Writing Wrap-Up I

I’ve decided to start a weekly wrap-up (at least I hope I can keep it weekly) that summarizes my writing experiences. This will include a listing of all blog posts for the week and my experiences writing the Miscorrection series. Hopefully you like my picture pun that accompanies this post. And if you could care less about the wrap-up below, I hope each week's picture is enough to make you visit each Sunday. There's nothing like a good wrap!

This week I wrote five blog posts. Most of these were generic. In other words, they just relayed information and didn’t give much of my personal thoughts. They included posts about self-publishing for Nook using the PubIt! system, and information about Miscorrection being available on Smashwords. All of these relayed information and scattered within the posts are some of my reasonings on why I found these items interesting.

Breaking Miscorrection Into Smashwords

Press Release Announcing Miscorrection On Smashwords

I also wrote a book review this week for Disintegration by Scott Nicholson. As with all my book reviews, I don’t give away the story. But I do list what I liked about it, what I didn’t like about it, and what I loathed about it. Finally, I summarize my overall feeling on the book.

The final post I made was entitled “The Fiction of Being Real” and it talks about my thoughts on creating a believable universe in a story.

The Fiction of Being Real

Finally, my writing of the fourth novelette in the Miscorrection series went well this week. Currently I am halfway through writing the story. I have found that as I continue to write, it become easier to write quicker. Also, I had an experience in the writing that was fantastic. At the very moment the main character had a revelation about something important to the story, I felt as if I experienced it with the character. It made everything more real, and the experience influenced me to write the above post on my blog, “The Fiction of Being Real”.

That sums up the week in writing. I realize I’m writing more and more and it is becoming more natural for me to express my thoughts. And I’m able to do it quicker. I’ve done all of this between going to work, spending time with my family, and handling other responsibilities. I’m not quite sure how I am finding the time, but I am. It will be interesting to see what the next week of posts brings!

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!

Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

I'd like to give you something to occupy your time while you wait this thing out. So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
