IWSG – Going Down the Right Path & Announcement

First I want to give a shout out to Nicohle Christopherson. She is co-hosting IWSG this month. She is also my first student, and it has been a privilege to teach her. Like many beginners, she was resistant to my teachings, but over time, saw the value of my wisdom. In that time, we’ve watch the first 12 seasons of RedvsBlue (good to watch for great dialogue), and started watching Elementary together, and a number of movies, many of which she thought she wouldn’t like.

I’m very proud of her. She is destined to become an author. So I ask that you stop by her page and show her some love.

Updates about Site and Book

Every Friday on the IWSG FB group, they ask us to post our achievements for the week. I hope they don’t mind that instead of posting it all there, I am making a post about it. Several things to update everyone on.

#IWSG Book Reveal(ish)

This month, I promised to talk about my big project that has kept me very busy. So busy I haven’t done anything else that I really need to do. I do apologize for all the secrecy, but I need to make sure that it is I who releases this, as it may very well help me out of my financial situation.

How Elementary Helped Me Become a Better Writer

http://thetamnews.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/elementary_cbs.jpg

Start off, I am currently at the halfway point for the current phase I’m in for my project. Likely after I finish this and the next phase I’ll be at the halfway point for the project. I’ve decided that for February IWSG, I will reveal what the project is.

I love the show Elementary. Sherlock Holmes in NY with a female Watson. What’s not to love. It’s a great show and writers can learn a great deal in watching it, especially the biggest lesson one can learn from it.

What’s It Like to Write a Writing Help Book

In one word: Tedious.

You thought writing a book was hard enough, but doing a writing help book is a whole other beast.

Profiling Personalities

Given my IWSG post this month, I am working diligently towards a goal of sustaining myself. Not just because I want to be self-reliant, but because I have to be. I’m sure another place would open up to me and I can move and live there for a spell, but I don’t want to keep doing that. As they say, Need is the Mother of Invention.

Look at the name of the ship. From Red vs Blue.

I want to chronicle my journey as it pertains to writing. This blog is a major part of me, and all of you who visit my site have made it what it is. This year I expect to get to 50k views. So it’s only fitting that I keep everyone up to date.

However, this is a Writing Education blog, so I will try to throw some education in, for good measure.

IWSG – Last Minute Update

So this is a super quick post, primarily because I don’t want to lose my place on the IWSG list. For some reason that is important to me.

I’ve been super busy as of late, spending a lot of time working on my course. I meant to do this long ago, but as you know, things happen. My computer crashed on me. Thankfully, my computer setup is designed that if I do crash, I don’t lose that much. Some stuff was lost. My computer has 3 drives, and the OS drive (or C:\) is only 32GB. Then I have a drive for programs and storage.

I hope next month to announce my actual course, and maybe have a coupon for my readers. It looks like I won’t do another Worldbuilding article until next year. That really pains me, as I have so much I want to write about, but this course takes priority.

I am happy that despite only having one article last month, I still got over 900 views. It’s good to know my website is still relevant even when I am very busy. When one has very little in life, the smallest things are the biggest achievements.
