My pleasure. You did all the hard work writing a great post, all I did was put up a signnpost :)

Thanks as always. The "Hook me, baby" info was exactly what I needed today. I've decided to work on synopsis and query letter while I get over the hard drive losses and get myself back into a state where I can relive what I'd just gone through. The link provided in the post also offers a clear, helpful way to view and create a hook. Now, let's see what I can do!

Me too. Thanks to people like Ken, just because we can't all go to these things, doesn't mean we can't all learn something from them :)

You know, back in May, when I started to compile the first one of these, I thought it would be a once a month thing, but I found so much good stuff out there, I only went back a week to fill the list.

I think blogs are one of the best teaching tools for writers out there.
