Decoding the Novel Synopsis

C.B. Wentworth has posted an amazing blog titled “Decoding the Novel Synopsis”. I urge all of you to visit her site and read it.  All of a sudden it clicked in my head what I’ve been doing wrong.  I’ve spent the last hour working on my synopsis and it’s flowing like mad.  I know I’ll have to tidy it up, replace boring words and phrases with active, tension-filled text, but the draft is coming together so fast.

Thank you C.B.!  Amazing.


A – Z Blogging Challenge

I must have lost my mind.  I just signed up for the A to Z blogging challenge next month!  What is A-Z blogging?  In short, the idea is to blog for 26 days using each letter of the alphabet as a blogging topic. That’s it! You can blog about whatever you wish, the only requirement is that each day has a corresponding letter and your post topic must start with that letter.  For those of you who are at a loss as to what to write about in your blog, now is the time to flex those creative muscles and write.

Now, I don’t know about you.  26 blog posts are a lot of posts.  But I like the challenge because you can write about anything.  It’s a great way to get your readers to know more about you and what interests you.  Explore your passions, write a short story or poem.  Become your own Dr. Seuss for those X and Z posts.  It’s not called a challenge for nothing!  LOL!

So, pop on over to A-Z and sign up!  What are you waiting for?
