Bob Mayer and Jenny Crusie co-wrote a romantic adventure Don’t Look Down that released last April. Last January they started a blog, He Wrote, She Wrote, detailing the adventures of writing with a partner, the writing business, and Living the Dream. They’re pretty hysterical to read, plus they share great advice on the craft of writing.
Starting in January 2007, their blog is going to be dedicated to the craft of writing. Basically, it’ll be a free on-line class where you can ask questions in the comment section. I’ve listened to both of them teach on CDs from RWA conferences and they are both very good at it. It’s going to be a great resource, one I plan to take advantage of. Plus, it’s free. You can’t beat that.
Nano update: As you can see, I finally cracked 20K. Not even half way to the goal. I’m not going to make it. At this point, I’m hoping to make 35K, which is a good pace for me normally if I make my daily writing word count.
And, I’m still beating all my buddies . . . someone owes me chocolate.
You are so brave to be doing NaNo. I knew I couldn't afford the time this year. Glad to see you're beating your buddies. LOL
That novel sounds similar to something Robin, Ron, Dineen, and I did with a series/anthology of full-length romantic suspense. It was such fun, and such a growth experience!! I look forward to checking out the blog you mentioned.

IF, I beat you? IF? Right. I know you don't do losing well. Suck it up. I like the expensive stuff.

They make this stuff in the south called chocoloate…I'll send some of that if you happen to beat me. But I'm planning on finishing strong (probably just a big cut and paste job from my crappy first novel…who's gonna know, you know?) I don't do losing well.
Don't feel too bad, Jennifer. I just hit 19,680 today on the Nano. My intentions were good. Life just gets in the way.

I'm sticking my tongue out at you. You are not getting chocolate from me. Hmpff.
