Friday Recommends

My good friend Joanna Foreman takes good care of me, and has sent me two promotional opportunities which I will share with you.

The Chicks of Characterization have a Spotlight feature on their blog. I hope to avail myself of it.

Ramsfield Press is calling for stories with recipes in them. I could never do one of those–oh, no, not I. ~snicker~

Meanwhile, I recommend to you these sites, among the many wonderful ones in the interworld:

Barbara J. King’s Friday Animal Blog, today talking about the healing power of cats in the sun.

Dr. Grasshopper’s How To Kill Your Imaginary Friends, talking today about Schroedinger’s Patient.

And always, always, Sara D vs Reality, posting M-W-F. Today is writing exercise day. I can’t wait till she wakes up and posts for today. Meanwhile, Wednesday was 7 ways to deal with rejection, not including doing the bejection dance.

Meanwhile, I’m working diligently on “Lonnie, Me and the Battle of St. Crispin’s Day”. It’s shaping up. I have the beginning, I know the end, and I have some of the middle bit. It’s that middle bit that always kills me, so I’m ahead of my usual game, this time. 🙂

WRITING PROMPT: If you could sponsor a writing project/contest, what would be the focus? Would any of your characters enter it?



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.

      Heeee! Like your post today. I hadn’t thought of getting inside the interviewer–that’s a good one!

    If I sponsored a writing contest it would be with young people to invent a character that has a unique friendship, or some other relevant theme. I think writing is all about the character’s. I don’t have any characters at the moment who write.

    I’ve missed seeing you. You must be busy.

      I like the thought of sponsoring a contest for young people, especially one about unique friendships. I think they’d love that!

      I’ve been following you on your blog tour–just haven’t been leaving comments. MY BAD!! You’ve been doing a great tour! A different slant every day; that’s the way to do it, but I got worn out after I’d done 10. You are a ball of fire! ~grin~
