On Writing

Thursday, June 23, 2022

I've put out auditions for a 13,500-word 'erotica' story Lisa wrote. It's nothing that would be posted here, but it seems to be selling well on Amazon under a pen name, so we are taking it to Audible. I helped her set up the audition yesterday. The process has changed a little, but we figured it out... Sign in to see full entry.

An Offer

As I just posted on my everyday patter blog, I have discovered there is a huge shift in reading styles. The writing group I am affiliated with #FreshInkGroup tells us the new trend is anthology shorts of 25,000 to 50,000 combined words and poetry collections of 90 to 125 pages. I know there are...

I have a short story (13,500 words) I wrote back in 2009 I decided to post to Amazon Kindle. It wasn't anything weird or special, but I wanted to get it out there. For reasons I don't understand, Amazon is giving me static about publishing it. It's been 'IN REVIEW' for ten days, and this morning, it... Sign in to see full entry.

Vella Revisited

Yikes. I just saw it has been over three weeks since I made a post here. I apologize about that, but... well, 'circumstances.'

Here's a dumb question. What kind of story do you like to read? Mystery? If so, what kind of mystery? Poetry? I'm trying to figure out a way to expand my normal stuff. Your suggestions might lead to a story in your favorite genre! I'm working on some things I have had to shelve for the last three... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm going to do a one-time 'How to use Twitter' post. I'd gladly do more if you are interested. Twitter is a vast place, so to attract the attention of the audience you want, you have to know the signals they call 'Hashtags.' There are THOUSANDS of them, so you have to figure out whose attention you... Sign in to see full entry.

Using Twitter

I've started a new Vella story from a dystopian story I have started, stopped, started, stopped, started, and stopped about a dozen times. I finally came up with the hook, so as I work on it, I will attempt to haul in a few extra dimes doing so. My current three have made me $453 last month. Of... Sign in to see full entry.

Just an update on my change in grammar editor. I've gone from using Grammarly and Pro Writing Aid to only using PWA. It seems to be a much better interface and doesn't offer me possibilities that completely change the intention of the sentence. I'd like to think I'm growing as a writer when I begin...

Some Background Info

This post was made elsewhere yesterday, but it gives you a peek into the background of my writing. *********** I've been very busy today, doing things that need to be done. I just sat down to do some re-editing on my first big selling story and found a very emotional part where my wife (then... Sign in to see full entry.
