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?

This is how you do it

I only thought I was going to let a migraine stand in the way of writing an article.  Turns out all I need to do is to sit down and write.  Easier said than done, right?

Do all writers suffer from a horrible case of procrastination?  Do you?  What do you do about it?  I normally would go do housework or some kind of physical activity.  I don’t know why but that always gets my creative juices flowing, especially walking.  Not walking on the treadmill but walking outside.   I could go on and on about taking a walk and what I would see, smell and touch that would inspire me but that would be procrastinating and we all know I don't do that.  So now, let me tell you about this dream I had last night...
