Random Linkages for Writer Wednesday or Whatever Wednesday

Rosaria Williams of “Sixtyfivewhatnow” blog found my grammatical error below. I had a run-on sentence.

She said:

“You got a run-on there, pretty lady, right there, the sentence before you ask us to tell you if we saw any errors:  “I will surely admit it, you bet your by grammar gollies I will!”

And she is correct. Rosaria received a gift. If anyone finds another one, call me on it.

Received a bad review? A rejection? A scathing critique? Then go here and see what some reviews had to say about some of the “beloved classics” and maybe you’ll feel better!

Amazon reviewers think this masterpiece sucks

100 Most Often Mispronounced Words and Phrases in English

There are no rules, by Jane Friedman (Writer’s Digest publisher/contributing editor) LOVE her bio (here’s an excerpt)

“I am a late-sleeping, bourbon-drinking editor, at least mostly sane. I live life forward, even though you can only understand it backward. I don’t have hobbies, unless drinking is a hobby. I write, I read, I edit, I teach, I speak.”

Did you know I am actually in a horror anthology-or one of my stories, that is.  Bump in the Night, by Drollerie Press. My story is tame next to some of the others. I wrote it years back and of course I now see what I would change about it — too late! I am in Part III: Bien P’tit Gens – I think I will re-visit that story – change the ending, tweak it a bit.  But, there are some fine stories in this anthology. Drollerie Press is a small press that is quietly making its way out there. Go by and give them a look see.

That’s enough for now. Now y’all go do the day!

PS – I received a few “Advanced Review Copies” of SWEETIE – uncorrected proofs – so it is so wonderful to hold the book in my hands, see the cover (which will look even better than it does now with the final published book!) I’m reading it now for errors to be corrected before the final goes out. I’m so excited to hold my words and read them. Bellebooks is sending out review copies to their lists. I sent two out – one to Asheville Citizen Times Rob Neufeld and another to Baton Rouge Advocate Greg Langley – they did kind wonderful reviews of Tender Graces, keep your fingers crossed they will want to review SWEETIE and be as kind!
