Music I'm listening to: "Blue Gene Vincent" by Havana 3AM
*Ahem* Thanks for nudging me, Mary R. :) Mary helped me notice I haven't been hanging around my own blog since March. Ouch. Right, then, I'd better get back into the groove!
First off, I've been contemplating a longish post about the Amazon Kindle
. Yes, I now own one of these funky lil
' e-book readers, and it's changed my thoughts about publishing's future in a BIG way. Not that the Kindle is all sweetness and light, mind you, and there are some drawbacks to it that give me major pause--but overall, I think the Kindle *or something like it*
could thrust the slower-moving, slow-adapting parts of the publishing industry into quite a, um, situation
. While I ponder my swirling thoughts, does anyone else out there have one of these goodies?
Second, one of the reasons for my extended absence is my latest project. Ta-da!
(Imagine the curtains opening.) For all you busy writers who could use a little nudge yourselves, my Write Now Quotes
is a short email newsletter featuring a single motivational quote each week and some brief commentary tailored for the writerly
soul. I plan to get the next issue out tomorrow evening, so if you'd like to get it, best sign up
More to come in future posts here, including my current irritation with a previous love (Thesaurus.com, a website that has peeved me so greatly I won't even give it a link), and a gleeful party for yet another client who's sold her book. (Waving to Leigh--gal, drink some Chick-fil-A
lemonade for me!) Meanwhile, I hope that despite my recent quiet, y'all are out there happily writing away. Right?
