My friend Lois Winston and I spent Friday and Saturday driving to and from Rhode Island where we met the wonderful Rhode Island Romance Writers. It was a blast meeting these delightful women and talking with them about writing. We had lively discussions and great food. The only wonkiness to the whole event was the remnants of Hurricane Noel which hit us on the ride home. Even my low-slung Sebring convertible wobbled with the strong blasts of wind hitting the coast!
Listening to Lois’s workshop as well as Hannah Howell’s talk about hooks inspired me. I’ve got a great idea for a new opening line to my work-in-progress and plan to start on a new proposal shortly. But before I did that, I decided to do some retail therapy and also, add some fun — hence the wonkiness — to the website.
So what new little fun things can you find on the site now? Here’s a list of some of the things I’ve added:
- Daily horoscopes on the Paranormals page
- Publishing-related jobs on the Resources for Writers page
- Literary news on the Resources for Writers page
- Mets news on the sidebar of the blog
- Quote of the day on the sidebar of the blog
- Countdown to Halloween on the sidebar of the blog
Also did something else I’m very excited about! I’ve created a widget so that you can load my blog on your site. Want to see how it looks? Visit either www.caridad.com or www.thecallingvampirenovels.com to see.
