They can be inspirational, though. I’m pondering spawning my own version of Mrs. Burk’s Parameter Rap http://www.teachertube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=734fe93831e3fb400ce8&page=1&viewtype=&category=
How’s this sound: Mizz Erica’s Grammar Rap. Perhaps some lyrics along the lines of "The subject and the verb must always agree CLAP If you write them wrong then fired you will be CLAP . . . " Hmmm, I think it will need more work!

See September 21, 2008 for the genesis of my “today is . . . ” postings.

The magazine is in the market for authors of well-written stories that have not previously been published. The publication considers a broad range of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror in the 2,500 to 8,000 range. They want interviews with high profile authors, media personalities and for book reviews. If you are also an artist, they are looking for cover artwork on a commissioned basis.
There is also a publishing arm: Aeon Press, which specializes (not surprisingly!) in Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror novels.

I’ve added another cover story to my clip file! Check out the Winter issue of the CVBR at http://www.chippewavalleybusinessreport.com/
And while you’re checking out publications, see the premiere of Kenton Whitman’s Nature Column in the Dunn County News at http://www.dunnconnect.com/articles/2009/02/26/outdoors/doc49a54e2484e82345625167.txt
Both these articles are proof of how important networking is for writers. A writer friend of mine, Kay Kruse-Stanton, put me and Mark Gunderman, the editor of the CVBR, in touch with each other when she took a job that prevented her from doing any more freelancing. And I put Kenton in touch with my friend, Barb Lyon, the editor of the Dunn County News. It’s not the Old Boys Network any longer, but it IS the Old Freelance Writers Network!
