Today, I blogged about how to write a great author bio, and your favorite gay boys from In Living Color's 'Men on Film' made a guest appearance:

Let's Talk About Bios, Baby. Let's Talk About You and Me.

My blog is an ongoing "novel dare" where I post my progress. I often write about issues I'm dealing with or analysis of techniques in works I'm reading.

Last night I was dealing with adding dramatic weight to a comic mystery which started out as a short story.

Why Doubting Yourself Can Kill You

http://sciencefictionfantasybooks.net/w ... -kill-you/

I posted some excerpts from a brilliant blog post by Devon Monk, and then riffed on it:
As writers, we have to be able to edit ourselves and to read our own work from the point of view of someone who doesn’t know us, or even like us. We have to try to be objective. We have to be humble. We have to have high standards for ourselves and strive for continual improvement.

But if you don’t love your work, if you aren’t enthusiastic about it, if you’re not having the time of your life when you write it, if you can’t focus on the things you’re doing well and feel good about those things, then maybe no one else will either.

See the good in you.

Only after skipping a week and then spending 14 odd hours redesigning my site, did I write about aspiring writers and The Respect of One's Peers.
Mark wrote:Everyone reacts differently on hearing that you’re a writer, but more often than not, there is a slight crossing of the eyes and a furrowing of the brow as they try to understand why you would want to devote your time to something so silly.

Not on my blog, but Sarah LaPolla (an agent who works at Curtis Brown with Nathan) has posted my personal essay Sleeping with Goddesses at her blog: http://bigglasscases.blogspot.com/2010/ ... esses.html

A bit of a double post, as I created a topic for this in the writing forum, but I wrote about why I don't discuss any details of my WIP.
I’d Really Rather Not Say
Mark wrote:Yesterday a reader asked me what my novel is about, and as I was about to reply I realized that I don't think I've talked about the theory behind not telling anyone the details of your work in progress (WIP). When asked about mine, I have a stock answer.

"It's about two guys who drive across Canada."

That's it.

An escerpt from my WIP: http://williammjones.blogspot.com/2010/ ... so-im.html

I forgot to title the blog post at first, and I'm kind of amused at the address it was assigned.
