UTILIZE the down time.
Have notepad, ipad, iphone handy!
  • USE a notebook to: take notes on other displays or UPCOMING events
  • USE it to work out a kink in or start a new WIP
  • USE a tablet or ipad to show your trailer
  • USE your phone to connect, check emails, and by all means click some pics!

Hi Tara - great bloggers and consortium of .. I just like some switch off modes sometimes, when my mind wanders off .. nothing to think about, nothing to worry about for that short breathing space ... longer yes- something to read.

Cheers Hilary

Use that down time to roam around and meet other authors or introduce yourself to potential readers, too.

Follow both although I don't get to visit all the time. Certainly not this month.

I highlighted both of those, too! And great tips, Tara!

Great U post.
I don't know The Unicorn Bell group (yet), but the gang at Untethered Realms are my heroes for this A-Z Challenge!!

Just yesterday I wish I'd had a trailer to show on my tablet during the book event I'm going to tomorrow. You've given me so many great tips this month.

It's a good idea to bring a notebook along to an event. I'm used to community events starting on so-called "Jewish time," and have learnt to bring a book or something while I'm waiting 20–30 minutes extra for the event to start.

Hi human, Tara,

Well U did a great job with this one. Nothing like noting blogging community sites. Of course, IWSG aka "I Was Seeking Gary, is my deluded human's favourite site. Arf!

I don't have an Ipad but I do have an Ipaw!

Pawsitive wishes,

Penny :)
