Just a quick post to let you all know that I have a guest post over on Procraistin8or’s World of Words. Not my best work, I should have cleaned it up a bit (sorry Matt), but I think it does get my point across. I helped The Procraistin8or (yes, I envision a Terminator character when I read that word, too) finish up a series he started on cell phone apps that writer’s might find useful. Check it out. I think the last one I listed might help if you have a tendency to wander on the internet rather than dutifully finish your masterpiece.
Some other random news presented in no particular order:
- I’ve reached the 75,000 word mark on my novel re-write. I think this baby might get over 90,000 words. Yikes. That’s not what I had intended way back when I envisioned this series, but, hey, this is a learning process.
- I’m putting together an anthology! Only open to SFFWorld.com forum members, but if you happen to be a member, come join the gang and submit a story. This will be an entirely different learning process for me. I get to be editor and grand poo-bah. Lots of fun.
- If you ever wanted to come up with some snazzy maps for your books, but don’t have the skills to do it yourself or the money to hire a cartographer, check out the first of a promised series on the topic by J.W. Shortland. I haven’t tried the software myself, but Mr. Shortland’s instructions seem thorough and easy to follow. If you try it, let me know!
- And if you plan to self-publish short fiction or a novel, check out J.W. Manus’ blog posts on e-book formatting. Her posts are well written and informative. If you follow her guidance, you’ll be sure to find the answers to all those pesky formatting issues, and be 100% ahead of the game.
Until next time, stop procrastinating and write.
