Hello My (His) Name is Simon

and he likes to do writings!


Simon C. Larter from Constant Revisions is the best ever! He is a silent partner in my crit group which means that he is kind enough to critique OUR work, without expecting us to return the favor because he doesn't have a novel ready right now. How cool is that?

He is also an amazing writer. Check out his blog linked above to find out more but even more so than that I strongly suggest you read some of his fiction here, here, here, and here. I haven't even had time to read all of them, personally, but the two I have perused are AMAZING examples of words used together to form sentences, then assembled into paragraphs. Check them out.

Anyway Simon is also holding a fun little contest. Check the details here. That is all.

I've always wanted to form words into paragraphs. Anyone who can do that well is amazing, like Simon!

I can't believe I was FB friends with Simon and NOT a follower of his blog! Shame, JD--total shame!

Thanks for the links, Matt.

I think Simon offers to help out so he can steal all of our ideas.

KIDDING. I am a huge fan of Simon. And he's pretty funny too. You picked a great writer to promote.

Sometimes it's nice to be the silent crit partner, because you can build up the Cred for when the novel is ready! :)

Thanks for the contest mention...I love contests!
