Wherein I endeavour to share writerly advice lightened with humour, pictures and a dollop of 1930s-1940s history.
I think I took your reward of wine too liberally...did you say rubber chickens? :)Thanks for the smiles!
Laura; Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed the post...and I understand about the wine - it can happen.
I definitely write like a turtle most of the time.Congratulations on your new blogging duties.
Carol; Look to your right - I'm the one balancing a glass of wine on my shell. Thanks for the congrats - you've got to wonder if they know what they're getting themselves into inviting me along for the ride...
We DO need to reward ourselves, don't we? I think we take ourselves for granted! :) Thanks for the reminder.
Elizabeth; You of all people should remember to reward yourself - I'm in awe of your self-discipline.
Elspeth, from the looks of the comments at BRP, your contribution is going to be a big hit. And it should be a great venue for you to increase your own exposure . . .to your writing and games, I mean. :)
Patricia; I'm SO GLAD you clarified that - trust me when I say exposure of any other kind would NOT be an experience I'd be willing to undertake.
Elspeth - What a treat! Two Elspeth posts today! This one's such a great motivator, too :-). What a nice reassurance that everything one writes counts towards one's goal, even if it's only a word or a sentence.
Margot; Aren't you kind? *blush* Seriously, I do try to remember that even one word or one sentence is a step forward. Every step counts.
So good to meet you through your post on the Blood Red Pencil. Look forward to reading much more of your insights!
TexasRed; Good to meet you too! Thanks so much for the follow!
Love this, Elspeth. And backatcha. Thanks.
