“Writing is rewriting.” -popularized by Paul Abbot

Ciuin sent Petty Theft to be professionally edited, a return favor for her assistance to an author/editor who just completed a book.

Tony replanned Tunnels and has another chapter about ready.


Sometimes no news is good news.


Here’s an interesting essay on Show vs Tell that Shannon mentioned.  It concentrates on the weakness of “thought”, “remembered”, etc. and has me right in the crosshairs.

Noble Pen Now on Facebook!

I’ve created a Noble Pen group on Facebook.  At this time I’ve invited about ten people that were in my profile to join the group, however I may have missed others.  If I missed you, I’m apologize, but would like to invite you to join the group.  If you know any others that might be interested in our little group, please invite them as well.
The plan for the Noble Pen group on Facebook is to provide another syndication point for picking up our newsletters and news items from the website.  I would also encourage our Facebook participants to share the newsletters and announcements via their profiles.
