And there you have it, Folks!
This post is going to be what we call a “Twofer,” or two posts for the price of one! Since I’ve made Sunday my regular #ReblogAlert day for both Story Empire and Smorgasbord, I realized I could do them in the same post, rather than one in the morning and one in the afternoon, thus giving each of them all-day long exposure. Great idea, huh? (Yeah, I know. Sometimes I’m slow, but I usually get there eventually! 😀 ) So, here you go!
Another great series of posts from the gang at Story Empire. You’ll definitely want to take a look, if you haven’t already done so.
MONDAY: John W. Howell’s post Indicators During a Writing Session That It Is Not the Best Work is a simple, yet very helpful way to help authors understand why their work might not be as good as it should be. Check out John’s post HERE.
WEDNESDAY: Joan Hall wraps up her terrific series on developing different types of characters with Character Types: The Helper. You can read Joan’s post HERE.
FRIDAY: Staci Troilo’s post, Do’s and Don’ts of Story Beginnings, is another one you won’t want to miss! Learn more on this from Staci HERE.

I had planned to do a catch-up of all of Sally’s posts I missed while recovering from COVID, but I realized it would be a nearly impossible task, so I’m starting anew from this past week. As most of you know, it’s ALWAYS worth a trip to over to Sally’s place to scroll through her weekly posts. SO much to check out, and even if you typically follow along daily, there may be some pretty cool things you’ve missed. So here’s your chance to see what went on on Smorgasbord last week!
