#ReblogAlert- #TwoFer #ThisWeekOnStoryEmpire & #SmorgasbordWeeklyRoundUp

It’s time for another weekly recap from two of my favorite blogs. You folks who’ve been following awhile know that I like to share the weekly goodies from both #Story Empire and Sally Cronin’s Smorgasbord blog, because … GOOD STUFF! If you’ve weren’t able to visit any of these posts this week, now’s your chance to head on over and find out exactly what you’ve missed! I highly recommend visiting both! 


MONDAY: Harmony Kent starts the week off with a post introducing her newest series. The post, How to Use Prologues, Part 1, Overview, is well worth checking out, whether you’re Pro or Con on the issue.  As a person who thoroughly enjoys prologues when they are done well, I’m very interested in this series and will be following closely. Check out Harmony’s post HERE.

WEDNESDAY: D. L. Finn pops in mid-week to talk about Writing and Book Covers. She has some very handy tips for those who’d like create their own,  and even though I have mine done by an excellent graphics designer who’s a very good friend, I found this post extremely useful, especially for those interested in using Canva. You can check out Denise’s post HERE.

FRIDAY: And on Friday, John W. Howell stops by to Wish Everyone a Peaceful Weekend. You can stop by to like John’s post HERE.

 


And you know what comes next, right? Sally Cronin’s fabulous weekly round up post! You can see everything that went on over on Smorgasbord blog this week, and you really owe it to yourself to check for goodies you may have missed.

#ReblogAlert- #TwoFer #ThisWeekOnStoryEmpire & #SmorgasbordWeeklyRoundUp

Well, folks … here it is Sun’s Day again, and I’m even farther behind than ever! Seems like “the hurrier I go, the behinder I get,” as the old saying goes. Once again, I didn’t have time to read all my favorite blogs this week, though I’ve been trying to stop by long enough to Like and Share, when possible. SE gang, I promise to catch up SOON, because your posts this week look amazing, and I want to see what they’re all about. Sally, I plan to scroll through your roundup later today, when I’m on a break from painting (walls and fences). But I have NO problem at all sharing these links so others will be reminded to stop by, because it’s a given that everything listed below will be well worth checking out. With that in mind, here we go:


MONDAY: D. Wallace Peach starts the week off with what I’m sure is another very helpful post entitled Crafting Rich Characters Part 4. Since characters are the most important element in any book I read (or write), I can’t wait to read Diana’s post. You can check it out HERE.

WEDNESDAY:  Jan Sikes offers the next installment in her excellent series on marketing, entitled MKTG #13 – BookBub Ads. I’ve been planning to do something about my poor marketing this year, and this entire series has been a big help. I’m really going to enjoy learning more about BookBub, and you can check her post out HERE.

FRIDAY: Craig Boyack wraps up the week with a topic that struck a nerve with me, and immediately, I had to take a minute away from putting this reblog together to read it. It’s entitled Modern Day Censorship and you owe it to yourself to read both his post and all of the comments beneath, as well. This is something everyone should be concerned about, especially we writers and other artists. Check it out HERE.


And as always, Sally’s Weekly Roundup Post is absolutely filled to the max with wonderfully varied entertaining and informative posts. Don’t miss out!

MONDAY: Staci Troilo starts the week off an a great note with her post entitled Story Development and Execution Part 3: Character. This was an extremely helpful post for me, as it brought back some things I’d forgotten, and introduced some things I’d never learned. I highly recommend checking it out HERE.

WEDNESDAY: Gwen Plano’s mid-week post entitled Writers and Health is another one you don’t want to miss. We writers tend to forget to take care of ourselves, and it has never been more important than it is in today’s world. Check out Gwen’s post HERE

FRIDAY: Beem Weeks wraps up this week with a very important reminder entitled Unplugging From Technology–If Only for a Day. If you haven’t read this, you really should stop by. It’s something so important, yet so easy to forget. Check out Beem’s post HERE

Today is Sun’s Day, and another chance to share some wonderful posts from this past week from two of my favorite blogs. If you missed any of these, now’s your second chance at them.  Enjoy!

MONDAY: D. L. Finn starts the week off with a very  helpful post entitled Writing Book Blurbs, something most of us do not look forward to. Check out her tips on what to do, and what to avoid HERE.

WEDNESDAY:  Mae Clair’s mid-week post entitled Writing Inquiry Letters is one you won’t want to miss if you’re considering giving trad publishing a try. I would have NO idea where to start, and I suspect I’m not alone in that, but Mae’s post will put you on the path to doing so in a way that won’t scare potential agents off. Check it out HERE.

FRIDAY:  To wrap up the week Joan Hall shares some great reminders (and some things you may never even have thought of) in her post entitled Blogging Etiquette. I really love this post, as it is so important if you want to be part of the blogging community. (And she also reminded me of something I do quite unintentionally that I need to watch out for.) You can check out Joan’s post HERE.


PLEASE NOTE: I had some kind of brain malfunction earlier and credited Harmony Kent with this lovely post from Joan Hall. Blame it on creeping senility, long-COVID, or general stupidity, but I swear to you, I read the post and knew it was Joan’s, and I apologize to both of these lovely ladies for such a dumb mistake!!  *goes off hanging head in shame*


Once again, Sally’s fabulous blog has presented us with posts on all kinds of subjects, some wonderful videos, and plenty of great stuff supporting her fellow writers and bloggers. In case you didn’t know this, Sally ROCKS! 😊

#ReblogAlert – #Twofer – This Week on #StoryEmpire and #SmorgasbordWeeklyRoundUp

I apologize for missing last week’s round up posts, but I was still running way behind and just couldn’t catch up. I’m happy to say, I’ve been improving a bit more the last few days, and have high hopes I’ll be back to my normal routine (and blogging schedule) before much longer. Let’s start things off right with a recap from last week’s #StoryEmpire and #Smorgasbord posts. Enjoy!

MONDAY:  Joan Hall starts the week off with a very interesting post entitled Would You Buy This Book? She raises some questions about marketing tactics that may or may not be helpful, and could even be a turn-off for some potential buyers. Check out Joan’s post HERE.

WEDNESDAY: A great mid-week post by Staci Troilo entitled Story Development and Execution Part 2: The Story Bible really caught my attention. Whether you are a plotter or a pantser,  I think the tips Staci posted can help you. The sure helped me. Check out Staci’s post HERE. 

FRIDAY: Gwen Plano wraps up the week with a post entitled The Rise of Short Stories, and I think you’ll really enjoy this one. Ever compare yourself to a goldfish before? A bit alarming, I must say, but some super info to consider. Check out Gwen’s post HERE.


And of course, Sally had yet another fabulous week of posts on everything under the sun. Here’s her RoundUp of the week, in case you missed anything. Happy Reading!
