I've often said that we can't soar with eagles while roosting with turkeys,
but nancyfulda has phrased that feeling quite a bit more effectively.

I liked Nancy Fulda's a lot too--it goes to show that you have to dig a little when you're trying to understand a critique. "That Genre Known as Literary" was very good too.

Pick of the week for me was a toss-up between Camille's post on 'Literary' and Rachelle's post on how to get published.

Thanks, Jon - as always, there's a lot of useful information in here. How do you find the time to go through so many blogs? I'll never know, but thank goodness you do! : )

I'm glad you find them useful.

It's really not as much work as you'd think. I'm already reading these blogs so the only extra work involved is collating the ones that make a particular impression on me (though I find I don't have so much time to make as many comments as I'd like on other folks journals these days).

Re: Orgies are like onions

If that had been the title, I'd probably have made it my pick of the week :)

Great link, Rowyn. I'd not seen her blog before. I've added it to my reading list.

Thanks for sharing :)
