I Did A Thing. Incorrectly.

Most writers (aspiring and otherwise) on Twitter know about the pitch party opportunities, which occur several times a year. Yesterday was one such event called #DVPit.

Is my manuscript even pitchable at this point in time? Eh, not 100%, no. And so even considering participation in this event was foolish. That should’ve been my first clue.

But I tweeted anyway.

However, that’s not the part I did incorrectly.

Wednesday Wisdom #9

It’s the last Wednesday in April? Already? Wowzers.

This has nothing to do with anything, but it always makes me laugh. Maybe it will inspire your next novel or something. Well, here you go.



Hope April treated you well.

*Here’s a bonus to help transition you into a new month:

Where Author and MC Meet: Part Five

Just to recap (who doesn’t love a good recap? It’s like on TV shows, when the episode starts, “Previously on…” I live for that stuff since my memory sucks.), I’ve shared that Lily and I share a profession, we have the same favorite book and love of romantic comedies, and we have opposing views on fate.

We also share a certain personality trait: living in the past.

Where have I been?

Fear not. I have returned.

You know, it’s of little consequence I’ve been absent from this blog for most of April so far. However, I’ll let you know how I’ve been spending my waking hours on the off chance someone may actually read this and wish to know. Ha.

I got a new job. Sort of.

I’m not working for the government or anything, but the work I’m involved with is treated in the same way as top secret, behind closed doors, White House dealings. What I can tell you is I’m what’s called a Rater for the educational company, Pearson. This basically means I’m scoring student essays from 8:30 to 5:00. And that’s all I can say about it. 😛

Wednesday Wisdom #8

Do you watch Ted Talks? You should. Seriously. You can start right now.

I’m an introvert and have been for as long as I can remember. I think introversion is often misunderstood. And it’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, wondering if I’m insanely flawed. Because being an introvert is such a strong part of me, expect more posts related to introverts in the future.

This video attempts to shed some light on this topic. Enjoy.
