Have you ever been frisked?

I’ve never been frisked, have you? I was sort of looking forward to it, so I wrote a guest post for Joe Konrath’s blog, because he’s known for his no-holds-barred frisking skills. Only to realize that what he does over there is “fisk” people.


Frisk, fisk, what a difference an “R” can make.  You’d think I would have learned this lesson the last time I tried to “rice” my knee.

Okay, yes, I’m being deliberately obtuse. But I really did write a guest post and it really is over there today. And I’m not even a little bit disheveled, as one might be after a thorough frisking.

[Dear TSA, you know I’m kidding about wanting to be frisked, right? Right?]

So, some of you might want to go over there and read my post. Maybe you’ll even want to comment on it. Because the only thing worse than not getting frisked is having to listen to crickets, thousands and thousands of them, all day long.

Come on over and chat with me. Staying on topic is entirely optional. As always. Feel free to bring along the consonant of your choice. Just have a care if you decide to switch out that “K” for a “T”.

    Hi KD

    I’ve just read your guest post. I loved it. Your writing sparkles with self-deprecating wit, or just plain old fashioned wit, or whatever it is – but you have it, and it’s a joy to read.

    BTW. Thanks for introducing me to a new blog.

    Hope work on the novellas is going well.



  2. Thanks, Richard! It was a fun post to write. I’ve had a week filled with non-writing things but am eager to dive back into it in the coming week.

    Yes, Konrath’s blog is a great resource for anyone getting ready to publish, by any method. Worth reading through some of the archives. I think some people are put off by his abrasive pull-no-punches style, but I find it a refreshing change from those who politely dance around a topic without ever really saying anything. Very informative and often uncannily prophetic.
