Let's Write!

Wednesday, July 17, 2019

One of my 'side projects' has been my Hemingway project. Doing some research, I came across this quote. I'm not claiming to be any of the below, but I know what he is saying. The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for... Sign in to see full entry.

To those who use Grammarly, be aware that (at least with the premium edition) there has been a dramatic upgrade. Due largely to pressure from Kindlepreneur, an Amazon supported company with its editing software product ProWritingAid, Grammarly has stepped up its game as well. At no extra charge....

I'm working both 'behind' the cancer story and 'ahead' of it, leaving me to work late at night to keep the forward motion of the story. In tonights posting, I have just introduced a 'grief counselor' into the mix. Some hospitals have them and some don't. One of the bigger hospitals where I worked... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm making good progress in my 'cancer' story. For those who are getting it via email, an updated version will go out about six to seven PM EST. Yesterday or the day before, I thought I had found a download for creating e-book covers and for paperbacks. In a way I was right, but it isn't... Sign in to see full entry.

This is both an update and a tip for those who write and then want to publish something ASAP. I want to get this one out before summer simply because I think it will sell. I've also been invited to a special program to give incentives for sales to the UK. I write for myself, but as I get older, I... Sign in to see full entry.

My Advice To You

This was something I posted over on Twitter in response to giving club 'newbies' advice on how to write. It's been how I've been doing this since about 2002 when I got 'serious' about my writing. I hope it helps you. Sign in to see full entry.

Sometimes something happens that shakes everything up. You can whine and cry about it, or you can put it to use. Without a doubt, most of you that read me here know that yesterday was a bad day for me. It set me back for a few hours, but out of those hours a new story has emerged. I told you about...

Over in my 'cancer' story, things will pick up for me for a few entries as we enter the phase of 'explanation and what is to follow.' I'm familiar with this phase as a 'caregiver' and a nurse, so it will flow better and faster. I frequently attempted to explain things to people in shock on a third... Sign in to see full entry.

As I work on 'Daddy Has Cancer,' and work the words I want to use between the first conversation that the mother has with her son about the subject, I recalled a conversation I had with my grandson Johnny when he was about eight. The conversation about 'parental love' came up, and Johnny couldn't... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm working on my 'Cancer' story, and while I haven't made a post on it in a day or two, I have advanced it. Writing about cold-hearted killers is one thing, but writing about a little boy that is going to lose a father from the viewpoint of that little boy is quite another. I need to check every...
