Two terrific resources

Have you read Lawrence Block's Telling Lies for Fun and Profit? If not, go get a copy. It's 20 or so years old but it still reads fresh. He tells every secret he knows, and has a good time doing it, too. Good book.

Here's something else that you might find handy: Jenny Crusie's and Bob Mayer's yearlong writing workshop. Discussion will happen on the Cherry Forums Online Writing Workshop forum. You have to join the Forums as a member to see the forums, but it's free (and worth it).

I just ordered the book Telling Lies for Fun and Profit because clearly what is missing in my life is another book on writing. : )

I am really excited about the on line workshop. It should be good good good.

I've enjoyed your blog for awhile now - thanks for the entertaining writing, and all the great fiction references.

I read your link at odious woman, and the link referring me here was listed as brookbannon AT blogspot, instead of brookbannon DOT blogspot, which causes linkage problems. Just fyi.

thanks for the heads up on the workshop. I'll check it out for sure. Will you post pics of your wax painting?
