Terrific links, as usual, Jon. The one on concept by Larry Brooks was particularly interesting to me.

I wish I'd read that particular post back in 2010, before I managed over 18 months without writing any new fiction.

I just read a blog post that was too powerful not to share. And I can't wait until Friday to share it, either!

Excellent thoughts for writing - but it's really made me think realistically, too, about people and the lies we allow to control us. Kinda like the movie, Hitch, and the defining moments they talk about in the film.
