Speed with One Finger

So I've been using my NookColor at the shop to continue writing my Ardor story and it's growing and growing. I have to keep reminding myself that I am not writing a novel here, just a story, but the characters are not cooperating with that. Also, they are playing games with me. For instance, one character was supposed to be wounded. But when the scene played out under my very fast finger on the touch keyboard, it turned out that it was the other main character that got injured instead. WTF? The characters are determined to write their own story and I'm just along for the ride. It's turning into a fun ride though. Since life is a roller coaster, I have included roller coaster pics today...

Sharing Writing/Publishing Tips

Two documents that I found valuable were published in the past week, so I'm sharing the URLs here if you are also interested.  

First, Storm Constantine had a wonderful article on how to get a fantasy book published.  Check it out on her blog here:

And next, there was a great post on Creating Space for your Writing that was found by Lynn Flewellen and passed on in her LJ.  Check out that link here:
