Hooray, my blog is back where I can see it. I guess I was too impatient, or my computer didn’t send it properly.
Anyway, more marketing news. I have updated Goodreads and am about to have a go on Amazon Author Central.
I became aware , recently, that i had broken a few writing rules when I wrote ‘A bend in the Lane.’ I think it’s because I have been writing plays and there one can switch from character to character, whereas in books one is advised to stay with one point of view, at least for a chapter.
I found that when my main character was not present I wrote from another point of view, even if it was only for a short ‘scene.’ I didn’t notice while I was writing. It just seemed normal. I suppose that’s why people say my books are like reading a ‘soap.’
I’ll use my bookworm image so folk know this is a writing blog.
Now what have I done wrong? Although someone must have seen my last blog my reader list says it was updated five days ago so I can’t see what everyone else sees. I have tried to re-follow myself to see if that works.
I posted the books to the Deposit Library and have sent a couple off for reviews. Now to try to update Goodreads and Amazon.
I had fun designing the invitation but I won’t put it on here as my laptop seems to stop working every time I post a photo.
I’ve had five orders already. That’s the ticket!
This post is to make sure I can post and everything I write does not go onto site pages as the last post did!
Trying to download a photo to put in a comment on a wordpress post but having difficulty. Lets see if it works! Wow! It did. Took ages but I’m getting there!Vespa.
An error occurred while uploading – even though I’d made the photo square. Now what do I do?
Somebody said if I change the theme I might be able to load my photos. OK. I’ve done that but it still won’t work.
I’d be glad to hear if you all like the new theme. if not, I’ll go back to the old one. I’m a bit fed up with the computer as it has a will of its own at present. Just when I was getting used to putting pictures on it stops allowing it! Now I have to find out if the problem is wordpress or the photos. It even won’t load ones it did before! Is this Windows 10’s fault?
I’m going to try again now, with a photo I have loaded before: That worked. New one didn’t.
Thanks, Pete and Ajay. That was very helpful. I got confused because my son,Martin (Sticky) Round is a journalist and is often on line and I thought he was reading my blog! No such luck – the family don’t follow me at all. ( They are on facebook)
Now I need some help choosing what to write about as the advice on twitter is to stick to one subject so telling folk about the events I have attended and the things that irritate me should not be mixed in with the books and poems I have written.
My website http://www.juliecround.co.uk covers most of my background so I try to keep the blog up to date with happenings but I am finding my readers probably prefer it when I put poems on. If that will get me followers I’ll try to write one a week but it won’t be easy to illustrate them all.
Now I have finished the radio play course I need one on presentations!
