Just a quick post to let everyone know ….

This evening, the name of each person who commented on my interview with Erik Weibel was placed in the random name picker tool I got for free online. (http://www.miniwebtool.com/random-name-picker/)  It’s the first time I’ve used it for this and it works so well I will probably use it for future draws.

We have a Sue Harrison book winner! & Important announcement for writers!

This post is a doubly exciting one for me, a two-part privilege.


Announcing the winner of a Sue Harrison novel:

My young grandson came to visit us awhile this evening, so at 6 PM EST (7:00 for me) I asked him to draw one name out of the basket of entries — the name of one person to win a Sue Harrison novel, winner’s choice of title.  The winner is ……   ** drum roll **


 Bill G.!!

Congratulations,  Bill! Please check your email for my request for your mailing address and the title of the book you want to receive from Sue Harrison, if you haven’t already said that in your comment.  She will happily get that book into the mail for you. 🙂

THANK YOU, EVERYONE, FOR PARTICIPATING! It was fun for both Sue and me.


Have you been watching my countdown clock? It now says 2 days to go! I can’t stand the wait, so here is what I’ll be bringing you that I have been eagerly waiting to tell you.  🙂  On Thursday morning,  January 24, at 8:00 EST (9:00 for me) a new series begins here on my blog, then the fourth Thursday of each month the next installment will be posted. Curious?

This is for you, if:

  • you are a writer,
  • you are a writer of fiction,
  • you have been thinking about trying your hand at writing fiction,
  • you are a fiction writer who would love some tips about how to give your characters more depth,
  • you want to learn more about fiction writing but don’t have the time or money to spare right now to go to a workshop,
  • you are a Sue Harrison fan.

That’s right!  Sue Harrison has enthusiastically agreed to guest post here, but then offered much more than that. She will post here once a month, the fourth Thursday of each month, so that you can learn from her experience. How cool is that!!

Now you know why I am excited about this! Sue is going to teach us about Writing The Third Dimension Here is how she describes it: “Basically, the
concept is for writers to write their characters, scenes, and plots in such
a way that they “pop” off the two-dimensional page and assume a
three-dimensional presence in the reader’s mind – as if the reader had
actually lived the story.

I’m thinking this will be of help to me when I finally put my attention to the editing and revising of my NaNoWriMo novel – which I have to finish writing first. It should even help with writing picture books. I’m sure it will be of help to you in your writing.

I am also going to set up a page for this series so that not only can you find Sue’s posts here, but you can also click on the page WRITING THE THIRD DIMENSION (under Writers’ Helps & Workshops on the drop down menu), and link back to whichever topic you want to study.

I   AM   EXCITED !!  I hope you will come back and check this out. For your convenience, you can sign up for emails to be informed of when there is a new post on my blog. (top left corner) I don’t want you to miss any of Sue’s teaching. Rest assured that I do not use anyone’s addresses for anything else. It’s all done automatically through WordPress, anyway. 🙂

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

Thanks to everyone for entering the draw, for leaving comments, for reading the review and the interview.  There are more reviews and interviews to come.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
