Woe is I by Patricia T. O'Conner

I don't know if you've noticed, but I'm writing more lately, and enjoying the process a lot. I don't know what to credit it to, but it's certainly due in part to a conversation a week ago with Roger Green about his blogging process. So, thanks, Roger.

You HAVE been a blogging fool lately I've noticed, er, not that I'm calling you a fool or anything.

King's book really is one of the great texts, and the Elements Of... are all excellent. I haven't read Woe Is I, I really must give that a try sometime.
