i think i have figured out why i like your weekly wrap ups: it's like subscribing to a mini magazine about writing - sure, some of the stuff doesn't apply to me (or doesn't apply YET), but it's all interesting stuff - i know i basically repeat myself every week when i tell you thanks, but i figure that maybe someday, you won't feel like you should do this because no one cares - and, well, *I* care - so there =P

my fave bit from this week comes from Story Knows Best: "Stories are characters in motion." - it's so simple and yet with just one sentence, says what so many people are doing wrong when they feel like their writing is falling flat

i need to just shut up and write on my high fantasy - but at least i'm not still plotting and outlining - now it's just sitting around on the back burner saying "hey - i know the wolves are all soft and fuzzy and stuff, but when you get some time, i could use some love too" =P

Thanks. The hardest part of doing these lists is deciding what to leave out. There are so many great blog posts online, from such a diverse group of writers.
