I follow a lot of blogs, especially writer's, agent's and editor's blogs as many are loaded with good advice for writers. Today, I read an especially good one from uber-agent Chip MacGregor's blog that I thought I'd point out. He has a guest on his blog today, Rob Eager, the President of Wildfire Marketing, who makes some interesting points about social networking for writers that I thought was eye-opening. You can read it by either clicking on Chip's blog on my blog and weblist, or go directly to it here at: http://chipmacgregor.typepad.com/main/
He raises some intriguing questions about Facebook and blogs, et al.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day!

Thought it was time for some "writer" stuff.

Mary and Matt C., a friend of ours at the Writer's Institute at the University of Wisconsin. She's just told me to lie down by my dish.

My wife Mary, just before leaving for Red Lobster on Mother's Day. She's just warned me not to use "that name" for our reservation. Is it just me or does she look skeptical when I tell her I won't?

Scott Evans, editor of Blue Moon Literary and Art Review just notified me that the new issue is out. I have a story in it, so everybody buy copies, okay? Just keep in mind that Christmas is right around the corner and they'll make great gifts. I'd buy 10 or 20 copies... Seriously, you can order copies from their website at www.bluemoonlitartreview.com
Sad day at our house. My wife Mary and I just took our dog Buddy to the vet to be put down. He's been part of our family for the past 14 years and started out to be our son Mike's dog, but turned into both his and Mary's dog. I yelled at him a lot, so we had our own special bond. He was really a great dog. Mike won a state photography contest with a picture of Buddy reading a book. (All of our animals are required to read books in our house and submit a book report when done)
Our son Mike won the PTA State Championship in the Reflections photography contest when he was in the sixth grade with this photo of his dog Buddy. Check out the title. Mike got the idea himself and set up the shot. He went to Border's Bookstore and got Harry Potter glasses for him to wear. My wife Mary saved the day as we couldn't get Buddy to sit still long enough for Mike to take the shot, when she got the idea to put peanut butter on the rug in front of him. Buddy gave a lick and then lifted his head to try to get the peanut butter off of his tongue and that's when Mike got the shot. He was the first state winner at his elementary school.
We miss Buddy!

As promised, I'm writing a bit more about the subject of graphology. Hope you enjoy it.
I just realized that in signing books, I'm leaving myself wide-open to have my own handwriting analyzed... Oops...
Many, many more!
