I will be making up for spending my birthday at work with sushi rolls and a coca-cola birthday cake with fudge frosting, which will then be doused thoroughly in mini chocolate chips. I'll try to remember to take a picture. ;)
Anyway. Since I'm away from home (and therefore from the bulk of people who would actually celebrate my birthday with me), I wanted to celebrate the ol' blog-o-sphere way: with a giveaway!
Nonexistent reader: Jee Charlie, what are you giving away??
I want to give away one of my favoritest writing books, Save the Cat by Blake Snyder.
This book is excellent for plotting; I've used it to outline two books so far. I recommend it to anyone looking to craft a story, whatever it may be.
Nonexistent reader #2: But Charlie! I already own Save the Cat!
If that's the case, I will give away The Writer's Portable Mentor by Priscilla Long, which is the best book on prose that I've found thus far.
Doing the giveaway the fair-and-square way--leave a comment and random.org will choose a winner for Monday, April 8th. If you don't have your contact info listed in your profile or on your blog, you might want to slip that in there as well. ;)
