I’ve posted a short “end of year” summary over on my author site. All-in-all, it’s been a good year for me as a writer. One book and two new short stories published. Not too bad. I hope everyone has a good holiday season and a terrific new year. Thanks for following this eclectic little blog.
Over on my author blog today I’ve posted NaNoWriMo Hints for Success. Hope you find some of my hints helpful. Good luck to all the WriMos this year!
The final part of “The Ice Cream Castle” is up on Wattpad! This is a ghost story I’ve been posting one part per day this week. The story is now complete. Response to the story has been great; it’s not only ranked, it’s already surpassed my other ranked story…and that was before I published the final section today! Thanks so much to all who have been reading along all this week as I’ve posted the sections of “The Ice Cream Castle”! Next Friday I’ll post a brand new ghost story that I’ve just finished. Follow me on Wattpad for more fiction!
blinking cursor. classic. iconic. symbol of a writer thinking. the possibilities of a blank screen waiting to be filled. who determines the rate of blinking? is there a standard rate? the rhythm of the blinking cursor looks exactly right. is that because it’s the exact timing that I’m used to seeing. or does it look and feel right because there is something inherently soothing, reassuring, encouraging in that periodicity? i like watching it while I think. something happens in my creative mind with every blink.
I’ve changed the theme to one with a more fun look (Scratchpad), which supports a lot of variety in the way posts look when using different post formats. I’m hoping this will encourage me to do more short varied posts. I’ve gone back a little ways, changing the post format for some of the more recent post so visitors will see the change right away.
