A While Between Drinks

... yes indeed it is, but I'm happy to report that the story I mentioned in the last post has been accepted by Aurealis. I've been trying on-and-off for a few years to get into that mag so it's nice to finally succeed. When I find out which issue and when it's coming out I'll be sure to post it here for your perusing pleasure.

I'm also reading Stephen King's On Writing at the moment. It's been on my hit-list for several years. Lots of really good advice, some of which I've heard before and some of which is totally new. I should add that I don't agree with everything he says. The more I go on in this writing game the more I realize how important it is to distinguish between good writing advice and an individual author's personal taste. Often the two things get intertwined to the point you can't tell them apart.

That said, it's an excellent book and I would happily recommend it.
