Just a quick post of congratulations to my friend Samantha LaFantasie on becoming a USA Today Best-Seller for being a part of the Pandora boxed set!
Check it out on her site!
She’s a hard-working writer, super mom, fantastic person, my good friend, and she’s based in Derby, Kansas. So fellow Kansans, give a local author some love! I watch her work tirelessly at her writing, book promotion & marketing, social media, and life. She’s kick ass just like her books. Or her books are kick ass like she is.
Support local authors, support indie authors!
What I really should say is, “my writer friends are so motivational,” because they just introduced me to this thing called writing sprints.
What is a writing sprint?
A writing sprint is when we writers sit down as a pair or group for a set amount of time and just bang out the writing togehter. At the end of the time period, we post our word count. It’s fun!
For example, someone posts in a Facebook group, “Anyone want to sprint?” I say yes. We agree to start at a certain time, for a certain span of time. For my first sprint, we started right then. Twenty minutes later, we each had about 350 words.
It was an easy get-off-your-ass-and-write move!
