November 3rd question: What's harder to do, coming up with your book title or writing the blurb?

Sometimes I know the title of a WIP right away, and other times, it comes to me as I write the story. The title of Precious Atonement came from a line in the book.

Regardless, the blurb takes much more effort. I have to consider the overall message, tone and key words, and then, I have to polish till it shines. 

Thanks for visiting.

It's also a venue for offering  support, both in the form of comments and positive posts. Writers of all kinds are welcome.

4th Anniversary of FULL DARK

 Can you believe it's been 4 years?

If you're looking for a Halloween read, this is it. And the content is PG-13, so you can enjoy it with your school-age kids.


What happens in the dark will come to light.
 
FULL DARK is a benefit anthology. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Gary Sinise Foundation, an organization that does many wonderful things for our country's active military, its veterans, and the countless first responders who sacrifice so much to keep us safe.

October 6 question - In your writing, where do you draw the line, with either topics or language?

Great question! I write Western Historical Romance, so this is definitely a consideration for me.

Random fact... When searching for the September question to build this post, I noticed that IWSG also stands for Integrated Waste Solutions Group. I guess that means we either polish up our manuscripts, or they get flushed. LOL

September question: How do you define success as a writer? Is it holding your book in your hand? Having a short story published? Making a certain amount of income from your writing?

August question - What is your favorite writing craft book? Think of a book that every time you read it you learn something or you are inspired to write or try the new technique. And why?

I'm gonna be a real rebel this month.

June 2nd question - For how long do you shelve your first draft, before reading it and re-drafting? Is this dependent on your writing experience and the number of stories/books under your belt?
