Friday is for Fun

Here's a couple fun things to play with.

Wordle - Paste in the text of your story and Wordle creates a word picture. It's seriously cool. You can save the images and use them for bookmarks, t-shirts and other promo ideas.

Write or Die - Need help getting words on the page? Give this a try. For serious cases, set it on Kamikazi mode. Then keep writing or your words will disappear.

20,000 Names - Here's a great place to find names for characters. You can also search by meaning.

Free Book - Become one of our first 25 followers and be entered to win an authographed copy of The Tomb by F. Paul Wilson or The Writer's Digest Handbook of Magazine Article Writing.

Mysteries in the Making now has an "office" at Zoetrope. Once you join, find Mysteries in the Making in the directory and request to join. I"ll be glad to invite you in. It's private so we can post our work there for comments and critiques and not lose our rights. I look forward to seeing you there.

Lastly...I get to brag. Mysterical-e has accepted my short story, Up In Smoke for their fall issue. I'll post a link when it goes live.

Prey is live at Golden Visions Magazine. Please, go by, read and if you like it, give it a shout out by voting for it. The reader's favorites may end up in a year end anthology.
