New to blogging and would love to hear about tips on writing, publishing websites and how you find my writing.

"It’s easy enough trying to avoid social contact, hell we got Facebook, Twitter, MSN and whatnot to keep us connected. But you really do need that almost physical contact by going out and meeting people, otherwise you shrivel up like a dry flower and whither before time has been able to decide whether you were a keeper or not. For that reason I drag myself outside… chronic pains included."

Dani Smith (daniquickdraw) | 30 comments Ah...Ireland! My mother is Irish, and I have always felt my heart ache when thinking of the old ancestral homeland. Will definitely be checking in on this one!

And the Oscar Wilde quote? Brilliant! Almost as good as his last words: "Either this wallpaper goes, or I do."

For the one book I'm co-writing, my lead character is Irish. For my solo books, I'm planning on frequently making use of, to one degree or another, Irish terrorists, retired or otherwise, on both sides of the equation.

Thanks! I'll keep it in mind.

For the book I've been writing, the last act takes place in Greece. I've had the good fortune of having an online friend in Athens who's been very helpful.
