Hey Alix :) Not a bad idea… let me ponder, it might interface with something else I’m planning. Also, quite keen to get the “Slurb Club” going – a place to develop Synopses / Blurbs. A fresh pair of eyes is indispensable when you’re trying to slurb...
Throwback Thursday - Considering I've just finished watching the first ever Submission Surgery :)
Would you consider creating like the Flash Fiction exercise, a Cookies exercise to practise emotional impact in our manuscripts, like a weekly exercise and you give us a theme. You can announce the best one/winner on POP-UPS every Sunday. Just a thought because I feel us writers would really benefit from it.
No creative writing (since a flurry after Pete's input the other day), but I have produced a 10cm high pile of photocopies & original documents to support my application for French residency. (Just mine, 3 more to go) that's nearly one ream of paper = 6% of a tree.
On today's Pop-Ups there's fantasy/children's from Matt, a historical novel from Mark, a thriller from AG, non-fiction from Nicolas and crime from Michael. Plus special guest & top publisher-soon-to-be-agent Jon Wood!
On today's Pop-Ups there's science fiction from Toby, a thriller from Ash, fantasy/ romance from Baby Lion, magic realism from Emily, fiction from Norton and urban fantasy/horror from Lex. Join us at 6pm UK today https://www.facebook.com/RealLitopia
New dog and I are doing fine. The rescue org said 6 years old, but my vet says she is more like 2 or 3. This explains the puppy-like behavior, vertical leaps and twirls when she knows we are going for a walk. I tried to add a picture - it didn't work. She is a black and silver Alaskan Malamute, on the small side at 70 pounds.
On today's Pop-Ups there's a thriller type of thing from Barbara, middle grade fiction from Luke, a weork of satire/high concept low morality from Robert, a family saga from Diane, comedy horror from Stephen and a work of sport/politics/coming of age/sexuality/race from Bruce. Join us for the first show in the new series, 6pm UK. https://www.facebook.com/RealLitopia
Head too full of the new term, writing reduced to bite-sized chunks advertising extra-curricular activities to have much time for fiction.
BUT I have re-submitted my main WIP for appraisal in the hope it might help me out the cul-de-sac I feel I'm in.
