If you have a particular favorite among these, please let the author know (and me too, if you have time). Also, if you've a link to a great post that isn't here, feel free to share.

I only made it through half so far because I want to get to some writing now, but I'll be back :)

The first on Intuition and Instruction seems to neatly sum up many discussions that have been going around the board. The Writing Tips is so nicely concrete in its instruction that I have to jot some of them down; concrete reminders are always easier to apply. And, in Guess the Plot, I'm always grateful for sample queries and synopses, especially when the successful and unsuccessful are laid out beside each other. I'll have to go back to these soon.

Glad you find them useful :)

It's amazing how many great posts on writing I've seen here in LJ-land. I wish I had time to explore for more, I'm sure I miss loads.
