Rounding out this week by downloading on my kindle The Art of War for Writers: Fiction Writing Strategies, Tactics, and Exercises by one of my craft “mentors” (in book form, twitter and blog) James Scott Bell. Were I to host a conference for writers in Atlanta he would be first call on my list to come and teach (of course I’d have to have the budget to cover him as a presenter.)

I’m planning to pick several of the exercises to focus on doing next week in addition to another week of working on craft. I am definitely making working on craft part of my between books schedule to keep my mind focused and sharp while I’m plotting, writing and creating. Learning is good for the soul and keeping me on my toes.

I pray readers of the books I produce see growth and improvement and enjoy the fruits of my labor.
