Free Offer: I’ve Done It!

12 Dec

The long-promised offer of a collection of my posts about writing is finally ready! Unlike the esteemed Brinda Berry, techie extraordinaire, I had to get some help to figure out exactly how to do this download so that readers could easily click and download. My computer guru son helped me so that now I can help you.

You can also click on the link to the right of my page, if that is easier. Yay! Yet another WordPress puzzle solved.

    Got mine, too. Thanks. Good stuff in here. Loved the “Boredom must be avoided at all costs” and “Don’t confuse the reader.” I think sometimes we get “muddled in the middle” and bored with our writing and it shows through. The trick is to keep it fresh and exciting every day. Not always easy but definitely necessary.

    I outline only what’s necessary for the chapter and let the rest work itself in. I’m not quite a “pantser”, but I don’t outline myself too tightly. I need the stepping stones, but nothing else. I trust that my characters know where they’re going, which sometimes leaves me a bit breathless. So far, they haven’t failed me.

    Most of all, write every day that you can and set word count goals. That helps me stay focused.

    Good luck on the new work in progress. Looking forward to hearing more about it.

      I like your way of outlining. I, too, like to see where the characters take me. I am always amazed at how little I get done each day compared to how much I have in my mind. Getting this download done was a big step for me as I’ve been promising it for a couple of months. Unfortunately once I crossed this off my list, I got another idea of something to add to it. The list just gets longer and perhaps that’s good. Shows my brain is still working. Thanks for your excellent feedback, habisha!

      Thanks, Janna. I thought it would be more convenient for readers, especially new ones, and give me an opportunity to learn how to format a download book. And it worked!

    You are wonderful to name me as such. The techie admiration is certainly mutual. I can’t stay and chat. I’m downloading your book!

      I’m sure you could write a much longer one, Brinda. Will that be happening any time soon with all your other writing adventures taking place?
