Friday Links -- Volume 39

After a lot of futzing around with my latest chapter, it's finally beginning to come together.  Good thing too, since I'm about at the point where I can't stand to look at it anymore.  :)  I'll polish it a bit more tonight then move on to something else.

I wish you all a great weekend.  And if you haven't already seen it, check out Wednesday's post on Crystal Collier's Cover Reveal.

The Self-Pub Diaries Part III: Asking For It


  1. Glad it's coming together! Did you get your computer fixed?

    1. Yep. Turned out it was only a power supply. Everything's working again. Thanks for asking.

  2. I'm getting that "sick of it" feeling with a couple of the chapters in my current WIP. It's nonfiction, and some events are easier to research than others.

    Anyway, I found you via the #mywana hashtag & I wanted to invite you to share this post on the #StoryDam writing chat blog hop. We do a chat about writing each Thursday on Twitter (you are very welcome to join us!) and we then share blog posts on a weekly hop.

    I don't want to end up in your spam folder by sharing a link, though. So if you're interested, just pop over to Twitter (I'm @TuiSnider) & I'll tweet you the blog hop link.

    I know that other #StoryDam folks would really enjoy the links you've shared here. :)

    Nice to meet you!

  3. Sorry that chapter has annoyed the snot out of you.
    And starting at the end with the character arc - that's exactly what I do!

    1. To be honest, this has still been one of the easier chapters for me. I've spent a month trying to fix the shambles of a single chapter!

  4. Of course I had to read the editing post. I guess my prices are still too cheap. But I still get a lot of writers who can't afford a full edit.

    Are you interested in a referral for story structure? The price came out way too high for what the book needed. 100,000 words. YA SF.

    Let me know.

  5. Yay for a chapter that's finally coming together. I love it when I reach that point, knowing it's at last working.

    1. It's always a great feeling. I can breath again. The weather seems nicer. The sun feels shinier. You know the feeling.

  6. Thanks for the links, and been there with the revising.

    Have a great week :-)

    1. Hey, we're writers. Editing is what we do. Sigh..........

  7. It's a great feeling when things start to come together.

    Hope you had a great weekend. I wanted to let you know I shared a post on finding an editor on my blog.
