CONTEST

Everyone loves something for free, right? I'm running a contest for a free Kindle ebook of my first cozy Fudge-Laced Felonies. Yes, this is two or three fold, I'm crazy that way. I'm hoping if you win book one, you'll run out and purchase books 2 & 3. After all, they're only 99 cents. Anyhoo, here's the contest.


Sign up to be a follower of my blog and I will enter you in a drawing for the free Kindle copy. Also, leave a comment on my blog of the best April Fool's prank you've ever pulled or had pulled against you. I might use it in a future book!

GETTING ON THE VLOGGING BANDWAGON


I'm hearing more and more about the benefits of vlogging (blogging except you're on camera speaking where all the world, if they should so desire, can see you), and after watching a talk show yesterday when I should have been writing...yes, I know. Anyway, the guests on the show were all making money off their youtube videos, which goes to show, I need to get on the vlogging bandwagon. If I can find a way to make money doing so, then more power to me, right? And, yes, before anyone says anything, this is a blog about writing tips and whatnot, but I did retitle it, CONFESSIONS OF A DYSFUNTIONAL WRITER, so don't blame me if I get off track.

Writing tip of the day: Write.

A LITTLE OF YOURSELF


Yes, the picture is a little gruesome, but it fits the post. Today's writing tip: Put a little of yourself into everything you write. Maybe not actually drip blood into your story, but put your feelings,your life experiences, your tears. The more emotion, the better the story. Writing is hard. If it were easy, more people would be doing it and becoming published.
