How-to Tips for Aspiring Writers: Tips for those looking to get their work published/break into the industry.

#1 Be fearless

#2 Grow a thick skin. As Tom Hanks says, “There’s no crying in baseball! (A League of Their Own) Same goes for publishing.

#3 Be receptive to suggestions for improvement but take any advice with a grain of salt and always go with your gut.

#4 Check your ego at the door. No matter where you are in your writing career there’s always room for growth and improvement.

#5 Don’t throw in the towel. Each rejection should fuel your determination not to give up and to continue honing your craft.

#6 If you can do all of the above, then start studying. Read blogs about the publishing industry—find out what books are selling. Read the craft of writing blogs. Join a writing organization. Join a critique group. Learn from published authors, then put all that knowledge to work and write.


#7 Don’t beat a manuscript to death. If your work has received several rejections even after you’ve revised according to an editor or agent’s suggestions and the book is still being rejected then put it aside and begin a new one.  You’ll be surprised by how much your writing improves with each new book.

 A DIFFERENT KIND OF HERO 

Everyone knows Victor Vicario—he's the scarred loner who's on his way to the National Finals Rodeo in Vegas. But no one knows about the guilt that drives him. And until he achieves his goal, there's no room in his life for attachments. 

So when Vic is given temporary custody of his young nephew, he is torn. He can't turn his back on family, but how can he look after a kid when he's traveling the rodeo circuit? Then he runs into feisty barrel racer Tanya McGee and makes her an offer. She helps him with Alex, and he'll pay her rodeo expenses. The problem is their little "family" starts to feel all too real.

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
