Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

James W. Hall’s Hit Lit reviewed

Just finished reading James W. Hall’s Hit Lit, an analysis of 12 best-sellers written as much for the reader as the prospective novelist. My review is on Goodreads.http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12522710-hit-lit?utm_campaign=timeline&amp%3Butm_medium=cog_hovercard&amp%3Butm_source=facebook.com

Discovering an overlooked treasure

James W. Hall’s Hard Aground was published in 1992. I’m not sure how it slipped past me, since I’ve pretty much grabbed each of his books at the time of their release. I had to jump back nearly 20 years to read Hard Aground after stumbling over it browsing the stacks at my local library. Time travel has never been so much fun.

River Music gets a look at the Spring Agents Conference

The Atlanta Writers Club held its Fourth Annual Spring Agents and Editors Conference this past weekend at the Airport Westin Hotel.

Back in the classroom again

I’ll be back in the classroom beginning May 14 for a series of workshops on Technology for Writers, which I’m offering on behalf of the Atlanta Writers Club.

The first workshop will focus on the nuts and bolts of file management. We’ll cover file names, folder structure, revisions, archiving and organization under the umbrella theme “If You Can’t Find It, You Don’t Own It.”

Future sessions will cover the writer’s bookshelf (a guide to reference and source materials), software…
