Weekly Words - a quote, a tool, and a tip for writers


"I wanted to be my own heroine.” Jesmyn Ward

A Writing Tool


Here's a chance to become your own heroine, not just write about her. Purchase your domain name. Check to see if your name is available on sites like GoDaddy or Google Domains. If www.yourname.com isn't available, try www.yournameauthor.com or some other version of your name until you find the right thing. Even if you aren't going to use it right away, purchase it now so, it's there when you need it. Don't buy any of the bells and whistles the companies will try to sell you - you can always add them later.

Craft Tip


End chapters on a cliffhanger. It pulls readers into the next chapter.
