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.
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?
