Graceland, MidSouthCon, Etc.

In transit tomorrow, but just a couple of photo albums of possible interest. (And above a photo I think got left out of the Memphis photo set I posted earlier.)



Had a lovely time but will be happy to be home. Met many wonderful people. And C.J. Cherryh is seriously amazing. She should do a book on writing.

    C.J. Cherryh’s The Dreamstone and The Tree of Swords and Jewels (I read the latter first) amazed me. I was lost in the novels. Can you tell us more about what she had to say? Safe travels.

    It’s hard to give you specifics. It’s more that in just a few words, using images and metaphors that immediately gained traction in your mind, she dispensed incredibly good writing advice in incredibly condensed form. That’s a real skill. I’ve seen writers talk on and on about a subject and not give as good advice as she gave in just a couple of sentences.

    I understand. She does the very same thing in her novels. She takes you right in. I think I’ll go pick up a few more of her titles and study.
