Catch You Later, Traitor has been officially published. Whenever I publish a book, I always reread my absolute favorite book about professional writing and the writer’s life, Edward Gorey’s The Unstrung Harp.
I think there is more truth about writing in this work of genius than forty books about writing.
But, be advised, if you are new to the work of Edward Gorey it will not be what you expect. It will, beyond all else, surprise you and make you laugh. But, if you are a writer, a good laugh always helps.
Get hold of it. Keep it near your desk. Trust me. You need it.
And since I’m in the mood to make you laugh I will share this story, which was told to me.
A seven year old was shown a typewriter for the first time. It was demonstrated. His response? “Cool; a computer that prints right away.”
Have a good day.
