Sunday Post & Giveaways Galore – 11/12/17

November 12, 2017 Sunday Post 34

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.

This past week on FYFA (and in my life):

I’m falling behind on NaNo already!! Yikes! Help! I love my book concept, but I’ve finished up the first act, and I’m having trouble figuring out where to go to get me to the third. Plus, I feel like maybe I’m trying to smush too many things into this one? I need inspiration! (Think I need to binge watch some TV—seriously, I think it might help!)

Anyway, besides NaNo, we had a sort of rough week in our household, and I’m kind of glad it’s over. Moving on to happier days…

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week:

    This just happened to me with NaNo! I got to the end of the first act and I was all, “Okay, great! Now what?” *doh* Anyway, I had to think logically. They just got themselves in a huge mess and now had to get out of the city. What obstacles would they have to overcome to make that happen? And then I started writing again. So look at your turning point at the end of the first act. What new, immediate problems does that create? Then ask some questions and use the “No, but; Yes, and” technique to answer them. Mary Robinette Kowal just put up an infographic on this the other day! https://www.patreon.com/posts/yes-but-no-and-15244550

    So much yes to all these fun giveaways. I must enter some of them. I’m sorry you had a bit or a rough week – I hope this week is better and you get lots of great inspiration for your work. You’re doing great!! 🙂

    I’m sorry you’re stuck with your writing. I actually wrote something the other night that was just going to be a one-pager for one of the HOHOHO Readathon challenges and it turned out much, much longer. I was getting stuck just writing that. I keep saying I want to write my novel, but I think I would be getting stuck a lot, too.

    I’m sorry it’s been a rough week at home. I hope this week is better.

    Sorry it has been a rough week. Hopefully this one will be better. TV is always good for distracting- hope you find some good shows to binge on!

    Ohhh I can’t wait to see what you think of Island of Exiles. I struggled with it personally. I wasn’t able to connect to any of the characters and the constant rank/names confused the ever living life out of me BUT it was such a unique book and I really have been wanting to see someone love it. Fingers crossed that book works much better for you!
