Buy viagra I’ve neglected this blog shamefully in the past year, but I’m planning to revive it. I’m trying not to be so perfectionist, so some blogs will be long and meaty, others will be quick and frivolous, some  will be about what I’m up to apart from writing, and the occasional pretty picture, just because. As well, I’m going to put up a series of articles for writers or aspiring writers, because I love thinking about and writing about the process of writing.

1) Carve out the time to write. You go into your workroom, close the door, saying in a firm manner to whoever you live with, “Don’t interrupt me, for the next two hours I’m writing.”

You name your file – hmmm, what are you going to call it? You brainstorm some titles. You think of something fabulous. You start to type it—but wait, what if someone else has already used that title? Better check on the internet. You Google your title. Damn, someone else has used it. Google the alternatives. Finally you settle on your fourth choice, but at least it’s yours. You name the file. Excellent. But while you’re on the web you quickly check Twitter to see if any of your friends are tweeting. They are. You drop in a few comments.

The Georgette Heyer Conference

I’m getting ready to fly up to Sydney to attend the Georgette Heyer Conference on the weekend. 

I’m looking forward to it. I missed the first one a few years ago — bought a ticket, but wasn’t able to attend — so I’m looking forward to this one.

I’m giving a short talk on VENETIA, and why I love it. It’s not my favorite Heyer — but only because I can’t pick just one favorite. I have a bunch of favorites, but I chose VENETIA because it’s the one I usually recommend to readers who’ve never read Heyer before, especially if they’re romance readers. 

When I come back I’ll share a little of my speech, and a few photos of the event.
What’s your favorite Heyer?
