Happy Friday. And thanks to all of you wonderful people who participated in my poll. Your votes and your comments were wonderful.

And here’s the lucky winner picked by Random.com:

Meg Opperman

Meg, please get in touch with me at janchristensen@janchristensen.com about your free copy of BLACKOUT. I’ll need to know what version you would like and how to send it to you.

What I learned: First, all the blurbs were too long. The votes were about evenly divided between 2 and 3, so I’m going to go with my gut, pick the one I think is best, but shorten it. You’ll have to wait for me to get the book out there to see which one I chose. When I do, I’ll announce it at my usual social media spots and on my website so you’ll know. And of course I’ll let Meg know her copy is on its way.

Thanks again, all. You were a huge help!

  1. First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center
    yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my
    mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing
    but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!

    • Hi, Sharyl–sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you. We’ve been away since Monday, now catching up. First, there’s nothing wrong or strange about your needing to figure out what you’re going to write at the start of your session. But if you’d rather have something in mind before then, I suggest you think about the story while doing other, mindless things such as showering or exercising or housework. I hardly ever think about writing except when I sit down to do it, so I sometimes have the same problem. If I remember, I do try to think about the project while doing other stuff. If not, I simply spend the time needed before beginning that session. I do think the more you write on a schedule, the easier this becomes, and the faster you’ll get to the actual writing each time. Good luck! And thanks for stopping by. Please continue to and ask any questions you have. I’ll do my best to answer them.
