Short post today! Just three days of challenge responses to share with you, but you'll also be getting the current incarnation of chapter one of "Over Land & Under Stone" in this batch. I would love, truly I'm craving, some feedback on this monster. It's in dire need of revision and while I'm certain of several places to start my story and I know where I'd like it to end, that work could go so much more smoothly with a little feedback from beta readers. You can comment here, or on Wattpad where you can actually read more of the story in its current revision. (I think I'm on the fourth one now.) Read on to see the challenge responses!
Happy Friday to you, Readers! A lot of challenges hit me this week, not all of them to do with writing. But I've persevered. Sometimes you just have to keep going no matter what's coming against you. For instance, as I type this, I'm super groggy. Just didn't sleep well last night so I'm fighting through it to keep up with my Camp Nano goal. We're nearing the end of April and I'm so close to meeting my goal I can taste it! Read on to see more on the past few day's writing challenge responses and where I am right now at Camp Nano.
Thank you so much for joining us for the final portion of my interview with C.H. Knyght. (If you missed the first three parts, you can read them here, here, and here.) More than just a fantasy author, she's a talented artist, as well. Today, I wanted to share our discussion of her adventures in art and how she incorporates it into her writing life. Read on!
One thing I've been forced to do more often is go live during these challenges. <sigh> I don't like going live. I don't feel comfortable at all on film. What I do like is working with the editing features on my S10+. (They did not pay me to say that, btw...I just enjoy editing films and photos alike. The creative process is great fun. Anyway, I hope you'll get a chance to see the video on IG. If not, keep following for updates on when those videos might be uploaded to YouTube. I intend to upload all my IG Lives to YouTube. I just don't know when my internet signal will be strong enough that it doesn't take all night and then fail anyway. <sigh> On with the challenge responses!!
April has been such a crazy month and I'm not sure whether I'm coming or going. Always expect the unexpected, folks...scroll to the bottom of the post for a funny video on that topic. On with the challenges!
Welcome back for part three of my interview with C.H. Knyght, author of the fantasy series "The Mother's Realm" and creator of a wonderful Character Development Workbook series. It's the latter we'll be talking about today and believe me, fellow authors, you do not want to miss this one!
I just realized I needed new ways to title series posts. I do far too many writing challenges to not have a better titling system in place. It's the same for my Indie Author Interviews. I'm thinking of calling those "The Independents" in general. I may also create a separate page for them to be shared. Though if I do that, I will possibly end up creating more work for myself... Decisions, decisions!
Anyway, read on for the challenge responses.
Finally! I'm able to get caught up with these writing challenge responses. I hope you enjoyed Wednesday's author interview. If you haven't read any of the interview yet, click here to check out part one, and here to check out part two. On with the challenge responses!
Welcome back for part two of my interview with C.H. Knyght. If you missed last week's post, you can find that here. This week, I'm also happy to share with you my book review of the second book in her series 'The Mother', Nightvision: Midnight Sands. Read on to check it out!
I need a vacation! And it looks like it's time. So in lieu of challenge posts, today's post is all fun stuff. The place we're going doesn't have internet access, or it will be very limited. I'm not going to worry about it, though. Everyone needs a break sometimes. So here are some funnies from the interwebz...
