My Discoveries and a Question
I mentioned how my husband was a great help to writing Rock Star. I've decided that I've run him into the ground and need to get off my little fanny and do some big time research. While I was doing some online digging for Rock Star, I ran across a few cool sites I think you would LOVE!
One of them is "Blog Like a Rock Star: 7 Rules for Your Blog World Tour". I thought, hmmm, not what I was looking for. It was extremely informative! I learned how to make my reads interesting and entertaining and informative without bogging down my fans!
Another very interesting site I've come across is how to outsmart groupies! I found this fascinating and I just may have to refer to it once all of my books hit the NYT bestsellers list! ;) We all know that is what Stephenie Meyer has done.
I am still riding the wave and learning more and more about rock stars. (I shiver from the things I've read on groupie gossip!)
You know, the funny thing is, as an artist, I make sure I time stamp every sketch. But I don't my novels until my latest one. Oops. I've been writing since the dawning of my life and I have never once thought to time stamp it. And guess what? When one computer dies and you save it to another, it changes the 'created' date! (Unless you know of an ancient Chinese secret to find out when the thing was really born, please share!)
I can only guestimate his birthday around September 2008. :(
*Bowing and smiling* Thank you for dropping by to see me! Luv ya!
What kind of interesting things have you come across while doing research for your books? How do you keep track of when you create your writing project? And most importantly! (Something I run into all the time). Do you write first while the muse speaks or research first so that what you write makes logical sense as you write?
Don't forget my spotlight/coverart contest ends this Saturday--don't miss it! ;)
