The DFW Wrtiters Conference

The next DFW Writer's Confernce is June 9th and 10th, 2018.

If you have a work that you wold like to present to an agent, attending the DFW Writer's Confernce is your chance. With your paid ticket you get a pitch session with one of the attending agents or editors. Extra pitch sessions can be purchased at the conference.

There are also many classes for writers of all levels. In addition, this is a great chance to network.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Writers' Workshop Read Timer

I've developed an Android Read Timer app for the writer workshops.
It can be down load from here and install on your Android device.

The read timer consists of three timers

A Total Timer of 20 minutes.
A Read Timer of 15 minutes.
A Critique Timer of 1 minute or 30 seconds.

The Start button activates the Total Timer and Read Timer, then turns into a Pause/Continue button.
When the Read Timer times out, indicating the read should end, there is a beep and the display indicates DONE.

The Critique button sets the critique timer to 1 minute.
The Second button sets the critique timer to 30 seconds.

There is a beep when the Critique timer times out indicating that the critique should end. If a read is short the Critique and Second buttons will halt the read timer and starts the Critique Timer.

The Reset button can be used to reset all timers at any time.

To install the Read Timer, you will have to enable Settings / Application / Unknown Source.
This setting should be disable once the Read Timer has been installed.
