Author Surprise/Routine in Fiction/Gospel on Nat'l TV/Devo/Spring Flowers


1.  What No One Told You About Being an Author by Cathy Fyock - neat article with some marketing tips.

2.  I hopped over to Jane Friedman's blog and found an article by Peter Seljin on How to Make the Best Use of "Routine" Events in Your Fiction. He often critiques first pages and gave me a great deal to think about. I'm going to take a fresh look at my work in progress.

3.  Breaking Christian News reports on how Kathie Lee Gifford shared the Gospel on national TV. I'm grateful for those in the entertainment industry who boldly proclaim the message of Jesus Christ.

4.  Rhonda Rhea, a humorist, gives us a look at A Messy Life.  Her analogy made me grin. I've done this more times than I can count.

5.  It's official - I have Spring fever. The mere thought of daffodils, tulips, lilacs, and azaleas makes me giddy. To celebrate, here's a slide show from Better Homes and  Gardens featuring Spring blooms.

Writers:  Please share something that surprised you about being an author (whether yourself or someone you know).

Readers:  What's your favorite Spring flower? Please share.
