Six Word Story

How quickly you throw me away.

Unintentional Post

Sometimes I accidentally hit Publish

Do you? What do you do?

I debate if I should change it. I usually mean to publish at a later date. But for some reason I  hit Publish instead of Scheduling it. If I change it then the email you all received is rendered null but if I don’t it messes up my plans in my head for the week.

What to do?

How’s your writing adventure going? Hope it’s going better than mine.

ReBlog – Developing a Thick Skin

One of the things that we writers are supposed to do, in order to deal with rejection, is to develop a “thick skin.”

I heard this at the very beginning of my writing career, and unfortunately, I took it at face value.  I thought that somehow I could build up immunity to the pain of rejection and criticism using willpower or “mind over matter” approaches, the way it’s possible to psyche yourself into tolerating more pain at the dentist’s office.

It doesn’t work this way.

ReBlog – What font or type faces should I use on my book cover? |

The font face choice is where so many book covers are let down. You may have a lot of experience with Photoshop or Gimp, and your image might beat the pants of other book cover images but the wrong choice can make your cover turn from professional to amateur in a swift punch. You might have read my past article about what images to put on your cover, and if you decide to stick with typography so this is the next natural step in the process of design.

“Something tells me that’s not necessarily true Ms. Davenport,” he challenged as I felt his eyes slowly travel the contours of my face.

I took a deep breath in and challenged him right back even though my body was enjoying the proximity of his.

“I’ll just have to prove you wrong, won’t I?”
