One of the Top Ten Essays on Writing, Ever. Period.

I was just thinking of Jim Kelly today, and I realized I have never before thought to share his brilliant essays on writing here. My all-time favorite of his: Murder Your Darlings. I would say more about him and his work, but it would just sound fangirlish. Go read.

There’s tons of other great stuff on his site. If you’re a Connie Willis fan, you must also indulge in Excerpts from Willis Watch.

And if you’d like to observe some true mastery of the short form, go read some of his stories. Congratulations on the new book, sir!
