Writing Snacks and Author Groups
I have writing snacks. Not all of them healthy. OK, none of them are healthy. I enjoy a nice glass of sweet tea, mostly. It doesn't matter if it's cold or hot outside. I just want tea. I also enjoy Little Debbie's Nutty Bars. Peanut Butter and Chocolate, guys! C'mon!
Recently, a new snack has captured my taste buds. Skittles!
I've always enjoyed Skittles, but the fruity flavored candy has never been my go-to. The boys got these for Christmas and they're too hard for them to chew. (Lucky me!) So, I took them over and I ain't sharing!
Recently, I've made a goal of being more active on my blog this year, as well as participate more in writing groups. I'm in a few of them, but sometimes they can be overwhelming. One of the groups has a few thousand people in it. Before the kids, and Covid, I was in a writing group that would meet at my local library. That all changed for the previously listed reasons so I had to venture onto social media to find likeminded individuals.
The one group I have connected with the most is Global Writing Community. It's small and I talk to a lot of the same authors. I find comfort in that. I need accountability and motivation. They have that in spades.
One of the features I love about the group is the daily questions. I try my best to answer as many as possible. I've even submitted some of my own to help out. Here is one example of what is asked in the group.
Some of the questions asked have shaped and reshaped my writing. I find this helpful with my character development and overall story plot. If you're an author, at any stage in your career, I invite to check out their group. Come join us!
Moving on to TikTok, that strange and beautiful app that is beyond my comprehension. Am I still using it? Yes. Do I know what I'm doing? No. Are people interacting with me? Yes! So, I call that a win! If you want to see the content you're missing out on over there, here ya go:
Stay safe and be kind.
