Book Writing, Editing, and Publishing

The Rogues stay busy. This fact gets chronicled often. We each work for a living, we each possess passions for writing, and we each strive to marry the two into a cohesive, workable life. Today, I am blogging five different sites as well as posting an article on HubPages.com. This, in addition to working with my incredible Office Administrator Cindy on four books-in-progress at ClearView Press Inc and two books-in-progress with the Rogues.

Jeff stays swamped these days with his work. I am amazed at the quantity of writing he manages to produce. Top notch writing at that. The Rogues currently swim in the ocean of editing. Our book, The Method Writers, nears completion. Each of us struggle to make time for our writing, and Jeff brings energy, ideas and commitment to finishing the project.

Nancy happens to be the most swamped person I know. She amazes me that she can even muster the energy to attack her days, much less be as productive as she is. Between her work, her writing business, her writing in general and The Method Writers, this lady shows me what work ethic and determination are all about. Nancy is an excellent editor, and the Rogues are truly blessed with her dedication to our group.

Bridget currently resides in Michigan until February. All we ‘southern’ Rogues miss her sorely and look forward to her return. Don’t think for a moment we are disconnected by distance. We Oovoo (meet online in video chat) each week. We use technology to keep our group and projects moving forward. Can you believe, busy as we all are, that we’re writing two, yes two books together, editing, and meeting weekly online. Bridget keeps us on track by taking meeting minutes. She just started doing this out of the blue, which has been a HUGE benefit to the group.

The Rogues are writing. We’re editing. We’ll soon be publishing. This all in addition to owning hectic lives. I write all this as encouragement to all writers who say they “don’t have time to write”. None of the Rogues have time to write – yet we do. We make time to write. So can you. Sacrifice something. TV time. Sleep. A couple games of Spider Solitaire. You can do it. I know you can, because the Rogues do.

Filming of the Rogues Mockumentary

This coming Tuesday the Rogues Gallery Writers will convene for rehearsal for their upcoming mockumentary “Behind the Prose”. Filming will begin Sunday, May 22, 2011. The mockumentary will feature the Rogues and their upcoming book project The Method Writers.

Once filming is complete, the video will be placed on Kickstarter.com. Kickstarter is a funding site for creative projects. Benevolent folk drop by and pledge money toward the various creative projects listed on the site. Once funding is accomplished, the money gets dispersed and voi la! Funding! Yippee!!

Part of the book project will be a set of trading cards depicting characters in the book. One side of the card will be the character’s pic while the other side will have some character info. Another aspect of the project will be a deck of playing cards featuring the character pics. Also on the docket are calendars, mugs t-shirts and hats.

Once the film is on Kickstarter, the Rogues would greatly appreciate your pledge. We will have 30 days in which to meet our pledge goals or go back to the drawing board. Please consider helping us complete this project with proper funding. Stay tuned. We should be going live with the fundraiser in June!

Insane Writers – Great Stories

A short post on the comings and goings of the Rogues Gallery Writers. We meet nearly every Tuesday evening. We go over the plot lines of our book – The Method Writers which is shaping up nicely. Each of us is writing a character who is a member of a writers group and is writing a book.

The twist of this book is that the characters decide to try something they dub ‘method writing’ after the similar occurrence in acting labeled ‘method acting’. The characters decide to pursue some aspect of the book they’re writing by physically experiencing whatever it is they want THEIR characters to experience. One of the writers is incorporating a bank robbery into her story so she plans out and executes a bank robbery. Another character is writing about a character that gets involved in the sex scene, so that writer dives into the world of sex.

The fun of this book is that our characters interact with each other and we must make sure we’re all on the same page. The book is being written with a lot of dark humor which should make it fun for the reader as well as getting the reader to invest in the characters. We are working at making this a big deal. We’ve planned to film a ‘Mockumentary’ about the project, again with loads of dark humor. We also are planning to come up with playing cards, trading cards, calendars, mugs, t-shirts and other promotional material. Keep checking out our companion blog, www.themethodwriters.wordpress.com for quotes from the upcoming book, some of the character pics and other book related tidbits.

Also check out our book, More Writing is Easy on Kindle or order a physical copy through the bookstore at ClearView Press.
