Almost There

The weekly wrap. I have no idea of the subject matter or the frequency I want to apply to the blog posts. I do know that I’m not going to get caught in the same trap from ten years ago of blogging my fingers off. That’s what FB is for. 🙂 So, here’s the weekly wrap relative to my world as a full-time writer. Let’s see if this works out.

On Wednesday, my webpage went live. The universe didn’t end and hiccups with it proved to be minor. Thanks to all who have visited, commented, or signed up for the blog roll.

On Thursday, I reviewed Shelia Rudesill’s literary novel, Transmutare. Good stuff.

On Saturday, I learned about Concentration Music, available on YouTube (and I assume other sources), from writer Bill Bartlett. Check it out if you can’t focus on your writing.

On Sunday, I ran across this interesting flowchart for those (including me) who suffer from writing bad query letters. Writers need ever shrapnel of help to succeed.

On Sunday, I said, “Enough is enough.” All the editing that I can possibly do on “Kill All Cats” is done. Anything more is just pushing words that could possibly create damage elsewhere in the story. And now, here comes the begging. I’m a one-man band when it comes to marketing, and I’m not that good at that instrument. Sure, I have things I’m doing, but the New York Times isn’t likely to give me some space on the review page. So, if you have a lead for where I can display my books, read to protesting cat lovers, or get reviewed, drop me a line. Much appreciated.

And let’s be careful out there. Pencil points are sharp.

  1. Wish I could help – beyond moral support, which truthfully goes only so far – but I am worse at marketing than you are…Love the flowchart, especially the item “Does your query insult…”

  2. I ‘liked’ and ‘shared’ as much as I could. I appreciate your writing and your positive attitude and your will work ethic and your humor. And I will read Kill All Cats but I just can’t ‘share’ that horrible vicious cat photo on Facebook. Too many cat lovers. You deserve to be recognized for your tremendous talent. Good luck, Rick! And thanks for the review!
