One Page Synopsis

If like me you have problems writing one page synopsis’, then this might be of help.

Amanda Patterson, of Writers Write, has produced this info graphic to help people write them:

This does reference the Basic Plot Structure, available here: http://writerswrite.co.za/basic-plot-structure-the-five-plotting-moments-that-matter. I know I definitely need to use this since I am horrible at writing synopsis’ and I hope this helps others.

Lack of Posts

I am so sorry for the lack of posts on here. It was not my intention for me to suddenly stop posting on here but unfortunately, job hunting, applications and finding new places to hunt for jobs is taking up a lot of my time and when I finally do give up hunting for the day, I find myself  unable or unwilling to post or write anything on here.

I apologise wholeheartedly and will be aiming to post at least once week, every week, even if it is just a reblog.

Thank you for your patience.

Camp NaNoWriMo 2014

Just a quick post.

Not sure what made me do it but just had a look at the Camp NaNoWriMo website and found out that this years camp sessions are April and July.

Am I participating this year? I don’t know. I’m currently job hunting (with no luck) and still need to get on with editing and re-writing my novel. I’m not going to say I am not doing this years session(s). I said I wasn’t going to do November and what happened? I did (and failed) November!

So I am going to play it by ear, see what happens and go from there but what about anyone else? Doing Camp this year?
