Sam The Plumber On “Preaching to the Choir”

Things continue here at a frenetic pace. After I finished off the first draft of WRITING FICTION FOR DUMMIES two weeks ago, just meeting my deadline, I then spent most of a week at a writing conference. It was great to see some of my loyal blog readers there, but when I got back, I already had a stack of chapters in my e-mail in-box with editorial revision comments.

So I’m now working on revisions. As I mentioned in my last post, the book is about 122,000 words, so it’s going to be a tremendously demanding job to get it all edited. I’m looking forward to getting the book complete and on store shelves (you can already see it listed on Amazon). The problem for me is that this book is one of three major projects I have going on right now, so I have very little free time.

When I get a chance to catch my breath, I’ll be back to a more regular blogging schedule. However, I thought I should post a quick note here to say that my latest column, featuring Sam the Plumber, is now posted online. Sam gave me a whole new perspective on the concept of “preaching to the choir.” I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on Sam’s thoughts.
