My First Words is my fave. The importance of the first line cannot be overstated, but let's not forget the others that follow it.

The article by Bransford on dialogue and the one by Kole on evaluating manuscripts were really helpful, imo. :)

Thank you for your timeliness! As I continue cobbling the author site, I've been wondering: point people to my current Facebook profile, or create a fan page (or "public figure" page, I suppose). Thus, the Writer Unboxed post was perfect for me.
