WIP'ed Ink on Thursday

Hey all you beautiful guys and dolls!

I know. I missed yesterday. So sorry, guys! We had a fantastic "How I Got My Agent" blog post. Plus, I forgot it was the first Wednesday of the the month, which means ISWG day! I didn't want to post too much stuff at one time.

Thank goodness you guys are so understanding and patient:)

I'm so excited to announce the Show Off Workshop!

Showing vs. Telling. I thought I had this all figured out, but after a couple of critiques from agents and they all saying the same thing, I decided it was time to learn to be a show off instead of everyone telling on me:)

So, here's the details: There will be 5 mini classes. Each class will discuss a separate aspect for showing off. Here's the list!

1. Show off Your Details
2. Get All Emotional
3. Helping Your Reader Be a Show off
4. Understanding a Show off
5. Show off Specifically Good

This workshop is running all next week, Monday thru Friday. And everyone who participates  will have a chance to show off their improvements with an agent contest! That's right! Thee will ba an agent judged contest for the most improved show off!

Who's ready to show off! I won't tell on you. I promise!!


  1. Oh what a great idea and wow love the new blog layout, Ink!

    1. Isn't it bright and shiny and pretty. And glittery? I felt like celebrating today:)

      And thanks! I'm looking forward to the workshop, too:)

    1. These classes are going to be so great. Trust me, they might shock you. Especially if you thought you knew what showing was. Boy, that sentence was terrible, and so passive.... Yep, I need the classes, too!

  3. I'm looking forward to following the posts!

  4. I started writing a story a couple days ago and I'd like to try ;D
    Thanks Inky and congrats...I posted below! YOU rock and I love all that you shared!!!

    1. How is it that you always make be blush! You're a sweetheart! Thanks a million and you know, the workshop is going to be awesome!! Glad you'll be here!!

  5. Count me in! I SO need this right now :) Thanks already.

  6. I love the new blog look! I will always automatically tell instead of show. It takes uncountable hours of revisions to weed them all out.

  7. I'm looking forward to it too! Love the new blog changes, but still love reading posts just from you too :)

  8. *raising hand while head is still on desk* Me. *snore* Huh? Sorry. Um, I definitely need to attend :)

    I see you added lots of bling! Purdy :)
