Writing Links…6/12/17

Traci Kenworth



  2. Country details.

  5. The next book in the series.
  6. Is your book “the one?”

  2. You can get your favorite author on a book template.
  3. Fan friendly marketing and Kindle Worlds.
  4. Vampires among us?
  5. Do you get too many story ideas at once? I do. I’m forever putting them in journals.
  6. More hybrid authors.



  1. Ways to bring your villain to life.
  2. When do you pull stories out of the drawer? Personally, I’m re-working the first book I wrote. Why? There’s a gem there that keeps pulling me back.
  3. When to use passive voice and when not to.
  4. Brand image versus brand identity.
  5. It teaches you to use words with economy.



  1. David Bowie’s Black Star.
  2. Are you a cat or dog person? Or both?
  3. Do you find your eye drawn to a verse that means something to where you are or need to be at that moment? I do.
  5. I LOVE the Spring and Fall, but otherwise, I hate the heat and the cold. Well, not so much the cold as the snow. I’d rather it be cold than snowy or icy.
  6. Always strive to improve.
  7. Some thoughts on the older generation.
  8. Are you attending?
  9. Writing is hard. So true, “Chuck,” lol.

  13. Book photography.
  14. Want to write for TV?
