My wife got this fortune at a Chinese restaurant and gave it to me:
Four basic premises of writing: clarity, brevity, simplicity, and humanity.
That sums it up well, doesn't it?

Haven't written with any consistency of late. This coming week my novel gets one final read-through before going to CreateSpace. If all looks well, I'll heave a sigh of relief.

We're thawing out from our recent deep freeze, with temperatures back into the 60s after several days of rolling blackouts for many of us. Yesterday a friend said this was the coldest he'd ever experienced around here since the late 1940s. We had a half-dozen blackouts lasting up to two hours each, while at today's writers' group one person reported a three-hour stoppage and another person reported no outages at all. Above is a view of the Organ Mountains from partway up "A" Mountain on the outskirts of Las Cruces.
Next month, another member will conduct a program about self-publishing.
