Gee, I think I may have exhausted myself on that subject. Perhaps I'll just lurk. ;-)

Yes, and it's always a treat to check out what's on your list. I'm glad there's somebody who takes the time to dig them up!

The synopsis tips come in handy for me right now; I just pulled a rough one together, very bare, and it was good to see ways to flesh it out and bring some character to it.

And writing tips like in the Elmore article ... are always good to read and remember.

Thanks again for gathering the links for us who tend to be lazy gatherers ourselves.
