Depth of Character was awesome - i love answering questions about my character as others ask them - it's awesome because usually i'm coming up with the answer on the fly, but TOTALLY makes things work in the grand scheme of things =D

How Moving is Like Writing a Novel is very relevant right now (since i'm moving - but i've actually never really written a short story, i'm really not sure i could - for me, i STARTED with writing a novel - it's not done, and it's sitting around on the back burner, but all the same - apparently i'm doing it backwards =P
