Most of you here at More Cowbell know that I teach computer classes in my day job. I am a huge fan of learning and growing your understanding of any topic.
Last weekend, I posted some Freaking Great Writing Advice and asked all of you what was the best thing you’ve ever heard about writing.
Laura Drake said: Whatever falls out of Margie Lawson’s mouth.
And, after a few Margie classes, I’m pretty sure she’s right. Margie helps you dig down to find the writer you always dreamed of being. Plus, she does it without touching your voice.
That’s talent, huh?
My current goal is to brush up my skills enough and get Margie-ized enough that I can go visit her on the mountain for her Immersion Master Class. I am dying to go to it.
If you haven’t experienced Margie yet, I highly recommend you go to Lawson Writers Academy and take a gander.
As for the milestone, yesterday (when I completely lost control in the comments section) we put up our 500th post here.
I honestly didn’t know I had 500 things to say, so it was kind of a trip to see that number in my dashboard. Holy cats, you guys are awesome!!
Trust me, if you didn’t entertain me so much in the comments, I wouldn’t post so much.
Now…on to the giveaway! Once a week, we’re giving away a cool bumper sticker that I keep on my bulletin board. It says: “I’ve got a fever, and the only prescription is More Cowbell!”
Today’s winner is Zack Kullis! He and Gloria Richard did the finest blogjack I’ve ever seen yesterday (that’s where the comments come alive and become better than the post). Hats off to Zack. Congratulations! Email me your mailing address and I’ll send it out.
Who is the best writing teacher you’ve experienced, whether through a book or live? Here’s your chance to sound off about it in the comments. Enquiring minds love to know these things here at More Cowbell!
