An exclusive excerpt from What Doesn't Kill You by Iris Johansen - http://ethanjones.blog.com/2012/04/1...iris-johansen/ My interview with Ms. Johansen will come to my blog next Wednesday.

Enjoy,

I'd started a blog over at Goodreads, and I finally got off my lazy butt and made an official, prettier one. I may register a domain name and make something super-fancy one day, but this will suffice for now: Thea Landen

My first "official" post on the new blog is about writing habits, good and bad. It was actually inspired by a thread in the AW forums, so I made sure to give credit where credit is due.

I was rather disturbed by the idea of Katherine Heigl being in One for the Money. Janet Evanovich is probably happy one of her books is finally a film.

I happened to read a post by an writer here who off-handedly mentioned that small press writers weren't really writers. It inspired my shiny new, updated blog post at Guerrilla Warfare For Writers:

I am talking about Themes and Stuff on my blog today. It is a discussion of why I think themes are important in fiction, and my strategies for implementing them.

I just wrote a blog post about preparing a proper cup of tea. Readers and writers in need of some high-quality caffeine should read it!

I went to my school's mini-party for the English grads. It was very awkward.
