Time to write, but watch out for word crimes!

Last week I shared some of my kids favorite videos. It was a great way to be here AND be there. You know what I mean? I could still dabble in blogging during that crazy first week of school. That week is over. We are mostly settled into our new routine, and it's time for me to get back to writing.

I've read over my draft of Talia's sequel. I even sent it to a friend begging her to muddle through it and tell me:

  • what's interesting
  • what's boring
  • what unanswered questions from book 1 do you still have

If any of YOU have read The Magic Wakes, what unanswered questions do you have? Now is the time to tell me so I can answer them in the next story.

All of this is in the hopes I can revise like crazy while drafting book three and four in the series. Hopefully I won't commit any major word crimes during the process. :)

Just in case you've missed it...

  2. Weird Al rocks.
    Some people say not to let readers dictate the next story, but I think the opposite is true. My stories improved because I listened to what my fans wanted.

    1. I agree Alex! I think its important to listen and make sure they're happy. The story will still go as I've planned, but if I can fill some gaps, so much the better.

  3. Hahahaha!!!! That was the funniest thing I've seen in a while. Weird Al is hilarious! As for your story, it has been so long since I read it that I can't think of unanswered questions right now, but if I do, I'll let you know! :)

  5. You guys start school so early (compared to us), but then again, you get out early, too. Good luck with your revisions.
