A Literary Minefield

Over my lunch break, I’ve been browsing the scam warning websites of various writers’ advocacy groups. Geez, there are a lot of insidious bottom-feeders lying in wait to prey on the dreams and aspirations of young writers. Anybody out there who is thinking about getting serious about writing, be sure to read these sites I’ve linked to. Forewarned is forearmed.

I can’t help it, but I enjoy reading about complete and utter jerks getting their comeuppance. I’m sure, though, that the victims involved would rather move on and forget the whole thing ever happened. Witness the epic struggle over the Woodside Agency scam, which morphed into one of the worst cases of Internet harassment the new medium has yet experienced. As I say, forewarned is forearmed.

I’ve spent most of the week working (yay!), interviewing (YAY!) and working on the Trenchcoat Farewell Project (phew!). That last item has kept me up late, and that’s never good, although I am pleased at how well things are going. I’ve laid out around 200 pages and am now into The Howling of the Wolves from Trenchcoat 2. I think this two-year-and-counting project will finally finish up in October!

I have an interview for a permanent position at 3:15 this afternoon. Wish me luck!
