Changes, News

I'm trying to pen a regular column at a new site I've built,Creative Writer So approximately every 7 days, I'll archive the column here since a number of readers have bookmarked this site. Plus it's just plain easier to move the previous column here.

This has been convention-crisis month. I haven't had a free minute--7 weekends in a row spent doing the authorial ritual. But the book's going great. I just found out yesterday, at a banquet in Gainesville, Florida, that Killing Earl won second place in the letters competition sponsored by the Florida State Association of the National League of American Pen Women, Inc. I won some other awards too, in fiction, nonfiction and poetry. I was a whole lot more surprised than the audience. FSA/NLAPW has over 600 Florida members. The book that took first prize is Mary Cameron Kilgour's Me May Mary, published by the Child Welfare League of America. I am honored to be in her company.

I'm also doing NaNoWriMo--you can keep up with my progress at Can She Do It? I have no idea if I can push out 50,000 words in a month. But I've had this young adult novel in my head for a long time. And on a regular month, I write more than that; it's just that I write it in segments for different newspapers and magazines.

Hope everyone's doing well today. We're keeping an eye on Wilma.

best to all, Kay Day

Good blog but without email advertising you have little chance of selling anything.

I think the cyberworld is made up of people who just hop around blogs and post worthless messages like these.

Note for Dan: I HATE EMAIL ADVERTISING.
