My "other" blog--one that I've set up for this summer's NCCAT seminar in the short story--is eating up all my "news blog" time, so visit me there. Members are welcome; visitors of all stripes are welcome. There are quite a few things of interest to novice and professional writers.
Already up are:
a greeting featuring "hard work and joy," from Philip Lee Williams, Georgia author of twelve books, mostly fiction;
a response from Phil to a question about teaching creative writing and how to get students to "focus on their work";
Marjorie Hudson on place, shifting from "creative nonfiction" to fiction, the line between "making up" and "being accurate," and other interesting matters;
a tongue-in-cheek piece from Corey Mesler about writing his novel-in-dialogue, Talk;
a greeting from Ron Rash;
Ingrid Hill talking about how she chased down a WalMart trucker to do research for Ursula, Under.
Carole Fungaroli Sargent on--well, I've forgotten, we talked about so many possiblities--and more!

Oh, and I'm going to extend the book giveaway for ten days, mainly because I was lazy and only listed it at Bookloons. See the May 20 post in archives for how-to-do--http://thepalaceat2.blogspot.com/2005/05/midnight-crier-at-200-am-ingledoves.html.
Seek Giacometti’s “The Palace at 4 a.m.” Go back two hours. See towers and curtain walls of matchsticks, marble, marbles, light, cloud at stasis. Walk in. The beggar queen is dreaming on her throne of words…You have arrived at the web home of Marly Youmans, maker of novels, poetry collections, and stories, as well as the occasional fantasy for younger readers.

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
