The blog hop for the Insecure Writers Support Group was fantastic last Wednesday. I enjoy this once a month tradition for writers to get together and share their insecurities. Writers insecure? You bet! Find out more about joining the group by clicking here for my IWSG post.
my official author page at BWL. If you have a chance, pop over and check out the books. Something for everybody there.
Tiny Tidbits for Writing and Life
- When a kitty/cat snags her claws into your sweater or fabric, do not pull the cat away from you or pull the cat down. Always pull the cat up to avoid causing a huge snag.
- New word in the writing world for me--prolixity. According to my Kindle dictionary, the word means using "too many words, tediously lengthy". I found this word in Bill Roorbach's excellent book on memoir writing, Writing Life Stories.
- Do you know you can easily find the definition of a word when reading on a Kindle? Place your finger on the word in the sentence and the definition pops up. So easy and helpful. I usualy highlight the word and make a note so I can find it again. I enjoy learning new words. I guess 'cause wordsmithing is my job.
In case you're thinking about writing a memoir, click on the book cover below for more information about Bill Roorbach's book.
