The Writer’s Bloc now open

So, after a few months of fine tuning, There By Candlelight is proud to announce the opening of The Writer’s Bloc.

The Writer’s Bloc is a place for creative people, writers, artists, video game designers, et cetera, to gather and pool our resources. We encourage critiquing of each other’s work, using our various social networks (facebook, google+, twitter, linkedin, etc) to get the word out about our fellows. It is a centralized location for resources on writing and publishing, a place to showcase your work, and lend each other a hand.

The Bloc is open to anyone, even non-creators, who simply wish to help out. Our online presence is global (ie: it doesn’t matter where you live), and we will be having physical meetings in the Los Angeles/Orange County area (right now I’m waiting to hear back from a couple places about venue).

So please, come one, come all. Support your fellow artists, writers, designers, and other creative types.  Admission is free, and we have cookies!*

September Update

Hello, and welcome to the end of summer.  I hope you all had a great season. For those in school or teachers, I salute you!

General news:

-I finished the first draft of Blood Fury and am looking for people to help me by reading it and critiquing it. If you’re interested, please contact me here, on Facebook or twitter, or via email. Thanks in advance!

-After a brain storming session, Jennifer and I have renamed the IWA. It will now be known as The Writer’s Bloc. Coming soon: it’s own website.

-New ‘Feature’ on the blog, Brunch! For all your SPAM-ilicious needs.

September’s DWE is up, with one entry so far: The New Kid At School.

Sonia’s mom hurt herself last weekend. Go on over there and wish her and her mom well!


This month’s TBC Writing Challenge reflects the end of summer with Changes. Write a story, 500 words more-or-less, about some significant Change. This can be a change in a character’s life, a change in the world they live in, or just a very large amount of coins in the pocket.

My own entry will follow.
