When someone talks about the advantages of video blogging for your author platform does your heart start to race with that how-am-I-going-to-find-time-to-learn-another-new-thing feeling? First you’d have to figure out what technology you need, then you’d have to buy it, and then you’d have to learn how to use it.
Or you could just sign up for Google+.
So I went into <i>Transformers: Age of Extinction</i> (movie #4) not expecting much. I only went because my husband loves the special effects and REALLY wanted to see them on the big screen.
And then I had to eat crow. Nicely roasted and basted with a raspberry-chipotle sauce of course, but crow nonetheless.
It wasn’t a perfect movie—far from it—but the dialogue made me laugh (in a good way), and I found myself drawn in by a new wrinkle. Optimus Prime was fed up with humanity and was tired of waiting for them to change.

If you want to be a writer, the most difficult challenge you’ll face comes when someone you love says one of the following things about your writing career:
“You need to start making better decisions.”
“It’s time you grew up and acted like a responsible adult.”
“You can still write as a hobby, but you need to get a real job.”
Don’t believe me? Well, let me prove it to you then. I have seven reasons why I think every writer should be using Twitter.
If you're ever marooned on a desert island, send a help message in a bottle. But where are you going to find pen or paper on an island?
That's why the USB message in a bottle is the perfect way to send for help. Just fire up your solar powered Chromebook, type out the message and put it into the drive.

Alongside my own writing, I work as a freelance editor. (Check out my editing services here.) You can find me blogging about writing on Wednesdays/Thursdays and about the place where real life meets science fiction, fantasy, and myth on Mondays and Fridays Because Fantasy Is More Real Than You Think…I'm the proud wife of a former U.S. Marine, I own seven cats and a dog who weighs as much as I do, and I play World of Warcraft and the flute (not at the same time). Sadly, I'm also addicted to coffee and jelly beans.
