Write About Dragons?

I am taking part in a terrific writing class which is on-line and free. It’s called Write About Dragons. It’s taught by Brandon Sanderson who recently won two Hugo awards. Brandon has tons of knowledge to share and an excellent style of teaching. I hope some of you will join me in taking this class.

The measly 3,000-4,000 words I’ve posted for the forum is nowhere near the number I need. But, in my defense, these post are in addition to putting together a non-fiction book, managing  Owensboro Writers Group and editing a short story for the growing writers’ group (see “Owensboro Writers’ Group is famous“). My posts are science-fiction and fantasy. You can see them at http://searchfordragons.com/?a_id=444&author_name=TheresaJewel, but I don’t know if you can read or critique them without joining the forum. If you do read and/or critique them, please comment below.


P is for Procrastination

I didn’t come up with a title for R yet, but I found the following quote to be quite inspirational:

“Have you been procrastinating about writing? Spend 15 minutes writing about what you’ve been doing instead of writing.

Put it on your fridge for a couple of days as a reminder and then re-visit this prompt. This time, spend 15 minutes writing a plan on how you’re going to wipe out procrastination. Put it on the fridge and use it as a checklist to start writing consistently on your own terms.”

I wanted to share this with everyone who has problems with procrastination. Try it out and see if it helps you.
