Hi, would you be interested in participating in a blog hop on writing. If so, let me know. You would have to answer 10 questions, link to the person (me) who invited you and link to 4 or 5 others you'd like to invite. Here are the questions:
What is the working title of your current project?
Where did the idea come from for the poject?
What genre is it?
Who would play your characters in a movie?
Write a one-sentence synopsis of the project?
Will you self-publish or go through an agent?
HOw long did it take to write the first draft?
What other books/stories are similar?
Who or what inspired you to write this?
What else about your story might pique readers' interests?
Anne I'm guest-editing an anthology on the widowhood experience. I was so touched by the story about your grandmother's long lost love. I would love for you to submit it, perhaps with a couple of paragraphs about his being a kind of widower. I'm not sure exactly what you'd need to say, but something that would link it to the subject matter. Check out information on the anthology at www.silverboomerbooks.com and click on Call for Submissions. Let me know what you think. TZ

She's coping by treating it as just another extraordinary event in a series of extraordinary events of her life...the Chanel gown, the Champagne casket. Probably dead wrong about her, huh? Ah, well. Very enjoyable. Must have more Maddy.
I so appreciate that you took the time to read the post and comment. I find blogging without anyone's notice much like trying to sweep the ocean back with a broom...disheartening! The very fact that you made a comment created sunshine for me!
I totally agree that the techie stuff demanding a level of expertise to simply blog is quite over the top making me feel as if I spend a lot of time gasping for oxygen--much like hyperventiling! But I will say I now have quite a tool box filled with skills I never in my wildest dreams knew existed let alone expected to achieve!
"Today I invited a few friends who are artists and many who write to join SheWrites and our group. Feel free to do the same with your friends. It is nice to see my local friends posting on She Writes!"
"Jacky - your dilemma is one many know well, obviously. For myself, I liken the construction of a plot & characters with two metaphors; let's call them A and 2.
A: imagine a chess game, one in which you must construct each move by both…"
