The Light at the End of the Tunnel . . . is Becoming A Little Bit Brighter

The focus of this blog is becoming clearer.  I can see categories, widgets, links, posts, pics, book reviews (mine and others).

Each week I’m learning more: what to do and what not to do.  Now I need to begin applying it.  Easy to say, a little more tricky to do.  It’s that <bleeping> thing called time.  It’s so very precious.  For those who never have to count your minutes, count your blessings my friends!

Until I can get this blog looking the way I want it to (which translates into having the blog “cooperate”, as some days it appears to have a mind of its own), I will share little snippets of info/advice.

My first snippet:

If you’re into writing, there are a lot of great writers groups to connect with.  One I’ve recently joined and recommend is best-selling author Mark Dawson’s SPF Community on Facebook.  They’re wonderful, helpful, and very supportive!  Just so you know, there are “house rules”, and I’m sure Mark won’t mind if I provide some here:

* No promotion, ever.  Promotional is anything that you stand to make a financial benefit from in your own capacity.  If you post promo, it’ll be removed without notice and you might be taken out of the group.

* Please do not solicit clients.

* Please don’t try and build a mailing list.

* Be kind. Be polite. Be supportive.

Mark also reminds us that this is a group where anyone can join; if you don’t want something shared publicly, however, it might be best you don’t share.

Author: tylerus

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
