I just opened the door to the novelist group for you - welcome! You might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on. And we do a live chat every Wednesday; hope you can join us for that!

Hi Jen, thank you so much for your note. It's always nice to discover that someone is actually reading this stuff! (I'm sorry my blog won't let you comment - will have a word.) I've had such a nice response I think I may write more about it - with all the other types  between the two extremes of Diamonds and Butterfly wings.  If you'll let me play fairy god mother for a moment, I think you will grow up to be as attractive as the Butterfly Wings and as resilient as a Diamond! xx Thanks again for stopping by.

I have trouble finding stuff myself. I didn't have it spelled out that the link was for my blog, but that's okay, because it was an old link anyway! The new one is http://www.robinsimondsfitch.com/WP-blog/ Looking forward to reading yours :)

I’ve always been a computer person. I grew up in the Seattle area and computers were the norm. My grandparents had Pong (sweet!). I got an Atari 2600 for Christmas (back in the day when…

Dialogue: All the Time, No Exceptions

It’s a matter of dialogue.…
