Writing in Color’s Creative Quote Challenge

Writing - ledes - quoteOn Saturday, I wrote about productivity and creativity, and about how they can work together. Sometimes it’s a good idea to take a creativity break. New research says it can even make you more productive! Have you tried it this week?

I also presented a challenge. It was a list of 15 inspirational quotes and a list of the people who said them in incorrect order. The challenge was to put them in order.

Happy New Year plus Something Free

Greetings friends,

Some new people have followed since my last post. Welcome! I usually post three to four times a month, except December. In December, traffic is slow on the internet and much slower everywhere else (and don’t even mention parking). I appreciate the visitors to my blog and especially those who park and sit a spell. I’ll have a new post soon. Until then, I wanted to say I enjoyed the holidays and I hope you did too.

Our Legacy: A Few Thoughts, an Editor, and a Holiday

I didn’t write a Thanksgiving post before Thanksgiving last year. My blog at that time was only a few months old. I did write a post a week later detailing some of the things I was thankful for as a writer – some things that didn’t exist when I started writing. It is titled “Computers, Conferences, and Coffee”.

In this post, I chose something different. When I’m stuck for inspiration,

Will You Submit a Question About Submissions?

Recently, I’ve received questions about the submission process for short stories and articles. I’d like to do some posts about the chances I’ve taken, some of the missteps I’ve made and the successes I’ve had.

writing - question - emoticonThere are some writers who have more experience and I may point you to some of them. But there isn’t anyone who has had my experiences; unless they’re in some weird parallel universe. If so,

That First Blog Post

Writing that first blog post / Schnauzer

__________________

Writing the first post on a new blog is sort of like having a baby isn’t it? No, not really. Perhaps like bringing home a new pet Schnauzer. There’s a lot to think about such as, “How much time will this little one demand?” or “Will it get along with the other blogs?” and especially,“What do I feed it so it will grow up strong?” I’m assuming whether blog or dog the correct answer is not broccoli.

Content Updates! At one time, I didn't know a sidebar from a slush pile. Writers speak a unique language. So, I created a fun, 5-page glossary of 25+ terms you should know. It’s free when you enter your email to receive content updates. Your email is safe. I post 3-4 times a month. I make sure it's worth your time first.

What is Writing?

"A writer looks at a screen or piece of paper like a canvas. They see a country unexplored, a picture unpainted, a tale not told. They dare to venture into the barren land, explore its dark corners, and paint its pictures. Then they unveil the epic with the goal of compelling people to visit their newly discovered territory.”
