Dance Party Time

I promised you some dancing. Today is for elegance; tomorrow we'll really let down our hair. But for now, ponder today's question: Which writing/agent/editor blog is a must-read for you?

Today's Prize: (All you need to do is be/become a follower of this blog. Then leave a comment in the comments section. It's as simple as that.)

"The Writer's Workshop in a Box" which includes:

           - The Art of Writing, a book to get writers started
Writers Workshop In A Box: The Ultimate Tool to Begin Your Writing Life
          - thirty cards presenting daily exercises for the writing life
          - an exquisite blank book with a pen
The Art of Writing is a course book that addresses writing techniques as well as root problems every writer encounters: creative blocks, getting started but not finished, uneven writing, lack of confidence, uncontrollable plots, and ill-defined characters. Each "class" endows the writers with skills to overcome these problems, and provides writing tips that can be applied to both fiction and nonfiction. The book contains lessons that draw on the expertise of some of the great masters of creative writing:
- Dorothea Brande (author of Becoming a Writer)
- Eric Maisel (author of Deep Writing and Affirmations for Artists)
- Julia Cameron (author of The Artist's Way, The Vein of Gold, and The Right to Write)
The Writer's Workshop in a Box is the ideal gift for every budding writer and an effective way to inspire new authors to embrace their art and career.

    He answers ooh-gobs of questions and offers detailed responses. There are others (I like Blood Red Pencil, too).
