This week's blog...

This week I guest blogged at

Well, I'm not really a guest, as I'm actually a member of Hunter Romance Writers. Have a look if you're interested.

Here's the cartoon that should have gone with that blog, except I couldn't get the layout to work on Wordpress:

'"So far all her dreams have not come true but she wants high romance and a baby while
 her husband wants to be, and is, a very successful broker, who takes graduate courses
at night and wants no baby and at the same time she has more or less recovered from
being in love with the well-digger who dug her well, which is good since he is married
with three children and is a drug addict and an alcoholic and he claims he's dying,
although there are no signs of this and she says once she finds an outlet for her unrequited
love she will lose eighty-five pounds."   I enjoyed that sentence.'

Cartoon from Renni Browne and Dave King, Self-Editing for Fiction Writers:

  1. Great post Deb. And love the cartoon :)

  2. Thanks, Kez. I liked the cartoon myself. I'm frequently having to remind myself that a sentence is NOT supposed to be a ten-line paragraph.

  3. Love the cartoon! Off to check out the blog!
