Lol, I appreciate the sentiment, James, though I can't claim to be the first person to start a links list.

Best of luck with your new weekly column :)

My fav this week--the Intern's reasons why you should rewrite that scene. It should be required reading to anyone starting a novel.

Greg Frost's was quite heart-warming. (Also, I confess to loving his use of the phrase "gibbering madness.")

And thanks for the shout-out!
