Birthdays: Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980), Mary McCarthy (1912-1989), Ian McEwan (1948), Robert Kraus (1925-2001)

Tip: Make a check list of things/words you need to look at in your story when editing. This can include not only the earlier list you made of redundancies, but also things like timelines, consistencies (hair/eyes stayed the same color), research points (especially for historicals).

Thought for the day: “Words are loaded pistols.” – Jean-Paul Sartre

Jumpstart: In one minute, list all the items you can think of in a mini-mart. Now, write a scene using those items that does NOT take place in a mini-mart.
