For this series, I've received an immense number of responses--and I'm thankful to each of you for the effort you expended to write.
I've been heavily involved with my virtual assistant, Twila Belk, in finishing
up a book for early 2013 release. It's taken us about three months longer than
I had anticipated. We're almost finished.
One question sent was whether these blog entries would appear in book form. Yes
(so I can get Twila to stop nagging) and it will probably go into print the
first part of 2013. (We'll notify you.)
Today someone asked what blogs I read on writing. I skim a number of them, but
haven't found one I particularly like. I own perhaps 200 books on writing. A
couple of months ago I bought two books by Mignon Fogarty. She writes brief
entries, so I carry her book with me on my trips to read in those odd moments.
But the truth is that I've been writing full time since 1984, and I've learned
many, many lessons (and I'm still learning). I'm at the stage where I need
reminders more than new information.
