Friday Linky Love (and you, twitter-friend, that’s Linky not Kinky-you know who you are *laughing*): Writer Unboxed
My break between novels is over as of yesterday, and I will be working my wittle arse to the bone–wait, is that the right analogy/imagery? Huhn, well, that’s how it’ll feel once said arse sits upon said brown leather chair (or on warm days, on rocker or cushioned iron chair on the p’och–that’s porch for all you non-southern/appalachian types) for hours and hours and danged hours upon danged more hours! I have to remember to: eat, stand and walk around, actually look at GMR and acknowledge him instead of going “uh huh, hmmm, uh huh” when he speaks, and to remember that GMR doesn’t know who Laura is or any of the other characters, so when I excitedly ramble about so and so and such and such and GMR goes “who are you talking about?” I have to remember he’s not in my chaotic pea-head (thank gawd!, for that’s a danged ole scary place to be–ungh!). This new book will have supernatural elements (previous novels touched on it, but this one will dive full-tilt into the supernatural–at least that’s the plan :-D – lawd) and I am ready to unleash the crazy-dawgs (that’s dogs for . . . well, you know the rest).
The final Graces Saga book. Family Graces, will be out this spring and I’ll post more about that later–you all know I don’t do the yappity do dah day about my books, unless I have news to share.
So this morning for Linky Love day (and I laughed when a new twitter friend mis-read and thought I wrote “Kinky Love Day” last week – haw!), I want to talk once again about Writer Unboxed. If you are a writer, or a reader, or in publishing/books, then this is the place to be. Writer Unboxed is growing–as I said on Writer Unboxed’s Facebook Page, “I feel all snuggly-poo that I’ve been here from the start,” and they now have over a thousand members–and quickly growing, y’all!
The WU Blog is an eclectic mix of this that and the other for readers, writers, industry peoples (publishing, books, agents, literature, etc etc etc), and tons of support and information to help us in our publishing, writing, reading, et cetera, lives. The WU newsletter is out and if you haven’t signed up, oh do think to do so–I am reading through the first issue and it’s chock-full of gooey goodstuff. I just can’t say enough good things about Writer Unboxed.
And, I was surprised to have a mention in the very first WU Newsletter for my “Monday Classroom” series–teehee–thank you wonderful WU Guru Vaughn Roycroft for that mention. I love writing my blawg posts for Monday Classroom, and hope I continue to delight and astound–okay, maybe not *laughing* – I just appreciate all yallses danged ole support and I hope my lil tidbits help you in your writing journeys.
Now, ya’ll go do the day–do it Strong! do it Happy! do it with Gratitude! Remember–dreams ain’t nothing without some good old fashioned hard work to help them come true. And while I’m on that subject–sometimes we have to take our dreams, turn them upside down, shake the hell-far (that’s hell-fire for you non-southern/appalachian peoples) out of them to see if maybe, just maybe, something we never expected falls out of the dream’s deep deep pockets, way down deep in the very corners where lint usually resides. Dreams can often offer lint-covered surprises, if you are open to giving them a big ole shake and then brush off that lint to see what shiny thing emerges.
