Having taught writing at New York University, I feel very protective of fledgling writers! Aim high, keep your eye on the target, and don't look down. (My mentor, Margaret Atwood calls it "tightrope walking across Niagara Falls".)
So when Huffington Post asked me to blog for Writers' Wednesday, I thought it was time to talk about "Five Lies They Tell You About Writing". Here's the link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ca-belmond/writers-wednesday_b_1134918.html .

Hello to all my lovely readers,
To celebrate the publication of my fourth "Rather" novel, A RATHER REMARKABLE HOMECOMING, I am going to be a guest blogger for The Huffington Post, and also for my publisher, The Penguin Group.
At Huffington Post, I'll be blogging about books and writing. Check out "Six Words Writers Should Never Write". Here's the link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ca-belmond .
At Penguin, I'll talk about my experiences travelling, researching and writing my "Rather" series, beginning with "In Defense of Happy Endings". Here's the link: http://www.penguinusablog.com/in-defense-of-happy-endings-by-c-a-belmond .
