Other blogs

OK, I'm way overdue for a posting. But I'm a bit busy at the moment, so I'm gonna recommend some other places you can go instead:

Shameless Words: Has a touching post about what happened to a favorite blog following a long silence. I like this site a lot, in spite of the fact that I cannot seem to post comments there. I think it's a Blogger beta/non-Beta issue.

Mysterious Musings: A blog by Julia Buckley. No, not that Julia Buckley. She apparently has a name-twin here in the States who is also a writer.

Deep Thinker: She writes poetry and is working on a vampire novel: what more could you ask for? Oh, yeah. Her site is black, too.

Confessions of An Author: Description provided: "Diary of a D-List Author. After two mass-market paperback novels and two non-fiction lifestyle books published, dropped back into the agentless/publisherless black hole." Nicely numbered, too.

So, you've been sneakily reading The Other Julia Buckley as well eh?

She's lovely actually, and so is her blog.

Have a good weekend on the Nano.

Hey there, thanks for the link. Sorry about the comments thing ... does that mean I should switch to the Beta version? Your site looks great, by the way, and I look forward to reading more of you!

Hi and thanks for the link. Also thanks for your comments on my blog.

Good luck with the writing.

Julia: I read all sorts of things. I'm just shy about it. Good luck to you as well this weekend. You're within stabbing distance of finishing this thing and claiming your certificate. I heard a rumor that anyone who completes NaNo can get a free paperback copy of their output, as well. It's nice, but having a permanent record of my atrocious first draft is a little daunting.

Shameless: It turns out that I can post comments if I don't use my own login. So I suppose my reluctance to post a comment without showing my picture and getting a free reciprocal link means that you probably don't have a monopoly on shamelessness.

I like Beta better, though. Lots of nifty stuff you can do.

Marie: No problem, glad I could recommend you. I'm trying to find new blogs to read and after some initial misadventures am finding loads of great ones all over the place.

Readers: more links are likely to follow.

I suspect that you get your paperback copy by printing your stuff on your own printer. I think they'd have too many takers to fulfill that otherwise.

Anyway, I'm with you. I keep worring I might get hit by bus and die and someone will find this novel and wonder what on earth I thought I was doing going around telling people I was writing a novel. There's no way I want to a hardcopy of it hanging around - I'd never dare step foot outside of the house!
