Thanks for these! Looking forward to clicking the links--as soon as I get back from making lunch for my sick kids (as in they're physically ill--not gross--though we won't rule that out either). ;-)

Eek! I hope they recover soon.

By the way, Joan. Did you ever get around to doing that interview for last year's Puddle contest?

Yes, I did--and I thought I sent it to you. But obviously you didn't get it which means I probably never sent it. LOL I'll go email it to you right now. =)

The Larry Brooks article was especially helpful--also Anna Stan's.

Have kept the one on titles (I have the devil of a job with these, often end up using the less-than-inspiring working title for my little stories...)

I'm the same, which is why I prefer to start with the title and work out the actual story from there :)
