Project #WriteTube Announcement!

These last couple of weeks I feel like I always have something new to announce. This time it’s something that’s happening on YouTube!

I’m collaborating with 11 other content creators. Over the course of the month we’ll be posting a video M/W/F. Each one will have be answering a different question. No two questions are the same. Some of them are about NaNoWriMo and others are about writing in general.

Here’s a video to tell you more:

And…just in case you’re interested, here’s the calendar of events!

 

Btw, be ready for a deluge of poetry! It’s time again for OctPoWriMo! I’ll be posting a poem per day and if you want to join in the fun, definitely check out the web site!

About writing and editing

http://penpaperpad.com

If you see this pop up on your feed, you know it’s time for a #writestuff Google Hangout!

 

Last night was another edition of #writestuff TweetChat. This time, we did a Google Hangout with Maya Goode, Burgess Taylor, and Amy Taskutada. It’s interesting how every time I do a GoogleHangout there’s some type of technical difficulty. Is this just me, or do y’all experience this as well? Regardless, we talked about our writing goals, our experiences in April and how we like to edit our works.

 

Aloha y’all!

And the plot thickens…

Last week’s writing videos and Camp NaNo wrap-up videos focused on plot. It’s incredibly important for a novel to have certain points in the story to keep it moving forward. Not all novels are created equal, however, I’ve decided to implement some of the 8 point plot arc so that I can keep my story moving forward. Here’s the video where I tell more about what that is and what it means.

Then I gave an update on my CampNaNo journey. (Did you remember I was still doing it? Maybe not. I haven’t done the best job of posting updates on here, have I? Sorry I’ll get better!) I talk about what’s going on with my writing, how the inciting incident had to be discovered, and just all the things.

Thanks for watching everyone and being involved. Let me know how your writing is going, regardless of what you’re working on.

Aloha y’all!
