I can't remember if I mentioned this before or not, but I'm taking a class right now. As in, an actual class, the kind with homework and papers and everything. I wanted a change from tap (those of you who've been reading for a while--all three of you, know what I'm talking about), and I thought it might be nice to be back at a university, especially since I'm no longer working at one.

However, the homework thing? Okay, how did I forget about the whole having to read hundred of pages in a week thing? And papers? I haven't written a paper in years. I picture the first one I have to turn in coming back with nothing on except the words, "How did you ever get into this class?" written in bright red ink.

(As you can probably guess, I'm procrastinating on finishing my homework right now! Some 'study' habit you never forget...)

As usual, lots of people are saying interesting things about writing:

Maureen Johnson on what writers do all day. I admit it, I fangurl her like crazy, but hey, she writes amazing books *and* has one of the funniest blogs around. Go, read, laugh! And then buy one of her books. You won't be sorry, I promise.

Therese Fowler's posts are always interesting and articulate. This is one of my faves, as it sheds light on the idea that having an agent=selling a book.

Also from Therese Fowler, her list of top ten writing mistakes.

Charles Stross on life as a full-time writer.

Hi Elizabeth--

A friend cued me in that you'd linked my post here. I'm very flattered to be called "interesting and articulate!" Thank you!

And congratulations on your upcoming novel publication--the cover of BLOOM is beautiful. Bound to attract lots of readers, always a good thing. :-)
