News, a Question, and Some Writing Prompts
There's a lot going on in the blog world these days. I can't keep track of it all, can you?
Next week I'll be hosting the Partners in ParanormYA, and I'll be participating in Queendsheena's Sacrifice Blog Hop.
Then I'm joining in on the fun of Jeremy Bates' Halloween Blog Hop.
In November, I'll be participating in I'm Thankful For My Readersblog hop.
And I'm sure there's more in November that I'm probably misplacing/forgetting. Help, anyone?
In December I'll be co-hosting a Hobbit Fest with M Pax. In the next few weeks there will be a button reveal and linky list!
Oh, and you can find an "writer" page for me now on Facebook.
A Question (or two):
So, I'm polishing the last draft of Champion in the Darkness, and I'm taking time each day to learn more about self-pubbing with Kobo, Lulu, Smashwords, and Createspace. Plus, I have some random short stories and poetry already written, just taking up space on my laptop.
Would it be better to focus completely on getting Champion in the Darkness ready for a early 2013 release, or would it be better to put out a "Short Stuff" collection of short works first and then release Champion?
Oh, and I have one other question, which date would be better for a book release: New Year's Day, or President's Day?
Writing prompts can be a much needed warm-up for fiction or poetry writing, or a place to find ideas in the midst of a free-for-all moment on a page. I find them helpful for my writing, and I hope you do too.
