New Will Write For Chocolate on Writer Unboxed

I’ve uploaded a new Will Write For Chocolate strip on Writer Unboxed. Click the image below to see the comic:

WUB WWFC

Because of my book project schedule for the next couple of years, I’m not posting as often on Writer Unboxed. Thanks to Therese Walsh and Kathleen Bolton for letting me do a guest post every few months; I love their site!

I’ll be adding this newest comic to the regular Will Write For Chocolate site eventually but for now, I encourage you to visit the Writer Unboxed site.

Making time to read (and a new Will Write For Chocolate)

Updated Will Write For Chocolate.

My life has gotten progressively busier over the past few years, and I'm finding it more necessarily to actually schedule in pleasure reading time. Sounds stuffy and formal, I know! But if I don't do that, my reading time gets cut way down.

By "pleasure reading," I mean reading just for the joy of it. Not because the books are written by people I know (even though it's likely I'll love those books, too) or books I've promised to review or books to improve my craft or business. I mean stories that I'm reading JUST FOR FUN.

And I'm thinking it's time for another of my own Secret Dates very soon. Happily, my husband understand. :-)

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL CAPS-LOCK DAY, EVERYONE

International Caps Lock Day began as a parody holiday by Metafilter user Derek Arnold but has since been embraced by one and all. 

Well, at least by one. :-)

Will Write For Chocolate updated: "What The New iPhone *doesn't* have...."

In case anyone was wondering, I *have* decided to upgrade my iPhone to the iPhone 5s. I read ebooks on my iPhone as well as taking a ton of photos, so the improved graphics capability (and especially the new camera features) make it well worth it for me.

More info about Apple's new iPhones in the NYTimes today as well as (of course) on Apple's site.
