SHE WROTE: This Is a Test
We're starting to get next year's workshop blog lined up. It won't be here on Blogger, so if you have trouble finding it next year, you can always go to jennycrusie.com and click on the link there to get to it. It'll have an rss feed and also an rss for the comments which is nice. I think. And you wouldn't believe how great the interface is. It's searchable so you can find old topics with no problem and there's a table of contents . . . Mollie has done an amazing job again.
Anyway, this test is for the forums. As you know, we'll post the first craft post on Sunday and then follow-up on Thursday, and then on Saturday we'll stop the comments and move everything on that topic over to the CherryForums where the discussion can go on forever if you want. I'm just not sure how to move you there. So I put the revised syllabus up over there
and invited people to criticize it. This means you. Now I want to see how much trouble people are going to have getting there from here. I don't want to shove a bunch of lemmings off a cliff the first week in January. So I thought I'd shove just a few lemmings off a cliff the first week in December. Once again, you.
So to see if this works, I'd appreciate it if some of you would go to Cherry Forums. I posted the syllabus in Writing Craft which is under the Writing Topic but you can't see it because you have to register to get in there. Registering is easy, just click on "Register (newbies!)" (that's Mollie talking) and choose a username, give your e-mail (no salemen will call and you will not be put on a mailing list although mine is really cool) and put in a password. Once you're approved (takes about ten minutes), the Writing Craft topic miraculously appears above "Writing Life" and you click on it and then go to the HWSW Writing Topics and see if you like where I moved POV. No, it's not next week. (We ask people to register for the craft topic because people discuss their work there and it's the one place we figure should be protected.) When we put up the HWSW Discussion Board, it'll be right there under Writing Life, so you won't have any trouble finding it.
In other news, Bob and I may be MIA for awhile. We're on the last week of Agnes and it's really crunch time. It's good stuff and we're happy with it, but we're not doing much except typing and sending terse e-mails. For example, we just discovered we have characters named Franklin and Frankie. It takes a year to see this. And Wilkes and Wilson. How do we miss these things? Then there are the big fixes. But we're doing good. We'll just be gone for a couple of days.
Now go over that cliff. Thank you.
