Something For Writers...

Hey all! I hope you're having a good week so far.

Now, I usually don't push books on here unless I've reviewed them or someone has contacted me to join a virtual tour. Anything on my own is slightly unusual, but not unheard of. On that note, I want to share a book link with you all that has helped me SO much this weekend.

It's for this book right here:

You can find the e-book on Amazon for just .99 cents.

I read the introduction about a week ago, then put it down because it was late at night and I didn't want to get sucked in.

Then, the other night, I pulled it up again, just before bed and well, got sucked in. Ha!

I'm currently writing a short story based on the first prompt, I've figured out what to do with two other stories I've been mulling over in my brain for some time now and I haven't read this book beyond the first prompt.

I love it!

A friend of mine also downloaded it when it was on Bookbub listed as free and she's been working with the prompts just about every day. I've been handwriting the one short story and have been writing almost every day myself. It's helped me a lot. So, if you don't have it, give it a whirl. It's a good deal!

Have a good rest of your week!

Do you like writing prompts? Why or why not? Do you look for them in a book or online?

What I've Been Doing...

So I'm trying to get back into my writing groove. The whole tricking myself, or rewarding myself has been working. The other night I got an idea in my head and was watching TV, so I quick grabbed one of my many notebooks and wrote it down.

Now, I call these flash fiction pieces because they're super short and you get the idea of the story being told. It is helping me enhance my story-telling. I'm trying to get more in depth details of the surroundings as well as the people, because apparently that is something I am lacking. Which, is true, and I'm trying to change that.

The last piece I did with the pirate battle has been one of my best, so far. The one I wrote the other night is still in my notebook, but it's kind of sad, so I'll wait to share that one. So far, all of this has sparked my writing once more and I am trying to take the time to work on things.

I have a zombie story in my brain. It's basically a dystopian style, but it is definitely something I have never done before. I'm trying to figure out the tone of it all, but I think it would be a hit, especially if I can incorporate all the details I see in my mind's eye.

Wish me luck!

So what do you have waiting in the wings? What are your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to writing?
