Live, from my writing burrow: I actually use MT's bit of advice, though I automatically leave off the damns. Saves the editor work.
One of the best pieces of writing advice I ever received.

A huge cheer for my friend Heather Webb, whose novel RODIN'S LOVER comes out today. This story is already receiving rave reviews. As the New York Journal of Book says, “Heather Webb’s emotionally charged novel and rich language mirror Camille Claudel’s talent as a sculptor.” Congratulations, Heather!
The HFA Co-op is thrilled to celebrate the publication day of RODIN'S LOVER by our member author, Heather Webb. Leave a comment or share for a chance to win a copy.
As a woman, aspiring sculptor Camille Claudel has plenty of critics, especially her traditional mother. But when Auguste Rodin makes Camille his apprentice—and his muse—their passion inspires groundbreaking works. Yet, Camille’s success is overshadowed by her lover’s rising star, and her obsessions cross the line into madness. "Rodin’s Lover" brings to life the volatile love affair between one of the era’s greatest artists and a woman entwined in a tragic dilemma she cannot escape.
"Masterfully crafted…a larger-than-life love story full of passion and tragedy. Webb captures the era and characters to perfection."–RT Book Reviews, starred review
"You'll be drawn into this story of obsession and passion."–Cosmopolitan

Those of you who have read MRS. POE (thank you, thank you!) might remember the scene in which Frances first falls for Samuel Osgood. Samuel woos her with talk about the painter Gilbert Stuart, in particular about how Stuart had difficulty getting George Washington to smile for his portrait. DEAR MR. WASHINGTON, which comes out today across the U.S., looks at Gilbert's struggles with Washington from the point of view of Stuart's kids. I like to think that they got Washington to forget those painful dentures for just one ridiculous moment. You can see the results today on a dollar bill.
