#ReblogAlert – Two Great Posts For Ya!

Running late this week, but believe me, if you haven’t already checked out these two posts from Story Empire, you really should. Both are excellent!

The first is from Staci Troilo’s “Basic Plots” series and deals with Vonnegut’s From Bad to Worse plot line.  This has been a truly informative and helpful series, and you can access Staci’s post HERE.

The second is from John W. Howell and is a tongue-in-cheek look at ten ways to motivate yourself to write. (And I’m pretty sure most of them would actually work, too. Probably. 😀 ) You can access John’s post HERE.

Check ’em out! You’ll be glad you did! 

#ReblogAlert #Sharing

If you haven’t already visited Story Empire today, I highly recommend you swing by and take a look at Craig Boyack’s post wrapping up his series on Expansion Pack: Comedy. Some good ideas in this one, and well worth checking out.  Don’t forget to pass it along so others can take a look too, thanks. And thanks, Craig, for another fun and helpful read!

Reblog Twofer!

Real life has gotten in my way once again, leaving me way behind on this week’s blog visits and posts, but I refuse to give up. So today, I have two, count ’em, TWO, great Story Empire posts to share with you.  The first is an excellent post from Harmony Kent for PC users who want to know how to use Mac-Only software on their computers. Check it out here: How To Use Mac in Cloud

And the second is today’s post by Denise Finn on why writers write. Check it out here: The Writing Spark

I know you’ll enjoy (and learn from) both of these posts, so I do hope you’ll zip on over to visit Story Empire, and will remember to pass these along on all your favorite social media sites. THANKS! 

Sharing #StoryEmpire Post from Joan Hall

Joan’s post today on Story Empire was especially interesting to me, as it deals with Writing Sprints. What a great idea for pushing yourself to get moving with a stalled (or very slow) WIP. Check it out, and you’ll see what I mean. And then, I do hope you’ll share the post with others. It seems a LOT of us could make use of her suggestions these days. Thanks, and thanks to Joan for sharing her tips.

Getting it Done with Writing Sprints


The Case for Chapter Titles #StoryEmpire

Hi, folks! 

Today, I’m the featured blogger on Story Empire, and I hope you’ll stop by and check out my post on chapter titles. I’d love to hear what you think about this topic, as it’s been near and dear to my heart for my entire reading life (over 70 years, now!). Your comments over there would be most welcome, thanks, and I hope you’ll share the post far and wide, too. Here’s the link:

The Case for Chapter Titles

I’m at #StoryEmpire Today and I Hope You’ll Stop By!

As many of you know, I was invited to join the team over at Story Empire, and will now be posting there regularly (about twice a month). Happily, I scheduled several posts ahead, which is helpful while I’m still moving at a snail’s pace around here. And today, I’m beginning my Why Write Wrong? series over there, as a quick and easy way to understand frequently misused words and phrases. Hope you’ll stop by to say hi, and check out it out. I’ll be running this series on Story Empire every two or three posts, and hope it will be a helpful and fun way for folks to learn how to avoid some of these writing errors. I’ve posted a couple of these here over the years, but there are also a lot of new ones coming up. I see these things way too often lately, and I’ve been taking notes. 😀 

Hope to see you there, thanks!
