Sorry for the lack of title - I've been sick for the past few days and the constant crappy feeling and lack of sleep have destroyed the creative brain cells. (Not permanently I hope;) Anyway, I wanted to share a few things with you since I didn't blog this past week.
1. PSA - Back up your files! Don't be like me and backup once every.....whenever and wake up one morning to find your hard drive has crashed. Yep, happened to me. Luckily my sister let me borrow her laptop until I got mine fixed, but I wanted to curl up and die a little inside when I checked my flash drive and realized I hadn't backed up my WIP lately. Much love and hugs and cupcakes to my wonderful CP Tina Lynn who had the chapters I thought I'd lost forever.
2. I'm participating in the What's Your Process Blogfest this Tuesday, January 18th. Shallee at Life, the Universe, and Writing is hosting it. You can blog about any part of your writing process - how you develop characters, how you push through a rough draft, how you plot a novel, how you edit, or anything else you can think of to share. Sign the linky at her blog if you'd like to participate.
3. Speaking of the writing process, I read this blog post by Janice Hardy that made me go DOH! (I srsly did NOT realize that Kitchen Table Convo scenes were so cliche! Ugh!) Anyway, it really helped me to generate some ideas for getting my characters out of the kitchen (Yes, I did have two characters having a convo at the kitchen table. *facepalm*) Now that I'm thoroughly embarrassed for sharing that, check out the post. It's great!
So what's been happening with you this week? Have you learned anything new? Do you have any news to share?
