There are a bunch of great blog posts which I’ve read recently and I’m going to share a few here:


If you’ve ever wondered about Deep Point of View and how you get it into your story. Rhay Christou wrote a great blog post for Writers In the Storm about Deep Point of View. She is also teaching a class at the Margie Lawson Academy on Deep Point of View. Unfortunately, this session is totally sold out and beyond, but hopefully, she’ll offer it again in 2015. Her young adult novel, I Do Not, is forthcoming from Spencer Hill. You can read Rhay’s Deep Point of View blog post here.


Win a critique: Writers Helping Writers has just opened their monthly critique contest. These are the gals who wrote The Emotion Thesaurus, The Positive Traits Thesaurus and The Negative Traits Thesaurus. I won a first page critique from them last month on my sweet contemporary romance and it was very helpful.  Enter to win here. All genres (no erotica) accepted.

It’s NaNoWriMo time. (National Writing a Novel in a Month). I’m participating over at the Savvy Authors Entangled Smackdown where I’m on one of the Bliss Imprint teams and am working on drafting my sweet contemporary romance.  There are tons of blog posts and helpful webinars about writing this month. Here is a big list of everything from the NaNoWriMo website.
