Inspiration and Advice for Writers from Writers

I found an awesome resource that I think I’d like to pick through over at

The irony is that I often find myself being inspired about writing when I should be writing. Do any of you do that?

In any case, I’ll try to carve out a time once a week or so to learn from the greats. And, above all, I’ll make it my priority to write.

Progress on My Book

I’m making some progress on a work in progress. I’m writing a Halloween book about a witch and her black cat. It is a lot of fun!
