From the Editor:
Broadening Horizons

Carol Lindsay

The focus of Fiction Fix has always been, and continues to be "providing insightful how-to advice for fiction writers".  We want to provide our readers help in rolling up their sleeves and getting into the work of crafting fiction.  Or WAITing to craft fiction - as the case may be. (Words Accumulate In Time)

Administration of the Coffeehouse and Fiction Fix has turned out to be more fun and rewarding than I anticipated.  Not only do I get to meet (via e-mail) some writers who are out there making the dream come true, I hear about writers from all walks of life, from all over the world!

There is an amateur writing group in Scotland that has self-published two books of short stories and poetry.

There is an award-winning writer in Romania who struggles to make ends meet in an uncertain economy. 

I have asked these people to write an article sharing their experiences and their feelings about writing - and I extend the invitation to you. 

Beginning in the September edition, Fiction Fix will have a new column "Beyond F/Fixing".  This will be an open column for stories about writers from all walks of life. 

There are a thousand stories about town - and no town bigger than the Internet.

Please consider being a part of this column.
