What Are You Working On?

This last month has been a lost one for me in terms of writing. The need to find a new place to live, to pack, and to move has dominated the life of my family.  Now, however, I can return to writing, and I am very excited about it!

I will continue to work on the first draft of my latest horror novel, and I hope to have that draft complete by the end of October.

So, I ask all the creative people out there: what are you working on?

At The Writers Digest 2022 Conference

Standard

Me

I spent the weekend at the 2022 Writers Digest Conference in New York City, one of my favorite places in the world, and I had a wonderful time! Not only did I learn a great deal about the world of writing and publishing at numerous excellent sessions, but I also attended the Pitch Slam session.  I like to refer to this event as speed dating with literary agents! For one hour, many writers attempt to find and speak with agents, whom they think will fit their projects well. I was fortunate and was able to meet with six agents, and I had requests from 4, ranging from a full manuscript to 10 pages. I will certainly get that work to them this week, and we will see what will happen.

I also have to thank my wonderful father-in-law for his kindness and hospitality in allowing me to spend the weekend at his house in Staten Island. 

One of the benefits of this trip for me was taking the Staten Island Ferry to Manhattan and back every day. This may seem small, but I love boats and ships, and I am like a little kid in enjoying the ride!

Also, it may seem ordinary to those who make this trip on the Ferry often, but I was able to see Lady Liberty!

If you are a writer and have the opportunity to attend this yearly conference, I recommend it!

Going To A Writers’ Conference

Standard

Hello all! I am heading off today to attend the 2022 Writer’s Digest Conference in New York City! After a couple of years of virtual meetings, it is good to be able to attend in person–masked, of course!

I will be there to gain information on writing and the publishing world from various panels, but my main goal is to pitch my novel, The War Of The Sidhe, during a Saturday Pitch Slam.  This is like speed dating with literary agents, in which the author has three minutes to try to entice the interest of the agent, and the time is enforced! The suggestion is to make a 90 second pitch and leave 90 seconds for questions.

Wish me luck!

Thank You To Writers!

Standard

 

Thank you to all the writers who are creating books, poetry, drama, and short-stories. You are also educating, informing, and entertaining! You are not only the story-tellers of society, but you are also the conscience of the world.

Keep doing what you do, and readers will continue to read your work. 

Also, please remember to have faith in yourselves and your abilities. 

Again, thank you!

A Check-in With Writers

Standard

book-794978_960_720

Hello to all the writers out there! I hope everyone is doing well and that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

This post is simply a quick check-in to see how you are doing with your writing.  Are you currently working on a first draft? Are you in the process of revision? Do you have a book coming out?

Wherever you are in the creative process, please reply, and let us know how you are doing.

Also, please remember that you can do this! You are a writer!

Since I asked the question of others, I will also answer. I am about 2/3 of the way through a current first draft, and I am making about 3-5 agent submissions per week of my finished book.

Again, I ask: how is your writing progressing?
