Fun With Miss Snark or Janet Reid's Winter Writing Contest

I don't have an agent. Have looked high and low, but no takers just yet.

Do follow a couple or three of them, got to keep up on the book biz.

Miss Snark, AKA Janet Reid, has always been one that has excellent advice.

Had fun a few years back when I informed her that a SNARK was a US missile from the 1950s.

Here's the link, get in on the contest!

Time? What Time?

Will you look at the how it's passed me by, another year gone.

Great writing is timeless. So we are told. I've been busy doing all those recommended things that need to be done to become more social, as in being on social sites. Which is important to anyone who wants to be published in the Internet Age.

The question is, how much time must you spend on the social sites, which multiple like rabbits, to 'get the word out' about your writing? If you spend all day working on your Facebook, Google+, Reddit, Twitter, Instagram, Sh**tbucket...oh, wait, that's not a social site, at least not of this posting. How the hell do you have time for writing?

I won't even go into the rest of the fun and games, but I'm still kicking. The book has been rewritten, twice, in the meantime. It's ready to go.

On to the next step.
