HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Well I do hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season- whatever you may celebrate! Mine was lovely and stressful. GRIN. Tonight is New Years Eve, so I figure it is a great time to start setting our New Years goals for writing. That’s right, more goal setting and homework. You may complete it tomorrow or next week or never, so worry not and go party to your hearts content tonight. Safely. But when you feel up to it and decide you want to be a writer again, start setting goals for the year 2014! If you write it down and hang it up in your writing space, you’ll be more inclined to work on it!

My writing space is everywhere, so I’ll be hanging mine up over my face. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Query Letters and Other Horror Stories

Standard

If you’ve never written one, you just don’t know. There are two types of writers in this category.

1: You’re a newbie and a query letter isn’t scary because you don’t know what it entails.

2. Everyone else.

A query letter is not a mere question or pleading; “Please sign me!!” Writing a query is harder than writing a book, and we all know how I feel about THAT subject. Capturing the attention of an agent who receives hundreds of queries a day is not just a honed skill, it is a refined art, or a magic trick…or hell, even a full blown miracle at work which means if you do it three times successfully you get to be sainted. …But no pressure…evil grin.

You know I’ll offer help so not boo’s from the gallery. Check out the link below.

Tis The Season…To Freeze To Death.

Merry Christmas everyone. Tis’ the season… to freeze to death. I don’t understand it. When did we sign on for arctic temperatures clear across the country? I don’t recall contributing to this vote. I could say enough already, but this gives me an opportunity to encourage you all to get writing! You can’t go outside. Your eyeballs will freeze in their sockets and fall out and shatter on the ground and no one wants to clean that up. So start a warm cozy fire, curl up with your hard and angular keyboard and start the greatest novel ever written…no pressure…
