Good Afternoon Folks.
I hope that yourTuesday afternoon is going well.
Mine is. I have been reading “A Novel Idea” by Eddie JonesI’m about half way through the book, which is actually a guide on writing novels. I’m in thr section where the Author creates consequences for the lead. The guide is about 66 pages long. A bare bones type of guide suited for looking up things in case you need some thing to look up. You can download the book from Amazon.com for your reading pleasure. In fact that is what I have done with several Kindle edition books so that I can train myself.
Now my writing goals for today is…
1. Post to this blog…(Being
2. Do some character details.
3. Brainstorm regarding the sci-fi novel and the How To B4. Write some poetry for the chapbook. 5. Check out Alayne Kaye Christians WordPress site to see the latest submission guidelines foe children’s writing contests. I’m glad that I found Alayne’s site again so I can submit more work. That would be really nice to start children’s stories again. In fact I will start on that tonightI think I will check Necone Ebooks as well to see what this month’s contest will be.
So on that note I will see you later! So until next time… William out!
I hope that your afternoon is going well! Mine is going Ok. U have since moved to m sister’s house so they can watch me better. I fell a couple of times in my old place so as a precaution I was moved here.
I lost all my story files while updating the iPad. Oh well such is life. I lost the app I used to write the story as well. That’s Ok though I will krrp plugging on.
I agree! This is pretty obvious! Until next time…William out!

Well, no shit, Sherlock,
we already know
it doesn’t matter how long
we’ve got left
it’s what we do
where we go.
Well, it’s short. It’s sweet. It’s Friday, folks. Here’s to hoping that you made it to your weekend and that you’re facing some time off. If not, well, just keep trekking on and at least make it a little fun.
Well, here’s to hoping your night are long, your drinks are cold, and that Monday finds you roaring and ready to go.

Good evening fellow writers!
I was searching the web for information about the Chheerios
Spoonful of Stories Contest which led me to fellow

Contest and Other Submission Opportunities in 2014
Besides submitting work to agents and publishers, don’t forget to submit to contests, grants, or mentorship programs. These are great ways to get your work noticed and perhaps published, to improve your craft, or to help pay for your writing or illustration habit.
Here’s a list of contest and submission opportunities in 2014, for both children’s book writers and illustrators, with deadline dates ordered chronologically. When a range of dates are listed, applications are accepted only within that window. If a date is in parentheses, it is the date for last year’s contest because the new date has not been announced (but it is likely this year’s deadlines will be on a similar timeline). Click the links to find out application information.
A great resource: Be…

The title of this post does say it all. Hello fellow writers. I hope that your Friday evening is going well. My day started real early this morning when I arrived at my neural ophthalmologist. 7:30 am. Yeah I’m not a morning person! My sister drove me to the office and I managed to drag myself into the place drinking as much caffeine as I could. I didn’t get much sleep the night before.
I had to go to this place because my cataract surgeon saw something and recommended I see the ophthalmologist before she does any surgery to remove scar tissue on the left eye. We tested my vision and the tests showed that it has been stabilized for the past 6 months. The doctor said I could go ahead and have the surgery to clear up the scar tissue in the eye and keep watch over a small problem that was detected. So blood work was done and I am going to do another MRI. I hate doing MRI’s. Now don’t get me wrong. I know they are an important diagnostic tool. I just hate the noise , having to lie still for 60 minutes, and having the head enclosed in steel. Other than that I’m fine! Oh well life is a bitch and I have to deal with this. Enough about me and on to the writing!
I posted a Mark Twain quote on my Cool Quotes Famous Quotes blog. This quote has to about acknowledging fault…
Always acknowledge a fault. This will throw those in authority off their guard and give you an opportunity to commit more.
US humorist, novelist, short story author, & wit (1835 – 1910)
I thought it is pretty cool! I have been and after this post will continue to work on my sci-fi and how to projects. Also I have been looking at the Cheerios Spoonful of Stories site to see when the new contest will start. Once it does start I will let you guys know here on the blog.
I am approaching plot point two in my sci-fi story. Plot point two is usually the second reveal of information that helps the protagonist in his, her, or it’s goal to beat the antagonists plans. Plot point two is when the protagonist learns something that is vital about the antagonist that allows the protagonist to shift from being reactive to pro-active. Before this the protagonist knew what had to be done, but had no clue how to do it. This plot point reveal helps to change that.
Well that’s it for me this week and so until next time…William out!
