I finally finished the crocheting that shawl I've been working on for a year. Now it's time to attach the 70 beads.
So I decided to write instead.
As I've stated before, there has been very little fiction writing happening. Which is the reason I'm hanging out here.
I do have a lot of half thought out ideas. And a work in chaos that is nagging me to return.
In the meantime, I have found a few writer's resources to explore.
If you follow me on the Twitters, you are aware that Thursday evening becomes twittersanity night on my stream. I engage in a few writer chats over a two (or so) hour period.
At 8 pm EST I am chatting it up with the StoryDam crew. We have a topic each week related to writing. All writers are welcome! Just use the StoryDam hashtag and jump in.
Then, at 9 pm EST I generally join the 10 Minute Novelist chat. Another fun way to connect with writers. That hashtag is 10MinNovelists. They also have a facebook page. here.
There are a load of twitter chats for writers. Put your favorites in the comments, I'd love to check them out!
As I was muddling around on the social medias, my writing friend Stephanie from My Write Side posted an article spotlighting a few resources. Take a look, you might find something just for you. She also has another project in the works for writers looking to connect. I'm excited to see what she's going to offer.
And I just signed up for a newsletter from WritersLife.org. They offered this list of writing prompts.
For those newbies with a few thousand words that need a place to go, One Story is looking for submissions. (I need to round up some words and try to organize them.)
If you are inclined to see what I'm up to here, or on the fiction blog, Elsetime & Otherwhen, you can like either or both on facebook (bats eyelashes.) I haven't been working them to the extent I should, so any input would be great.
Well, I've randomly ranted long enough, so I should probably find some beads...or words.
