Go Set a Watchman

I'm curious to know how many of you have read Harper Lee's "Go Set A Watchman".  I have the audio book version, read by Reese Witherspoon.  (She does an excellent job.)  You know, by Chapter 5 I still don't have a clue what the book is about, only that Scout comes home to visit.  And you know what?  I don't care what it's about.  I'm just lost in the wonderful words!  It's music to my ears.  It's cotton candy, candy apples and chocolate bars rolled up into one big sugar lump and it is wonderful.  I know there are some that say that Ms. Lee didn't want the book to be published and I think I believe that more than the other people saying she did.  But I sure am glad whomever got it published did.  It would be a crime to keep the book locked away from others.  If you haven't read it, then go buy it.  Sit down and just enjoy the words, words from long ago, spoken in this colorful language from a time long gone.

I Dream of Dragons

I have officially gotten on board the technology train.  I have tried to get a children's book published for a while and decided to start a you tube channel to promote my books.  Here is the link.  It's my very first video so be kind on your reviews!   I am currently working on my next you tube book video/video book...whatever you would call it.

Dream Work

    Another dream, another idea.  It happens every once in a while.  I wake up from an epic dream and run to my computer to write down the details before they fade out of my memory.   Just how many ideas do I have now?  A lot. 

    I have a notebook full of ideas and detailed story notes but now that I look over it, ready to start writing, I can't decide which of these ideas to even get started on. 

How do you decide?!

Querry Letters

Do you have questions about query letters like I do?  I think they are harder to write than the book.  Here is a great site with FAQs about query letters.  While you are there, take a look around the site.  Does anyone else have some advice on query letters to share?

Do you outline?

These famous writers do.  Go check out this website and look at their images to see all the outlines from familiar authors.   Here is one example from J.K. Rowling from the website Flavorwire.

If you are a writer that does outline it is interesting to see the different ways other writers outline.  I usually use the standard Roman Numeral way or I write it down on index cards and put things in order.  Which way do you outline?
