NaNoWriMo Ahoy!

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

Do you NaNoWriMo? This year, I am. NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. Every November, from the stroke of one second after midnight on November first until the very last second of the very last hour of the month, participants pour themselves into writing. The goal is a 50,000 page novel – about 175 pages […]

Comments are open again. Do you know your Descartes?

Friday, August 12th, 2011

A reader alerted me to the fact that I’d inadvertently turned off comments. More specifically, I’d turned off the ability to comment without being registered. Since I disable the ability to self-register, the was no way to register and therefor no way to comment. Turning off comments is a silly thing, when I post writing […]

Summer 2011 QuoteSnack News

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

First off, I have to say that QuoteSnack readers rock. Take a look. This is a screenshot of QuoteSnack Feedburner action. The long, low stretch is when I was not posting. The big rise at the end is in direct response to new posts here – QuoteSnack’s highest Feedburner “reach” ever. But wait! There’s More! […]

Elizabeth Able

I’m jumping the gun on Spring, but it’s for a good cause – I am ready ready ready for some sunshine and sweet green things!

Here’s what’s happening on the QuoteSnack front. First off, I owe you an apology for not getting Monday’s quote out. The post after a writing prompt always comes from the source of the prompt, until I forgot to post yesterday. Yesterday’s quote was to be from “The Present Crisis” by….

Reader Survey, Coming Soon!

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

I signed up for MailChimp and am working on a reader survey. I’m looking for a sense of reader interest. What should I ask? Do you write? Do you teach? Do you live for the odd writing prompt or historical tidbit, would you like to see an occasional word of the day, or an exploration […]

Hello 2011

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

Ever feel like you’re being tested? I’d planned to spend New Years Day working on some writing for here and elsewhere. Instead, some of last night and most of today was eaten up with reconstructing a site that had some corrupted files on the server. I was saved by having backups in more than one […]

Over 500 personally verified quotes later…

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

It’s late, it’s hot and I’m up writing, mulling over what I want to do with this site. I keep coming back to three things: 1. What would I be interested in seeing here, if this was not my site? I’d want diversity. Every day, I’d like to see a short list of what happened […]

I’m taking a weekend

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

We’re having a long holiday weekend here in the US, and I’m playing hooky from bloggy duties. I’ll be back on Tuesday! In July the QuoteSnack design will get a re-vamp, and I’ll be reconsidering what I do on this site. If there is something you’d like to see here, this is the time to […]

Well, I’m coming back…

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Have you missed me? Last week I had another ultrasound, and got the news that it’s my last for a while – I’m officially back in the “normal monitoring” category. Since then, I have been sleeping a good 10-12 hours a night, and when I get close to anything creative, I’m dazed, about as focused […]

This is for the Lurkers

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

With today’s post open in another tab, I wandered onto a friend’s hacked site and got Rick-rolled by a never-ending series of popups. The only way out was to click on the equivalent of install-evil-file.exe, even after restarting my browser, and I wasn’t going to do that. My defaults were set to restore whatever tabs […]

Looking for Links for a Writing Prompt Round-up

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

Do you have favorite writing exercise links? I want to start some writing and reading resource lists here on QuoteSnack, and I’m starting with writing prompts. Do you regularly host writing prompts and want a review on QuoteSnack, or participate in a site with an active group of writing prompt participants? Drop a link into […]
