The marvelously talented Alicia Rasley and I’ve been friends since before she and Lynn Kerstan won the RITA. When I went to RWA conferences, I always attended her workshops because they were so much fun and I learned an incredible amount.
Then I discovered “On-line Alicia.” She has the most wonderful web site of articles to help writers and answers questions. Really, when I was stuck, I’d head over there for inspiration and help. I don’t know if this is still available, but she had a worksheet which helped outline an entire novel in thirty minutes. I used that over and over when I got lost and had no idea what happened next. I don’t know if I would have published without all the information and help and answers I received from Alicia, but I know her tips really helped and smoothed the path. She’s taught writing and been an editor. She really knows what she’s talking about.
I cannot tell you how excited I am both that she’ll be blogging at Notes from Butternut Creek and that her wonderful books will be available again. Please stop by tomorrow for her blog Five Bad Habits of Good Writers.
