Blog Holiday

No, it's not a new holiday.
But I wouldn't put it past Hallmark to capitalize on this soon enough.

It's just me, taking a break. I'll be back to comment on all your bloggie fun and good news really soon.
Or if you need a definite date... I'll be back this Friday.

In the meantime, check out this very short video I "lifted" from Ally Carter's blog. She was saying on her blog how people often ask her "How do you write a novel?" She says the best advice comes from this clip. All you have to do is substitute "write a book" for "run a marathon" and you've got it.



Have a good run--er, write this week!

Happy break to you. If we could run a marathon WHILE writing a book we would all be happier and thinner :)

What a great post/video! Love that show...I remember him from his days as the Kid Doctor Doogie Howser. Great design on your blgo too btw. Thanks for sharing with us all...maybe I can use some of these tips myself as I work on writing my own rough draft of a novel...
