Go to to check out picture with Good Morning America's Mark Curtis and the class. His book is available on Amazon. A link is on his website:


  1. Our writing group met today and we had a discussion about dots versus em dashes. Two of us have learned that the dots are for pauses and em dash for interruptions. Someone else said that the dots are to be used in dialogue and the em dash in narrative. Anyone out there know for sure?
