A Call For Help for #PitDark

Standard

Please!

Hello everyone! This may sound like an odd request, but on Thursday 10/14/2021 I am participating in #PitDark on Twitter, a day long event in which authors tweet a pitch for a book to agents.

If any of you have Twitter, please consider retweeting my pinned tweet, which I will put up tomorrow morning.

My Twitter handle is @French_C1955

This is also important–do not like the pitch–that is for agents to let writers know they are interested in your work.

The tweet will be for my novel The Ameriad: The Monastery of Knowledge.  I will have the tweet up at 8 A. M. EST.

It will look something like this:

THE FIFTH SEASON X PARABLE OF THE SOWER Lignne knows who she is, what she wants, and faces likely death. Climate disaster puts Earth into dark ages; she wants to be the first female graduate in the Monastery, but murderous treachery threaten her success and life. #A #PitDark #PA

Again, thank you to all!

Reviews of Get The Draft Done! Helping Writers Finish Their First Draft by Charles F. French

Standard

getthedraftdonecovera-1-e1584804547435

Must Read for Writers!

“As a writer, I have always found writing the first draft of my novel to be a daunting process. I had the novel idea, had some idea of how I wanted it to start, and how I wanted it to end. But after reading this book, I now feel I have the tools and confidence I need to get my first draft done without any obstacles!

I definitely consider this book a must-read for any writer who is struggling with their first draft! And if you’re looking for a good recipe for an omelette, this book has that as well.”

Do you write? Then you have to do drafts and need this book

“Ah, the draft!! Any writer knows good work takes many drafts and edits. This book will help you get it done and done correctly.”

The book is a treasure.

“For five long years, I could not finish the first draft. After reading this book, I finished in three weeks. Great read!”

Update On Writing Progress

Standard

Hello to everyone!

My writing schedule for the year is a bit off track so far. I had hoped to be further along with the first draft of the Historical Romance I am writing, which is a bit different from what I have been writing–mainly horror. If you have read my Investigative Paranormal Society series though, you can see that love is a theme that runs through these novels. My writing schedule was interrupted by life–I was ill with a stomach virus for about 10 days, not covid, and one of my closest friends just died.

While I am a bit behind on my plan, I did reach 20,000 words on the 1st draft today. At this present rate, I should have the first draft complete sometime in April.

Additionally, I want to put what I hope are the finishing edits on two other books–Book 1 of a YA environmental post-apocalypse series and Book 1 of a horror series.

My question to all of the writers out there who read this: how is your writing progressing?

What Are Your Writing Goals for 2019?

Standard

goal-setting-1955806__340

(https://pixabay.com)

I am not a fan of resolutions, because they are often easily broken. I am, however, a big believer in having goals–both large and small.  I have several specific writing goals for this year, and I hope I will accomplish all of them. I might not be successful in all, but I will try anyway.

I intend to have two books on writing out this year, and one is almost complete.

I intend to finish two first drafts of novels.

I want to have a novel published by fall of this year.

I will put out a small menu book based on characters from The Investigative Paranormal Society.

I want to publish an audio version of Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 1.

I also have another venture that I am planning, but I will write about that in another post.

So, I ask all of you:  What are your writing goals for 2019?
