am writing a lot more now. A lot of this has to do with updating
my web pages. I keep thinking of better page designs to try out,
and I have to have articles wherever possible. To write those articles
and web pages, I now try to get into "the zone"... and
not worry so much about whether something is perfect or not. I used
to worry about that too much.
I just get the writing done, and come back and fix it later. To
get things done finally is so exciting. I hope these links can help
get YOU excited about writing, too.
THE WRITING LINKS:
the right, there are some websites that I will check out this week
to make sure they still are pointing in the right direction.
think that the best one here is the Auto-Critique site. It's all
done automatically, but you would hardly know it.
really like the Secrets Podcast. The author goes through many important
lessons for writers in podcast form. You can download these to your
MP3 player or just to your computer desktop. I
like these podcasts because he really tells you in detail how he
writes - and tries to help the beginning writer. It's a lot like
a free class.
ABOUT STEPHEN KING:
have to put this on here... I think Stephen King is a GREAT writer.
I just finished listening to the tapebook of a story I never read.
It was Dreamcatcher. It had great elements - - aliens, friendship,
a mystery - - bravery, and what true friendship means. Of course,
Mr. King wove ESP into there as well. It was so enjoyable I hated
to hear it end.
STEPHEN KING WEBSITE:
is Stephen King's official website link. I have been there several
times. You can make comments there, plus it has a neat menu area.
Try running your cursor or mouse over the titles. I like that effect!
FUNNY THING ABOUT THE COMMENTS AREA:
Stephen King website has a comment area - - and somebody else comments
on the comments - - and answers questions there. I could swear that
the person sounded almost JUST like Stephen King himself sometimes...
but that person must just know him pretty well - or bother him a
lot for all those personal answers.
are my online blogs. One is a personal blog, and the other is the
blog I write about non-traditional students. I really felt different
this time when I was back in school, so I started a non-traditional
student club in order to make friends. Now that I'm out of school,
I still want to help, so I have a website
about non-traditional students that I take care of. I am putting
non-traditional groups on right now so people can find out what
different colleges and universities are offering for non-trads.
try to write for each blog at least once every two weeks. Sometimes
I go on a roll and write more than once a week. Eventually, I want
to move the blogs to my website page so everything can be together,
and people can write there and comment on the blogs easier.
you go there, and try to make a comment, you don't have to register
on the site anymore. I fixed it so you can just hit the"anonymous"
PHOTOS FOR THE BLOG:
of the fun of having a blog for me is taking photos and putting
them on there. I hope to get some more photos and captions on the
blogs soon. You can see some of my photos to the right. Just click
on the pictures.
