SnappyWINNER of the $25 B&N gift card for their BUCKET LIST contributon was Sharon Buck. I was sure that Beverly’s would win it, but I asked one of my beta readers to pick the winner and Sharon’s was chosen. Thanks to all for leaving their great comments!

FLORIDA NEWS – Get thee to the 10th Annual FWA conference in Lake Mary. It starts Thursday and ends this coming Sunday – but you can still get registered! Visit http://floridawriters.net.

If you’re in the St. Johns/Duval/Flagler/Putnam county areas in Florida, a dynamite 2-day writers BOOTCAMP is being held right in St. Augustine on the beach! The ACRA group is hosting workshops over the two days, lunches included, and agent meetings with Lois Winston. A few chairs still available – go to http://acrarwa.com and get into the BOOTCAMP!!

Question of style…

Is e-mail or email the correct way to write the term? According to the Associated Press, either one is correct, but which form you use is up to the publication that you are writing for! You should always check to make sure you know what style guide they require (usually on the website, but a call will clear up that question, too) and then be sure to present your writing guided by that style.

The Last 50 Pages…
Have you put as much work into making that last 50 pages as good as your first 50? For tips, exercises and methods to do that, be sure to read the Nov/Dec Writers Digest!!! If you don’t subscribe, you can get it in your local library or most large book stores.

Keep writing!! Remember, you can’t edit or sell a blank page!!!
