|Now that we are into June and there will be more road trips, vacations and even camping I thought a ‘Blogtography’ post would work well.
your humble host
Kristina Stanley has been a friend of the blog for quite a while. As a fellow author she noticed several things we writer types struggle with and set about finding a way to help. I’ll let her explain, but it’s been a fun and enlightening journey watching this evolve.
Kristina is the best-selling author of the Stone Mountain Mystery Series. Her short stories have been published in the Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine and The Voices From the Valleys anthology. She is the author of THE AUTHOR’S GUIDE TO SELLING BOOKS TO NON-BOOKSTORES.
She is the co-founder and CEO of Feedback Innovations, a company started to help writers rewrite better fiction. She loves the self-editing process and wants to help other writers learn how to do a structural edit on their own work.
Today, I asked her to talk a little about an editing app she’s been working on.

I know nowadays some people just write directly to a computer file. I don’t, no matter what I am writing one of the stories i’m starting or still working on same for poems, letters etc I always use a pen. For me I prefer to use the thick (fat) barrel pens so that my fingers don’t hurt and cramp. This is one I’ve been using well over 10 years!
I was in the market for a new set of color pens, as the last ones I had for one…didn’t write smoothly (I had to press on them and that tends to tire the hand out faster) and 2. the orange was more that brownish orange (rust) color.
So I remembered the Inkjoy commercial,
When I first saw this commercial, I wish I still had the old Spirograph set I had as a kid
I had previously grabbed one of the purple ones that came with the ‘pen’ stylus for phones, tablets etc on it. I liked the way it felt and wrote so I ordered a pack of the retractable Color pens for writing in my journal, and letters. They’re not fat like my Tandem pen, but they aren’t so thin like the papermate stick ones that my fingers start to hurt. Even though these are an average size pen, they are still comfortable to use. As for what the commercials say, I LOVE these pens! They are my new favorite kind! They write so smooth you would think it was water or air! I even found a mini set of them in a discount store! These are great for anyone for summer roadtrips, days at the beach and vacations. No matter what you do draw, journal, doodle or scrapbook and anything else I may be missing.
and just so you don’t have to deal with my my review, here’s a video one from youtube.
For those of you that want them for the office I looked up a few options for your convenience
So glad I got that disclaimer out of the way. I don’t consider myself a professional blogger or an expert what so ever. I’ve been blogging on this site for a little over a year so I’ve picked up a thing or two but an expert I certainly am not. Although, I am not at the top of the food chain when it comes to blogging, for some reason I have had bloggers ask me for blogging tips and advice. Again, advice from me?! I’m a no body in this blogging world. Nonetheless, I’ve complied some advice to share with you all.
I’m sure you’ve heard that time and time again (probably a…
