In Episode 3 of SZWordeatery, I go over some DOs and DONTs of running a Kickstarter campaign. These are tips I wish someone had given me from the outset. I’m 6 days away from the end of my own Kickstarter for Vol. 1 of Beatrice is Dead, the graphic novel I authored!
I’m splitting up the vlog into a food section and a reading/writing section. Here’s Episode 2.2, wherein I offer some tips on Twitter use for writers and talk about Nick Harkaway’s Angelmaker. Stick around for Awkward Moments at the end!
I decided to start a vlog where I could talk about all of my favorite things and weekly experiences in one place. Here’s Episode 1 with a recap below!
// Eat //
I recommended Paola Parson’s loveandcupcakesblog Instagram for gorgeous and alluring foodporn.
I shared my Instagram handle, pterostigma.
I visited Brentwood ice cream shop Sweet Rose Creamery and recommended the summer corn and dairy-free horchata scoops. Delish!
News: I joined the Food Riot team as a Contributing Writer, and I have a new gluten-free recipe for Chococonut Bacon Bombs on my food blog, Little PorkPie.
// Write //
I shared three time management tips for writers:
- Use Google Calendar to organize your time and keep track of deadlines.
- Write during your lunch break to alleviate some time-related stress.
- Cut out as much television as possible for better productivity. It doesn’t hurt as much as you might think.
News: I’m on the last chapter of revisions for the first book of my YA Fantasy series, Aurelia and the House of Dire.
// Read //
I’m currently reading A Game of Thrones. The book and the series follow each other impressively closely so far.
News: The Kickstarter page for the first volume of my horror graphic novel, Beatrice is Dead, will be up in August!
