Hey there party people!!!
Today I'm over at Crystal Collier's blog, playing her Truth or Lie game so go check it out! Go, go, Go! Good luck guessing the lie ;)
Speaking of lies . . . as writers, we sometimes tell ourselves some white lies to help us through the days, or weeks, or months. I know I've told myself several times that I was just too busy to write, when in reality I just wanted to watch Netflix. Nothing wrong with that. Hey! I was doing research :) But there's a difference between looking for excuses and accepting I just want to relax and take a break from writing. Don't judge me! I know I'm not the only one, but why do we bother lying to ourselves? It doesn't matter really, at the end of the day we know the deal. We know we will work on our books soon. We know we need time off. And we know we're just rationalizing.
Still . . . I think that's okay. Obviously it's better if we don't, but we're not harming anyone. However, there are things that I think we should never do as writers or we'd really be harming our writing. Here's a list of DON'Ts:
And I'm also here celebrating with Cathrina Constantine on her new release: Snow on Cinders, read below for her blurb, and check out her beautiful cover! Congrats, Cathrina!
SNOW ON CINDERS
How far would you go to protect your family?
A peculiar metamorphosis has taken shape since the final days. And the planet is in the throes of healing.
Fulvio McTullan leads his family and a band of misfits to form a new settlement, far from Tallas and it’s nefarious Elites. Their journey takes them into uncharted territories where strange creatures are lurking. It’s a battle of survival, not only from the creatures, but the mutated earth as well.
Meanwhile, Pomfrey Addler, an oppressive Elite squashes the insurrection in Tallas. Suddenly, citizens begin to vanish in the middle of the night and his daughter, Paniess is hell bent on revenge.
Fraught with mishaps, Fulvio finally locates the perfect place to settle. They begin to rebuild until they receive a call. A call which will lure them back into the clutches of Tallas.
