May ushers in Spring, blooming trees and bulbs, new life, and so much more. It's the month to honor women/mothers, celebrate the accomplishments of high school and college graduates, remember those who've given their lives while in military service to our country.
With all of this happening, who's writing? Admittedly, things do seem to slow down about this time of the year in the literary world. Never fear...it will gear up again in June as new beach reads release and authors start thinking about holiday books.
Paper and pen (or computer and blank screen) are your friends. I encourage you to do character bios and chapter outlines...remembering to use the Who, What, When, Where, Why and How method. The more information you can get down, the more solid it will be. Soon you will find you have a strong foundation to build your story, create your fictional world.
Just a reminder to those of you still looking for an editor...I do have openings in June, July, and August, but slots are filling up fast. If you'd like to get on my calendar, please contact me as soon as possible so I can reserve time for your manuscript.
Looking foward to meeting and helping you create a stellar manuscript.
Until next month, keep writing!
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
