Asking for advice!

Asking for advice!

I’ve just put up two one-shot stories under the collection title of Promptings. It’s under Short Stories. But my short stories aren’t a collection; they are actually multi-chapter stories, anywhere from two to nine chapters. So, should the one-shots be collected under short stories or as individual stories under One-Shots? Please give me some advice, either here, on Twitter, or on Tumblr. Many thanks!

I have lots of Kudos!

I have lots of Kudos!

With the premiere of The Incredibles 2, I’ve noticed a lot of notifications from An Archive of Our Own for my short story, “The Visit”. That particular archive allows guests or signed-in members to leave “kudos” on any story. This is the first time a short story of mine at AO3 has generated such interest and I’m chuffed about it! From the comments, it seems I’ve been able to satisfactorily wrap up a plot thread from the first movie: what…

The story is not finished yet, but…

I posted the first chapter! It’s not betaread yet, so if you see any problems–whether they’re grammar, spelling, or possible canon errors–let me know. I’m really, really excited about it! I’m sure I won’t get any responses at my site, but I might at Tumblr or Facebook. Also, if anyone is interested in betareading (that’s proofreading/editing for those outside the fanfiction community) I’d be incredibly grateful. I haven’t sent this to my usual beta because I’m not sure how well-versed she…

Almost caught up.

Almost caught up.

Current word count is 7877. Not quite the 8333 listed for day 5, but nearly caught up. I have a bit over 2000 to reach 10K, which is Sunday’s goal. Had a really well-attended write-in at a coffee house in Simpsonville. Thirteen people (other than myself) were there. One drawback: we couldn’t get online. This isn’t normally a problem but when you’re supposed to be having a virtual write-in for every physical one, you’re not sure just who you’re disappointing….

Plot bunnies ahoy!

Plot bunnies ahoy!

I usually keep a note book or a pad of paper by my bed, along with a pen or two. As many other authors probably do, I find I get the most interesting ideas just as I’m settling in to bed and the writing materials allow me to jot the ideas down before I lose them. (If I don’t write them down, I most certainly will lose them by the time I get up!)  Of course, whether or not I…

Putting meat on the bones

Putting meat on the bones

Edits and additions from this post.  I put some meat on those bare bones but I still don’t know if Lady Penelope lives or dies! The prompt is again in blue. Feedback is very welcome. “As one of the hundreds of people who have tried to kill you at one time or another, I can attest to your tenacious refusal to die, milady.” Copyright secured by Digiprove © 2014 Linda BennettAll Rights ReservedOriginal content here is published under these license terms: X License Type:Read OnlyLicense Abstract:You may read the…

I really wish I knew CSS!

I really wish I knew CSS!

Or actually thought before I acted. First, my primary menu disappeared again. I have no idea why; I’m working in a child theme and all but just like the last time, it went poof! I’ve had to rebuild the verdammt thing all over again! Maybe styling it would help? Might have to try that. Then I stupidly did a bulk action of delete spam to some comments that a non-functioning Askimet dumped in with the real comments. So now I…

Some interesting Tumblr blogs

Some interesting Tumblr blogs

I’ve submitted an OC profile–that of Rhea Allison Tracy, from Moonstrike!–to a couple of OC blogs on Tumblr. The latest, Simply Original Characters, seemed to like the profile. She did point out the number of hobbies Rhea has, which I hadn’t even thought about before. The number could be seen as excessive, I guess, given how driven Rhea is as a character. Still, I have her doing at least two of them in the story so far, so I can…

Warm fuzzies

Warm fuzzies

I received an email today from a reader who lives in Australia. She wanted to thank me for writing The White Winds and for being an influence on her own writing. She said… …although you had no idea you were doing it, even just reading your stuff taught me the importance of making sure all your facts are right, that you spelling and editing is good, and that it doesn’t matter how long it takes you writing something as long…
