I’m being interviewed today on Simon Royle’s IndieView blog today about writing, publishing (specifically indie publishing) and EEL’S REVERENCE.

Meanwhile, NOBODY has entered the contest I announced yesterday to win a free story. As a character in Sara Deurell‘s as-yet-unpublished novel would say, “That’s just hurtful.”

WRITING PROMPT: Write about someone having a pity party which is interrupted by a compliment. Is it too little, too late, or is it redemptive or does it irritate the character who is enjoying the suffering?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Good luck on your interview. As far as the contest… well… I hate to, you know, take advantage of everyone. I should let others have a chance. Yes, that sounds about right ;-P

      Thanks, Monti! As it happens, I do live in an area with great writer support, but the interview was done through email. The site owner lives in Thailand!

    Big hugs to you. I hope you feel better. Have you tried publicising the contest on facebook and twitter? I find they help too.

      I do feel better, thank you, Enid. I did post about the contest on Facebook and Twitter. I guess nobody wants one of my stories. Boo-hoo for me! 🙂
