Actually, I remember reading a wonderful story, I think it was entitled "Don't
Tease the Animals" (?) that had Nick stalking a suspect that turned into a
werewolf.  He starts teasing it and gets trounced -- very funny and well-done.
Wish I could remember the author!

This is a forward from a writers' list that I'm on. I thought some of you

enjoyed over the years. :-)

Greetings FWC Members and Tidbits Subscribers

First -- some special announcements before moving on to the tidbits inside
this issue:

This is the last issue of Tidbits to go out to my general mailing list of
4200. Starting with the next issue, Tidbits will now be available only to FWC
members. Tidbits will continue to announce markets, contests, storm warnings,
conferences and other items of interest to writers. FWC members can also use
Tidbits to find online or offline critique groups and to toot their horns
about successes. (Occasionally, I might send out a Tidbits Special Edition to
the entire list if something comes up that needs wide exposure.)

In addition, FWC will not be holding any more online chats at this time. In a
nutshell, I am having to cease and desist with all free services I've been
offering. With 4200 subscribers the workload has become unwieldy. Only 200 of
those 4200 are actual FWC members, but 200 is a good size and I need to
devote my time to paying members. If 4000 of you decide to join, then we'll
be able to offer you even more than we have been.

As many of you know FWC has had a lot of problems with the website and
servers in the last few months. I am pleased to announce that a brand new
website will be up and functional in about two weeks. (The old one is still
there for now, too. www.fictionwriters.com.)

Membership in FWC continues to offer free consultation, free critiquing, a
hard-copy bimonthly newsletter with interviews with agents and editors,
discounts on FWC email courses, and all sorts of help on how to write better
and learn how to get published--but in two weeks the annual membership fee
will be raised slightly to help defray rising costs.

Those who join FWC now though, in the next two weeks, (or renew) can still
join or renew at the old fees: $64 for regular membership, $59 for full time
students or seniors (65+), $75 for outside the US.

SPECIAL OFFER
The first ten people to join or renew membership will receive a free new
how-to book for writers. Go to www.fictionwriters.com and click on Join FWC.
(If you are renewing, type Renew in the comments box.)

ANOTHER SPECIAL OFFER
Sign up for one of our email courses in the next two weeks and take 10
percent off the lower FWC member fee. Go to www.fictionwriters.com and click
on Email Courses to see all the descriptions and to register. (I am teachng
the Elements of Novel Writing course now, not the previous instructor.)

I look forward to working with you in the future as members of FWC.

Now, let's move on to the Tidbits inside this issue:
