Writing Wrap-Up III

It's that time again! Another week has gone and below is a summary of the week's posts on the site. And of course, that means another picture of a food wrap. This one looks delicious! So if you've missed anything this week, you can easily find what interests you below. Enjoy!

On Monday I started my first free flash fiction stories (how do you like that alliteration?). These are based on WordPress' Weekly Photo Challenge. I take the theme and photo they present and turn it into a story. It's not what they intend for the post, but it's how I'm using it. I plan to put these up every Monday of the week.

I then posted how to win a free copy of Arrogation from the Miscorrection series. This was a puzzle that wasn't too difficult. In the end, some solved the puzzle, but only one person took advantage of the offer. Even though the offer has expired, I've left the puzzle on the site in case people want to try it out in the future.

My next two posts were the blog's statistics for the past month and the weekly poll. The weekly poll is in regards to smartphones and what you prefer. So if you haven't had a chance, vote in the poll to share your thoughts.

I then posted about my concern with writing. I feel I need to be careful that I deliver quality over quantity in my writing. More of my thoughts can be found in the post.

Quality Over Quantity

Finally, I posted a book review. This one was for The Accidental Time Machine  by Joe Haldeman. Be sure to check it out.

And that's it for the week. There's more to come next week. If you ever have anything you'd like to see on the site, let me know and I may just write about it.

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…
