“It was a dark and stormy night…” That opener may have worked for Snoopy, but it’s no way to start our memoirs and fiction.

AWE Registration Announcement

Okay, this is important. If you have bought your copy of Writing Alchemy: How to Write Fast and Deep…and if you have registered your copy, which gives you free Charter Membership in the Association for Writing Excellence (AWE)…then I have an important announcement.

When you register your copy, you need to open the email that comes to you telling you to confirm your registration. This is important. Aweber protects your name and email by confirming signups.

So if you haven’t confirmed, check the email. If you think you haven’t SEEN the email, then check your junk or spam file. Depending on how tightly you’ve set your email security, it’s possible for the email to get diverted.

If you’re concerned and can’t find the email, you can always send me an email and I’ll help you. I think I can send you a second confirmation email.
