If we are friends on Facebook, you already know that I completed my NaNoWriMo novel on November 26th. I wrote the end of Wishing upon Earth and Bone right after reaching 50,000 words. At the moment, the first novel in AlmaMia Cienfuegos’ world is twenty-eight (skeletal) chapters long. I have to add descriptions, develop some scenes and smooth out the chapter to chapter transitions.
Now, to the mistake… *sigh* I don’t understand why so many people fly around the blogosphere without taking the time to read. Let me elaborate… Do you remember this? “If you are a Wicked Darling (you follow my personal blog, this blog, or both) and you want me to keep an eye on your short writings (and perhaps review them), grab the button… and participate. The latter is usually what gets me to visit (and remember) other people’s blogs and spread the yumminess I find there. Link the button to the original Short Fiction Reviews post.”
Are those instructions very complicated? Ridiculous question, I know. Well, let me tell you… I’ve received enough review requests (from strangers) to help me realize that announcing that I was going to review short fiction was a huge mistake. So… I removed the button. I will not stop reviewing and sharing the yummy works of my Wicked Darling Luvs. I’m just taking away the flashing sign.
This post got a bit too long for the “moi paddling forward” part. Don’t worry, I will tell you all about it in my next post. It has to do with the ebook I’m publishing on December 21st; something warm, dark, sweet and exciting for the Winter Solstice, my Wicked Luvs! *butterscotch-coated winks and giggles*
