A Note from Cec

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.


  1. I appreciate the time it takes you to write this blog. Thank you.

  2. Thank you for all you do to help writers, Cec. We all know you could prop your feet up and coast through life, but you choose to work hard to show us how to be better writers. Thank you.

    Can't wait to see your new book!

  3. Wonderful! Thanks for your hard work. You make me a better writer!

    Looking forward to another book from you!
