Three Thing Thursday

Writing for Charity:
November 4, 2017

More info to come

August Writing Challenge:  

Writing prompts.

Establishing goals.

A prize or two.

Ending with a dinner together.

More info to come.

Today, it’s just me and computer after two pee em. I plan on writing everyday like Crazy Horses.

No more info to come. But I will let you know what I get accomplished.

(I also plan on doing some organizing stuff around the house, too. I

will let you know if I get anything done. Sure. A list.)

Plus I actually quite loved Fahrenheit 451. I got a copy that had tons of essays written about the novel in the back of the book. As I read I could see this huge rise in tension, but there were so many pages left. How was Bradbury going to pull it off?

Then, accidentally, I  saw an essay. End notes. Extra Stuff! Now I understood. This book was beautifully timed. Of course. A terrific read.

And the essays aren’t bad, either.

How Did You Do?

I hope the two week writing marathon was fun for you and you accomplished your goals. I didn’t get everything done. But during the writing, I saw  my book had a flaw, and when I went back through it in my mind I realized exactly where I went wrong.

A shift here, a shift there and the book goes into my agent.

So far we have six people planning on coming to the reading/dinner. For those of you who have food allergies, there is no set plan on the menu. You may choose what you want to eat.

If this is successful, I think this might be a fun place to gather and be writers and do readings and talk books.

So mark your calendars: April 8, 7:00 pm, Station 22.

(Ann Dee, is that right? It may be 7:30. It’s whatever time I told you before!)

FYI–a note about Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers (www.wifyr.com). Steve Fraser is one of the agents returning to the conference. For attendees only–there is the chance to win a Chat about Your Career with him.

Also, the WIFYR writing contest with a $1000 prize–there’s something new. The winner will be considered for publication by Familius. Cheri Pray Earl and I have a series coming out with them, starting this year. We’re excited about the possibilities with this new publishing company.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Writing for Charity event (April 27, at UVU) and for LDS Storymakers conference (in May).

Plus–we’re thinking of having a charity event, too. This will be several hours of writing and will end with a dance. As details unfold, we’ll let you know.

Now, I am off to court with Kyra.

And then back to pack and finish up my novel.
