Blog a Writer

Marie Tuhart has an awesome blog at Escape to an Erotic Fantasy. She had me as her guest there last week and it is a lovely spot to check out.  Jill

Roped and Ready

Marie Tuhart sold her first book, In Plain Sight, to The Wild Rose Press in August 2009. A native Californian, she looks forward to the day she can retire from the day job and write full time.

Blog a Blog – A Writer’s Mind

A Writer’s Mind, Sky Purington’s blog is a cool spot. I love the tranquil color and author interviews.

Here is Sky’s message to her blog readers:

Welcome to my blog! Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and read what’s on my mind. I’ve a vicious sense of humor, an apprecation for romance and a mad addiction to writing. Shall we gab?

So, if you like to gab, give A Writer’s Mind a try.  Jill James

The Naked Hero

I know I’ve blogged a blog for The Naked Hero before but there is an excellent post there about revising history. Changing the Classics. I’m taking about the white-washing (yes, I use that term deliberately) of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. I have never been a fan of the N word and I don’t believe in its use. My mommy and daddy would have had me drinking dish soap if I had used it. But, at the time of Twain’s writings it was in use and a valid word for his stories.

Mark Twain must be spinning in his grave. I would like to know who even thought they had the right to change Twain’s writings. As a writer, I’m appalled by the idea that years from now my words could be misconstrued and changed by anyone not happy with what I wrote. This is worse than copyright infringement.

Hope you will stop by the Naked Hero and leave a post to state your opinion….Jill James
