Time after Time – Post Magic?

It’s been almost a month since I’ve had this much interest in my blog…Daily Prompt: Time after Time has pulled into many more new visitors and views.

My stats show that February 11th was my all-time best day for views. Almost all of those were from a cross-post I made in a group I belong to in Facebook on Free Ebook: Photography 101. Obviously, the nexus of “free” and a Facebook group that is interested in the topic was the magic-sauce, but that doesn’t happen often.

This was not the first time I’ve responded to a Daily Prompt, but I think that the combination here was the connection between time, family and traditions that was the “post magic” recipe. Filing under lessons learned and hopefully, I’ll be able to “cook up” more magical recipes for viewership!

Caught in the Act (of Reading): Edwin Turner, Master Book Thief

Luv the title and concept…to be a good writer, you need to read, a lot!

The WordPress.com Blog

Book lovers, lock your libraries: a voracious reader is among us. We recently chatted with Edwin Turner, the mastermind behind Biblioklept, a popular literary blog dedicated to books, art, and the ways in which the two shape our world. Join us for a conversation with Ed about blogging, literature, and finding a sense of community through the solitary act of writing.

Why did you start Biblioklept?

In September of 2006 two friends suggested I start a blog. I thought the idea of blogging was kind of silly, but I started Biblioklept as a WordPress.com blog after doing some basic research into the various platforms out there. Then I started writing. And then I became addicted.

How did you come up with the intriguing name?

I think it was just there, waiting for me. Like a lot of people who read, I keep lists of words — I mean…

Super quick screenwriting update

In just a few words…Wow! I didn’t really know what to expect after writing all these years, but it wasn’t this!

Just 8 days and two teleclasses into this process and I feel my creative juices springing into action…six months, I can only imagine.

What class or classes have you taken that really lit you up?

Starting screenwriting class today!

I’ve been waiting…semi-patiently…for the start of my six-month class in screenwriting that begins today!

Now that the waiting part is over, time to get down to brass tacks and actually begin writing a screenplay. After talking over my concept with a friend recently, I may make this a pilot for a TV series, rather than a movie…but time will tell, don’t need to pigeon-hole myself into one format or another at this junction.

I’ll keep my reader (you) informed as to my progress and post some of my work as I progress. So, stay tuned for more!

Here’s a teaser as a poster.
