My Week in Review and Writing Links

Hello everyone. Happy Friday! Another busy but productive week. I’ve done more writing on short stories along with lots of other stuff. I had one of those moments, when reading over what you wrote the day before, and you think, ‘Wow. Did I write that?’ I’m so thrilled with it, I want to share it here … I give the preceding paragraph so that the line is in context …


Distraught yet at a complete loss, she dragged herself up the stairs and crawled back into bed, where she lay listening for hours. Apart from the rhythmic ticking of the clock, which echoed throughout the high-ceilinged house, she heard nothing out of the ordinary. Not even creaking floor boards. Or the house settling.

In fact, the house had become eerily quiet. As if all its animals had gone to ground, sensing a predator.


I also got all my paperbacks moved from Createspace to KDP in one easy move … it took seconds! And a little longer to link the paperback editions to the ebooks on my dashboard for a few of them. Nicholas Rossis has a great step-by-step post on making the switch, which you’ll find below. Well worth checking it out. I won’t have a Friday post next week, as I’ll be on holiday … only an hour and a half away but vastly reducing my time on the web, lol. 

This week’s quote came ready-made, so no playing in Photoshop this time, and I love it.

Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you in a couple of weeks. Here are this week’s writing links and resources:

Great writing, Harmony. I especially love the last line 🙂

I moved my single print indie title this week, thanks to Nicholas Rossi’s post and was thrilled with how easy it played out. I was dreading that move, but–wow!–easily done. He always has excellent advice and how-to posts.

Wishing you an awesome time away.

I need to go look at Nicholas’ tutorial about moving the books. He is such a great teacher. I loved the writing snippet you shared. It is full of impactful imagery!

Staci Troilo

That’s a lovely quote, Harmony. And I understand why you’re thrilled with the lines you wrote. Strong stuff; great imagery. Nicely done.

Thanks for including my RU post in you list. I suspect we’ll chat before you leave for vacation, but if not, have a safe and relaxing holiday.

Gwen Plano

What a great excerpt! And, thank you for sharing the links. I look forward to checking them out. Have a wonderful, joyful, restful holiday!

CS Boyack

Have a great time away.
