This has been a real week of ups and downs with my writing. The wordcount on Wildings is going steadily up, and its taking shape, but my characters are giving me hell and even though the plot is outlined, I am not entirely certain how I’m going to get them there from here.
I have added a page to the blog for My Fiction, where you can see what my current projects are and where I am. Will update as I develop workable blurbs for the new stuff. If you have any comments or suggestions about what you see there, please do let me know! I’m always open to feedback.
And… a bit about Twitter. If you follow me on Twitter, you know I love it. One thing I’m not so wild about though: #followfriday. I do like to recommend folks I follow, but A. every freaking week I forget it’s friday, so I have to scramble to put names together, and B. I hate feeling like I’m leaving people out and C. I hate it when people I follow post 20 tweets in a row with names they’re recommending. It’s eye-spammy. I’ve hovered my fingers over the ‘unfollow’ button on a few people who do this, and I don’t want to tempt my followers to do the same to me. I figure I’m on thin ice with them most of the time anyway.
So what I’ve done is create a follow-friday twitter list. If you’re looking for fun, interactive tweeps, then follow them. Most of them are writers, all of them are active, and some of them regularly cause me to guffaw and make other unladylike noises.
I also have received some blog awards recently, which makes me feel all warm and squishy, but slightly awkward (which I usually feel when people are saying nice things about me to other people) and I wanted to note my thanks. My new friend and crit partner Sangu Mandanna gave me a Prolific Blogger award, Crystal Cook gave me a Sweet Blogger award (yes, really… shut up), and Talli Rolland gave me a Soulmates award. Thank you!
So this was my week! How was yours?
