James Scott Bell for Blog Pick Friday

Friday, November 19, 2010

Want to Be a Professional Writer? Act Like One.

Don't you love the picture that Jim picked for his blog post over at the Kill Zone? This is from Sunday, November 14th and worth every minute of your time. Just click on the link and get some advice from one of the best writing teachers around. This is a good reminder for everyone and doesn't become passé ever.

And if you haven't read Jim's book, The Art of War for Writers. I recommend you run out and buy it pronto. Here's the link. Enjoy!


  1. Hi Jillian. I just popped over from Jody's blog to check out yours. :) I love that photo! I attended a conference last month and had opportunities to chat with James Scott Bell and attend several of his workshops. It's one thing to have knowledge but something else again to communicate it well. He's one of the best communicators I've run into and a really nice person, too.

    Congratulations on the upcoming release of your novel. I'll watch for it.

  2. Hi Carol,
    So nice of you to visit. JSB is an awesome teacher. One of the best. What conference were you at? That guy gets around.:) I've always said that when I have difficulty grasping a writing concept Jim can so easily help me get it, whether its at a conference or through one of his books.

    Drop by anytime and bring your friends.:) If you want me to keep you posted on the book stuff just sign up for a newsletter. I'll send one out after I get my book cover and then closer to May when Secrets of the Heart releases.

    Have a great Thanksgiving!

  3. Jillian, it was the Surrey Int'l Writers' Conference held in a suburb of Vancouver, Canada. I've attended since 2004... quite the experience.

  4. Thanks Carol,
    I bet that's a beautiful place. Have a great Sunday.
