Debs as Mentors…sort of! Deb Kristy’s words of wisdom are featured in The New Writer’s Handbook 2007, the inaugural edition of a new annual collection of articles to refresh and upgrade any writer’s skills, with advice on craft and career development. It offers an eclectic mix of expert how-tos, short pieces on creativity, marketing, and professional issues, and other insights on being a successful writer today. Of course Deb Kristy’s bit, the How Many Writers Does It Take To Screw In A Lightbulb thing originally posted at Good Girls Kill and given wordwide props on Miss Snark, is slightly less instructional than the other pieces. Deb Kristy is apparently doomed to go down in history as a smartass. Which one supposes is better than going down in history as a dumbass.

Hear, hear! I’ve heard good things about that book. I didn’t hear there was a smartass section, though.
According to Merriam-Webster’s definition, wisdom is: “a — accumulated philosophic or scientific learning; b — ability to discern inner qualities and relationships; c — good sense.” Ahem, you more than qualify for dispensing what you’ve learned. Congratulations, Kristy!
Very cool! 🙂
