This was originally a snarky post to the driver who almost sent me into a ditch when I was out jogging this weekend, but cooler heads have prevailed. (Lady in the tan SUV, you can thank my husband. In the meantime, back away from the accelerator!) While I calm down, I’m sending you over to Vaughn Roycroft’s blog (Did you know Roycroft means Royal Craftsman? Neither did I, but he’s certainly well-named) for a post that compares house building to writing.
And when you get back, I am sending you right back out to buy Last Will, by Bryn Greenwood. I have quietly stalked Bryn’s blog for years, and whenever she posts a bit of what she’s working on, I can’t get it out of my mind. So when I had a chance to win this book, I couldn’t resist. And I won! And now I can’t put it down. It’s quirky and odd and funny and not like anything else I’ve read lately. So go buy her book, darn it. Particularly if you are a woman who drives a tan SUV. Because lady, after what my husband made me pull off this blog, you owe me.
I was going to be snarky about your typo…but it looks like you caught it ;o)! I always love reading your blog!!
I think I was still seeing red, so proofreading was tough, Helen! And thanks for reading!
Cool tee-shirt! Thanks so much for the link love, Liz! And for the awesome name-related compliment. I’ve been hearing great things about Last Will, so will check it out. Sort of wish we’d gotten the full-on snark… Maybe someday over a glass of wine at a conference we’ll get to hear from full-on snarky Liz. 🙂
I’m not sure the world deserves my full on snark, but I’ll definitely take you up on that glass of wine someday!
Oy, glad you’re around to pass on the link-love, especially since they concern two fine writers and people.
They are, aren’t they, Jan? : )
I’m late to the party! Thank for the book love, Liz. And hope the lady in the tan SUV gets an injury-free lesson to teach her to be more careful.
