    Life has gotten crazy for me. So I have to put my website tutorial posts on hold. I’ll try my best to stick to the rest of my schedule. Stay tuned to hear when I get back on track.

    Take a Break: A Note of Encouragement

    ‘ello. If you participated in National Novel Writing Month (Nano, or Nanowrimo) you are probably exhausted. Even if you didn’t I’m sure you have been working hard. I want say just one thing to you all: It is okay to take a break. Especially around the holidays it can be hard to fit in your writing time. You might find a stolen hour here or there to write or edit, but they are few and far between. But remember: It is okay to take a break. The words you write come from your mind, and if your mind is not healthy, you cannot write. So taking a break will help…

    Pep Talks: A Note of Encouragement

    I do not Nano. I have tried several times and I always fail. So I have accepted that I cannot Nano. But I still participate. And I still love all of the resources that they have. In fact, whether you Nano or not, you should check out the Pep Talks on the Nano website.

    It’s Not a Competition: A Note of Encouragement

    One of the things I love most about the writing community is that we all help and lift each other. When I need help, encouragement, or just someone to talk to who understands–my writer friends are there. It is not like a retail company. One has to work to be better to beat out the competition. Writing is different. All creative endeavors are different. Because it is not a competition. Annika Spalding composed a beautiful and inspiring blog post on this subject. Go read it. I hope it inspires you, too.

    Catch Up Review and What to Expect Next

    ‘ello, since it appears I missed the August review post, this will cover August and September. Also, I talk about what I have planned next. Finished up my Author Website in 10 Easy Steps series, and posted a review to help you easily access the information. I also talked about what to do if you are still overwhelmed by the website thing. Life happened. I lost someone close to me in August, and it derailed me. I’m back on track now. I was presented with many opportunities, which mean I will have less time to give this blog for a short while. The author memes, and encouraging notes, and indie…

    Bonus Randomness from Krista

    I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I should write next. I have a series that needs one more book. I have the first book in a series ready to release but I’m not sure I want to be tied to it for the next little while. And I’d like to try something different like a romance, or something meatier like a full-length fantasy novel. So, do I go with my obligation to finish my series? Do I publish that first book and then feel obligated to work on that series? Or do I write what I want to? But you see, I would like my writing to make…
