Where You'll Find Me

I'm currently running my blog over at WritersAfterDark.net. I'd love it if you stopped by and hang for a bit! I'll return the favor, promise!

Running two blogs gets a bit difficult, so bear with me while I figure things out. In the meantime, if I could interest you in industry news, writing tips, and poking some fun at writerly problems, you'll find me here:

A to Z Challenge—S.K.-isms! W is for . . .




W is for Wrosers. Stands for loser writer. Calm down . . . I’m not calling you names. Just read the example:

Tips on how to become a Wroser:

1- When you feel a writer’s block coming on, embrace it.
2- If you feel like giving up, do it.
3- Go ahead and think you’re the best thing since sliced bread. And shout it across all social media available to you, especially if you haven’t published any books yet.
4- Hate reading.
5- Let fear win and never write again.

Don’t want to become a loser writer? Follow the complete opposite of the tips, and you’ll be fine. Pinky swear.

*S.K.’s original term. I’m working on the 5th tip. The opposite, that is.
