On Writing

The BBC's kidnapped Gaza correspondent, Alan Johnston, has been missing for one hundred and one days.

As part of their continuing coverage and efforts to keep Alan's plight before the eyes of the world, they have posted a piece he wrote about a year ago on the art of journalism. Reading it, I found myself repeatedly nodding my head and murmurring, "Yes, yes." For, though he was talking about radio reportage, Alan wrote a lovely, concise article on fiction writing as well. I highly recommend it to all here.

Wow! The new and improved Arty blog looks GREAT, Catreona! ♥

And what great timing, as I am just finishing my book...
which, by the way, mentions Howard Dean and the bloggers!

:)

Of course it does, listener. What kind of a Deaniac would you be if you *failed* to mention our Howard? LOL

LOL!

Well, given that it's a book on Contemplative Spiritual Guidance...
nah, you're right.
Ha!

Haven't seen you online for a couple days, Cat.
I hope you're feeling okay!!
XOXOXXX

Thanks, listener. Just tired. The heat doesn't help either. Phew! Global warming does zilch for me! *fanning herself*

Yeah, Cat, I hear you!
And we're supposed to have 90's tomorrow!
I can't say I'm sorry I have to work at the Bookshop tomorrow,
as it's air conditioned!

Take care!
Have something tall and cool!
