Writer Thoughts. Yeah, I'm Getting Into the Groove

I got Al Capone Does My Shirts from the library today, hoping to get right onto the Newbery Honor Book bandwagon. Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of reading a stodgy new mystery by P.D. James, an author I used to really like.

Karin Gillespie's blog Southern Comfort has been a favorite of mine. She's started specializing in book marketing recently, and now she's making me tense because I have a new book coming out next spring.

And, finally, I'm thinking of writing something about how grade schoolers shouldn't be encouraged to think in terms of "publishing." I will use a martial arts analogy. I've just started to think about this today so that's about all I have to say.
