Another writing lesson

The revelations I think I have about writing often prove to be, on further reflection, things Sharyn has been telling me for years. This one is probably another one of those:

I really thought, after I finished Empress of the World, that I’d learned how to write a novel.

I hadn’t.

I’d learned how to write that novel.

Now I’m in the process of learning how to write the next one.

    I don’t know what you did…but you have flooded my feeds! I’m all…Gordonzola was in Portland yesterday? I thought he was in England. ;)

    I’m guessing you combined blogs somehow…

    oh no! i was hoping that wouldn’t happen. i was importing stuff from the old blog, and i thought that back-dating the entries would keep them from showing up on the feed. apparently this is not the case. eeeeeek.
