I also recently noticed that a book Bob agented is now out, 99 Ways to Tell a Story: Exercises in Style. It's a comic version of an apparently well-known prose book that I should probably have read. But the comics are fun to read, and clearly useful for any comic artists out there, and possibly for prose writers too. V. clever.
I took a break from writing to read blogs and glance at CNN. Miers withdrew her nomination for the Supreme Court! The White Sox won the World Series! There's an awful lot of news going on out there in the world, and I've been missing it with all the staring at the computer screen. I actually have no feelings on the White Sox win, but as a Chicagoan, I will dutifully cheer with the rest of them. Yay, Sox!
