And the Chinese are sending a probe to Mars.
On the Awesome Lavratt front: Just found out my trade edition from createspace is spineless! Or rather, it has nothing printed on the spine. Ahhh, the joys of publication.
The Word by Word radio interview went well on Wednesday night. Aside from a couple of bonehead slips, I sounded reasonably intelligent. I'll be posting it on my site eventually. Or at least excerpts.
I attended the monthly meeting of Redwood Writers today and I think we must have had 60 people in that room. We had to keep fetching more chairs. If you're a Sonoma County writer or want to be a writer and live in the county, this is a hoppin' club and the best place to start.
Also, I want to plug LinkedIn again. There are groups there for everything. There's at least one sf group. Lots of writers groups. You can visit my page to see links to all the groups I've found helpful so far.
My favorite word this week was abyss. Perhaps if we intentionally come up with favorite words and intentionally use them to death for a while, we won't be doing it on accident? Worth a try. Anyone who has ever had to edit their own or someone else's writing, knows what I mean.
And we all have favorite words we pepper our speech with.
