Through the months of November and December, some fab writers would take over Daily (w)rite . At least twice a week, this blog would host posts on writing, by writers. I still have a few slots open for December, so I would welcome guest posts by writers who have something to say about the art, craft, and business of writing. Write me a mail at atozstories at gmail dot com to discuss this.

Writer E J Wesley has asked me a few questions about writing and also A to Z Stories of Life and Death. Please come and chat with me there. Also, I’m guest posting at Kelly McClymer’s blog today, talking about reading, writing and reading like a writer. Join the conversation and let us know what you think.
