Books & Things Thursday - Maria Zannini Interrogation, Uh, Interview

Maria Zannini is wanted for questioning in the case of the Disappearing Fiction Writer. Her husband, Greg was the first witness we brought in for questioning. Q. How often do you see your wife? Is it true she doesn’t write when you’re at home? A. I see her a couple of times a month. And yes, when I’m home she spends most of her time with me unless she has a deadline to meet. If you don’t hear from her in her usual social circles, she’s either working—or putting me to work. Q What is it we keep hearing about her nonfiction work? Why has this cropped up all of a sudden?  A. It’s not really all of a sudden. I’ve been nagging her for YEARS to write nonfiction rather than fiction. She’s really good at it too.

Books & Things Thursday - NaNoWriMo

Hi everybody, Between work and NaNoWriMo , I've been falling behind in my online duties and haven't been e-mailing, blogging, facebooking, tweeting or any of the other 'ing'ing there is to do around here. And missing visiting YOUR blogs and commenting! I'm doing great with NaNoWriMo 'ing, though. Even though I didn't write one word on Tuesday or Wednesday, I'm still ahead of the game with well over 20,000 words. At 1,667 words a day (to reach 50,000 words by Nov. 30), I'd only have to be at 16,667 by the end of today and, as I said, I'm well over that. And I'm about to hit the books for another three hours. As well as do the dishes, take out the trash, deal with the kitty-cleaning and so on and so forth. Cool updates : Next Thursday, I have an Interrogation, uh, I mean, of course, an Interview with author Maria Zannini . (It's a fun post, be sure to check it out!) On Thursday, December 1, I've got guest blogger Feliza Ca
