I received a surprise in the mail yesterday. A nice check from Adam's Media. I have a story coming out in their Christmas anthology later this year. It's unusual to get a check before the story goes to print, I've found. So getting it beforehand was nice.
I'm also working on editing my WIP. Sentence by sentence. Groan. The book suggested by an ACFW to use for editing came last week and I've been reading it while I do it. You never know everything in this business. What struck me yesterday is how much more difficult it is to write fiction than non-fiction. I never think about keeping my character's name the same when I write articles--cause usually I use the real name and it's a no-brainer.Something to watch with fiction--as well as getting all the four senses set in all the scenes, and a host of other details that just keep coming out of the walls.
It is a process for sure. But I'm enjoying the learning.
I also started working on a website yesterday http://www.territiffany.wordpress.com after looking at the one my critique partner did. I still need to learn how to put pictures on it and do the pages properly but hey, it's free, it gives me a place to put my writing information and if ever I get a book accepted--it is all set up. I think one of my blogger friends suggested doing that and I do take advice.
Hope your week is flooded with opportunities. What are you working on now?
