So, with the new year comes a new plan of action for my blog. First off, more consistent posts (ha, yes, I know you’ve heard it before, but I really mean it this time – really!). For serious, I’m talking Monday, Wednesday, and Friday every week. Also, I’ll have specific types of posts for each day, as in:
Mondays, I’m going to post about the writing process itself, including the editorial process. Wednesdays, I’ll dedicate to topics on publishing and marketing. Fridays, I’ll post writing exercises and brainstorming tools.
Today, I’m cheating by posting this. However, I’m delving deeply into the big bad world of marketing my book now, and this Wednesday, I’ll have a few words to say about query letters and/or writing synopses for the purpose of snaring an agent. Friday’s post will be about different methods of conveying the emotions of a character, since I had an interesting conversation about that last night.
“Oh, HONey!” Angelina dropped the Happy Anniversary box of matching dish cloths and dish towels and glared at her husband. “How THOUGHTful!” She kicked the box across the room. “You SHOULDn’t have!”
As she slapped him silly, Rudolpho noted to himself that, no, he shouldn’t have. He really, really shouldn’t have.
LOL! Love it!
