Down for the Count

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Well, I'm out of commission for a couple of days because of an elbow injury. Doc said take it easy on the computer for now so I'll be able to delve in and give my 30 days of crazy writing in November for NaNoWriMo.

Fingers crossed it'll be 100% working by then. Just one week to go.

This year, I plan to write through every day, even if I finish my NaNo novel. Markaza and M both need to be finished, too.

So, we shall see.

Anyway, I invite you to check out some of my archived posts during my couple of days out!

Here are some of the most popular ones according to my stat meter:

Dialogue Exercises - A short series with fifteen dialogue exercises to flex your muscles. Three on each link.

Punctuation Series - All about how to use various punctuation, according to the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th Edition.

The Period
Comma Part 1

Comma Part 3

Choosing a Viewpoint - Pros and Cons of different viewpoints.

lOOk at YoUr xXx series - How to maintain a cohesive online presence.

Your First 100 Words

Enjoy picking through the fun :)

Which ones do you like best?

I'll be back to give you some more tomorrow. Unless some of those authors impacted by the blogger blackout decide to take me up on my offer :)

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!



  1. Hey, I hope you recover from your maiming soon. I shall sacrifice a goat to Asclepius on your behalf.

    1. Sacrifice not working. Still feels like someone is driving nails into my elbow. :( How about a chicken? :) Thanks for the effort, Thaddeus :)

  2. I think, at one time, MS Word had some limited word recognition abilities. There is word recognition software out there that people with visual disabilities use for writing and email - I don't know how well it works from personal experience but you might want to look into it. Alana

    1. Thanks, Alana. I'm just gonna suffer through it. They said nothing is torn or broken, that it's all just irritated and out of whack. So... Here I am. LOL

  3. Feel better! And I cast my UtopYA poster vote =)

    1. Thanks, Heather :) I love both of those posters. How awesome are they? Whit and Ware did a great job.


Play nice and have fun. If you're a jerk, I won't publish your comment. My blog. My rules. Thanks for taking the time to chat at me!
