insanity by NOT posting excerpts? Tell me! I want to know what YOU want to read.
Oh yeah...the quote:
I learned never to empty the well of my writing, but always to stop when there was still something there in the deep part of the well, and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it.
If a writer knows enough about what he is writing about, he may omit things that he knows. The dignity of movement of an iceberg is due to only one ninth of it being above water.
